Re: nanofil upgrade

Gliss is a nice line. Color fades pretty quick. The line is really quiet coming through the guides. I used 2lb Nanofil on my Extreme BFS setup. No real problems except tying leader knots. The line can be difficult to get a leader knot to not slip. I now have been using 3lb Sufix Nanobraid. It been ...

Re: BFS Fluoro vs Braid Pros and Cons

For "braid", I was using 2lb Nanofil for a while. It casts nice, is strong and, served me well. I absolutely HATED tying leader knots in the field with it. I have switched to 3lb Sufix Nanobraid and it has been nice. Way easier to tie joining knots with. It takes a considerable amount of force to br...

Re: 1016 BFS Reel

T3 can be found cheap and, you can sell the RCS 1016 spool it comes with for about 50 bucks.

Re: NRX 9th Year at ICast 2019 / Revamp?

What about using the same blank and using SS Sic or even Ti Sic guides? Would reduce costs. No tooling/engineering mandrels or any of that R&D. That would also save on costs.

Could do a new reel seat or whatever else floats peoples boats.

The 801/851c would be great!!!

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

There has been a lot of talk about how the Steez CT performs. The insides overall are pretty much the same as the Steez SV TW. Biggest change would be with the main gear. It has ridges in the inner rim of the main gear that a spring loaded pin rubs on to create the buzz sound when the drag pulls ou...

Re: Millionaire CT SV

What's the converted price to US dollar? PayPal also release a new policy change saying that they will charge 3.25% on currency conversion. They didn't say of they were gonna use the same shady exchange rate system they got. Theres a way around all that. Change your primary currency to the country ...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Has anyone tried their CT with heavier lures yet? My all-around pond hoping rod is a 783c and I have tried about 6 reels on it and never found “the one”. The issue I have is that about 1/3 of the time I am casting/pitching a weightless Trickworm (1/4oz) and for another 1/3 of the time I am casting/...

Some are saying they may all share a very similar, if not same spool. We will need to get our hands on the Millionaire spool to truly find out I guess.

Re: 16ALD15 for 16 Aldebaran BFS - do you need the bearing?

You need at least 6 magnets. The Avail kit magnet kit comes with 8 magnets. I ran 6 and will probably continue to run 6 magnets. It is nice for pitching and stream casts with light lures. 8 magnets seem to be nice with long casts. The bearing that is listing in the Hedgehog site description appears ...

Re: Reel for MB Destroyer FMJ

8.1 is available for the SV TW and the A TW. The 2 you mentioned take a variety of spools to fit your fancy. The CT would be cutting it close with 16lb FC, unless pitching only.
