Re: Rod for 1/16 jigs and soft plastics.

Won't lie, the initial impression of the hyuga seems like it will be the perfect action for those small keitech jigs I plan to throw. I have never used a Kistler, but I'd like to hear your report if you end up with one.

Re: Help with Bait finesse or BFS setups

I've not used the lew's you're referring too, but looking at the line capacity I would say get a different reel unless you have a really educated thumb. 1/8 ounce and up http://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Daiwa_SV105_Casting_Reels/descpage-D5SV.html Under 1/8th https://japanlureshop.com/reel/daiwa/daiwa...

You're welcome, I'd love to know what you end up with! Can't go wrong with a super trickster ;)

Re: Rod for 1/16 jigs and soft plastics.

Food for thought, you can order Major Craft speedstyle off the American website, think shipping was around 30 bucks for the cheapest option. Was recently looking for a similar rod, but ended up with a Megabass Hyuga 64L from the tackle trap. Received it today, so no reports on it yet.

Re: Jackson Trickster Spinning Rod

Legit Design looks very similar to the Super Trickster, or perhaps a Major Craft speedstyle for a bit more of a stealth look.

Re: Daiwa aftermarket Spools

Will the upcoming ZPI spools fit an SV103, or just the steez/zillion tws reels? Sorry if it's a dumb question, very new to these platforms, but they are some nice looking spools :big grin: http://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=898_2347_2496&products_id=11256&zenid=...

Re: Spinning Reels

Shimano Stradic is a good option; if you prefer something a bit lighter and cheaper, a pflueger supreme xt. 119 bucks for a magnesium framed spinning reel with carbon fiber handle on Amazon, pretty good deal. My only gripe with the pflueger is that the bail is hard to close by hand in one certain sp...

Re: Spinning REEL - Kastking vs Shimano

Pflueger Trion is a nice, cheap spinning reel. Over 15 years of abuse on mine, and still performs flawlessly. Or check out http://www.ffo-tackle.com for some refurbished gear.

Beautiful fish, and that's one chubby bluegill!! Always a blast catching a few of those on some ultralight tackle.

Re: Your go to lure

Honestly, I've had a ton of luck on small paddle tails. Seems like downsizing, and using the "old school" baits are working better on my hometown lake than anything. Tubes, grubs, you name it; think the fish are getting tired of seeing shakey heads and jigs :lol:

Re: Favorite UL line

4# seaguar invisx or sunline sniper is what I use for my ultralight spinning rigs. Berkley 100% seems to work just fine, as well. Main problem is trying to tie on lures with such small diameter line :lol:
