Re: Aldebaran BFS line options

What line are you running on your BFS spools? So far I'm leaning towards fluorocarbon in 6lb, but I rather be using a 10lb braid. There's so little information using bfs spools with braid, so I'm not quite sure how it would preform or if Aldebaran's spool would get damaged. Thou I did find this on ...

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Intersting read, is the daiwa presso not in the conversation anymore? Great reel. But I was asking for the best UL reel, or one that would at least be an upgrade to the Alphas Air. Yea,Presso is one of the best UL reels,like all Pixy family...With shallow spool and proper line and rod I'll go 1/64 ...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Anyone with significant time with the 905C yet? How does it balance especially compare to the 895c nrx which was worst in the line up. Thanks It's not nearly as tip heavy as the NRX 895, but yes, it's still tip heavy to some degree. Gary I think I need a 744 need a ultimate jig rod 844 I'm guessing...

90 bucks is funny because the spool is worth 60 by itself

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

I got a couple of videos with a SICK trout BFS rod. 4'7" Extra Ultralight. Sweet action and handles light lures with ease.

i'm eyeing the Conquest 783C
for its specs, 10-17lb, Med Hvy, 1/4-3/4 oz lure weight,
would a Shimano Calcutta Conquest 100 or 200 reel fit better?

cheers


100 for sure.
