Re: What is your go-to Jackhammer/Cricket trailer?

I love a paddle tail of the appropriate size and color. I also really like the Kalin Scrub, it seems to really make the jig hunt. Brian.

Re: McCoy copoly

Keep 3000 yard spools of 12 and 15 on hand at all times. McCoy is to easy to pronounce so it doesn't make you seem as advanced. Brian.

Blank recommendation.

I'm looking for a casting blank similar to the loomis 854 in power. I will throw everything on these 3/8-1/2oz. spinnerbaits, jigs, bladed jigs, traps, squarebills, 130 ploppers, texas rigs, swimbaits, burner worms etc.. I had 3- 736mb X-Rays built and I'd like more rod power. Thanks, Brian.

Line Conditioner

I heard someone say they won't use Line Conditioner. His reasoning, he said from experience was, it makes the line supple and he loses all sensitivity. Thoughts? Brian.

Anyone try the Yumeya shallow spool in the Bantam?

I wonder if it comes with the bearing in the spool....
The Bantam has a bearing in the spool? Brian.

Re: Aftermarket handles

Hawgtech makes a decent, reasonably priced handle with different accent color options, even cork knobs. Brian.
