Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

I had the Graphiteleader Finezza older version but sold it, I was not as crisp as I expected. I own 4 of the Evergreen Salty Sensation (yes you read it right :D ) from their range. I am looking to acquire another 2 versions. I only heard good things about the TIct rods but sticking to Evergreen. I’...

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

The only rod I've ever owned that was made in Japan, with documentation to prove it was a couple of Olympic Graphiteleaders. They actually roll their own blanks in Japan. I know Evergreen uses some of their blanks as well, but I don't know if they're assembled in Japan All my Evergreen rods are mad...

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

I have a KTF Fenwick as well, ver1. I agree it's a nice rod and has all premium components.

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

[quote\] Fenwick Japan has a much bigger lineup. Killer blanks compared to what we get Been thinking about pulling the trigger on a Techno GP for some time now. I realize they are an older rod, origionally fetching $600, now can be had for a mid $200 price. One of the few JDM brands that has a 7'4 ...

Re: Best line for crankbaits??

I use Sufix Super 21 in 13lb and 17lb mainly for shallow cranking between 1-8ft. I used this mono for a year now and very happy with it.

Re: carrying spare baitcaster spools

I always carry spare spools. This is the best option with the foam insert: you can fit two Daiwa or Shimano spools in one and separate them with another foam insert.

Re: Long distance topwater rod

Quick update on this. I got a Shimano Scorpion DC (2011 model) used (until the yen weakens and then the Antares will surely follow) and paired it with the Orochi XX Spinnerbait Special, I run it with 20lb braid, great combo a little bit more length would be good but happy with it so far. Funnily eno...

Re: Long distance topwater rod

Thank you all for the suggestions. I tried this weekend my FX68 with the IS71 spool and 20lb Powerpro. Man, that combo casts well, matches the distance of the spinning combo. I paired it with my flipping stick F7-77 destroyer, not the best long distance caster due the fast action but still very impr...

Re: Long distance topwater rod

Thank you all. TommyG, Goldrod: yes I had that feeling with the IP68 that the brakes are too strong. I have the same feeling with the IS71 vs standard Steez. I have 1016 spool I will try it in the FX68. If none works I will have to buy a new reel. :D Cracker, how did I measure it? Google maps has a ...
