Re: I've seen the light. low gear ratio for shallow cranks

It's easier to slow down with a fast reel than speed up (efficiently and effectively) with a slow reel. .02 Eh, I find slowing down with a fast reel odd with large resistance baits. No way I'd be cranking a 6XD all day on a 7:1 reel. Work smarter not harder :lol: agreed,, but the op was asking abou...

Re: braid in clear water

use a thin 15# braid if you don't want lose lures.... top water isn't going to easily be lost unless your cruzing over some nasty mil-foil or something like that and your getting pulled into it on the strike..... anything fast moving youll get those reaction hits whether its braid or not.... but you...

Re: spoons for bass

Hopkins spoons are may favorite but they all seem to work. I don't use a swivel and get line twist on occasion…especially in current. Sometimes I like to take a dressed treble hook and slide it on the line then tie my spoon on…saw that on some video years ago…works good. Spoons can catch everything...

Re: How do you palm a baitcasting reel?

Re: Son wants a low profile casting reel

Unfortunately the only t3 available are right handed Is website for TW out of date? The website reflects that they have the 6.3:1 T3 in a lefty but they're out of the 7.1:1. I haven't called to confirm. I thought the original post was speaking to the t3 ballistic for $109 ... mistake on my part......

Re: Son wants a low profile casting reel

Shimano curado or chronarch 51e or the curado 201 ... cant miss on any of those. .... just picked up a 201 for $149 so if you keep your eyes open there well under your budget also.

Re: curado I vs curado e

There must be something up .. that is not normal to hear or feel knocking ... its probably the smoothest feeling of my curados. .. I had a similar problem with a g6 and it turned out the knob shaft had come lose at the handle

Re: 13 fishing cranking rods vs shimano

Got a chsnce to cast a dobyns crankbait rod yesterday. .. and handled my first full glass rod theday before that. ... I must admit the tc4 glass/graphite shimano has is truly a middle ground between all graphite or all glass.
