    Since this looks dead, I'll add to it. Just picked up some 1 1/2 oz tungsten punching weights and skirts, and reupped on some plastics. Got a couple spots I want to check out this weekend that's all matted up.

    Probably going to pick up a couple new reels this weekend. Been eyeing the new Shimano citicas, and I had planned on grabbing another lews bb1.

          Speaking of lights.. I bought this headlamp last summer:

          https://www.amazon.com/Vitchelo-V800.../dp/B01AYDU2IW

          Have used it extensively for over a year now. It is the best headlamp i've ever used. Great battery life, one hell of a beam on the highest setting, comfortable. And best of all, extremely affordable. I was kind of leery going with some off-brand Chinese knock off, but the reviews were true. Hell of a headlamp for the price!!

            Been using these binos for the past 3 months. Vortex Viper HD 10x42

            https://www.amazon.com/Vortex-Optics.../dp/B00GSNSPKK

            Once again, INCREDIBLE binos for the price. Best of all they have a no-questions asked lifetime warranty!

              Nice!

              Headlamps have always been an 'oh, shit .. I forgot I lost mine .. I'll just buy this one' moment at REI for me. Petzl and Black Diamond both make good little units. Usually a touch more expensive, though, so that's great.

                Woah -- I haven't gone over the $100 mark with binos yet -- but I got these for the SO over turkey-spendy weekend for $60 -- usually $230: https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B0...?ie=UTF8&psc=1

                I have a larger pair of 10x40 Nikons, but she found them too heavy to carry around her neck (spine issues). So far, she loves them but I find the fov far too small.

                  Good timing, I was just about to pull the trigger on some binos. Realized after Chappaquiddick that being able to see where the beach turns into not-beach (also known as ocean) would be nice to know before I'm right on it.

                  Thinking 8x42 Leupolds - made in Japan, easily handholdable, wide FOV, still kinda useful for looking at the Moon and shit.

                    Consider the Vortex Diamondbacks, they are a grade below mine but excellent value for the money.
