Tsurinoya XF50 reel

My Tusrinoya XF50 reel showed up today. I had just enough time to spool it with 8# line and tie on a 1/8 Oz roadrunner head and plastic body. I used a 6’ light action Bass Pro crappie rod for comparison, because I had two identical rods. On rod#2 I put a Pixy Type R with the same line. I also have a...

Re: What the Finesse?!? A Sub $150 BFS Stick? Meet The 47

I have one of these rods and love it! I always lean toward a lighter action rod anyway. Until this one, my favorite was a Kistler Carbon Steel 6'6" inshore casting rod. These two rods have a very similar action.

Re: Roboworm Ned Worms

Ive been using an odd plastic for a NED rig. overstockbait.com has Z-Man 5” grubs cheap right now. Pink sparkle and copper penny colors only. They float just like a TRD, and stand straight up off the bottom on a shroom jig head. It’s kind of a dual threat bait, work it like a swimbait, or kill it an...

Re: Daiwa Zillion handle

Thanks ... I’ve always just replaced complete handles before. Do I need a special tool to get the caps off? I don’t want to scratch things up being a dumbass.

Daiwa Zillion handle

I just picked up a Zillion HD TW. It has those huge foam knobs and I’d like to swap them for more normal sized knobs.

How do you remove the knobs?

Will any of the Daiwa RCS knobs fit?

Or would I be better off to get a whole new handle assembly?

Re: Looking for a low cost ML casting rod

I ordered a Kuying Teton through Ali-Baba. It arrived today, looks great unfortunately it broke before I could make a single cast. Mounted a reel and a 1/16 Oz roadrunner. On the back cast the rod broke about 8 inches forward of the ferrule joint. I opened a “dispute” with Ali-baba, we will see how ...

The Tatula CT100P Gear Set is 5.5:1 and drops right into it.


I’ve got one that’s been tuned up, I like it but it’s an 8:1 ratio. Would love to make it a 5:1 or as close as possible.

Where would I get these gears?

Has anyone else bought any of these? They are $14 on the website, but under $5 in the Wal Marts stores, where I’ve found them. The bigger stores seem to hav them, always in a fairly small box. They will have lots of floating pins minnow baits, I haven’t bought any of those. But I have found about a ...

The best true ultralight I have is a 6’ Daiwa Presso, with a 1500 size Aird reel. I’ve used it with both 2 and 4 # line. Caught a lot of fish with it, up to a 3# s...
