Re: Japan lure shop

both digi and jls are great online stores. jls does send you gift with purchase, awesome... both are fast and great to deal with.
i tend to go to digitaka if im only purchasing a reel by itself because of the free shipping on reels.
i have had good experiences with japan tackle and jp angler as well.

I second this reel, cant beat it. the 200d series is also a good option if you prefer a bigger size reel.

Re: Small Swimbait Rod Choice

if you're open to the idea of a custom built rod take a look at building one on a Phenix X-13 blank. I use mine for the exact same size of baits you're looking to throw. good luck on your decision making, lets us know what you ended up with

Re: $100 china UL BFS combo

curado 70 brake dial

hello TT, I got a brake dial that is getting stuck and wont allow the dial to move back and forth. secondly I noticed that when at the lowest setting it lands between #3 and #4 of the dial, where it gets stuck. any ideas/ fixes would be greatly appreciated.
