Re: Shimano Expride A Casting Rod 7'2" Med Lt+ Reviews

Funny. I was looking at this rod on ebay a week or two ago for throwing 1/8oz texas rigs for smallmouth. It is now sold :lol: Thinking about using it for 1/4oz drop shot as well. Both techniques using with an Aldebaran 50hg. How would describe the taper? Fast. Nice even bend under load. You might g...

Re: Tatula LT vs. Fuego LT spinning

Have you ever seen a Stradic or 1000 sized Shimano in direct comparison to your Tatula LT 1000??? Soon as either my wife's Revo Premier 30 or my STX20 goes out (assuming Abu won't replace, they are great for warranty work) I want to try one. I've owned both the FK and CI4+ 1k size. The Tatula fishe...

Re: Tatula LT vs. Fuego LT spinning

The Tatula LT is lighter with the Zaion frame but the Fuego 2500 is still light for a spinning reel and is mag sealed and I like that feature. Some very disgruntled Fuego LT owners on another forum, apparently the stem/frame flex deep on small inshore fish. Average bass? Maybe not...5lb smallie in ...

I thought the Caldia is more a 500 sized reel, but the new 1k daiwas are nice too. Thanks for sharing!

UL Deep Jerkbaits

Besides the LC Bevy Shad 40DD...and possibly the Staysee 60 (though that's pushing it size wise)...

what other deep suspending UL jerkbaits are out there? 6+ ft, 1-2".

Hi Bantam,

How so for saltwater?

Btw, how far back did the K receive the running upgrade to thumb bar, and that extra O ring?

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

There's a few "leak" videos out, along with the official Shimano USA video. Apparently not the only DC reel out this year:

Re: Daiwa Tatula Lt

Quick update on my ballistic LTs: The 4k is butter out of the box, and remains buttery after a dozen surf trips. The 2500 was not as smooth out of the box, and remained "dry" "raspy" on the retrieve after a dozen freshwater yak trips...nothing terribly significant, but compared t...
