Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

Man I wish they already were! I finished up another rod this evening so now I can get these Point Blanks started. I’ll admit speed isn’t my game on building. Some of you guys can flat spin one out but I’m slooow.

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

Today I received my replacement blank. It is the correct blank. I can’t wait to get it built! I’ve decided to build the one that was labeled wrong too. Both of them feel phenomenal and sensitive. The actions are perfect. Now if they’ll get a 7’-7’1” heavy extra fast we will really be in business. Ov...

Re: for Mattman writing on blanks

He is going to start traveling the country writing on all our blanks that aren’t fortunate enough to be owned by builders with good penmanship.

Re: SOLID! - The Shimano Bantam MGL Baitcaster

I love the bantam. To date it’s the smoothest reel I’ve owned. The size feels great. If they’d make a 6oz magnesium version (or a mag curado 71) it would likely be the only model of reel I’d need.

Re: Reels for Better Distance for Lighter Baits

I assume by your options weight is a concern but don’t forget about the bantam. If anything it palms better than the met and chronarch and is mgl. Smoothest of the bunch too.

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

No complaints at all about the communication from Point Blank. Aaron has been plenty hospitable. The new blank should be here in a few days. I look forward to getting it and fishing it especially if it’s anywhere as crisp feeling as the one I received last week. I’ll report back when I get my hands ...

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

I’m going to wait until this is settled before I judge one way or the other. So far communication has been good.

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

Did you measure the dimensions of the blank? If I can get one that feels like the one I received but with more power I’ll be plenty satisfied. The blank I have feels great and would be great for what it could handle. In other words if the actual mh blank feels as lively as this one I’ll be more than...

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

Welp, I took some measurements and sure enough it’s the wrong blank :/ The butt measures the same as a medium and the tip is actually a little smaller than a medium is supposed to measure. So I’m glad it’s not just a terribly rated blank but now I’m dreading dealing with getting the correct one. Thi...

Point Blank PB731MHXF

I received my blank Friday after taking advantage of the Jann’s 10% off for Labor Day. On the sticker it says mh extra fast but under it was a sticker saying fast instead. Seemed odd but no biggie. It’s close to extra fast which it what I wanted. The faster the better. The power though seems a fair ...

Shimano SLX

It’s in at TW and American Legacy. Righties only for now :|

I plan on trying these for myself and my two boys. Looks like they should be good budget friendly combos.

Re: Aldebaran mg7

I was hoping to hear all this. Well maybe not the slight lack of power but still. I’ll have to watch for some good deals on them when my account heals from the recent eBay sales.

Thanks all for the comments!

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

Been quiet in here. What's everyone's thoughts of the Curado DC now that it has been out for a bit? It’s a fun reel to fish. It’s not the end all idiot proof reel it gets made out to be sometimes but with a little tuning on the spool tension knob it becomes really user friendly. It really does skip...
