Re: 2021 Shimano Reels

Does anyone have any details on the new Scorpion DC I have seen pics of? Should I just grab another of the current Curado DC or is the enough new coming that I should wait?

Oneten Special vs Expride 6’10M handle

Looking for some info on how the overall handle length compares on these two rods. I currently have the 6’10M Expride and I find the handle to be a hair long in the butt. I like the rod, but the handle is a bit frustrating. Is the Oneten Special handle
any shorter?
Thanks

Re: Shimano Stradic FL (Smootheness)?

That’s the “upgraded” carbon fiber drag. I’ve learned the hard way that any line you use 12lb and under, the drag is better with the regular felt washers. I believe the new FL’s are felt in the 1000 and 2500, carbon fiber in 3000 and up. Wonder if you can swap out to 2500 felt, previous models 2500...

Re: Shimano Stradic FL (Smootheness)?

I got 2 of the FL in the 3000XG the other day. I have not bought a stradic since the MGFA came out. I have been fishing Sustains for years and years now. 5he reels are very smooth. The drag, while it has not failed me at all in any way, has a slight bit of stutter or chop in it. It is not terrible, ...

Re: PROX PE-XX WX8

I ran it today. So far I am happy with it. It is very thin, and casted great on light spinning gear. Hooked quite a few fish in it with no issues.

PROX PE-XX WX8

Is anyone familiar with this line? I was looking to try G Soul and had this one offered instead. It seems very thin in the 16lb. Feels similar to smackdown off the top of my head.

Daiwa Tatula Elite AGS...Guide Question

So I am considering the 7’6” ML worth he AGS guides. I typically like to run a long fluorocarbon leader with a fine diameter braid mainline. I am a bit concerned about guide damage. I usually use the FG knot. Does anyone have any input on hide damage using a setup such as this? I know they recommend...

Re: Expride Backorders

Thanks for the reply. It seems even worse here in Canada. Was hoping to try the 7’2” MH for tubes but settled for the Zodias in the meantime.

Expride Backorders

Do I skip the dream of waiting for a 6’10” medium and move on to something else for my jerkbait fishing? The delays are killing me lol. Considering moving on to an Orochi. Is it worth waiting, or should I consider other options?
