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: magnetized tools

Buy a Demagnetizer. They're quite cheap actually.

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...

Re: Stretching flourocarbon line

I'd advise against pre stretching fluorocarbon. That stretch protects your interest, to eliminate would place immediate impact upon the knot. If you wish to lose fish and baits this is the way to do it.

Loon Knot Sense is what you want. Superglue is fallacy save for perhaps braid, be it Loctite brand or otherwise :-s

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...
