Some where sold a set for the Curado 70 to be converted to a 5 gear, few had done it for a good compact cranking reel. https://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=898_792_793&products_id=11370&zenid=bbf8ac605bca5e8da8c847387b95be7b Teeth look small, but I don't think t...

Funny. I was looking at this rod on ebay a week or two ago for throwing 1/8oz texas rigs for smallmouth. It is now sold :lol: Thinking about using it for 1/4oz drop shot as well. Both techniques using with an Aldebaran 50hg. I got the 7'2ML+ a couple of months ago.... How would describe the taper?

I use an IMX 844 MBR (the model before the IMX Pro) for hollowbody frogs and horny toads among a few other moving bait techniques around grass that require braid. It performs fine for all that I mentioned, however I believe my IMX is rated up to 1oz. So I got rid of my IMX 844 and replaced it with ...
Picked up a new mgl 30 from japan. I was worried about line capacity being down. To my surprise I took the line directly off of one of my fully spooled 50's and it held all but about 5 yards of it??? That's pretty interesting. I love my 50 but was concerned with the 30's line capacity. I may pick o...

I have the new GLX's in 853 and 844. Try to handle them if haven't already. I'd agree with arrowslinger that they do feel a little lighter than their ratings, at least the 853 does to me. Though sometimes I don't realize how much I can lean into it, I think it has to do with the fact that they are s...

Yep I stumbled upon them too on IG awhile back and thought they were pretty cool. I don't think they are available for purchase, at least not yet here in the US. I think they would sell pretty darn well here and I was thinking the dude better hurry up and start mass production before someone else co...

To me it sounds a bit like the spool is touching the frame slightly when moving. Cheers. Mine was and still is super quiet. If you feel like it sounds like the spool is touching the frame. Take the spool out and see if there is excess paint on the frame where the spool rides. Saw it once on one of ...
I had the same issue and looking through old posts on this subject I know I posted in, I see OP either posted in them or started them. Only time it would happen for me was when the drag was set lightly and when using a jerkbait. The culprit in my mind is the fact that there are no beveled washers on...
I had always wondered if the 2016 Aldebaran BFS XG gears would fit into the 2015 Aldebarans. They are the same frame and I think they both have a bearing on the spool shaft so I would think that part of the frame would be the same.
Well this is unfortunate. I don't own a demo rod but I did have my eye on an nrx demo to purchase in the near future. How do you know a rod is a demo ? Are they marked in some way? I’ve bought demo rods and reels and haven’t noticed anything. This. I hadn't heard of anything that differentiated them...
I use an 843 and 844. I only lose fish when I see them hit near the end of the retrieve and rip it out of their mouth . Otherwise I just lean into it when using braid or a light pop hook set with fluoro.
So, At the levelwind...do.you think that I could add 1 bearing or 2? Is there anu place? Tks Just look at the schematic... there is no bearing on the levelwind nor is there a bushing to replace. So no, you cannot add a bearing or two to the levelwind. http://www.plat.co.jp/parts/SHIMANO-BAIT/METANI...
