Gears for Curado 100d

Are there any options out there that will fit? I don’t care if I have to change washers or any other parts. I just happen to be a fan of these reels and would like to try and keep them going

Re: North Fork Composites

I have been in the waiting months crowd numerous times. My last order has been over two months. I requested a refund and today received an email asking if they could replace my Delta’s with IM’s. Apparently there has been some personnel changes ( Scarlett doesn’t work there any longer as she was sup...

Re: Alabama Rig Rod

Well as an update I got a SWB807 from Northfork as well as a Batson REV710MH. They fit the bill exactly for what I was wanting. If you are looking for a blank for the rig, give em a shot you’ll be very happy.

Re: Anyone built on the MB 704 HM?

I have not built on the 704 but have built the 705&706. I spoke to Northfork and they called them the “triplets” saying there was practically no difference between them.. I can’t honestly tell any difference between the 705 and 706 so maybe for once I might actually agree with something that they sa...

Alabama Rig Rod

Good morning, I am looking to build a new A-Rig rod. I currently have one built on a Northfork Composites Sw765 and Bb805. Are there others out there that you feel will work better than either of these?

Thanks
Tom

Re: New flip blank from point blank

That is extremely close to my setup. The eternity is listed as fast in reality it is much closer to a mod fast. I have never lost a fish on that setup, I use tatsu for line with this one. I use the dirty jigs as well. I really like them , the others I use are the hack attacks.

Re: New flip blank from point blank

I am pretty fond of the HM but especially the new X-ray from Northfork but I think they lag behind the K2’s.

Re: New flip blank from point blank

Todd they do load smoothly but this year alone before I gave it away, my mh731 has lost over 35lbs worth of fish costing me 2 wins. What I found was for me the blank recovered much quicker than what I was wanting. I will say it does have a brunch of power. While swimming a jig this spring I was able...

Re: New flip blank from point blank

I have beat the snot out of it. Especially when I am fishing deep cedar trees w brush hogs and jigs. It does have “flex” to it. That is the mod action. I have pulled 6’s out of cedars in15’ of water with no issue what so ever. I have a few guys using the 765 as 10” worm rods and they love them. The ...

Re: New flip blank from point blank

I absolutely love it. It’s the only flip rod that rides every tourney. I can say I have finally found a replacement for my shikari 764’s
