I am looking to buy a new mooching reel and I don't want to spend more than $350.00. Right now I am leaning towards the Amundson TMX5, is there anyone out there that has one? if so, what are your thoughts on it?
Thanks

I fished with two of the Amundson TMX5 reels for the last three summers with customers. Frankly I like the reels for the the large line capacity and the very positive drag settings( no creeping ) even in extreme tidal conditions. However the handles are extremely awkward to hold on to in wet conditions and ladies definitely have problems with how bulky they are. I've had to take my reels down to River Sportsman here in Campbell River for a conversion to Islander handles which has been a great fix. But the reels really get beat up in the course of a summers guiding and they look rather faded out and worn.

I think anything being heavily used for business will always show wear and tear . I call them battle scars . Wear them proudly.
