Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Even though the left side plate of the conquest bfs is smaller, the reel sits up higher on the rod.
I feel the conquest 50 still palms like the smaller reel of the two.

Re: The smallest ultralight spinning reel?

Does anyone know who makes the smallest QUALITY ultralight spinning reel? I am looking for a tiny, well built reel, with a smooth drag. So many of the tiny spinning reels are crap. I would like to find one that is under 5 ounces. Not sure if this is possible though.. Anyone have any info? What reel...

Re: Expride Med

I think the 6'10" is a decent rod. I have one but i dont feel that its stiff enough. The action is fairly soft in my hands. I still prefer the action of my black cumara 6'9" med reaction series. The cumara has more backbone with a good tip action. I use the expride for jerkbaits and poppers. For wal...

Re: Daiwa LT spinning reels

I have noticed that with some new reels these days, sometimes it takes a little breaking in before they get silky smooth. Some of my reels didnt get smooth until after several trips to the lake. I' m not sure if manufacturers are using more grease on the internals or what.

Re: shimano cumara reation

The reaction series excelled at many things.
They can be used for cranking but most models had a fast action.
To me they were great for topwaters and jerkbaits.
I used the 7' heavy for frogs and buzzbaits.

Re: 1000 size shimanos

Thats normally the size I use for bass fishing. I find the 1000 size holds more than enough line for my fishing needs.
I use the 500 for crappie and other smaller fish.
2500/3000 for larger fish like catfish or stripers.

Re: Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting the addermine but was curious how you guys hold your rods and reels. I hold mine right handed with the reel foot between my middle finger and ring finger. Two fingers in front. Two behind. It seems like the handle design favors more fingers in front of the reel. ...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

The new Stellas, in my opinion are one of the best looking spinning reels ever produced.
Just sexy and elegant.

Re: What's next for Shimano???

Since we are all dreaming.
How about a magnesium round reel.
A magnesium 50 size round reel would be awesome.

Re: Exsence vs Exsence Ci4+

Is the spool on the CI4+ a composite material also?
