Re: YouTube EnjoyFishing !!!!

I found that channel while looking for reviews on the Conquest BFS, that guy is an insanely good caster. Some of the slow-mo shots of him casting a plug into a tiny little hole in cover make my brain hurt.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

That's good news. Will be visually similar to the xXx rods? The xXx is a sharp looking rod. Yea, I keep looking at the Black Themis, but I have never found any info about it. It is sharp as hell looking though and the idea of an L/XF rod is really interesting to me. I would love to see something li...

Yes, I am completely on Team Full Cork now, I really really hope they keep that.

Re: What's in your reel collection?

You guys make me feel a lot better about my own habit :lol: I am in the process of making the long overdue "master list" of all my gear, some for insurance bt mostly so I can keep track of my reels, I am modifying most of them and I cannot keep track of what bearings/misc parts are in what...

Oh lordy, that might break me. I really hope they get some more finesse stuff into the range.

Re: ultra light casting rod?

Would the Teton 662L be a good all-around choice for hard and soft baits? Will I be able to cast trout magnets with my pixy/diy spool? I have an UL Teton casting rod and while it will load and cast 1/16oz inline spinners pretty well, I cannot get it to load a trout slayer on a 1/64oz head. It is al...

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

I just put a RCS 1012 spool in my sv103 and the casting difference was insane. I went from running the brake around 3-4 for most everything to having to run it at 8-5 to keep the spool from feathering up. I had it out today and put it through it's paces with about one of every "style" of l...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I have a pair of XX rods and really like them. $300 is about the sweet spot for me, high enough that I will think long and hard about buying, but low enough that I can splurge on one without feeling too bad about buying yet another rod. I hope MB can keep a usdm line at around that price point, but ...

Re: SV103 aftermarket part sizes?

Bumped for another question.

I want to replace my brake dial screw, but I want to order a few replacement e-rings to have on hand. Can anyone tell me what size I am looking for?

Re: Daiwa 34mm deep spool with a shallow inductor?

1012SV is the s#it Yes, it is really impressive so far. I feel like I am going to start heading down the road of spool inductor tinkering, now that I see what a huge change swapping spools can cause it's going to be hard to stop. I have a pair of SV105s that I use on a CR721 and a CR723, I would lo...

Re: Phenix PHX-C682 = BFS rod

I have a Phenix Recon2 682 with the same 1/16-3/8 rating. A 1/16oz inline spinner will not really load the tip, but you can get it to cast with a good reel and 4lb mono. I use the rod for "plastics lighter then a senko" and cranks/jerks in the 1/4-3/8oz range. It is very versatile but I fi...

Re: Is 1/8th ounce considered bfs?

I consider anything below 1/4oz as BFS, but only because that seems to be a common weight for a 3-4" plastic + hook. I think the only bass plastic that I could find that weighed 1/8 was a 4" pin worm and a fine wire 1/0 hook.

I am more interested in this Home Depot rod build.....

Re: Shallow spool?

I use electrical tape as well and have found that the expensive stuff leaves little to no residue behind. I also use a little sliver of it to cover my backing/mainline knot on casting reels and it works great for that as well.

Re: Is the Zillion SV TWS noisy like Tatulas?

I have a 9.1:1 Zillion TWS SV and it is pretty loud. I had to send it in to TTT to get a defective pinion gear replaced and it did come back a little quieter, but it is still louder then any other Daiwa reel that I own. I really don't care for it at all, it feels so much more sloppy and loose as wel...

Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

I have the Hyuga 72H... I bought it specifically for Ganterel Jrs, G2 Shellcrackers, and 6" Line Thru Trout. It sucks for that. After 1 whole year of fishing it I did not like it for that. The Hyuga is too tip heavy and too short for my liking. I hated how casting distance is limited because i...
