Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Anyone care to share any input regarding issues using fluorocarbon on a reel with a high speed levelwind? I know I've read some chatter in the past regarding the issue but I can't imagine a negative impact regarding the lines durability. A complaint I saw was the friction of the line rubbing on its...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Anyone care to share any thoughts regarding possible cons of the XH model after some time using the reel? About to pull the trigger in a day or two and slap a PG spool in it for jigs. 99% sure I'll be going this route over a Steez A XH or SV TW XH. I’ve had mine for a good amount of time now. I’ve ...

Btw, I heard there will be 3-4 more rods released in the adrena lineup in the spring.
Figured this may be the case with how well the current models offered are selling. Great news!

Re: NRC001-M

I use braid on a M spool. Fits more than enough 30lb 832. Throw topwaters a lot with it. Lipless in the spring. Have used it for up to 1/2oz chatterbaits with no issues in a pinch. I should note I was not fishing heavy grass. I've used it to fish the chatterbaits around docks and light weeds at nigh...

Finally tried out the PG hyper approach today at a little lake. Had to take a picture of this beast.

Re: Poison adrena 2018?

Agreed, the new handle does get pretty slick. I had an instance in January jerkbait fishing where my hands were wet and a pike smoked my jerkbait on the pause and ran. Almost ripped the rod out of my hands even with loose drag. Now I make a mental note to dry my grip hand and/or the rod handle anyti...

NRX 853c vs GLX 853c

Can anyone share their thoughts on these two rods as far as power and tip? I have the newer model GLX 853 but I want to upgrade to the NRX 853. I really like the way the tip loads on the GLX 853 for 3/8oz t rigs and was hoping the NRX counterpart was similar in power and tip. Before anyone says NRX ...

Re: Any news or excitement about Jackall Poison USDM drop?

Are the 2019 models 2 piece construction I can’t find any info on that part They do make 2 piece center cut models but those won't be available in the US from what I've seen. It looks like all three casting models offered in the US will come apart at the handle. Usually, only the rods over 7' come ...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

My first and only Daiwa as I'm a Shimano fan boy. Not the best pic as I took the pic for a buddy to show him the M spool. I'm trying to like the dark side :lol:

Re: Post purple

Just putting this one together, waiting on a carbon handle to arrive. I wish ZPI made a spool for this reel.
