I'm not condoning the Baseball juicers or Lance Armstrong for using steriods......the bottom line there is that those guys did have to actually make contact with the ball and win races.
Not to mention climbing l'Alpe d'Huez ... I mean, really, what sane person attempts that? :lol:

Re: Educate Me on TD-Z 103GL-RZ Limited Edition

I only wish there was an option to get faster gears than the 6.3:1. Hey... at the time that platform was originally made, 6.3:1 was super high speed! :lol: :lol: :lol: :lol: Luckily the torque of the 6.3:1 set makes it perfect for winching fish from heavy cover!

Re: Round Reel Question

To me a round reel should be round all the way around. When you incorporate a big, clunky, square gearbox on the side it ceases to become a round reel and starts becoming something different.

Re: Round Reel Question

I don't know if I consider the Ryoga to be a truly round reel since it has that big gearbox hanging off the side to accommodate the larger gear set, but that's just me. It's more of a round/LP hybrid. The Ryoga and Monoblock certainly are round reels. The size of the gearbox does not define the ree...

Re: questions from a newbie

Re: Forum Restrictions

The size limit is 400tall by 600wide @ 72dpi... you can't expect us to host photos of unlimited size if membership and access to the forum is free.

That being said, I just tried to upload a screen shot and it didn't work, so I pinged JIP to make sure something didn't change.
