Didn't mean to post that yet, but yeah, it's a veritable rat's nest.

Re: Deciphering Daiwa Model numbers

Re: Favorite line for different techniques

That's what I use on my 2500 ballistic ex. 8# Invizx. Works great! The reel I have the 10# p-line on is a 3000 Lexa.

Re: Have top water rods changed?

I think the reality is that most rods are useful for a variety of purposes. We just like segregating them into their respective wheel houses as an excuse to buy more rods.

Re: Good allround spool for T3 MX?

I have the sv1000 shallow in mine with hedgehog ceramic bearings and it's a casting machine. I use it for bfs, (3/32 tw and up) but it will bomb baits, too. Ultra versatile. If you can afford it, I'd take their advice on the G1 spool since it's lighter and there's no chance you'll have problems with...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Guess you wouldn't agree with Cals review on possibly the highest rated reel I've ever seen on TT. :lol: http://tackletour.com/reviewaburevo4X.html Expensive items never score as well, because the "price" rating will bring down the average. Yeah I've noticed that in the reviews, also the ...

Re: Buying rods thru buyee/yahoo jp

That's crazy. How on Earth can Shimreels send rods from Singapore with free shipping and tracking, but buyee charges $200 and uses a cardboard box? I would never ever ever use them. JDM grass is not THAT much greener...

I disagree with this too, as I've felt vibrations through slack fluorocarbon.
That's possibly the number one reason for using it.

Re: More Parabolic Punch Rod

I'd like to know how the Zillion swimbait stick would fair, too. I know this isn't exactly a two birds/one stone crowd, but if it's one rod for two techniques you don't do a lot of it makes it more attractive to me. That said, to me the Tatula you were using is a very versatile stick. It has a prett...
