Re: Looking for a low cost ML casting rod

I've been SOL on imported 2pc rods with a broken tip before. At least with these rods you can buy a replacement tip section although you shouldn't have to with a new rod. Let us know what type of packaging the tip arrives in. I'm curious as to what they use.

Re: Looking for a low cost ML casting rod

I ordered a Kuying Teton through Ali-Baba. It arrived today, looks great unfortunately it broke before I could make a single cast. Mounted a reel and a 1/16 Oz roadrunner. On the back cast the rod broke about 8 inches forward of the ferrule joint. I opened a “dispute” with Ali-baba, we will see how...

Re: Diawa Pixy/PX68 Alternative

Daiwa Alphas Air and Alphas SV. Very similar platform to the Pixy but a nicer retrieve thanks to the aluminum frame and, on some, brass gears.

Re: Buying rods thru buyee/yahoo jp

Don't do it. They don't upgrade the shipping container so whatever container is used in Japan will be what comes to your door. The shipping costs can be outrageous too. I got my Orochi XX JPN through Buyee and it cost like $200 in shipping alone and there is no easy way to back out of a purchase and...

Re: Looking for a low cost ML casting rod

Kuying Topcaster ML for starters. The problem is that the Teton L is a trout rod and more or less an UL rod despite the L rating. A Light powerd BFS rod like a Volkey 68L would be a nice one step up on power but are not going to be had for $100 even used. You might be able to track down a new or use...

Re: Anybody else mess with the Fuego CT?

I was under the impression that these had an inferior gear set to the Tatulas that made the reel less smooth. I wouldn't even describe the Tatulas as butter smooth. Interesting.

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Does anyone think the short distance to the levelwind might affect the Bantam's casting? I doubt it for heavier lures, but haven't heard of anyone using lighter lures with this tank of a reel. I really hate to beat a dead horse, but I am still seeing the -1 bearing count all over the place. People'...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

Right on Brian, glad you got fixed up! So what's your thoughts on this reel(besides the pinion issue) after having it in hand and digging through it? I think it is a beautiful and functional reel. Simplistic in nature really. It uses the Steez SV TW style cam plate, which I found surprising given t...

Re: New Daiwa?

It's definitely got a Korean OEM vibe about it but it does not match any known DOYO platforms. Its the LFS platform. Gen4 Abus, LFS Lews....its just that obvious. Lol I was on their site and didn't see any platforms with matching screw locations and frame shape. The LFS is the Doyo Allterrain and i...
