Re: Edge Rods

Great rods! In fact my personal favorite- I currently have 5 and another one on the way. They are always swamped and customer service is rather slow but cannot beat the product. When I ordered the latest rod they were 3-5 weeks out. It will be 5 weeks this weekend. I just called them today since I h...

Re: Good 1000 size spinning reel for 2-4lb test

:D I have the Ballistic, Tatula and numerous Stradics. Both the tat and stradics are super smooth and a pleasure to fish. The ballistic is not as smooth so cannot recommend it although I bought it after reading many good reviews. The tat just looks very cheap in all black and being made of zaion rea...

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

Bantam MGL arrived today- spooled it up with 30# power pro- started with 2 brakes on dial on max. Man this thing is finicky! Spool starts up quick and only gets faster. Kept on braking it until finally getting it right. Ended up with 4 brakes on dial to six and 2/5 oz spoon barely falling. Was able...

Hook Files

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

Anyone got a line on the 151 XG in stock for under $300? I will probably be returning mine :shock: the performance just isn't worth the price, there are to many other reels that are more refined at this price point. The Bantam spool capacity should be good for Steelhead fishing if you need it, I do...

Re: 7'-8' Casting rod?

The 762L Leadership arrived today- Excellent quality- no imperfections and rod feels great. Mounted a Tatula equipped with BFS spool and 6# Fireline Ultra 8. This rod launches 1/4 oz further then I need quite easily. Will see how it feels on 3-4# trout later in the week. Does it fit the bill? Is it...

Re: New Daiwa Exist LT FC 1000S

I am still liking the Exist a whole lot. It is till currently attached to my favorite UL rod the G. Loomis TSR801-2 GLX. Been putting the hurt on crappie and other panfish all summer throwing 1/16oz jigs with 2" plastic tails. The reel may have a new home though, either on the new St Croix Leg...
