Re: A classic rod and a new reel

Sweet looking rig for sure. If it were mine, I'd spool it up with some 6lb cxx and throw little crankbaits with it.

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

The glorious line finally lured me over and I wish I would have pulled the trigger sooner. I was worried about the tapers/power being 'JDM', but man...that high power X is some serious sheet apparently. You can't believe something that light is also stout. The fast models are very fast, and the mode...

Re: JDM bottom contact rod

Hadn't owned a jdm rod since owning a few of the steez rods when they came over here years ago. Wanted a couple of ultra light weight, perfectly balanced and sexy sticks to complement my american muscle. Ordered a couple of glorious sticks and was more than impressed by how they fished. As a matter ...

Re: NRX balance

803 may be on par with the 852. well, at least to have anyone utter a negative word about an 803 would be a shock to me. possible on the internet but a shock no matter what Didn’t like the 803c. It was a broom handle. Hey, you asked :lol: I've got the 'broom handle' spinning version. It is suprisin...

Re: NRX balance

The nrx has a roomy reel seat that allows all your fingers above the trigger while jigging. Held like that, they feel balanced and agile to me...894 on down. I do use aluminum framed reels on them.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I noticed on the new 701m/mh RD it says 'blank touch seat', and on the 7011h it says 'double trigger seat'.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

That orange Zillion is the Sol in Aistralia. Just different paint and handle versus the usdm zillion.

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Rods are 7'm xc, 6'10"m mighty stroke, 6'11" mh hyper approach, and 7-4" mh biwako. Ordered 2 from ebay (shimreels), then 2 from jdm tackle haven. Tackle haven is by far the cheapest place to buy jdm rods I found out...and it's not even close. Shipping was also only $75 for both rods from haven, shi...

Re: GLX reel seats

The trigger is thicker on the new proprietary seat. I have a pic that shows a comparison between the new seat and the old fuji. The old fuji seat allowed for all fingers in front of the trigger if you wanted to, but also comfortable with your pinky finger behind the trigger. The new seat has less ro...

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

What I need and what I own are two different things. I fished club tournaments and local trails for almost a decade with 4 casting and 2 spinning, usually taking only one spinner. Bought my first loomis midway through this period in 2001...an 844 imx. Changed my fishing life. I had always been a tac...
