Re: Japan Lure Shop Question?

I never got a 110 from JLS, usually Megabass plastics. I did get a t-shirt from Troutshop.jp though.

Re: Jackall or Robo plastics for drop shot

Out of the choices, I would go with the robo. Personally, I use the Reins bubbling shaker.

I think these guys set no drag and flip them into the boat. You can catch giant GT with the smallest size Saltiga, so muskie should be no problem.

Re: Japan style trout spoons

Any of the matte colors on the darker side would be perfect for trouts.

Re: Rod and reel heaven

Are you going to spool it with braid or full flourocarbon?

Jighead Underspins with Gama or Owner hook

As the ititle says, does anyone know of any brands that uses those hooks? I had some really bad QC VMC hooks from the package. I can return them, but its a pain.

Re: Jackall soft plastics any good for dropshot ?

They used to be my go to, but now i replace them with Keitech and Reins. The Bubbling Shaker is the most effective soft bait for my lakes.

Re: 2016 daiwa certate 2510 vs twin power 3000 xd

I have both reels and would lean towards the Certate. If you want more power, go with the 2510RPE, the "R" means 3000 size body and 2500 size spool and rotor. You really can't go wrong with either, but the characteristics you asked for is closer towards the Certate.

Re: Super finesse Dropshot Rods

I'm with you, the Stinger Shot is way too much rod for this specific application in my hands. Some of my nice panfish rods from the past Kirisame series, maybe even the X7 Parry Arc would be fantastic. That 2016 Ambitious is still a top contender in my mind however... I was actually thinking of the...

Re: Super finesse Dropshot Rods

I don't know about the Stinger Shot, it is a Medium power afterall. I would try to stick with an F0-F1 if i was you or something in the light power department. I personally use a light powered Kaleido rod for the 4lb dropshot setup for the past 6 years and still haven't found anything better.

Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

Evergreen Kaleido Designo Mach 1 is my favorite finesse spin rod. 6'3", Light, Fast, 1/64-1/8, 2-6 lbs line rating. I usually spool it with 4lb Abrazx or Shooter. The biggest fight was an 18 lb carp foul hooked on the dorsal fin :doh:

Re: Spinning reels

It is really all a preference since i own both brands. I own a Stella, Exist, Certate, Vanquish, and Twin Power. I can go with one or the other and it doesn't really matter for me, they are both great brands. Only thing weird is that Shimano has the "C" variants that are compact body with ...

Re: Is there a better choice for me then sunline natural

I use regular Defier, Evergreen HD, Toray Polyamide and Super Natural. If the Defier and Toray is too pricey for you, i think the Evergreen HD is a good alternative because they handle, perform and last just almost the same. I still use a lot of the Super Natural for reels that plans to get respoole...
