Re: Finding a "Light" BFS rod???

Well I am still sitting back waiting to use the Proflex... Made sure to order the rod from a dealer with high sales, but made a mistake and ordered the spool from LT Fishing or something. Normally BFS DIY spools come from West Door Tackle (on Aliexpress) who is very fast. When I check the tracking o...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

I really would like to see a breakdown of the new 2019 Morethan, just to differentiate from the Steez A. The gear composition is the main thing, the weight tells a different story though and makes me think they are both an aluminum style gear...

Re: Show off your stuff

For as much as I enjoy fishing, I have no idea how to ice fish. No idea how to run that style of depth finder, don't really know how to run a regular one. Good looking setups, after all these BFS questions I forgot to ask anyone, how are Major Craft's regular powered rods? I really like a good +7'Me...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

It is the CT sized reel, a Tatula SV with different cosmetics. After looking to see if those handles were available, I found that there is a Prorex LT spinning reel too with purple trim.

Thanks, have also considered the Sufix Nanobraid which I think is similar but not quite as "flat" as Nanofil in shape.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

http://www.daiwa.com/scandinavia/contents/reels/pro_tw100sv/index.html Reel's been out since Feb of 2018..never heard of it. The SV spool in it is the same tatula SV style /w the shaft. Not free floating. Gotta get me one of the purple handles though. Same, wonder if it would match the trim of Daiw...

Re: Finding a "Light" BFS rod???

No big deal, just makes me wonder about using braid w/ leader knots. I would hate to accidentally reel a knot through and break a guide or worse the rod tip. Almost seems 4lb-6lb fluoro might be a better idea, even though I still think I don't use enough leader length for it to matter with UL/L sty...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

Which model did you get? I only use #4 Fuji micro guides on my rods with Braid and very long leaders (3x rod length) and the FG knot makes all the difference in the world to me The model I got is the 6'3"UL 2-piece full cork handle. Not sure what size the guides are, but pretty small toward th...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

I use this rod for 6lb fireline ultra and 10lb mono leader with no problem, just use the FG leader knot. Will cast a 1/8 jig + plastic grub 30m + using a Steez A with a 1012SV G1 or Megabass IS Finesse spool. This rod will handle good sized fish , biggest so far is a 90cm Australian flathead. The b...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Well seeing now that Shimano has a Scorpion MGL, I figure we will see something new from Daiwa in that range? I hate to say it, but I don't see much better than my Zillion SV TW's or Chronarch MGL. Going to be hard to buy something new unless one of them steps it up big. Would love to see a Zillion ...

Scorpion logo looks better than the Tatula spider tribal-bro arm Tattoo thing.

Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

Already got the rod in, a few days ago at that. Shipping was great, quality looks great so far, guides are perfect, reel seat feel superb. Everything looks good. One thing that surprised me though was the rods tip, or last 12 inch or so section. I described it as #2 pencil thin on another post, but ...
