Re: NFC pricing

So I had posted earlier about receiving a broken blank from NFC and wanted to follow up. I contacted Scarlett at NFC and have received a new blank. The replacement was done in a timely manner and I am very pleased with their response. On the other side while the tubes they ship in seem to be of soli...

shimano 500 series

We had talked in the past about Shimano seemingly turning their back on 500 series reels. The tackle store I work part-time at has recently received not only 500 Siennas but I believe Sedonas. I am not really sure about the other models, I was absolutely positive I would remember, but like so many t...

Re: NFC pricing

So this is a follow up to prior posts and earlier discussions. I ordered two blanks from NFC during their big sale. I have built on NFC blanks before and was very satisfied. In any case I received notification earlier this week that the blanks were shipped. They arrived today while I was not at home...

Re: Calcutta 401D

egore 1 sorry I wasn't clear. No I like the drag star outside the handle as designed, was just hoping to replace it with one more visually appealing.

Re: NFC pricing

So I come at this having never fished or built on a PB blank. For me likes and dislikes often are the result of there being no "standard" ratings from company to company. If you build on a brand "X' medium fast it is quite likely not the same as brand "Y"'s medium fast. I am...

Re: Calcutta 401D

No I am not concerned with them breaking just would like a better looking one. If I can not find one it is not a deal breaker and I will fish it with the stock one.

Calcutta 401D

I have the above reel on order. Will use for bigger swimbaits and A-rigs. Question, is there a replacement drag star available for this reel. Found drag stars for smaller sizes on Japan Tackle but does not show any for the 400 size, unless I missed it. Like the reel not the plastic drag star.

Re: Scrimless NFC

I still have not received mine. Just sent them an email today, although I would not expect to hear back until Tuesday at the earliest. I really don't mind waiting as was not going to build until winter, but would like more communication.

Re: Blank comparison

I have no experience with the delta or at this point the x-ray but have built on the SM,IM and HM was pleased with all of them.

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

So I have a Bantam but have not fished enough to have a firm opinion or to give an informed answer. I will say that if light lures are your desire there are many reels designed to throw light weights and surely they do a better job out of the box or with mods than a Bantam does. For me I will use th...

Re: Blank comparison

I plan on using it just like you stated, 1/4 to 3/4 T-rigs. Also any other bottom contact in that weight range. I also considered one of the 7'10" models as an A-rig rod. Not for the sensitivity but because I could make a very light rod that could handle A-rigs and swimbaits. That certainly int...
