Re: 70 size spool options

Due to Cals new rules, and they are fair, I wasnt sure how much we are allowed to share regarding non TT sponsors. Figured if they have been released, most decent outlets, like the site sponsors, should have no trouble sourcing such items.

Re: Drilling an Avail 16ALD15 Spool

So... I would like to attempt BFS nirvana. I am looking to drill holes (porting) in my 16ALD15 spool. I have a spare in case the drilled spool doesnt turn out. The spool will only used with small fish. I would really like to get as much info and tips as possible before attempting. I had a KTF porte...

Re: Abrasion Resistance

Some fluorocarbon line is designed for use as a leader material and therefore has a much tougher outer coating. This males it less suitable for use on a reel as a mainline. Dont tell your dentist I recommended this, but, get a spool of casting line and a leader line and try to bite thriugh them. You...

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

I just use a size4 trailer hook, usually in red. I have found anything else just bogs down the action.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Got a chance to check out the steez ct sv tw today at a fishing show in northern Illinois. Really small reel. Was told it would be expensive but no exact price. How small? Alphas small? Expensive is relative. Hell, I thought the non-TW SV series were spendy. Not a daiwa guy myself so I cant compare...

That looks pretty cool. I'll have to download that. I wonder if Kimi Raikonnen honed his rally skills in an automatic Mercedes Diesel... :-k The game is literal insanity, I have no idea what I am doing and then I realize four hours have passed.

Re: Japanese Hook Storage- wallet style

Something like the Megabass Field Wallet? Try Japan Angler, the accessory section, box and case. Not sure how to provide a link.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Down here in Oz, a lot of the big retailers bump up the prices just before a sale of some sort. Easier to give a 20% discount on a reel if you've just put the price up by 10%. A huge number of the buying public wouldn't know. Luckily for me, and I hope most TT readers, I know a couple of local shops...
