Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Anyone else have a slight 'tick' with these spools? Its very slight, but annoys me to the point that Im gong another direction for bfs. :doh: Yes, I do. I mainly use the DIY as backup spools when I fish from shore. That's it! :lol: I'm 100% agreed that's a best place for using this staff! :mrgreen:

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

I can't wait to see the video! I'm going to be exploring my casting abilities this spring too. With a rod that light, you might as well be using an al dente piece of spaghetti! Is it a solid blank or hollow? Yea! Spagetti is no problem too :lol: It's solid tip,pretty long,-16",and soft enough

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Yea,and some flyes (streamers,f ex)is match heavier,-1/16,1/8... And jighead of 1/32-1/64 with small plastic is very effective for the small non-predarors fish(crucian carp,or gold fish, for example) .It's really hard to catch them,they're smart and so gentle baiting. In Japan and England crucian fi...

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Sure,it's some requirements to have a bit spase,not so windy,not a 100 feet cast :lol: ...but! It's possible.
I'm not a lier or troll,in my age mostly people think before talk. ;)
During this season,I'll make a video for you,guys.(if i'm still alive :) )

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

No way you can throw a 1/64 ounce lure on a baitcaster lol Nice trolling though you earned my respect. Ok,let's bet. I can record and put it on Tub... How match you put on your "No way you can throw a 1/64" :lol: Or just bla-bla??? 8-) Even I can go to my stream and catch a fish on this s...

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Intersting read, is the daiwa presso not in the conversation anymore? Great reel. But I was asking for the best UL reel, or one that would at least be an upgrade to the Alphas Air. Yea,Presso is one of the best UL reels,like all Pixy family...With shallow spool and proper line and rod I'll go 1/64 ...

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

Have a both reels too... and for MBR783c both is not really feet,-it's a powerfull rod! Works great with 3/8-1oz...so,need some another staff(Old Zillion,Antares,Abu 4000-5000)
Steez sv tw good 1/4-5/8,and Ald50 1/8-3/8. IMO ;)
Ps. What the lures you're using with 783 ?
