Re: Buying Multiple Bait Colors as Backups...???

Once I find a lure and color I’m confident in, I will buy multiples. I try to stick to basic colors.

Re: General Questions

Bearing upgrade being noticeable depends on what you have to begin with. I’ve changed some in Shimano reels and haven’t noticed much difference.

Braid is my preferred line. I love the small diameter and no stretch. If water is clear add a flouro leader.

I use oil on level wind.

Re: Reels for Better Distance for Lighter Baits

Of the ones you mentioned, I only have the Curado 70 and it handles light lures fine when paired with the right rod.
