Re: Ultimate Lure Saver split rings?

I'd say most any cheap gonna bend out if you look at it too hard ring would do the same. Don't mean to come across brash, but last I checked one cannot bring in a fish if hooks pull off on retrieve. Maybe best to simply straightening hook instead? It's certainly cheaper. Hooks cost much more than ri...

Okay. I didn't see that as a listed option. Daiwa is good, too. Just trying to help. Good luck.

Given criteria, I'd suggest the Dobyns and drop extra coin on more baits or something. You'll be happy with it.

Re: Trout baits?

You're in for some fun. I'd throw a good old fashion Acme Kastmaster. They've been around for ages and do they ever catch fish. Trout love them (I've even caught Bass on them but don't tell anybody) you really can't go wrong. They're durable as a rock, cheap, easy to find, nothing not to like. Grab ...

Re: Soak with warm water?

Mono's absorb water, that's why some soak I guess. Or they could just cast and let that water do the same thing but whatever... :lol: I don't see how it would limit twist, per se, but it does tame it for lack of better term. You won't have the same result with pure fluoro. It does not absorb water. ...

Re: Daiwa Ryoga Shrapnel

I've been wondering the same actually. I'll pose a theory; there is nothing wrong with it, modification options are limited, and most don't throw baits worthy. Outside that, I've no idea. It's not for everyone, that much is clear. Thing is a beast...

Re: Concept Z bearings

I'm not even on the fence here, but I am peeking over it. Does anyone know how to interpret either of these charts?

Re: Fishing- Passion vs. Addiction

Addiction has encompassed all of us at one time or another over something somehow someway. Everybody. Be honest...

Passion is much more elusive. Often misinterpreted as desire or pleasure, passion has little to do with either. It is unspoken.

Re: Braid/Fluro Leader Question

I'd be comfortable with 30lb braid on caster or 20lb on spinner. Let bottom contour dictate leader. But, there is no scenario where I would ever think of throwing a Football Jig into rock. I struggle to figure a more certain snag actually. Unless you're talking like pea gravel or something I guess m...

Re: Is is possible to re-chrome an Antares? Other options? Paint, buffing, etc?

Get some chrome polish and find out. If that's not good enough most any decent plating shop can strip and chrome for you. But, it would probably be cheaper, certainly much easier, to buy a new cover and be done with it.
