Re: Where are the shimanos?

Stile SS Hg- Loving these little reels. Super smooth, lightweight, aluminum frame, brass gears, carbon drag washers and the drag clicker is sweet when those redfish take off. Definitely works great as a finesse reel. Spool is slightly shallower than my Curado/Core 50s, but has plenty of power to tak...

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

Nice red! Yep, I have had a gator decide to eat my bait a few times, mostly on Seminole and the Stick Marsh, but in a couple of ponds down in south GA, too....and never anything that size! Unless they are 3 ft or less, I don't even attempt to retrieve my lure lol! Thanks man! Lol, They do love to e...

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

Fishing in the marsh in the spring is a lot of fun, and nothing better to throw through all the milfoil than a chatterbait. There's a really nice variety of bass, redfish, and trout in there...among other things. This redfish crushed that chatterbait off a solid rip out of the grass, and felt like h...

Re: Favorite Mid-Range Crankbait (8-12 feet)

Lucky Craft SKT DR. Deflects great, and has a tight action that works well any time of year. Close second would be the 1.5DD for those depths.

Re: Metanium vs Chronarch

Drag washers are also different between the 2 reels. Chronarch comes with carbon fiber washers, while the Metanium comes with the Dartanium washers. Really not an issue because they are both smooth, until those Dartaniums start to fall apart. I'd have to agree with the other posts though, if you are...

Re: Breaking open the Chronarch MGL

I'd say they compare nicely as far as smoothness. No idea how much it increases pressure though. I swapped to CarbonTex in one of my CI4s and really can't tell the difference. I wouldn't swap them out unless you are having issues like the OP was having. The Metanium comes with the old Dartanium drag...

Re: Breaking open the Chronarch MGL

That's the one. One question though, why swap out the drag? It comes with carbon from the factory that are very smooth. Looking for more drag pressure? What do you mean by carbon?Or did you mean to say it comes with carbon tex drag washers stock? They aren't CarbonTex, but they are factory carbon f...

Re: A.T.A.K. 120

A friend of mine has one, they are pretty sweet. Fast, stable and easy to rig. Also tracks well. Only issue I've seen is that they take on a lot of water in the hatches when it gets a little rough out. Didn't notice if that included into the hull itself.

Re: Lucky Craft RTO Tiny Squarebill

Hoping to bring this one back to life...I will say the .07's are fish catchers. Really wish the .05s would come back I need to try the 0.7's soon, look like good baits. It's a shame they discontinued the 0.5 and then release these sizes instead though. I have a bunch of 0.5s with broken lips that I...

Re: Gen 1 Revo STX Spool bent pin

I don't repair reels, so forgive a question from a person who doesn't know any better. I would have thought that the spool pin was harder than the brass pinion it engages. Won't the pinion be messed up, too? By the way, thanks for that great source for parts! I would say that you are correct, thoug...

Scrounger Style Jigs

Looking at buying more Scrounger style jigs to fill the box, and have used the Tennessee Tremor jigs in the past and liked them a lot. Only thing I didn't like was they did not have a bait keeper(most Scroungers do not for some reason) and hate dealing with trailers that slide down. Looking at the H...
