Re: Course of Action

!!!!!

Return label sent out and all I have to do is mail it off for a replacement..

The guy was kinda skeptical he said due to the uncommon complaint however he was very understanding that for the price of the lure. Return label was emailed and I didn't even have to wait for the arrival..

Re: Course of Action

1. Receipt of Mission: V110 taking on water 2. Mission Analysis: V110 taking on water is affecting the action of the bait, ultimately costing you fish. Effectively is a paperweight or Christmas tree decoration. Thise things arent cheap either. 3. Course of action (COA) Development: In addtion to wh...

Course of Action

I have two V110 killer kawaguchi
One has water in it. I’ve not used it much if twice at all and no hitting it on things I’m thinking of contacting MB but is it worth the shipping? I just can’t see past the inconvenience. I brought it from a reputable dealer, should I contact the seller or MB ?

Re: Daiwa SV103 or 50th Anniversary opinions

I fish traps pretty often and my goto is a Fuego with a zillion PE special spool and floro. IMHO you should get a different spool for the sv103. I have two of those reels and I would even be willing to mail you a Steez long cast spool to use in that reel. It’s astronomical how well it cast and the ...

Re: Daiwa SV103 or 50th Anniversary opinions

I have a ZPI PG spool in another Sv103 that I have and it’s even better than the Steez HLC spool especially at lower weights.

Re: Daiwa SV103 or 50th Anniversary opinions

It has been a year so here is a quick update. I was able to source both the J Dream 6.3 and the SV103 6.3 from ebay. I have had a ¾ of a season with the sv103 and 6hrs with the J dream. There is a notable difference between these two reels the J Dream feels smoother and casts noticeable further. I ...

I'd probably use a flipping rig, peg the sinker and bury the hook deep into the bait. 20# fluoro and an Owner Jungle hook. You got an extra heavy rod?
I do actually
Just got 25lb floro and spooled a bantam reel matched with a GLX 895 rod :-k
I think I’m thinking what your thinking

One Smart Fishy Opponent

I often fish ponds whenever possible. This particular pond has a concrete wall that I stand on. Attached to the wall is a square dam that has a opening which allows water to spill over in times when the rains come. Anyways every time I cast to the left corner there is a fish who want bite until the ...

Re: Educate Me on TD-Z 103GL-RZ Limited Edition

With how many fingers in front of the trigger are there reels meant to be palmed with? You are supposed to palm them while casting? I passed on one a while ago because they didn't look like something I could cast and palm but I have regrets everytime I see one. Just one, they sit low on the rod. Yo...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Caught one swimming a jig. !! Huge mouth skinny body. Wanted to buy him some food 😆 Anyways. I didn’t want a reaction bait rod. And I’m trying to want to like this rod. The wife said it’s so light and she doesn’t like it because of that. But I paired it with an Antares and I’m thinking (take a deep ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

I just got mine in..
put on an antares and it balances well
I have an IS73 on the Expride..
I'm trying to find out which is better and what's the difference in the two.. I can say for certain that the IS73 will not leave the expride,, just too good of a fit..
