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...

Shimano got it right with that two-tone paint. Sexier than the current model.

The SV light didn’t stay long had to replace it. The Edge 704 rod lends itself to much more than semi-finesse
I have a slew of edge rods, and the 704 is a standout. When I head out on foot patrol around town and am only taking one rod; that's usually the one.

I never understood this thread, and as to why people would publicly burn their sources :-k :-k :-k
I only buy new rods, so it doesn't affect me.

Not an auction, but a good price on a white python.

Re: IMX Pro 884 TWFR vs Expride 76H

I dont have the 845. Had the original bronze colored cbr in the 845 years ago. It was just ok. Those old rods are nothing like these new imx jobs though. Getting ready to pick up sn 841 for peanuts and the like

Re: IMX Pro 884 TWFR vs Expride 76H

Someone on here has that imx frogger...I've seen one in the show and tell. I have considered the 884; I really like my imx crankers and the 884 appears to have a long handle and I'm sure would be great. 20% off at TW is just a few weeks away.

Re: TD-Z Owners Guild

That old lime green zpi spool is the sheet. I'm surprised no one has tried to powder coat or anodized a spool around here. When those painted zpi spools came out, I remember someone asking how much weight the paint would add. Only on here, lol.

Jackal Revoltage rods

Have you guys run across these? Looks like they line up above the BPM series and below the adrena. Jackal sure seems to have a great design team...these are sharp. That lock nut looks familiar. https://fishing.asian-portal.shop/category/select/pid/299774 A link to more models... https://fishing.asia...
