Anyone on here using or know anyone using the new hybrid greensticks? Are they as good and strong as the fiberglass ones? I'm thinking about pulling the trigger and setting myself up with one but all my friends have the older fiberglass ones and I don't want to be the guinea pig. The hybrids are only about 20lbs or so lighter. I was told the direct drive waterman reels are the best since I'm not looking to set the boat up with hydraulics. Anyone use another type of electric bandits? Does the electric bandit really have the balls to reel in bft?
