Re: Microspools for Calcutta 50xt

I can't seem to find these for under $500. Any tips on where to look? Yeah it’s been 5 years since I put research into it but I’m 99% sure this is the spool you’re looking for. 100% sure this is the spool needed to mimic the “shallow spool special”. Full disclosure I bought it from a member here bu...

Re: Microspools for Calcutta 50xt

Remind me, is this the spool that turns a standard conquest 50/51 into the "shallow spool special" model? I have one of those, i bought back in 2015 for a project which never materialized.

Thanks,
Andrew

Re: JDM bottom contact rod

Luxxe Efreet rods are very interesting on paper with arguably better specs but a lower price point than the Oltre that’s been around longer. Assuming the “arguably better specs” of the effreet is the inclusion of toray t1100 in the marketing of that rods series? I wrote a lengthy post a while back ...

Re: Jigs with Living Rubber

I posted this previously, but after two seasons all my jigs are rodstrainer: I ordered all of Dirty Jigs OD flipping, Skinny Bear Griz, and Dink's Flippin'-Pitchin jigs, looking for living rubber backed by a gammy hook. Where to start: Cheapest (of the three). Hand Tied (with wire). Rattles included...

Yes the arms rod you want is the "left" version, based on holding the rod with your left and reeling with your right.

Re: Luxxe Rods

I will post some more pics this evening, but I would like to point out some the primary differences in the rods to the best of my knowledge. 6'7 M Oltre: 75,000 YEN, 115grams 7'0 MH Efreet: 53,000 YEN, 110 grams I paid 125600 including shipping, so a bit of some savings.

Re: Luxxe Rods

Here is some more blank technology for you to chew on Drew. Olympic Co. JP looks to be a substantial manufacturer of blank material in a variety of fields, Including a pretty stellar fishing rod line-up. They give some detailed information on sensitivity, reverberation ect on thier website. They ha...

Re: It's Been a Minute

Nice gear. Really nice.

I'm very curious as to how the ZPI and monoblock perform and if there was any mods done to make them compatible. I read on another thread that the PG isn't compatible with the CV-Z but the 001M was compatible (inductor length was the variable).

Thanks,
Andrew

Re: Steez RC vs Poison Ultima

I would concur that the PG and PU rods I have fished (166M, 1610M, 172H, 174-SB XH), are generally lighter than what I would expect from a M, H, XH rod at their line ratings. I think the 166M was probably the most true to it's medium power. I would add that the rods bend really deep into the blank, ...
