Re: mrpao : Feedback Request Topic

Great guy to deal with. Pao provided excellent communication, and did an awesome job packaging the rod I purchased.

Re: What rod caught you the most fish in 2018?

Re: fantasista regista

Drove home, during lunch, to check out the 6'10" Fantasista that got dropped off by UPS. The rod shipped from Hodgkins, Il, so I was hoping it would get to Michigan in good shape. It's everything I expected it to be. I've been wanting to try a Fanatasista for a long time. What a steal for $158 ...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Nice 23.62" brown trout! Bet that was a fun battle.

I'm appreciating the Alphas air stream more and more.

Re: Bearings have me Perplexed

Its probably due to several years of neglect. The lubricant (oil / grease) separated and the filler material dried/burned up and also probably got contaminated with dirt. This may have caused abrasion around the raceway (rough polishing effect), which causes the balls to skid and not rotate properly...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Couple more pics from today. The reel casts lighter baits better than my Presso, but it's fussy, especially on a breezy day. Was mostly using a Duo Realis Minnow 80SP and LC Pointer 65sp. The drag is buttery smooth, and handled the larger fish in the current with ease. Was using Maxima 10 lb braid w...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Broke mine in on a small river. It does a great job casting out light lures, but I'm still liking my Aldebaran 16 BFS w/ the KTF spool better. guess I need more time on the water with it. Wish I didn't sell my ML Presso rod, and will need to find something to match up with the reel. The Pixy rod was...

Here's two quick pics. Going to put some 6 lb Fireline ultra 8 carrier on it.

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I inquired to Digitaka, the other day, and got them to add it to the pre-order and/or got them to fix the pre-order link. :D

I can't wait to get it in!

Re: Tatula Elite AGS M/MH for Jerkbait?

I kayak fish, and use to own the AGS rod you mentioned. It worked great for light 3/16 to 3/8 jigs. It also did fine working a Pointer 100sp, but it's not a jerkbait rod. I would look for something else.

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Cool gear! What is with the spool on that aldeberan? Look like the ported holes are uneven Thanks. It's a KTF 1st gen spool for the 16 Aldebaran BFS. They couldn't port the spool where the FTB magnetic brake is located. It looks like the 2nd gen spool isn't ported, and allows a more controlled, eas...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Here's my first Shimano combo. Not the greatest pics, but it's still cold out.

Can't wait to see how this rod compares to my other ML casting rods.

Re: Can anyone compare the NRX 852 and dx702?

I have the previous generation of the DX702C, and only use it for bottom contact presentations (Ned, tube, finesse worm). Used it once on a river float with a RC 0.5 and some smaller jerkbaits, but didn't care for using them on that rod.

It wouldn't be my first choice for the Vision 110.
