Re: Do I need to change reels or line?

You should be getting substantially more distance with the weight range of swimbaits you're describing (providing you have the rod to handle them). Of course, if they're multi-jointed, "helicoptering" would enter into the equation and then the distances may vary a lot. Overall, any option...

Re: Built for Big Baits, the Beast that is the Daiwa Lexa Type-WN 400H

Dropped the "1" in front of 5.3oz when giving the measured weight of the reel in the initial specs table. :-$

Re: Spro's Mike McClelland McStick 95 Rip Bait

Cal, I use snaps all the time, systematically removing the split ring from lures that come with one. I'm like to know under what circumstances you prefer to tie to the split ring. Maybe I'm missing something?
Thanks!

Re: Spro's Mike McClelland McStick 95 Rip Bait

Any particular reason why you use both a split ring and a snap simultaneously on this lure? [-X

Re: Best finesse popper?

Daiwa's T.D.Popper ZERO has been my favorite for years. Good thing I got a bunch way back when it was produced, since you can't find them anymore. Translucent smelt does the job!

Re: Daiwa J-Braid???

After two months of regular use, this line is now in a dead heat for my favorite with the Sufix 832. Still smooth and silent and just soft enough to cast very well without line wraps as long as I'm careful. Not a break yet with the 15 pound test, including a 17 pound Northern, but then, I don't try ...

Re: Daiwa J-Braid???

Strangely enough, I got myself a spool of #15 J-Braid in CHARTREUSE and the darn thing doesn't bleed at all! Not a trace of color on my fingers when I first put it on my reel while pinching it, still no bleeding after a couple of sessions on the water. Go figure! Got a spool in green too but I haven...

Re: A First Look Inside Shimano’s New Curado Compact High Sp

"the most compact Curado Series reels that we have seen to date" Actually smaller than the 50/51E series? :shock:

Re: Z man Zinkerz not floating ?

Hey guys , Just recently started to do some Ned rigging , bought some Zinkerz under the impression that they are buoyant and float after being in the water after a bit . I bought a few packages and soaked them in water for about 2 hrs . Only 2 floated out of the entire 18 . Pretty disappointed , is...

Shockwave and S-Caper lures

Yo, Wolbugger!
The "total score" indicated at the beginning of the review and that shown in the summary table at the end are different.
Could you take a look? :shock:

Thanks!

Re: Swimming Heads : Strike King's Red Eye Shad

So, are the hooks VMCs or Eagle Claws? Does Strike King use different brands of hooks for different size lures? :?:
Thanks, Cal!
