    What would you do?

    So I have the green light from the significant other to spend some money for Valentineís Day. If you had he option to buy an ultrex or a helix 12 mega SI. What would you do? I mostly fish shallow but I will fish any depth I see fish.

    I have both, and if I didn't the Ultrex would be my first purchase of the 2.

    You do know, take what you spend and multiply by at least 1.5. That’s what she gets to spend. So a 2500 TM will cost you about 6k.

    Does the significant other get your permission to make a purchase?

    I'd buy both, I don't have to ask anyone if I can spend my money!!
