Re: Terrible Chinese knock off reels

Not Nihon or Nippon but Ippon...

Next there'll be a knock-off of that knock-off called the Ip Man.

Re: Megabass F5-72XRC-ACL

I mean using the standard version without the awesome cranes as a jerkbait stick. This limited version you have just has to exist to sell.

Pssh... To a certain extent they'll use whatever they have to in order to sell rods.

You do you, brother.

Re: Supertuning

I've wanted to hold off on baits and tackle long enough to buy a Dremel tool and do some polishing just like in that TT article about super tuning a Sol, but I haven't managed to do that yet. The guy polishes the end of the pinion and the clutch mechanism for smoother engagement, among other things....

Bummer. Hope that clears up quick! Sounds like you might have a long weekend of bobber fishing ahead of you.

Hopefully you still have this rod Jerry, I know it's been 6 years, but members would really love pics! :lol: :lol:
I’m in the ER and some pictures of this rod would help me not think about the pain.
Damn, what'd you do??

Re: What are your thoughts and experiences

not taking over. I appreciate the enlightenment.. Right on. I try to get good info out there without veering too subjective or pedantic, but it's a challenge when it's something I'm passionate about, especially when it relates to a recent discovery. Well put; and, could not agree more. As I more an...

Re: Varivas Super Suspender SSR-610T

Thanks for the comments. Rod is very nice in many ways and I am sure my disappointment will fade over time - I may come to love it. I am mainly frustrated by the Xfast action, which I did not expect, and can easily live with the front heavy part (as the overall rod is so light it is no nuissance wh...

Re: Varivas Super Suspender SSR-610T

I still think it sounds like a fun rod. It might surprise you. It may not be what you expected, but it may shine for techniques you haven't yet considered. Plus, the way a rod behaves in the front yard and the way it behaves on the water or with a fish on can be completely different.

Re: BFS and PowerPro

Are you tying on a leader? I use 8# j-braid on my alphas air, but without the benefit of a few feet of 6-8# fluoro leader I'd be afraid to use line that thin. First time you get over zealous and get a sudden braid backlash you're liable to see your bait go flying into Oblivion when the line snaps at...

Re: Varivas Super Suspender SSR-610T

Awesome. Have fun with that! That's a very intriguing rod. On another note, can anyone explain what a smolava/smolava/sumorava is? What about scrolls? There are others I can't recall at the moment, but what the hell baits are they talking about?? Scone rig is another. Also does Okappari mean bank fi...

Re: Talk me off the ledge please

I am a complete tackle snob I think you know your answer. Get another Aldebaran BFS. That is sound advice if I was going specifically the BFS route. I purposely don't want to spend the money on another Aldebarran. I do have an older MG7 Aldebarran I could spruce up if the XF50 turns out to be a lem...
