Re: Alphas air stream custom

I’ll wait till it arrives and go from there. Currently awaiting a reply on if the rod I want is available if not then I’ll have to go to choice 2 and see if choice 2 is available.

Re: Recommend $100 UL Spin Rod for Minijigs and 2 lbs test?

Sent you a PM the RR Elite is a decent rod but if you can get some JDM tech they are much better suited at those lighter weights.

I’ll find out the rod I’m trying to source is a trout taper rated down to 1.5g, I’ll be using a similar PE to my spinning setup for the fine line casting.

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I’m jumping onto the ASC boat, have a 7.2L on order now to find the rod I’m after. Planning on light line spooning and if all goes well maybe a second one will be in order. Check out tbe Silver Creek if you can find one. Cosmetically pairs up and feels nice in hand. Really depends on the size lure ...

Re: Ester or PE Braid?

I really enjoy the Sunline BMS in 10lb for shaky heads/semi finesse, and the 14lb Green Invisible Sunline for general purpose. Still cannot decide what to go with for my first BFS setups here though. Narrowed down to either 8lb Sufix or 4.5lb Sunline BMS/Invisible. Not sure that fluorocarbon adds m...

Re: Testing 2018 Lunakia and 18 Corto.

Alphahawk, that Drum is something else on 2 lbs test. Did you try the Lunakia with for trout or was it just the Corto? I would assume the Corto is more sensitive for jigs...? It sure if fast action. Craigthor, I hear you with your spoons - perhaps Lunakia over both Cortos... :) I believe that to be...

Re: Testing 2018 Lunakia and 18 Corto.

Maybe I should have tried the Lunakia over the Prototype, oh well I have my eyes on a few different rods once funds are available.

Re: Alphas air stream custom

We have talked about the casting and specs of this awesome little reel. What is everyone's opinion of this reel? Its a great reel IMO. Does what it is designed to do, cast well in tight cover like what is present in many stream settings. Its smooth and can still get respectable distance. Its appear...

Re: Ultralight casting goals...

Yeah, went through some of the videos was hoping to see some casting lighter weighted lures. He seems to fish this rod at max most of the time. Still sweet though. You see the video where he is cooking a prok stew? He has a sweet "pull start like" food chopper. I have not, I need to go ba...

Re: Testing 2018 Lunakia and 18 Corto.

Great videos as always, which rod do you feel is softer the ‘18 Corto or the ‘18 Lunakia? That drum was a beast it’s always fun to land big fish on light lines.
