Re: Bubble fishing for trout

7' fixed leader under a 1/8 oz indicator is not the easiest to cast with a 7' rod but until i find a better method.... I tried a slip bobber but when retrieving the fly it pulls it up out of the zone. What indicator are you using that weighs 1/8oz? Just wondering because I may want to try them out....

Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

Stream rods are shorter and stiffer for accuracy and fighting fish in current like that broken Rayz I had to return and your Ice Cube, I know that much. I think they're mostly designed for UL hardbaits. Area rods are longer and more limber for long casts and super light line like that ester you intr...

Re: Jerkbait rod

With all these 6'10" sticks I can't believe no one has mentioned the Oneten Special yet. I think that's too long, but you'd think it'd be the jerkbaitiest jerkbait rod out there.

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

I saw an OG Tat Type R 8.1 on the auction site for $109. FWIW that's what I've been using for 3 or 4 years without issue. Absolutely bombs frogs using 65# line. Plus, unlike the CT versions it has an aluminum frame AND sideplate. I expect it will last longer than I do.

Re: fantasista regista

I got a 6'8" one piece rod shipped from Singapore via FedEx in a triangular cardboard box. Made it just fine. I just ordered another rod from the same place and given its relative rarity, I hope they use a tube this time... [-o<

Re: Micro bass jig BFS rod

I've been eyeing those. Next time I drop $50 on TW they'll be in my cart for sure. Still love the keitechs, though. The only ones I had were lost to snags. The mono jig might even work for trout.

Re: UL bass in Africa

Sure looks fun, fishing in Africa, but I'm glad the most dangerous thing I have to deal with is the occasional snapping turtle.

Re: Casting vs. throwing your back out

That's why we want all these super light spools, sic guides, 12 different rod powers/tapers, thin/smooth lines, and all that. Nowadays, with all this modern tackle, I've noticed that most of the time bombing an all out hail Mary cast rarely results in much more distance than a smooth, effortless lau...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Some technologies start to level off. Sure there are breakthroughs that jump way above expectations, but some things stay leveled off. I think reels are approaching this point. You can only go so light and cast so far whilst still having enough strength and rigidity to stay smooth after years of fi...

And that Lexa is Aluminum! I would be excited if I hadn't recently sworn off spinning reels.

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

From other forums and groups that I am involved in is Magnetic braking works better for BFS with some suggesting linear magnetic braking such as abu use is better or fixed inductors on daiwa reels. As the mag Z/V and SV still rely on centrifugal force to push the inductor into the magnetic field , ...

Re: High quality oil, lube, etc

Two letters and a number are all you need to remember: WD-40 :evil22: Just effing with ya. Seriously, though. Don't ever do that. I also like the Daiwa blue Space Age Greaser. It's easy to see where you've applied it and doesn't make a mess. I use it for all the things Rippin Lips mentioned. I do wi...
