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.

Another satisfied long time customer. I previously posted on here for help with my SECOND HAND Curado 70 brake dial. long story short this reel came to me as partial payment for someone loosing my gear. I ended up sending it in to Shimano knowing that I was completely responsible for repairs needed....

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

Check out this video by Brian Chan from Singapore - https://youtu.be/L6PI2rswfl0 His channel concentrates on BFS and UL tackle, and if you need to see someone competent with BFS/UL Tackle in a video, he has ...

Re: curado 70 brake dial

sounds good, thank you. 1st time sending in a reel myself how does this work. in past a friend of mine would drop/ pick up reels on weekly basis from you guys, I got used to just handing over my reels to him, I've been spoiled.
