Re: Lews

I basically started with Lews and the likes.. Some people are satisfied and stay there, some people get the itch to chase better and fish with higher quality tackle and move to Daiwa/Megabass & Shimano.

The more time that ticks and the more days that go by, the more I find myself using braid.

Re: Break offs

I'm wondering if you are getting line kinks or pinching while spooling your reels..? I like to use filler spool holders like the one from plano and feed the line through all the guides of the rod when I'm spooling line on my reels... this seems to work for me at least

Re: It's Been a Minute

You have been holding out on us all along but I am glad you came to your senses! This stuff is all epic. The rareness, the condition, the thought that went into the pairings, the color coordination, etc! That Mr B. Fella...I tell ya he can build a rod or two like no ones business! I just may have o...

Re: It's Been a Minute

Nice gear. Really nice. I'm very curious as to how the ZPI and monoblock perform and if there was any mods done to make them compatible. I read on another thread that the PG isn't compatible with the CV-Z but the 001M was compatible (inductor length was the variable). Thanks, Andrew Hi Andrew. Ian ...

Re: What happen to the Z hype?

To the OP: I'll try and give my honest answer here as I was sincerely intrigued by this new reel with "never before utilized groundbreaking technology that casts to the moon and is perfectly silent which took many years to perfect." -- or something along those lines... For me, it was the p...

Re: Your 3 go to/favorite baits, and three you hate?

I just don't get the finess thing. I would rather fish all day for one big bite. It's not for everyone, but sometimes it's the deal. Lot's of tournaments get won on finesse rigs. The guy throwing a t-rig or frog goes home early and empty-handed and the guy throwing a drop shot cashes $100,000 check.

Re: Megabass fmj vs valdiva

I don't have the XXPP, but everything I've heard is that it is an absolutely fantastic frog rod. In general..If I needed a frog rod and a bottom contact stick and I was picking 1 Orochi XX and 1 USDM Destroyer...I would choose the USDM Destroyer for my bottom contact duties. Not to say that the Oroc...
