Re: G1 Duralumin Drive Gear

Maybe. Aluminum gears on some reels are geary out of the box and that is just the price to pay for light weight. On others the gears are incredibly smooth but lose this smoothness over time with use. At some point a flagship reel with aluminum gears becomes less smooth and refined feeling than the l...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Which reel do you guys think would pair best with a Megabass Destroyer FMJ? Steez A, SV, CT SV, or the new Morethan? Morethan! Morethan is the only correct answer. Thanks for the suggestions! Wondering why you guys prefer Morethan? Aesthetics aside, I was thinking SV TW would be the better performe...

Re: Reel Seat Question

I like it a lot. But to me, the best reel seat ever created is what's on the hyuga. I wish every brand could use it. It funny how this works. I'm not picky at all when it comes to reel seats but find that the Hyuga seat is far from ideal. With a reel fitted the there is a large gap between the seat...

Re: What's next for Shimano???

What's wirh the circle on the palming plate. I thought it was used to open the side plate but that is not the case in the video. Is it just a styling que borrowed from the Bantam MGL? It is nice that it has an external centrifugal dial. Maybe this will make its way into the regular SLX at some point.

Re: MB Orochi xx EMTF for jigs & t-rigs

Pass. The current one is a crankbait rod. The old one was great for bottom contact.

Re: ZPi Tatula SV spool

It stays out the whole cast. Even the older Magforce V spools do this too. The Pixy Airy Red spool makes a audible metallic "tink" around when the inductor seats. When I cast I watch the bait and right before it hits the water I can hear the inductor seat on my Pixy.. I don't hear it on an...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

10# Nanofil green with no leader. That's what I use and love it. I run a uni with 10 wraps to keep it from slipping.

Re: Finding a "Light" BFS rod???

No big deal, just makes me wonder about using braid w/ leader knots. I would hate to accidentally reel a knot through and break a guide or worse the rod tip. Almost seems 4lb-6lb fluoro might be a better idea, even though I still think I don't use enough leader length for it to matter with UL/L sty...

Re: Finding a "Light" BFS rod???

Solid cabon tips are pretty robust when fished. I had one break in a rod locker jiggling it free from other rods and line but no problems with solid tips when fishing.

Re: Do you use a dremel?

I will be using one soon to grind the insides on an Abu MGS side side plate to accept the dual brake assembly from a Elite IB 7. The dual brake would bolt right in but the bottom of the assembly has a bulge for the magnets to sit recessed when all the way away from the spool.
