Re: Envy 2.0

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

They looked better. Now, all we get is the generic black, gray, silver. They all look like mass produced reels, not 'special' like the pixies etc were.

Re: Do I need to change reels or line?

You should try the J Braid instead of the Samurai. Its thin and slick, just like SB, but really cheap.

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Not counting Evoluzions, forgot to mention Sadly I can't try them...I'm debating if I want a medium light or medium power adrena. I'm leaning towards the medium as long as it can throw weightless plastics comfortably. As to the reel i'm tossed between Aldebaran 30mgl or steez sv. The medium will lo...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

I don't find the Adrena stiff at all. It's very reminiscent of Point Blank X2 Heavy power is all have experience with in the adrena line. But like a noodle in my hands compared to similarly rated megabass. Thinking back the g-ax may have been one kind of comparable, but stiffer nonetheless. Always ...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Now I need to figure out what reel to pair it with :) The nice thing about the 18 model is that Shimano ditched all the red highlights, so just about any reel will look good on it. It's a very stealth, under stated rod. lol the red accents a...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

have the gen 1 2pc medium in 6.10. Its great and sensitive, but feels more like a medium heavy than a medium. A bit too stiff for my taste. I think it's pretty spot on power wise, in contrast to most JDM rods. If I had to guess, I'd say it's somewhere between 375 and 400 grams of power. Its spot on...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

More knobs. I actually really like these and they come in a bunch of colors. I may have to pick up a set just to have in my back pocket. https://m.aliexpress.com/item/32890329801.html?trace=wwwdetail2mobilesitedetail&productId=32890329801&productSubject=DIY-Fishing-reel-handle-knob-Material...

the zillions will be noticeably smoother under load, but worse for everything else.

Re: It happened, the Trulinoya Daiwa

I will reserve judgement on the marketing reasons why they are doing this :-k . If they stop designing / creating any other reels, especially existing reels like Fuegos on up. I would move to Shimano since they care about quality and not the Kastking/Favorite/whatever china crap that is popular rig...
