No affiliation, I have two of the CS10 match reels and prefer them to my TDM's. For the money I think they offer good value for money particularly when you look at what some manufacturers are charging for spare spools ;)
I wouldn't disagree with you mate, given your obvious angling pedigree/experience and all round decent geezer, but I would question the longevity of said reel against say my Shimmies especially in a match situation etc etc(y)

I’ve got the 620 extremity and the 620 intensity, both cracking reels for what you want to do, pick either, to suit your budget,

How's that new SLR Mike? Been out trying it out any more?:unsure:
Only been once more, fishing at distance, but it’s right up there, as a favourite, I’m fishing a local lake for winter, full of roach and Rudd, so it’s 9/10 and 11ft rods for a while, practising my speed fishing, chucking tiny feeders every 20/30 seconds and catching a fish a Chuck, great fishing, I fed 30 pints of groundbait last weekend over two days😭😭😭that reminds me, I’ve lost my clicker, I’ll have to buy a new one😭😭😭, more expense😭😭😭👍👍👍👍👍

What do you think guys, new reels and new rods coming January for Shimano? I think they didnt release feeder reels and surfcasting reels for the last 3-4 years now. May i should wait a few months

..Obviously the "Practical/WIFE/BankManger" answer is YES to waiting until after christmas, even if you don't buy the Shimmys you can get cheap deals in the sales.
The correct answer is of course, Buy now and look at the shimano range in January and buy again!!! ;):)
