Re: Favorite Chatterbait

Wow! Why so many? It's one of my to go-baits and the availability is mostly really bad - therefore I am glad to get the chance to buy some of them from time to time. In that box you have all weights 1/8, 3/16, 1/4Oz and colors? Or just one model? I guess you have a lot of pikes out there. I would t...

What do you mean, are they not making spools and custom parts anymore?

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

I recall receiving a Rage 68MH rod as a promotional rod at one point. (It was a deal, buy two Extremes and get one Rage) And it was a decent rod for the retail price ($149), caught a lot of fish on it. Sensitivity was good. In general I like higher end St. Croix sticks for sensitivity, don't see any...

Re: Shimano and Jackall Prepare to Launch New Poison Adrena rods and Lures at the Classic

Sometimes don't understand logic how this corporate business works... The rods are available for sale in Japan and for overseas buyers since February 2018 . Priced around ~¥30,000, depends of the model. Everyone who wanted to get them, already got it long time ago. And Shimano US listed the arrival ...

Re: DC (Antares, Calcutta, spool tension, distance, etc.)

Could you share those Japanese videos? In order for me to get the best distance on my 2016 Antares DC, I do tight the spool tension to the point where I can go lower on brakes at X Mode. You gotta use X Mode to reach the maximum. Best casts I had - have been at X Mode, brakes set at 4, and spool ten...

Re: Antares 2019?

The channel is all about getting commission from TW, if you click at the links in the description you get ?from=tbassin in the end the TW url. Basically, they will never tell you anything about Sedition or Steez Racing Design rods.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

pAYPAL uses double policies, charging sellers hefty fees, plus making money from the conversion rate, as I recall they always give you exchange rate 2-3 yens lower than it is. Means about 2% from a buyer. I usually use xe.com for exchange rate to figure out how much I own the guy who brings me stuff...

Re: Hedgehog vs ZPI

I been running my Hedgehog Air as dry for quite a while on most of my reels, and the noise settled down. If you like to clean bearings in acetone, go with Hedgehog, otherwise ZPI is OK too, actually I cleaned ZPI bearings in acetone for short period of time, and nothing happened to them. In general ...

Re: Zillion sv tw getting phased out

IMO, silly move. Get that Zillion TW SV with ZPI M or PG spool, and the reel is soooo good for any applications. What is the difference between the M and PG spools? I just ordered a Zillion today and am looking at possibly buying one of these. One is shallow - M, another one is deeper spool -PG. Yo...
