Re: 2019 Daiwa Admira Baitcaster

It's basically the new Aird by the looks of it.

Re: USDM Black Labels

These are essentially the JDM Black Label SG. Roughly 60 - 70 dollars more than the JDM models, but you don't have to pay for shipping. Sounds like the blanks have been made with US like powers and tapers. Sucks they're not offering any of the JDM models, especially any of the sub 7 ft models. I ag...

Re: Ned head shattered my Expride...

I'll usually try to give the rod a few pops to see if that will free it, which works a lot of the time, but if it doesn't come down pretty quickly I go to plan B. If I have to climb that tree, so be it. If that's not a possibility, I break it off by hand and go on. I see guys getting pretty crazy wi...

Re: Ned head shattered my Expride...

Yeah, man, no bait is worth a rod. That's a bummer. That's what scares me about tungsten flipping weights. Wouldn't expect it from a ned rig, though.

Re: ICAST 2019

You know I didn't even think about how the much more compact SV system would make it possible to place a non-fixed rotor on a deep spool like in that coastal.

Re: Scratched up my Bantam, what can I do?

I learned the hard way that covers are crucial, and while I'm not going to sell a reel over a few scratches, I started using covers on all of them, pristine or not. The only time I ever have the cover off more than one reel at once is if I'm fishing something that benefits from an immediate follow-u...

Does anyone have a good schematic for the sv 105? I'm adding bearings and can't find a clear schematic online as a PDF, only grainy JPEG files.

Re: Ester mono.

Just getting my feet wet with the JDM lines, reels and rods. Don't get to fish as much as some of you so I don't have much experience in ester lines in the 2lb range. My experience has been with 4lb stren on a cheap Shakespeare rod. I am soaking up as much information as I can from Randy as well as...

Re: 2019 Casting Lineup

It's all the Major Craft MS-X's except the 76BB, A Zillion 801MHRB-Glass deep cranking rod, and a Zillion 801HFB flipping stick. I just thought they looked cool on that Kastking rack and didn't know where else to post it. On all the Major Craft rods I used green rod gloves for the ones with braid an...
