Re: Shimano Tranx 300/301 or Daiwa Lexa 300HD or Lexa Winn 300?

I personally prefer mag breaks over centrifugal, but I don’t care much for the standard magforce in the lexa. For big baits, I like shimano reels. Had a lexa 300 for a few years and sold it. I just got a tranx 400 and it palms much better than the lexa. Haven’t fished it yet but it feels better than...

Re: Which size 15 exist should I get?

Thanks for the reply. Looks like the 3012 is sold out. I’ll go with the 2505

Which size 15 exist should I get?

With the 15 exist spinning reels on sale at TW, I thought I’d get one to pair with my Megabass hedgehog for dropshotting. I currently have a Daiwa theory 2506 on it. I mostly cast and don’t do much vertical fishing. Should I go with the 2003 or 2505 size? I use 8-10 lb braid, either nanofil or nanob...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I was showing great restraint from buying the Alphas air stream, but I don’t think I can hold back anymore. I’ve found myself more enamored with wild trout fishing than bass lately.

Re: QUESTION: Daiwa Tatula/Zillion TWS -> Braid -> Fluoro Topshot

I can’t get a splice knot threw the t-wing while retrieving. I’ve been doing braid with about 6 feet of fluoro, but this season I’m doing about 1/3 spool of braid and fill the rest with fluoro. I’m coming close to the splice knot on a long cast.

Re: spool bearing pin removal tool

Obviously, I wasn’t paying attention to the diagram. My bad. I really should invest in quality calipers. I’ve just been eyeballing the pin and the pin hole.

Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

I use a hedgehog evoluzion. Pretty amazing rod. Considering an nrx dsr822 for the sake of comparison but I’m intrigued by the Megabass destroyer ambitious. An F0 would be a blast to fish with.

Re: spool bearing pin removal tool

I’ve been using the older hedgehog tool for a while. It works fine for me.

A little off topic, but is there a direction that the spool pin should be removed/installed? In other words, is there a slight taper to the pin or pinhole?

Re: Daiwa Tatula HD 153 size

The Tatula HD 153 Spool does fit the Tatula HD 150 and the Tatula HD 200. Found these answers from Hedgehog Studio before purchasing one for my HD 200. I've installed the spool, and it does indeed fit fine. I did have to pull out one of the metal spacers in the side plate to achieve perfect spool c...

Thanks fellas. Buoyant, no salt, lots of resistance. I'll try some trailers out.

What jig trailer for slowest fall?

Looking for a trailer to slow down the fall of pitchin and flippin jigs. I usually use a beaver style bait as a trailer on 3/8-1/2 oz jigs but I want to get a slower fall. Thinking about using rage craws or zoom ultra vibes. What does everyone else use to get their jigs to fall slower?

ZPI or type-r+ spool for Zillion sv tws

Picking up a Zillion sv TWS soon. Looking for opinions on what spool to go with. I’m looking at either a ZPI NRC001-M or a tdz type r+ spool. I’ll be mostly pitching 3/8 - 1/2 oz jigs and creatures with 12 lb fluoro. I’d like to be able to make a long cast when necessary.

Re: Tatula LT 2500D vs. 4000

I have a Fuego LT 3000. Same diameter spool as my Theory 2506. Wished I had picked up the 4000 instead.
