Re: Certate 2500-H JDM

Daiwa needs to take the last step and get rid of the remaining gold on the Certate. The gold on the Certate is the titanium nitride spool lip, which is a good thing. The gold also matches very well with a Megabass Destoryer rod :big grin: I agree on the gold matching the Destroyer series, the new E...

Re: What are you cranking with?

Hey Jorrick, it depends on the bait I’m throwing. Typically I’m throwing 11 lbs for most lighter 1/4-3/8, I’ll go up to 15 lbs for some DD baits. Like you, I waited until a sale and stocked up and now have several spools. Also heard rumor earlier this year that Defier was no longer going to be avail...

Re: Shimano and G.Loomis Launch Limited Edition Bantam MGL & IMX-Pro Combos

take my money please! as amazing as this combo is for the price, I am kind of thinking it might have been better to pair the bantam up with one of the newer more 'all around' MBR IMX Pro's like an 843c or 903c would it not? Even better price/deal from an online vendor offering an additional 10% off...

Re: Protecting reels from scratches

I'm super conscious about putting covers on my reels when not in use, even if I'm just stopping for a quick break to have a drink in my boat, I put the cover on before resting the rod/reel next to me. In my old bass club, whenever I sold any of my reels, they went quick as everyone knew how I treate...

Re: Tackle Tour LIVE

I could host the watch this backlash special! Wind here has been fierce (15-25 with gusts over 35). I had two reels blow up on me bad last weekend :lol: It was super windy when I went out Sunday, and I can say that both the NRC001-M (and presumably PG) and Daiwa SV Light spools are both incredible ...

Re: Protecting reels from scratches

SW reels are notorious for getting banged up on the SoCal longrange sport boats, they'd hit other reels or the walls when in the boat's rod holders. To prevent this from happening to my higher end reels, and rods too, I used 3M Clearbra on them. The same stuff used on cars. It's fairly easy to apply...

Re: Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

My main my casting DS setup is a Conquest BFS on an Edge Black Widow BWC DSR 710-1. I've also used my Megabass Carbon Hein and Steez Racing Design STZ RD 6101ML+ with my PX Type R in a pinch.

That Civivi Elementum Damascus Carbon Fiber is a good looking knife! I only have one damascus blade, it's a Chris Reeve small Sebenza.

Re: Lets see some Blades

Just learned of other blade enthusiasts here on TT, very cool!

Allow me, if you will, to share a couple more of my indulgences, besides fishing. :big grin: The Insingo is my EDC and the watch was the one I wore to HH last night.

Re: Top Water rod for 1ozers

I pointed that out as the Extreme Mission is a much nicer rod, quite the gem from the X7 line!
