I finally decided to bite the bullet and purchase my first pin reel and I was not disappointed. I have been considering this for about 10 years but the price has kept me from buying one in the past. Doing a lot of reading I finally decided that the Raven Matrix XL was in my price range. I spent about a week in my backyard learning to cast and only had to cut my line once to my surprise. On my second trip to the river I managed to go 1 for 1 with a nice little steely. My fishing buddy and I spoke to a number of other fishermen and 1 person that managed a fish. Needless to say Im hooked and cant wait for my next trip out. Sorry no picture.
