Re: fluorocarbon line shootout

I'd like to see a new shoot-out on FC as well. I wonder if things have changed or that there are new players on the market since the last one though. I’d love to read it but a legit shootout becomes more difficult by the day. It might take a year to complete as is. And even if it could be done more...

I put the lure on the hanger, tighten up any slack, then grab the line mid-way of the guides and wrap it around the blank, letting one guide be the "anchor" that the line holds onto.
^^^ This the trick

Re: Are we destroying our Gear Sets by pulling out snag?

Safety first. Wrapping line around your hand is risky, especially in wind or current. If you know you can break it or bend a point then so be it but otherwise not a good idea. As for using the reel, if you must, just point the tip straight to snag and slowly torque into the pull. You'll know before ...

Re: Seditions and some others.

Certainly in running for The Greatest no question. I smile and let out sigh of relief knowing no matter how bad it gets it'll never get THIS bad for me. And I thank you for that. Oh, and don't forget, I got a direct contact for a trustworthy psychologist with your name on it. I got you brother.

Re: Interesting Take on Drop Shot Knot

Hope it works with fluoro. Don't see why it wouldn't. Simple dropper loop, OG and reliable. I've used them for years soaking cut bait, even toying around with plastics on protrusion leader and stuff. Never had a problem with this knot, same as others more wraps smaller diameter, less larger diamete...

Re: Lightest backing line

I’ve wondered about this. I tend to agree, but what about when wet? Maybe a coated version perhaps? Hmm… Other thing is tying braid direct, not something many have success with. I’d give it a few yards of grippy mono myself. Braid main, braid backing, whatever. I’ve used braid backing, gave it a sho...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

That's a unique situation you describe. I'd downsize to medium power XF action right around 7ft or so. Your sticks are too heavy to throw that weight. I'm admittedly unfamiliar with them, but XF tip is what you need for lighter wire single points and a medium power should allow reasonable compromise...

Re: Buying Multiple Bait Colors as Backups...???

Man, I’ve got a few baits I have five of. Specific color I’m talking. If it works it works. Partly in case I lose one, which if it works that well I indeed will, but mostly for rigging and weighting and such. I’d say 95% of my baits I do not run stock out the box. That written, I rarely buy more tha...

Re: Is the 2015 Daiwa Exist worth the money?

I don't own a 2015 model but do own an Exist and only thing I can state with confidence is if you enjoy the Steez you will enjoy the Exist. I'm not up to speed on specifics but it's my understanding the only true variable is that of Exist being saltwater safe where Steez technically is not. As far a...

Re: Forum Restrictions

Brother, no need to explain or apologize for what you do. It is what it is, and if it isn’t what another wants then so be it.
Speaking as support, for my part, if TT was filled with sales influence and promotion I’d be gone. That’s not why I’m here.

Re: Popularity of curly-tailed worms

You pretty much answered your own question. They don't swim them anymore. Tails are great, I agree, yet offer no benefit to some techniques. Since worming doesn't make sense to many, coupled with method and product options available, one might spend 12-18 months learning and still not have a full gr...

You sure you don't have the 1016? That line capacity sounds really off :-k Sir, please click link of pictures i provided above. I'm afraid I don't know the different between 1016 & 1520 I believe that is 1520 shown. I think. Looking at photos perhaps line measured within gauge and line installed ar...
