Re: A Quality FC Line from Hi-Seas : 100% Fluorocarbon

Their Quattro camo fluoro is even better. One of the lines I push hardest to others. It is a bit thick compared to others, but the 10lb works great in the place of 12lb other brands (like InvizX or Sniper). I have also used the 12lb in situations where I would normally use 15lb for jigs, chatters, m...

Re: Fuego CT for finesse?

I haven't used that exact reel with a Ray's DIY, but for my old 1520 Zillion TWS those spools turned it to a casting machine. I had a friend who ran a Tatula CT with one of the DIY spools but I don't know which one. He used it with 8lb fluoro (didn't hold much) and it would easily out cast other sto...

Re: **Wow Askren didn't even get a 3 piece and a soda!**

Nice to know another person watches MMA. I was kinda bummed about this, but at the same time... Really didn't want to see his style take him to the top. What was the deal with Masvidal not liking him so much???

Re: ICAST 2019

How can I get into i-cast? I'm not in the fishing trade, per say, though I did sleep in a Holiday Inn Express... sorry couldn't resist. But seriously, I'd like to go. I do have a certification and side business as an archery instructor. Do you did I could get in claiming my interest is in bow-fishi...

Re: ICAST 2019

I'd like to see the Steez A and Steez SV TW modified to where the mag dial is at the bottom of the palm plate, making it a more streamlined platform while still retaining the 34mm spool. If they needed to downsize the TWS to prevent the bulbus profile, I would be good with that too. And Jeez..$500-...

Re: ICAST 2019

Maybe, maybe... concerning the Zillions that is. I just don't know what will happen though, because they upped the Steez A to $500 and now they have a super premium priced Steez CT SV. I feel like that frame size will be the next front running tech Daiwa pushes. I just don't know if they'd offer bra...

Re: ICAST 2019

I know Daiwa has multiple new models to debut. I'm excited to see them and try them out. Yes indeed. I've fished quite a few of the new introductions, good stuff coming for sure from our Daiwa friends =D> Spinning? Casting? Or both? Just like another post said, I don't have a clue what is coming, t...

Re: Tatula CT gear, interchangeable with larger/OG tatula and similar bodies

I actually tried changing out a Tatula SV XS and a Zillion SV HS because I wanted a faster Zillion before actually buying the 9.1:1 gear set, and the pinion gear for a Zillion SV is different than a Tatula SV. The top of the pinion on a Zillion SV is designed to go up into what is the spool bearing...

I had seen one for a long time but never pulled the trigger I said why not tonight Butt the butt cheeks slapping together like at a twerking contest is a reaction innovations sales line if they came out with a similar lure as the DoLive.

Re: Thumb bar not resetting when cranking handle

Also depends which 3 reels you are talking about. If they are all older with decent wear (or an angler rough on gear), it isn't THAT uncommon of a problem. I have only had 1 reel ever do that, my gen 3 Revo Winch. My Winch did it almost every cast, I broke it down, cleaned it good, and sold it. The ...

Re: What have you gotten back fishing?

Good stories so far, I know there are a ton out there. Once fishing at Lake Dardanelle with friend he decided to go under a barrier to retrieve an A-rig. He left me on the front of the boat and said just grab it fast once we get up there. There were actually 2 barriers/buoys, one we had to go under,...

Re: ICAST 2019

I don't hate the TWS system on Daiwa reels, I have never have an issue with it going bad, aside from scratching a generation one Tatula Type R's and that was MY mistake. I think it is plenty solid on the Steez level reels and works fine, even though there isn't a major performance gain. This all sai...

What have you gotten back fishing?

There was an interesting thread about beloved items lost while fishing, so I figured I would ask about what things people have retrieved. I swam on a hot summer day once to get a good crank, local clear clean lake though, the crank was stuck just about 6ft down. I also used to push really hard to ge...
