Shimano Biomaster 2000

Bought this quite some time back. Fresh water outfit for NN - Shimano Biomaster 2000 & Daiwa Ardito.

Took around 4 visits to Sykt Kepong to finally settle with this combo. Was contemplating between the Abu range of rods and also Shimano, and Shimano Symetre & Twinpower for the reel. After considering the designs, budget and functionality, finally settled with these.

The Ardito is definitely the lightest among the lot and the lack of colours (black & silver) gives it a classy look that will not go out of style. Blanks wise no idea, am no doctor in this area. I just decide by flipping it and feel its stiffness. As for the Biomaster, its the latest of the Shimano spinners at that point of time, and it has all the latest specs without going above 4 digits for the price tag.

Bought the Bassart handle for the Conquest a while ago but never put it on. Fit perfectly on to the Biomaster. :-) But it won't stay on for long. ;-)
Native Arms - Black and silver all over. Nice... :-)
Loaded with 10lbs Fireline. Don't really like the line... high memory...
