I am guilty as charged. I feel that “cast control knob” is too ambiguous and can be used for the external brake dial. Then again, I am Danish :lol:

Re: SS Air or 16 Aldebaran BFS

I'm an engineer so I like to understand the theory, and since I have several thousands of hours with experience of fishing with baitcasters, where I've always tried to optimize the performance of the equipment, I'm able to connect theory and practice . So when I read about a new reel I can tell bas...

Re: SS Air or 16 Aldebaran BFS

Abbor, yes, the JapanTackle article is great and so is Ulf Tingstrom supposedly allthough I have yet to try his UT tuned reels (the 1501 and 2501 are hard to find in good shape and if 3 gram is the limit I am not going to bother :lol:). To me, having also read said articles etc., one thing is relati...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

Just added the Revo LTX-BF8 to the lineup, great real that is super smooth. Need to play with adjustments just a little more but overall a really good first trip out. I did swap the Orange Nut Retainer on just now and it is a perfect match to the Orange accents the reel seat has. https://i.imgur.co...

Re: SS Air or 16 Aldebaran BFS

Hmmm. Abbor, if the exact braking mechanism is of great import to you, then you should browse other threads here (if you havent already done so). Some report that the SS air has a moving inductor and others that it doesnt. http://www.tackletour.net/viewtopic.php?f=47&t=80351&hilit=Daiwa+brak...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

The Abu Alc bf7 seems to be a casting machine. Using the abovementioned “BFS” rod (1.5-18 gram lure rating) and a 2.6 gram spoon I challenged the 7 m/s or 15-16 mph wind head on. I had to set the brakes hard-ish, close to max, but still got 20 meter casts with no backlash. I will have to test the r...

My PX68 was the same - also a pinion issue.

Re: Native trout style rod for small bass and panfish?

I would like to be able to cast like the gentleman from Enjoy Fishing Channel. I have a Conquest BFS, which I love. For very lightweight lures, a light aftermarket spool helps (I use the KTF). I also have a Wise Stream, the 62LB-3, which I am also very happy with. Still, maybe Enjoy Fishing Channel ...

Re: SS Air or 16 Aldebaran BFS

^Not a fan of red either - except on lures. Abbor, what are you targeting with 1.5-2 gram spinners? Trout or perch? The Abu Alc bf7 will do 2 gram spinners just fine and better than the Alphas Air. For 2-3 gram lures (I do not go lower), I like the Alphas Air Stream Custom over the regular Air. Have...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

Re: SS Air or 16 Aldebaran BFS

I just ordered the Abu Revo LTX-BF8 to try out, very similar specs to the Aldebaran but a bit cheaper if you want another reel to toss in. Avail also makes a Microcast spool for it if you need another spool option. And I ended up getting the ALC BF7. Opted for the saltwater version, so I can use it...

Also straight braid in whatever thin round x4 and x8 I can get cheap in bulk. where? I live in Denmark/EU so usually Danish, German or UK shops.
