Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

Tackle Advisors on youtube claims a new Tatula 100 that is smaller, weighs 6.9oz, has zero adjuster, and different knobs. I believe it. I heard some time ago that the Tatula CT would be replaced. I also heard that from another source that there would be something new coming out this year with a spi...

Re: Best Custom Handle company?

DaveJ Are you sure about that Dave? I thought Semper Fi was just one guy (Benson), I think. Those were good...

Re: Project T

Like I been saying just have a Zillion L/wind or cone style tapered level wind and have it center the worm gear everytime you cast when clutch is pressed then that be money. No need for T wing. Y'all listening big D. Agreed. The TWing does little to nothing for me. The maybe 5% increase in casting ...

Just another reel built on the original TWing frame that almost no one likes.

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Went to Okeechobee for the first time Friday-Sunday with my dad, uncle, and cousin. The artificial bite was nearly non existent, though I managed a couple each day just to prove I could do it. Caught a new personal best on a wild shiner though on Saturday. ~8lb 12oz Featured a little ways down the p...

Re: SV Spools for Older Daiwas?

I don't believe there are SV spools available for those platforms.

The DIY spools are excellent alternatives though and are made in the Pixy and OG Zillion diameters. There is even a deeper option on the Zillion size I think.

You can tell by how much of the spool is visible in each reel.


They just aren't sitting flat in the grass. One is rotated back more than the other.

Re: The “Curado” Series extends to Bass Rods

For some reason, these rods just look "right" to me. Pretty much as classic as it comes with modern components. http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Shimano_Curado_Casting_Rods/descpage-CDC.html Ideal setup for value rods IMO. Has anyone fished them yet? How do they compare with 13 Omen's or Dai...

Re: Daiwa x 103 HiL parts to TDZ 103ML ?

I'm not familiar with the HiL. Is it an air metal or the USDM roundish style TDX?

USDM TDX spools won't work in a TDZ (they aren't very good spools anyway), but TDZ spools will work in the TDX with the correct sized bearing if my memory is correct.

I'm pretty certain the Tatula HD has a slightly wider frame so the OG Tatula spools don't fit.

Re: New fireline fused 8 carrier

I'm interested in trying it out. If it is like original Fireline it is probably 30% stronger than its advertised test.

Re: Question about BFS rods and the specifically shorter rods.

I have a 7' Royal Spirit Dagger 3 piece UL as well. Great little rod for the under $40.
