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...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

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.

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...

Have tried the Sufix Advance in both 8lb and 15lb. Lots of unexplained breakages on the cast especially.
