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...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

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 installe...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

After toying with a 1520HL today my initial impression is of THE smoothest factory reel I've possessed. Can't find anything I don't like, general conclusion I need another. Real soon. I've been waiting for a reel like this. Sometimes, 1016 is too little and 2020 is too much. As for it not being able...

Re: Finesse Spinning Reel Size Recommendation

I agree with Tokugawa in detail. Something to consider, and it's important, is size of stripper guide on your stick. While big spinner for line management is real it's only relevant within certain boundary. Within that boundary, light braid ain't it. It'll work just fine, not requisite, though if yo...

I suspect mods wouldn't mind given this IS a review/brag/strut site. I've been curious myself, though always believing same thing different name type thing. I can only speak for myself here, but I'd love to read it. And the baits. Don't forget the baits.
