Re: Megabass Orochi XXX snapped

What was the cause of the rod breaking? I’m only asking because I’ve been eyeing the BT for sometime now. I’m sure a few of us was itching to grab that last one you copped from tackle trap. I’m a bit upset seeing you post that it broke. I use a Phenix k2 ml as a drop shot rod and was looking for a ...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Ok so I own a Steez A and a SV103, both have paint problems, can confirm this, and I do fish saltwater exclusively. Never had paint problems with Shimano and so far the Revo X doesn't either.

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

So from the tackletour review on the Revo X i decided to buy it, all I have to say is that its not bad for a 100 dollar reel, compared to my Steez A, hmm well its not bad its kinda nice.

Re: How long for my new xXx to come in?

I am still waiting for my replacement rod from Megabass, they said the rod is at their location but I guess they still have not sent it out to me yet. They told me they would send it to me wednesday or thursday, it is now saturday with no rod or no tracking number.

Baitcaster spinning backwards

Hi all my Steez A is spinning backwards sometimes, I don't know why I can't replicate it but sometimes as I am fishing it is able to reel the other way. Is my anti reverse bearing going bad? thanks.

Reel spinning backwards

So my reel sometimes reels backwards only if I retrieve my line fast, when I do that sometimes its able to spin the handle backwards. Does this mean the anti reverse bearing is going bad aka roller clutch for daiwa reels. Thanks.
