Fish the Tibors, will your Charltons to your kids. Got 5 Charltons in a safe deposit box..Only flyfishing gear I got that ever appreciated.. :lol: It's a shame a good well taken care of rod or reel doesn't appreciate like a firearm.. Spend 700-1000 on a firearm, wait ten years, at the least you break even..

I say fish them both. Weren't made to sit in boxes or safes, besides, those charltons and makos have capabilities drag-wise that put them in a different class altogether....and you can't enjoy that if you don't fish them! Heck, they even laugh at a 5 month saltbath, growing barnacles! ;) Just ask Ugly Betty.... And that way, you get to fish more. :D

Ditto X2 on Smoot's comment.

And, for the most, become much more the better
