Re: Spinning reel question

So I just checked and my 1000, C2000, and C3000 are all the same size. Through different years and models the foot length is constant (all shimano). I don’t have a non compact 3000 to compare to.

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner recommendation.

I am thinking I may get one like this: http://www.ebay.ca/itm/New-Stainless-Steel-10L-Liter-Industry-Heated-Ultrasonic-Cleaner-Heater-Timer/172240320854?ssPageName=STRK%3AMEBIDX%3AIT&_trksid=p2055119.m1438.l2649 I think the larger size will allow me to clean the carbs from my small engines in ad...

Re: Flourocarbon leader

I think you will find that any fluoro leader material will be superior to line. I used to think they were just selling you less line for more money but having tested for a couple of seasons I am a firm believer that the leaders are more abrasion resistant and stronger at the knot for a given size. I...

Re: Exsence dc xg

It is my understanding that the only difference between the new Excense DC and the Antares DC is the use of materials that resist saltwater corrosion. You can find the TT review of the Antares here: http://tackletour.com/review16shimantaresdc.html I would expect them to fish the same but no hands on...

Ultrasonic cleaner recommendation.

Hi All, I am looking to pick up an ultrasonic cleaner to add to my reel maintenance supplies but I’m not sure what to buy. When I look back to older posts the last replies I see were from 2014 and were for Umax branded ones which aren’t available where I have been looking. Here are my questions: Is ...

Re: shimano Sustain FI vs Twinpower XD

I don’t think you will notice much of a difference between the two for corrosion resistance. Neither is made to spend too much time underwater and you are going to have to be really on top of your maintenance post trip to keep them running smoothly.

Re: Advice in crankbait rod... but... two pieces...

Like others have said, need a bit more info. What size crankbaits? How short do you need it to pack? Budget?

Re: Round vs Low Profile reels. Which one do you prefer?

I am a round reel guy but I fish more towards the heavy end of things with BC gear. Migrating back to almost all spinning for lighter techniques.

Re: Higher end BFSish reel: Scorpion 70 BFS, Aldebaran 50, SS SV105, or ??

Maybe have a look at the JDM Shimano Conquest BFS? Not sure if your into round reels but if you want to spoil yourself this is the way in my opinion.

Re: The hot girl at the end of the bar... Tatsu

I ran 20lb Tatsu on a Chronarch Ci4+ for a while and it's by far the best fluoro I've ever used. I think it has between 15 and 17lb diameter, but it seems smaller. It has a completely different feel to it, and casts better than mono in the same diameter. It's amazing stuff, just wish I could afford...

Re: Gloomis rod above NRX????!!!!!

sorry, did you just suggest eva/foam on a 650 dollar rod? stylish? appealing? I love this place sometimes :) :) :) I like cork handles for bottom contact rods but prefer Eva for anything else. This includes rods well into the $600+ price range. To each their own. The cork seems right on the Conques...

Re: Vision 110 and 110 Jr with 2 trebles

Is it acceptable to just clip the hook down past the barb for one of the trebels? Replacing the stock ones may be best though, I have broken off a ton of those outbarb ones with pike.

Re: Shimano 2017 Icast rumor mill ...

Do any of you guys know if there is any new or updated trolling gear coming from shimano? I had tried to buy some Taloras a few weeks ago and they weren't available from Shimano. The store had thought there might be something new coming out at icast.
