Re: Forgive me daiwa

Hi there, I used both Daiwa and Shimano top of their products, I switched definitively to Shimano after I got busted in 3 consecutive trips to Brazil for peacock bass and 1 trip to Mexico for largemouth.

Re: Trip to Japan

Its been a while since i had the opportunity to visit Japan. Its an unbelievable place to shop for tackle. Tokyo was our destination and i did visit Mount Fuji. I didn't get to fish however there were tackle shops on every corner. Learn to use the transit system and be careful.

Re: Braid with leader for crankbaits

It depends on the cover. Heavy wood cover i would use fluorocarbon or heavy mono. Fishing deep water cover i would use a combination of braid with a fluorocarbon leader. Using braid only is an easy way to lose expensive baits when fishing heavy wood cover.

Reels, not so.


Which means prices should continue dropping.....IMO!

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

This spool structure has fewer parts and handles heavy loads when cranking. Its supported by three bearings. Right?

Re: So...I did a thing...

The utralight ugly stick 7' foot medium light is inexpensive but very durable and will handle 1/8 ounce baits. It provides fly rod like action if you hook Mr Big Stuff....lol

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Well I guess the reaming is almost over.................I might have to buy a MGXtreme 2 on eBay. Get a JDM LV7. Smaller reel, and better overall for light baits. What about the new Daiwa-Bait-Reel-Black-Bath-Steeves-SV-TW-1012SV-XH Would this one work well in Russia or China? https://www.ebay.com/...
