Re: Champion Extreme 702C Info

No issues with a 1/16 oz head and a half leeched out Zinkerz or a TRD Ticklerz. It does alright with the ned stuff, but might be a touch too powerful. Wish they still offered the 701C. The 702C is a great bottom contact rod. I really like fishing 2.5" tubes t-rigged with either a 1/16 or 1/8 bullet ...

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

:doh: - I just bought an Alphas CT to go with my orange KTF spool. That's alright, since I really like its "Presso" like color scheme. I couldn't justify spending that much money on a Steez Air and an aftermarket KTF spool. I'm up for purchasing the Alphas Air TW. Guessing KTF will offer a lighter s...

Re: New Fenwick Techna

Happy anniversary goldrod! Thanks for the update on the new Techna's. I've always been a fan of the original Techna series. I was originally bummed on this new release, since Fenwick didn't mention the use of any of their Aramid Veil designs, like Timco/Fenwick offers. That's good to hear about the ...

Re: Presso Spool

The Presso spool has a fixed inductor. It casts differently than the airy red, PX68 or ACS. It's more suited to cast out 3/16 oz hard baits or greater. You have to put a little more into your cast to get the distance, but the spool is very tame. I have very little issues using light braid on this s...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

I've had 16 lb on my Steez CT SV for the season, and the coating has caused some dig in issues. I regularly use 10 - 15 lb braid on Daiwa & Shimano casting reels with no dig in issues. Just an observation. There's some fading on the light green, but I've had zero break offs. It's nice not having an...

Re: Loose rod grip

I would wrap the EVA with painters tape, and keep rotating the rod until the crazy glue sets. When I rehabbed the cork on my old Powell Max, I just used a shoe box with the lid off and cut halfmoon tabs on the top of the box to lay the rod on. It makes it easier to rotate the rod. Good luck on the f...

Re: Fenwick KTF GWT60L

That's a tough question, since my computer and phone have been auto translating for a very long time. I know I had to turn it off to place an order on Karil.co.jp. I believe this is how to set it up. In Google chrome, go to settings, advanced settings, and click on language. Set your default languag...

Re: Fenwick KTF GWT60L

I haven't used any of the KTF / Teimco Fenwick rods, but I've been admiring them for a very long time. I still have a Techna AV spinning rod that still works great for moving baits. I target +20" brown trout, rainbows, and the occasional skamania in my local flows. Over the years, I find myself movi...

Re: All ready for some small stream trouting...

Thanks for sharing. I enjoyed seeing the river pics. I haven't done one thing yet to prepare for spring trout. Now, I really regret selling my Presso casting rod, for the small water.

Re: mrpao : Feedback Request Topic

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