Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

And a few others: Those pics say a lot about those major craft rods. Light weight pretty well balanced and underrated. Nice stuff. That's what got me hooked on them. They're very well designed and constructed. The only one that's really tip heavy at all is the frog rod, but it's still pretty balanc...

Okay, you asked for it... Here they are without reels.

My spool came today so I'll give it a whirl next week.
Hope it's good stuff! Sounds super convenient.

Re: Fastest Round Reel?

Yeah, it is. All that gold needs some contrast. I wish I could've gotten a purple spool, but that red one was too good of a deal from another member in the classifieds.

Does your wife have more shoes than you have MS-X rods?
Lol, that's a hard yes. They don't cost over $200 a pair, though. At least I don't think they do... :-k

Re: Fastest Round Reel?

Sweet. That looks great! I got away from trying to mount a swept handle on mine and I'm glad. The straight ones look so much better. I've been intending to get some clear cork or sawdust knobs for mine. They really look great. I may get some metallic pink or green ones for my Alphas ASC and put the ...

Re: Fastest Round Reel?

That's the one! I would go ahead and grab some carbontex drag washers if you haven't already done so. AFAIK it doesn't matter which spool you use. The only thing I've run into as far as that goes is needing a shorter spool tension shaft from a Zillion to change spools. Got it; thanks again. I'll ta...

Re: Fastest Round Reel?

Hi all, I have always preferred 100-size round reels for the bulk of my bass fishing (Calcutta 100 and Daiwa Millionaire 103 sized). I've noticed that the manufacturers simply don't offer round reels in the same 8:1 or 9:1 retrieve rates, as are offered in the low-profile models. Seems they top out...
