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?

Re: What's next for Shimano???

Shimano needs a reel in the $130 - $150 price range.
Something between the SLX and curado.
A new citica would definitely fit the bill.

Re: Lews

I currently have six Lews reels in my lineup. For the money they are hard to beat.
Of course I have many shimanos and use to have Daiwa as well.
And about the knobs, shimano's septon knobs will turn to gummy like tree sap in no time at all too.
I prefer the daiwa I knobs. Mainly the cork versions
