Re: BFS Spool For Calcutta 50XT

I don't know if there are differences between the regular Calcutta and Conquest for spools, but if they're the same then this one should work.

Re: New Poison Adrena

As for the spinning models...WTH is Shimano thinking. Where's my 7 - 7'2 ML - M?? What's the 6'11MH spinner for? It's a power finesse rod. In short it's what they define as using straight #1-#2PE with most sticking to #1.5PE fishing the small rubber jigs, neko rigs, etc. in heavy cover like overhan...

Re: Short BFS rod

Not much cheaper than the Major Craft Finetail, but a 3'11" rod. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4000860391862.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000014.24.7e1547a21F3eGr&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreOtherSeller&scm=1007.14976.171374.0&scm_id=1007.14976.171374.0&scm-url=1007.14976.171374.0&pvid=50716777-1b53-4d36-a...

Re: Weird incident with reel, but funny.

I'm going to assume the white blocks are the small size, if so, then fishshop.shimano has them for $.99 Part BNT4821.

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

I've played around with them. My advice is to go thin on the trailer, like a 2.8 Fat swing impact is much too large unless you want to wake it. Probably want to keep the trailer size below a 1/4" thick to keep it thumping at a decent depth. Other than that, they're like a standard chatterbait, so yo...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

I have a yamaga blanks blue current 71 and I want to say I've used 10lb sufix 832 to 8lb mono leader, but if not then at least 6lb mono. I don't recall having an issue with the connection knot(FG, blood and alberto). I currently use 4lb power pro as a main and have connected that to 10lb big game an...

Reel Repair Question

I haven't taken apart and cleaned/ fixed reels before. So here's the issue. My spool will spin fast enough to cause a small backlash, with the clutch engaged, if you give it enough resistance i.e. working a jerkbait, walking a spook, even hopping a senko caused it recently. Spin the handle fast and ...

I remember reading Gary saying he doesn't sell enough of the 2 power rods to justify making it in the xtasy line up.
