Re: Backing for braid on spinning reels?

If using electrical tape, just use enough to cover the spool with 1 layer. I haven't tried using an arbor knot, but have just tied a uni knot and haven't had any issues. As long as the braid has something to grab onto, you'll be fine.

Re: fuego spin reels

Has anyone had their Tatula LT or Ballistic LT become Geary after short use ? I've taken it out for a few outings and have been using it exclusively when I need to use spinning gear, and have caught quite a number of bass on it up to 5 pounds. So far it's still performing great for me. I've read th...

Re: Shimano Curado DC

With the Curado DC, is there no internal dial setting to choose between Braid, Nylon, and Fluorocarbon lines anymore, and all just controlled externally via the brake settings?

Re: Rod for Bantam (MH)

If you're looking for rods in that price range, I'd also take a look at the Phenix Feather rods as well.

Re: Wacky Worm Rigging Question ?

There's no difference in hooking percentage on the fish when using O rings for me at least. With the hook exposed and being light wired, the fish will usually hook themselves and I just need to reel into them. I mainly use O rings so I don't lose the worm and can use it again.

Re: Roboworm Ned Worms

I only bought 1 pack of the robo nedworms and haven't even tried them out yet because the zman's are still in tact after many fish hahah I'm not sure if the robo nedworms have salt in them or not, but I think once the salt disappears after some time in the water, they should float, unless it's becau...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Has anyone tried casting lighter lure's on this yet like weightless senko's, 1/4 ounce plugs? I'm debating whether to pick up another Chronarch or Bantam. Probably depends on the rod/balance/etc. that you are looking for. I was going to buy a second Chronarch if the Bantam had 8 bearings total. I k...

What size hook are you all using? I'm currently using a 3/0 EWG, but I'm not sure if that's too small?

Re: LT versus Ci4+FB

How are these Tatula LT's working out for those that own them? Looking to get a new trout reel and after having many stradics I am done with them and thinking either the Lt or a ballistic in the 100 size. Any feedback? I picked up my Tatula LT about two months ago and have taken it out on the water...
