Re: sv spool problems

Casting brake or drag? If you mean the drag and you've got braid on the spool, check the braid isn't slipping on the spool. Put a dot on the lip of the spool with a marker pen and pull the braid enough to make the drag appear to slip. If the dot isn't moving, or not moving at the same rate as you're...

New Tatula 100 spool size?

Does anyone know whether the spools from a Tat CT will fit the new 100 reels?

Re: My first Daiwa Tatula LT 1000 New - defective?

Unless you're doing something very peculiar, sounds like the reel's broken or not assembled properly.

Loomis and St Croix both have a talent for producing horrible spinning rod handles. Luckily, you can buy St Croix blanks.

Re: Do you lube your ceramic hybrid BB's?

When I first got my ceramics I tried putting a hint of yellow rocket fuel in them, the reel wouldn't cast at all. Flushed them out and have used them dry ever since. Noisy, but fast.

Re: TRANX 300 HG Handle Play

SOunds like it's not assembled properly. Tightening the nut shouldn't effect the drag.

Re: Whisky river bait company

Don't know how new they are, I ordered some tubes and worms from them a couple of years ago. Very impressed with the tubes and they did a really nice finesse drop shot worm, which appears to be discontinued.

Re: tatula ct noise

Is the spool axle bent a bit and the spool's rubbing on the frame?

Re: Tatula LT vs. Fuego LT spinning

The absolute worst POS fishing reel I've ever owned was an abu spinner. I think it was the Soron? Looked nice, felt smooth...first cast hooked into a monster weakfish and the drag cap stripped right then and there. From what I see...there is absolutely zero reason to look beyond the big 2 when it c...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

St Croix factory build spinning rods all have pretty poor handle designs. I don't know why, but presumably it must be something to do with making them stand out on the shelf. This series of rods looks great aside from the handle design. My last two legend spinning rods got the handles chopped off an...

I have a fuego and ballistic, both LT series. Honestly can't tell much difference between them.

Re: Daiwa Luvias 2500H spool options

I don't imagine a 2004 or any other 2000 size spool would fit, nor the 1003 which is even smaller. You would need a 2500 size spool, so a 2506 is probably the shallowest you could find.
