4LB Yo Zuri Hybrid is slightly thicker than 7LB Sunline Sniper FC.

Re: BFS Line Conundrum

Here is what Hedgehog Studios says about using the trout spool for the 15 Aldebaran BFS XG Limited. They are telling us to use a PE line.

Re: What rod for someone who MAYBE wants to try BFS?

My first BFS rod was a G-Loomis CR721 IMX. Although it is not technically called a BFS rod, it is a L powered rod that easily tosses a 2.5g lure.

Buying spare parts

If you wanted to buy spare parts for your Shimano Aldebaran, knowing that Shimano doesn't make spare pare parts forever, what parts would you buy?

Re: UL bass in Africa

We have Tilapia in Florida too. They are spunky fighters and I think that I have caught all of my Tilapia on Strike King Bitsy Minnows.
