Re: Cold water/ cold front -fall / winter JERKBAIT

The third one up on the left really threw me for a loop when I looked at it in the picture. I was like "what the hell is that purple and super blue?" It does a bizzare job of picking up light and colors around it. Here is another pic from a different angle in a different light. rsz_what.jpg

Re: Cold water/ cold front -fall / winter JERKBAIT

What color is the lure in the right column third one down? It looks like it has a streak of gold going down the side. It's black on the bottom, going up to the side, where it transitions into kind of a bronze color over a honeycomb pattern. Then black on the top...with a shocker rsz_1bronze.jpg A S...

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

Zenaq says they are Made in Japan. I was aware they are made in Japan. They have a very tight distribution network and none of them will ship that brand in particular to the US. (or I could not find any). It makes me think they have a patent or trademark issue. Actually, I think it's just a distrib...

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

He does, but I think alot of people have that misconception. I know I was a bit let down when I recieved by 1st $400 MB rod-made in China, hopeing for redemtion I ordered a $500 MB rod, China, further redemption a $600 MB rod China. It's litterally a sticker shock, and I'm not talking about price. ...

rsz_img_1903.jpg Steez LTD on a Luxxe Oltre 67M w/ 8lb Tatsu using the smaller MB variants this past weekend. Bluebird sky and crystal clear 54 degree water called for stealth mode.

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

I was always under the impression that the jdm fenwicks were made in japan. When my KTF super techna showed up with the made in china sticker on it i was little disappointed. But, once you handle it and see the build quality you quickly forget, lol. Same with my X7's, always thought they were jdm a...

Re: What's next for Shimano???

A DC Metanium programed to throw BFS style lures. Add on SV style spool and a titanium nitride coated T-Wing style line guide. Might as well throw in some MAGSEAL bearings for the salt/dust guys. Aluminum housing and frame, micro moduled brass gears and a swept carbon 90mm handle. Clicking drag and ...

Re: New Dobyn's Series

Still one of the ugliest brands. They need to hire a graphic designer. I don’t know. I think their logo looks pretty good on the trunk lid :D I’ve always joked that their rod graphics looked like they were drawn up on a napkin on a poker night break. Roll the Xtasy’s logo side away from you and it’...

[quote\] Fenwick Japan has a much bigger lineup. Killer blanks compared to what we get[/quote] Been thinking about pulling the trigger on a Techno GP for some time now. I realize they are an older rod, origionally fetching $600, now can be had for a mid $200 price. One of the few JDM brands that has...

Re: Post purple

The tats have stock spools. These are still available at a shop or two for 28,500 yen. The problem is the 80mm handle. The slp zillions came with 90's, but not so with the tat cranker. The paint on these seems to be very good. Had a severe storm come through tulsa last year, and my combos all hit t...

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

John, could you put a photo up of that set up? I have the same reel, I'd love to see it. KTF on the left and the Avail ALD1224 on the right and a pic of the Avail magnetic brake. I’m still playing around with this setup and the next time I go out, I will probably remove a couple of magnets. https:/...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Will the Steez SV TW in the 8 gear be coming to the US market? I like that Japan keeps certain items to themselves (at least for a period of time). It brings a sense of exclusivity when you obtain one of these items. Granted there are several drawbacks..warranty being the biggest I suppose, not bei...
