Re: Backing drag down all the way...Shimano

#1 is definitely normal.
#2 I imagine thats possible but I think you might just be tinkering with the reel in a way its not designed to be.

Re: Steez Ltd

One of the best looking reels ever made. I had one when they were in production and regretfully I sold it.

Re: Presso AGS 60L-B

Very nice. I had a alphas air but sold before ever using it. It is truly a tiny reel. I used to think the Alphas and Pixies were small until I used the 16 Aldebaran BFS XG. I recently got an Alphas Air and I thought it felt huge. Its got to be the best bang for your buck finesse reel. Super smooth ...

Re: The Search for One: The 13 Fishing Archangel

Completely agree about the cork/eva combo. One of the primary reason ALX never got any of my money.

Re: Better start with 2016 Shimano Ci4+ Stradic

Well I received the 2016 Ci4+ back from Shimano service on Friday and it is not much better than when I sent it in, you can tell it has been greased it is stiff cranking now but... it still has the knocking and that odd tightening up while reeling, I spooled it up and was planning to hit the water ...

Re: I'm sleeping on the couch after this one....

Re: Best spinning reel under $100

Whatever the most shimano you can get for the 100 bucks would be my vote. If you do your homework you should end up with a nice reel for your money

Re: New 2016 G.Loomis Rods

They are not lighter than NRX. They are slightly heavier due to the components on the rod. I will not say there are advantages. The differences are the actions of the rods. There are several lengths and actions for the new GLX that are not offered in the NRX models. Speaking of the NRX, are there a...

Re: Favorite finesse jigs

What you linked to is not what I would call a finesse jig. To me that's a normal jig in a normal size. I use 3/8 oz Buckeye Mini Mops with the skirt trimmed down fairly frequently. If you're looking for something different, like jigs from another bass fishing market in a a different country, take a...
