Re: Any baits out there that "walks" by itself?

Are you looking for a top water, or a glide bait? I believe Deps offers a few self walking baits.

Re: Tatula Elite Rods

I won't be of great service, but I own the 6'9 top water rod. I have a T3 1016 on it, and it balances right on the front of the hood. As for sensitivity, obviously this particular rod won't be the best to judge by. If I were to purchase a rod, looking for sensitivity, I'd wait for the new Tatula. I...

Re: Daiwa SS Air vs Daiwa SV Light for BFS

The SV Light is what you want if casting 3/8 oz. More line capacity, yet plenty capable of casting your intended range. The spool should also be stronger. The feel of the reel itself will be more similar than not.

Re: Reels for Better Distance for Lighter Baits

60% spool, 40% rod. The reel itself has little to do with it, other than how it accommodates said spool.

Re: Post purple

So maybe I am behind, but I am the kind of person who finds out what I don't know even if it is embarrassing... So why are those guides that way? It seems like that would destroy casting distance, but I remember some other company releasing FW rods like that too. I understood for saltwater where yo...

That's just sick. I also have matching reels with custom rods, some reels painted. It's a sickness. Love the combo, except the knobs if I'm being honest. Cork or something black would set it on fire

Steez SV103 feels more solid to me, as it should due to frame material.

Re: Between daiwa sv light ltd 8.1 and shimano scorpion bfs xg

I am not sure of the SV Light's frame material, but I know it is the same body style as the SS/SV and Steez SV ($400 one). These reels are Japanese made models (not Thailand like mid and lower tier Daiwa's) and feel great. My SS/SV has aluminum gears and what some describe as hollow, but I have exp...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

Seems like a rod 1st scenario. Definitely need something with a softer tip to load and cast, but don't want to lose to much backbone. I can't help though, as most of my rods are custom. Is 65 lb braid necessary? Could you get away with 50, or even 40? For me, the perfect reel in this situation would...

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

I've always said I could replace pretty much all of my reels with Alphas/SV105's. Just about perfect. Would lose my mind if they released that reel with a G1 spool, bigger handle, knobs, etc. Best thing is that you can pretty much add all of that if you want. I really like the levelwind tracking ba...
