Re: Fuji PULS Palm Support Reel Seat

The extra size and weight of the insert is an issue for some. I love the PULS seat, but it does need to come in more sizes that prevent having to use the insert. You would think that Fuji would make more sizes because the seats are very cheap and easy to make. As far as the PB701MHF, the tip is muc...

Re: Fuji PULS Palm Support Reel Seat

I believe they are similar, but those td-s seats look like they sit the reel lower on the blank. I tried the PULS with the recommendation from toddmc, but I'm not sure how I feel about them just yet. I think part of it has to do with the blank I put it on, a Point Blank PB701MHF. The blank fishes a ...

Re: Bubble fishing for trout

7' fixed leader under a 1/8 oz indicator is not the easiest to cast with a 7' rod but until i find a better method.... I tried a slip bobber but when retrieving the fly it pulls it up out of the zone. What indicator are you using that weighs 1/8oz? Just wondering because I may want to try them out....

Re: What grease are you using for small spinning reels?

How thin is Super Lube when compared to Daiwa Space Age grease?

Asking because it's marketed as a heavy duty grease.

What grease are you using for small spinning reels?

Need a suggestion for new grease for 1000 sized spinning reels. Recently tried Shimano DG01/ACE-0 which is suppose to be Shimano's lightest grease, but I don't really care for it. It seems to get sticky very quickly. Any other thin or lighter grease suggestions?

Thanks!

Re: Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

Here's the picture of the handle as well as the parts I used on the paper (all ordered directly from Matagi). I did cut and shape the cork slightly though, it's closer to 9" I believe. Edit: won't let me post the image for some reason... So here's the link. https://imgur.com/a/ZbZzUOi You can see th...

Re: Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

Reel seat is a painted Fuji PULS thanks to the recommendation of Toddmc. All the components are from Matagi, including the cork. If that's what you're asking.

Re: Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

Beauty. Is that grip sculpted, or pre cut? Is that a Daiwa hook keeper? I threw mine in the trash. Thanks! It's pre cut. I prefer to buy them pre cut since I work every day (less time), but I shape my own grips when I can't find something that I need. Also, no one seems to want cork these days so I...

Re: Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

I didn't measure deflection and I've already built it. Mine does feel closer to an MBR844 than an 843, but I need more time with it before I can clearly say for sure.

Re: Scale Recommendation? +PB701MHF Weight

PB701MHF = 65.34g / 2.305oz (listed as 1.94oz on PB's site) that is a pretty big discrepancy on published vs actual weights... hard to make up .35 oz! I was thinking the same thing! Love the blank though That's what it measured on my scale. Thought it was off too.. But the K2 came in lighter than w...

Re: Point Blank PB731MHXF

Phenix also had an issue with mislabeled blanks according to a thread a while a back. I would think that the manufacturers would have this problem figured out. I understand that most builders don't want permanent markings on a blank, but there should be something permanent that goes on the blank fo...

Re: Aftermarket handles

I'd stay away from those cheap ray's/aliexpress handles. I broke every one that I brought (4 total?). The layers started to peel and the handles had a bit of play.
