Re: Balancing a Great Rod

Depends how much weight you want to add.

Here was one I did to a megabass spin rod, with advice from Matt/Otterods.

Re: Stradic FL gear ratios

Good question, wondered the same.
A lot of the Daiwa gear ratios are non-whole numbers, so I never bothered to line up the gears when servicing my own reels.

Re: Garmin or Lowrance

Well the Hummingbird G3 still does it. Sometimes double the depth in less than say 4 ft water. In real shallow like 2 ft, it gets real confused but i think that may be any brand.

Re: Garmin or Lowrance

I had the Helix 5 DI G1, then tried a Garmin Striker 5CV (downscan), then tried a Hook2 5 tripleshot (with sidescan). Now I've gone sort of full circle, Helix 7 MSI G3. I really got used to the Helix 5. Very customisable in terms of scan/scroll speed, panel size, sensitivity. I used it in a thru-hul...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I feel BFS reels are better in hand/more balanced with a UL rod when the reel is light, so I'd say go the Alphas, although perhaps consider the Alphas Air or CT instead of the Silver Creek.

Re: Shimano 19 Antares

I thought the MGL/magnumlite spool is some sort of aluminium alloy/fine for salt.

I think Bantam1 mentioned it was the chrome plating that was problematic in salt.
