Megabass Monoblock Grigio Stone - first impressions

The other day I saw the Megabass Monoblock Grigio Stone at a good price in Japan - approx. 75.000 JPY incl. shipping and customs/tax to Denmark. Asked a few questions on TT and ordered the reel - only 1 available at that price point so I could not wait for too long. Shipped on Saturday and DHL Expre...

Re: Monoblock - Why?

Thank you both. If I lived in USA, TackleTrap would get all my wifes savings. As it is, I spent some of my savings in Japan - Jun / JapanTackle has helped me out many times before with cheap and fast shipping to EU.

Re: Monoblock - Why?

Thank you. I noticed that the spool holds a lot of line compared to the low reel weight. Perhaps a good big trout / small atlantic salmon reel with 3/8 oz lures. I will have to try one out.

Monoblock - Why?

I am tempted by the very beautiful Megabass Monoblocks. I love my round reels - Conquests, Mørrums, Ryogas - and particularly enjoy popping different spools in my Ryogas. The Monoblocks are obviously gorgeous and they come with some improved components, eg spools, but is there actually any performan...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Dang it! Ain't that the way it always goes? I too had been waiting on one of these to come out and resisted buying a ZPI spool for nearly a month now. Well I bit the bullet and ordered a ZPI spool that is currently being shipped and now Rays comes out with one... LOL Oh well....guess I'll have to g...

Re: The Ryoga 1016H

This one has had a hard life, got it cheap initially as it was well and truly scratched up. had it painted and rebuilt the reels internals so like new. getting a bit knocked around now from lots of use. It has even been to the bottom of the bay in 8 metres of salt water, got ripped out of my hands ...

Release rigs

For some time, Danish angler, inventor, author, and Fishing mag editor Jens Bursell has worked and published on his various release rigs, which use smaller hooks and confer increased hook-up and landing ratios with less damage to fish. Some of his rigs are now being made by Westin and will hit the E...

Re: Ryoga 1016 to buy or not to buy

If I could only pick one and if I did not have all the spools that I do then I would probably pick the Conquest. It is a beautiful reel and I like the small non-handle side plate. If I could only pick one and if I did have all the spools that I do then I would probably pick the Ryoga. I have close t...

Re: Ryoga 1016 to buy or not to buy

Love mine. Both are great reels. Use both with aftermarket spools (avail, zpi nrc001). That being said, I did not really NEED the Daiwa... You will manage with your Conquest. I thought disuading fellow TT's from expensive purchases was against forum rules and could result in suspension of account [...

Re: Japan style trout spoons

I guess most of the trout I catch are 3.3 to 5 pounds and some (10-20%) are over 5 pounds. They still seem to miss (more) here in Denmark. At least the small streams I fish where they have little time to target the spoon. However, I have noticed that some local spoon guys, who fish bigger streams, t...

Re: Japan style trout spoons

Houndfish: Well, sadly, I do not have science to support my thoughts. From many years of fishing trout in gin-clear streams, I know that I land a larger proportion of fish that hit my spinners vs spoons (I should be able to get a “significant” P-value on that during a few weeks of fishing next summe...

Re: Japan style trout spoons

Houndfish, with regard to tungsten weighted compact lures you can have a look at Italian company Black Flagg and their Drop Spin. Make sure not to buy the first generation of that spinner where the tungsten was just a little too heavy relative to blade size, which meant that the thing was very hard ...
