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...

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...
