Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Those works similarly. Centrifugal force (against spring force) pushes inductor ring to magnetic field. Weights in V are in bigger angle than in Z, and therefore V might be better in light use.

Id like to see the Steez A get brass gears. Dont care what they end up calling it. Have a 90mm handle on it too.

The Steez CT with aluminum frame and brass gears to cut costs down.
Yep! And in case of it's absolutely necessary, they can add Magforce 3D if they really want.

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

2 BFS rods, 2 light jigging rods (mainly for Perch), 5 seatrout rods (usually I have 2 of them with me when fishing seatrout and 2 of them is for spinning, those has been in very little use), 1 rod for common use, 2 rods are for pike. So 2+2+3+1+2=7 rods are which I use. Reels which I use are ct Alp...

Re: Light braid

Spiderwire Stealth Smooth 8 in 15# test. Its inexpensive, strong and smooth. Quiet thru the guides, too. In light use I have used recent years only Spiderwire Stealth Smooth 8, 15 lbs & 24 lbs (? converted from kilo's). In my opinion it's very good line. Zero line breaks because of line. Line break...

Re: $100.00 BFS Challenge

Thanks for very comprehensive and creditable wrote review! Obviously those Tsurinoya Dragons are faster and better casting than corresponding Kuying Tetons? (In my opinion Kuying Tetons are very nice rods but not long casting.)

Re: Bfs rod questions

I've never seen a trout casting rod with BFS labeling on it. BFS is usually reserved for bass gear. Kuying Teton SUL, UL (and L) are trout, or rainbow trout, stream fishing BFS rods. Those really are not intended for perch, walley (zander?) or pike. And because of that I can say that those are not ...

Re: Getting into BFS

If shallow bfs spool with portholes, backing it's not needed. Braid with arbor knot + anchor line dead end to portholes. If deeper spool with no holes and braid in use, some kind of anchoring is needed. I have used short mono backing. In light use less than 1 metre. Monofilament (or fluoro) main lin...

Re: Getting into BFS

In my BFS spools with port holes I have spooled directly braid. Because with holes arbor knot can be locked not to slip. Spools without holes I have anchored with bottom mono. Bottom mono doesn't protect spool but it provides friction. Actually one of my spool was adviced not to use mono, because mo...

Re: Getting into BFS

Power Pro’s are noisy. And that’s why I don’t like them. Nowadays I have used mostly Spiderwire Stealth Smooth 8. I have liked it a lot. Lastly I ordered Daiwa Morethan 12. I still haven’t fished it, but it feels so good that I have already ordered more.

Re: Winter is coming

^ That's water temperature that it should be. If it's too hot for fishing, then take a quick bath, then it's OK again. Obviously somebody here in Finland has too hot even on winter because they take baths especially on winter. Surface temperature 43℉ according to Hummingbird in a small lake in south...

The only thing I really have to worry is snowmobile's that are speeding to close.
And Nordic Scaters, that cut line if laid on ice:

Re: Getting into BFS

Kuying Teton SUL and UL rods are cheap and easy to cast with bfs weights. Those are not long casting, but those are easy casting, and fun rods with fish. If you find finesse spool to your current reel, that should be good purchament. And yes, there are cheap finesse spools in Ali for Fuego. Fuego + ...
