Re: Ice Fishing Flasher Battery

Well i went ahead and did it anyways. I ended up buying a Makita usb battery dock and just drilling a small 1/4 hole on the side and soldered two lead wires going out to a 12v 5A step down.

Re: old core 50 and aldebaran or new

I sold my newer Aldebaran and went back to using the old Aldebaran Mg7. I just like how the old ones palm and wasnt a fan of the more hollow feel of the newer reel. I did some mods like the rest here too, ZPI spool, Brenious gears and the usual.

Re: 2019 Shimano Vanquish; 1000SSSPG or 2000SSS?

I have the older Vanquish C200HGS Limited and nit handles line very nicely. I always use straight flouro with 4lb Sunline Shooter or Seaguar Abrasx without problem. I do have the IOS line roller mod installed.
