Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Finally got my UL rod in, Rapala RFS Micrology. Will be using it with my XT1000 + Yumeya 32mm spool while I wait for my Aldebaran to come in, hopefully soon.

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Has anyone tried aftermarket spools on the 16 Aldebaran BFS yet? Any comments on the performance gained when throwing lighter lures?

Re: First things you would change/modify on a new reel?

This reel is fantastic right out of the box. I was backyard testing some crème micro crank baits yesterday for distance. They weigh in at 1.51g on my scale and I measured 54-58 feet on average with a full cast in a light variable wind. 6'4" light power Jackson stc and 6lb co-polymer. Brakes we...

Re: First things you would change/modify on a new reel?

Thank you so much for all the reply! Guess I wont need to change anything.

What are some bearing oil that you would recommend? Or is the stock oil good enough?

Re: First things you would change/modify on a new reel?

Bearings are pretty good in the Aldebaran BFS. I have 2 of them. The 16 is my favourite BFS reel I've used. Smooth, casts great (windy or not), handles wide range of baits, so on. Is very small as well, noticeably smaller than my Alphas Air. The clicking drag is sweet too. Did you swap anything out...

First things you would change/modify on a new reel?

Hi yall, I will be getting a 16 Aldebaran BFS middle of next month and was wondering what you guys would generally swap out or modify right after you get the reel. Reason why I am asking this is because I would prefer to have all the parts required of the modification here when the reel arrives. Wou...

Yea, I guess that was kinda weird. I did asked Rapala and it seems kinda light coming in at 97grams for the smallest rod (micrology)

Re: What line to match Yumeya MG 32mm.

on my yumeya bfs mg spool i have a small amount of 6 or 8 lb izorline xxx backing and then spooled up with 15lb power pro mostly because i prefer the smaller diameter of the braid and allows for more line capacity. i'm mostly throwing 1/8-1/4 oz size lures with that reel. and i love that spool, rea...

Has anyone tried Rapala's finesse rod lineup? Rapala RFS.

Hey all, I cant find much information on the rods( in terms up review and people discussing the rods on forums). I was wondering if anyone has picked up one of them, I would like to know your opinion on them and if you have other BFS / ultralight rods, I would love a comparison. http://www.fishonmag...

Re: Looking for a Ultra light casting rod.

My experience with Majorcraft rods is that their rated low limit is absurd at best. My 68L is rated at 1/32 - 1/4 and I find 1/8 to be the usable low limit. It's not even that good at 1/8 ounce hard baits to be honest. I prefer to use the Volkey 68L for 1/8 jig heads + plastic trailer for it's fast...

They dont seem to make one for casting but will definitely be on my blank choice when I am making a custom.

Re: Looking for a Ultra light casting rod.

It sonds like you're on a quest for the one but don't know where to start. BFS rod trout rod? I would recommend a starting point, such as an affordable trout rod that works well at casting 2-4 grams yet has enough power to be sort of a BFS/trout rod hybrid. Owing such a rod would allow you to see t...

Re: Looking for a Ultra light casting rod.

I was wondering, so how should I go about choosing a rod for 2-4g? Should I get a softer trout rod that usually isnt above 6' or a longer bass rod that might be too fast for a lighter weight?

Thank you!
