Re: First Tests and a Look Inside the 13 Fishing Concept Z - Zero Ball Bearing Baitcaster

Got one of the 6.6:1 reels from TW, and I don’t think it’s all hype. Is there a lot of overhyping it in videos online? Yes. True the reel doesn’t magically outcast evertything, in fact i’m finding it very comparable to a lot of other reels costing as much or 50 bucks more, which in itself is good co...

Re: The Walking Baits: Top 5 Walk-The-Dog Picks

I haven't touched an actual Spook in forever. For topwater I usually just turn to the R2S whopper plopper, just easier to fish and it works. When I do break out walk the dog baits I always use the Vixens or Paycheck Repo twins.

Re: Fast and Furious and Environmentally Friendly? KastKing Does it All

Speed Demon looks interesting. Has anyone actually used/owned any KastKing reels?

At this price point I'd buy one just to try it but wouldn't be surprised if it literally falls apart after one trip. Are these reels all show and no go or are they a good value?

Re: Shooting for the Sky - Castaway's New Titania Air Rods

Best looking Castaway rod, EVER. No microwave guides, thank goodness. For under 400 bucks, yeah I'm in.

Re: The Dark Knight - Shimano’s Exsence Spinning Reel

I want it! Just wish they came out with one size smaller, that could be the finesse spinning reel.

Re: The “Curado” Series extends to Bass Rods

Meh, these rods look way too plain, boring. The IMX-Pro looks like a better fit for the new Curado's.

Re: Daiwa’s New Daiwa Tatula Elite Rods make Carbon Guides “Affordable”

I dunno about these guides on a Frog Rod, interested to see if they can hold up. I know that carbon is supposed to be stronger, but what if they get nicked? Seems like an odd application for AGS. Finesse fishing I totally get.

Re: Making a Power Play, the Shimano Tranx Baitcaster

I'm shocked you found the tranx to be less refined. I found that even after 1000lbs of fish on it. And both reels serviced and lubed with Krytox. That the Tranx felt as refined as a Metanium...And almost as refined as an antares (close but not quite) I've got both the MET and the TRX and my experie...

Re: Concept E Magnesium

Justgopen, Yes, the entire frame and sideplates are protected. Our headquarters is in Tampa FL...so you can be assured that we have abused these reels in saltwater. We have submerged them and fished, re-submerged and fished over a period of testing of about 7 months. Additionally they have been tes...
