Re: Conquest BFS spool swap to standard 100 size?

Wont work. Outside of spool dimensions, the braking systems are totally different.

The Alphas AIR is pretty nice for the money. The ASC is nice too. Both are better than the Ray's DIY spools in my opinion. The Ray's has more line capacity. That and the price are the only pros of it.
I hope you are right since I have alphas air coming my way.

Re: Looking to add new rod...can't decide

I only used the Gen 1 Tour Versatile but, I felt it was pretty versatile. I thought using it with braid was a little too stiff for spinnerbaits personally. Great for frogs, small swimbaits and jigs. Buzzbaits did well but, thats as far as I would go for topwaters (besides frogs).

Re: Value & Source for 16 Aldebaran BFS-XG Spool?

Id say get the Avail 16ALD15R spool. Less expensive and performs better. KTF if you need more line capacity. Original spool is overpriced compared to the upgrades

Re: ICAST 2019

70 sized ct sv tw Zillion with brass gears and aluminium frame in ct Steez outlook would be great! That 30 mm deep spool is truly versatile with nowadays braided lines! The 30mm spool is the truth. I have no problem getting easy distance with the Steez CT. Isnt a long bomber like the 12 Antares but...

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 ...
