Re: Breaking Free of Middle Child Syndrome, Abu Garcia's Revo4 STX

Did you find the IVCB to be more difficult to dial in than other centrifugal brakes or is the thumbing of the spool and wind more of a general statement about centrifugal brakes? I've had plenty of centrifugal reels and I understand that it is normal to ride your thumb over the spool to slow it at ...

Re: Breaking Free of Middle Child Syndrome, Abu Garcia's Revo4 STX

because the negative reviews all seem to focus on the ease of 'dialing in' the reel for casting to prevent backlashes. Was the reel difficult to adjust?

Re: Breaking Free of Middle Child Syndrome, Abu Garcia's Revo4 STX

great review, but when you click on the link to tacklewarehouse at the bottom of the page to buy the reel, there are 4 reviews on it and they are all negative. What are they missing? Before you consider any so called review, you need to consider the source. I can't speak to individuals who post the...

Re: Spro's Dean Rojas Bronzeye Poppin Frog

Interesting choice of a frog rod. Orochi XX Diablo Spec R. I know those rods are versatile but I had no idea they could pull 1/2oz frog duty. I use rods in unconventional fashion all the time these days just to see what they can or can't do. Sometimes it makes it into articles, sometimes not. :lol:
