Topic: Owen's Reel vs. Tango Ultimate Reel
Message: Posted by: Percy Boyd (Oct 2, 2015 04:15PM)
I've been scouring the net for weeks looking for a great utility reel. Hocus Pocus has the Owen's and the Tango. Anyone have experience with both of these. I wish I could afford to just get both but alas....

There's mixed reviews about the Tango: http://www.penguinmagic.com/p/3835#reviews

The Tango was recommended because it can attach anywhere - I need it to attach to my jacket, and because it's apparently quiet. I would like to hear more myself.

I would love to know this too.

Originally had the Tango. Pleased at first but things started to fall apart on it. Wouldn't recommend it now.

I'm still using P&Ls that I bought EONS ago! I bought some Kirkendahls for spares, a few years ago. I'm using one Kirkedahl for "Serp". Otherwise the P&Ls are doing just fine.
