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

Most people go through life playing sports with tools that aren't usually a great fit for them. They never really get to feel the highest level of performance. I'm not one of those people. 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...

Re: Daiwa Lexa 300 CC

Has anyone reviewed these yet? cant find any info and only a few retailers are supplying which makes me a bit scared... Is that the bait clicker model? Bought 2 and hated them. Line lay is literally the worst I have ever seen. Line guide travels back and forth twice as fast as any reel I have ever ...

Re: Shimano Core casting rods?

Have had the same combo quite a while. Lovely setup. See if i can find the original catalogue, but Im pretty sure they are just a blinged TCurve. Least that is what I was told at the time. Never sold well and were discounted almost from day one. Found 2009 Shimano Australia catalogue. Not much help ...

SOG Seal Pup

Not sure if this is the correct forum, but here goes. I am after some estimates on the price of a SOG Seal Pup knife. Brand new in box. It is from the original Japanese factory, before production was moved. Is this knife worth a premium over the newer versions? Blade is stamped Seki japan and it is ...
