105 SV vs 103 SV spool

Would putting a 103 SV spool into a Steez LTD SV 105XH 8.1 be defeating the purpose of the reel? I'm damn near spooling the reel with 22lb Defier Armillo and an Evergreen Justine 95. I really don't want to bring one reel for a Justine 95 or One's Bug and another outfit just for the 115 size baits. A...

Re: Hedgehog & Megabass purple

Yeah, there are two types of purple. A violet and a deeper purple. They look very similar on-line, big difference in person.

Tungsten in baits

I've had a few of the new JDM tungsten, more correctly tungsten paste baits. I am getting to be an UN-fan of these baits real quick. I'm not sure what I expected of these baits but easy pitting was not among the traits I did expect. One of the baits, an Evergreen Jack Hammer. The other bait, an OSP ...

Re: **Say it ain't so**

Fanboi culture runs deep. Grown men putting their hands over their ears "La! La! La! etc.,". And that's coming from supposedly grizzled bass commentators who should know better. They just don't want to admit they were scammed.

Re: Store brand rods and reels

May I ask why you think inexpensive or store brand tackle isn't the target of this site? I'm not an owner and I don't want to put you on the spot, just wondering. Many on here fall under the enthusiast label. It seems that most on here do not appreciate anything that isn't Daiwa or Shimano. That's ...

UPS causes Tacklewarehouse Issue

I've been a long time tacklewarehouse customer. UPS will be changing that. I make it a practice to ship any rod purchases via "Overnight", spelled FED-EX. The rod leaves San Luis Obispo 5pm Left Coast Time, gets to me by 10am Right Coast Time. Now, unbeknownst to me, UPS is the carrier of choice. No...

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

It had to have been the Forum. I was a member of at BFHP (now defunct) and I don't remember if it was CAL or GamblerHydra who recommended TT. I was using MB and EG rods a couple years before coming here via a write-up in Inside Line magazine. TT was a lot different that most of the other forums. I t...

Re: Terrible Chinese knock off reels

This is why the big players in the game should give some thought to quality tackle at knock off prices. We know better and might pick something like this just for giggles. Someone new to the sport, doesn't know any better and gets nothing but aggravation for their money. There are several tackle ma...
