I clean the guide inserts with a q tip and alcohol. The blank gets plexus and a nice soft cloth to clean
And polish.

So far my favorite for ml rods is 15 832 and medium rods 20. I run a 2000 size reel on the ml and 2500 on the medium.

Re: Good job Daiwa!

I think they started high because the enthusiasts are the talkers. We are the ones in the know that recommend and push products. How many times have you been asked which reel to get.

No need to cut off a twist lock. Just spin it off.

Re: Need help picking a reel

So if you have all that money invested in line and spools why not get another reel that uses the same diameter spool. For that money you can get an sv-103 and use the spools between all the reels you own.

Best Ryoga reel cover Lefty option???

Just ordered a RYOGA 1016 and it comes with a bag but i would like to find a high quality reel cover for it while mounted. I fish left handed so that would help a lot.

Re: Small Swimbait Rod Choice

Go to a shop and handle them all to see which feels best in your hands. It’s hard to find a shop in NE Georgia that stocks any swimbait sticks, hence the reason for this request. Tackle Trap would be the closest one, it’s abour 4 hrs away. Easily sorted. Speak to Tackle Trap about local lakes, visi...

Re: What up with the ugly rods?

People like what they like. Personally, I like the St. Croix Legend series rods. Color, handle, and all. All I own are Legend Torunaments and Avids. Both great looking, top quality rods. I’ll pull the trigger on a couple of Legend Elites in the near future. And they’re made in the USA. To each his ...

Re: What up with the ugly rods?

The top of the line St Croix are ugly colours with terrible handles. Got to be marketing to make them distinctive on the shelf. If they were all a nice simple black with a well thought out handle, then they wouldn't stand out, no matter how much I might prefer them! :lol: And that's why I fish the ...

Re: Small Swimbait Rod Choice

if you're open to the idea of a custom built rod take a look at building one on a Phenix X-13 blank. I use mine for the exact same size of baits you're looking to throw. good luck on your decision making, lets us know what you ended up with Looking to build on this blank to use for 10xds as smaller...

Re: CF handle color?

It's possible to make one of any color you want. Get a piece and cut a handle It will not be swept. Seen a few guys make 1/12 scale rc parts with cf blank material and a router. They said it took some practice and sharp high quality bits. http://dragonplate.com/mobile/categories.asp?cID=228 This web...
