Re: Removing 1 hook from baits with 3 trebles

Have you tried sticky lead strips like the fly fishers use? Or you should be able to source stick on weights or suspend dots easily.

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

hmmm... well since the O.P. asked about casting and in 3 pages nobody actually mentioned distance I guess I will try to share my experience. I like testing and comparing things fairly.

Re: New kayaks!!

Is an inflatable jacket allowed where you are? No back on most, just a couple of straps.

Re: Looking for some walkie talkies

A lot of the newer PLBs have a message function where you can directly message friends, family, or the authorities. World wide coverage so no limit on signal.

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

Those of you looking for spool storage options; if you know someone with a machine shop, mechanic etc, a lot of the taps etc that they use, come in heavy duty screw style packaging. Similar to the proprietary spool cases the reel companies used to supply but heavy duty and probably for free.

X3.
If it is about the Zero bearing reel, haven't used one, but the ones for sale locally feel very low quality. Knock a heap of money from the price and they may get a few people willing to risk a purchase.

Re: Feeling Slanty

Pics seem to show slant goes to one side. Are they available for both sides, or only one? Thanks.

Re: balancing rods

The fishing rod is much like a golf club in that someone that spends a lot of time with it will be able to tel...
