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

Anybody know what the guide ring material is for this rod (or if not, for other IMX Pro JWR's)? The material is not specified on the manufacturer's page for this combo or for IMX Pro rods.

Re: Time on the DL pays off

Nice! It will be a rush to catch fish with these complex and well-finished constructions.

Re: Daiwa J Braid Grand 8,15,20, 30lbs ABS and Knot Breaking Strength Tests

Curious as to why you did not test the 8 and 15 lb. strengths with the PR knot, especially given the inconsistent FG knot results with the 15 lb. line. Does the PR knot not work well with thinner lines, or were you just more interested in the higher-strength lines?

Re: Sensory Rods

Thanks for the response and pictures, poisonokie. I didn't understand that one of the sentences I quoted referred to a rod pictured in a prior link.

I could see how they would be better suited for finesse setups, but executed correctly they're super comfortable. ... I don't imagine it would feel too comfortable after a short stint of use.
I'm not understanding something here.

Re: Trout spoon recommendations?

The 1/4 oz Thomas Buoyant is my favorite spoon for wading and casting upstream in very clear water. Its weight allows casting far to avoid detection by trout, and its design keeps it from sinking below the depth at which you started your retrieve when you retrieve it just a little faster than the cu...

Re: A few thumbnail sketch opinions

...Figured I would hit a different cove. Turned the key, outboard turned right over. That made me happier. I'd changed the spark plugs a few week backs. My first shakedown cruise didn't go too well, the plugs fell out. I was afraid of tightening them too tightly but anyway ... Got to the first dock...

Re: Longer ML spinning rod

How many guides (including tip-top) does the Steez AGS 76MML have? (By an owner's actual count; I seem to recall a discrepancy between the number in the specs of an AGS rod vs. the number in that actual rod as produced. Could be wrong.)

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

jvelth, I'm not understanding your reply. You begin by agreeing that in general, a shallower spool with the same filled total weight will cast better . Then, in the next sentence, you say there is an exceptional case . In the third sentence, you say, " In this case...shallow spool can be better ." D...

Re: Daiwa Zillion 50th Anniversary Cabela’s Edition

Is this (specifically the Cabela's edition) the reel board members are referring to when they write "Zillion 50th," or was there another "50th" version Daiwa marketed without a Cabela's connection?
