Re: Gamma Fluoro and CoPoly

When I use Edge it's only on leaders. It's significantly thicker than Seaguar AbrazX at the same rated strength, but is far tougher. Seems that they rate it lower than it breaks at. Tough as nails, very abrasion resistant.

Re: Daiwa cracking down on wholesalers/private dealers?

Technically, all dealers who run through Daiwa directly should have to stick to Daiwa's MSRP pricing, or risk losing their dealership. I'm not sure if they've recently started cracking down on this, but I did notice what you did, so it seems to be a reasonable assumption.

Re: Need help ( Bottom contact rod)

Second the FMJ opinion. I'd also venture to say Orochi XX Enforcer for finesse jigs and shakey heads. I've thrown down to a Ned rig and up to a 3.8" Keitech Swing Impact Fat on mine, with minimal difficulty. I use 15lb J-Braid with an 8 or 10lb fluoro leader.

Very cool! 8-) A bit off topic, but does anyone have experience with the Megabass - V9 Spinnerbaits? https://japanlureshop.com/media/catalog/product/cache/1/small_image/210x/9df78eab33525d08d6e5fb8d27136e95/v/9/v9_03_ayu_2.jpg Thin wire, they run very nice, and I get a lot of bites on them.

Re: 2018 Stella

This site has some specs. Looks like they shaved some weight off of the 2014 model.

Re: Another hook setting question

For jigs and soft plastics, I set up but over the shoulder of the hand I'm reeling with. Just a more natural motion for me. So spinning rods I set over my left shoulder, and casting I set over my right, since I reel with my left and right hands respectively.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Has anyone gotten their hands on a 902S yet? I'll have mine on the water soon. It's finally getting cold enough for a 1/4 oz hair jig bite to start up, and I'm really curious how it's going to handle those duties, but it's going to be a fantastically versatile spinning rod in general. Mine will be ...

Re: Long casting JDM swimbait rod up to 3 oz

The Megabass Evoluzion White Python is another good option. The anniversary ones are for sale all over the place right now. It's only 7'6 but casts really well due to the taper and has the sensitivity part down. I use mine for 1 - 3 oz hard and soft swimbaits and think it's just right. No experienc...

Re: Trout baits?

I've caught my better sized browns on Vision OneTens (Yes, the full sized version). In muddy water I use the brighter, reaction colors, and in the clear water I use the more natural colors. Not many bites, but they're good ones! I guess their carnivorous nature takes 'em over. :lol:
