Re: Knot question

Get the Daichii Knot Tool 2.0. Holds the line in place and is a snack to use. I use it for all braid strengths from 6lb to 40lb and leaders from 6lb to 45lb. Comes with instructions, showing how to tie a Rizutto finish. Essential to pull hard on the knot until the braid changes colour before you ti...

Re: Dual-Yozuri

I am also interested...I searched under Dual but didn’t find anything....then I found that the word is spelled Duel.
How does it compare with the new PowerPro?

Re: Backlash proof reel

Thanks for the replies,much difference between the Zillion and Tatula? The Tatula SV TW was reviewed by TackleTour and won the Editor's Choice Award. Here's one of the comments: My initial thoughts on the SV TWS reel the second I unboxed it was just how attractive the new baitcaster was. Other CT r...

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

I look at the specs of the 853 and the 893, and they are the same EXCEPT that the 893 is 4 inches longer.

I don't read nearly as much about the 853 as I read many favorable comments about the 893?

Is there some major difference in the way that the two rods fish that I am missing?

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

I don’t have an 893c...but I keep reading great things about it.

What are the applications, and what makes it so great?

I looked at the specs, and it’s over 7 feet long, and that is usually a turnoff for me.

Re: Braid Scissors Question

Picked up this tip from Bass Boat Central. The kids Fiskars scissors at Wally World are only about $2 and work really well. I do have a pair of Boomerangs also, and they work really well also. For trimming ends of a leader knot, they can get as closer than any scissors I've tried. I posted earlier ...

Re: Rod and reel storage in between trips

I use the Cabela’s reel bags to store my reels. Very convenient.

Rods are kept in Stik Jackets.

I may keep some lower end combos together, and put a reel cover over the reel, and a Stik Jacket on the rod.

Re: GYCB Fat Ika?

I fish them with the skirt trailing, but some people put the skirt at the top at the hook eye.

What method do you use?

I have also read about inserting a nail. Comments would be appreciated.

Re: Preferred Shaky Head Worm? Is Floating Necessary?

This thread from two years ago presents excellent info on floating worms.

I see that there is more recent interest into floating worms so I’m bumping to get more attention.

One major point is my posting of the message that I received from Roboworm concerning the floating of their worms.

Re: Z man Zinkerz not floating ?

I read the Bassmaster article on Ned.

To get the best action from the TRD, I read where the salt should be removed or greatly reduced.

I would like to know how you reduce the salt.

Thanks. I hope this is the right thread to ask the question. I did a search on TRD and wound up here.

Re: Abu is complete garbage compared to Daiwa and Shimano

I would say that Abu is # 3 behind the other two brands....or Abu could have slipped to 4 since Lew’s has come up in recent years.

The TWS and SV spool have made Daiwa # 1. The TWS is great reel engineering.

Re: Terrible Chinese knock off reels

I have read the entire thread, but has anyone used the KastKing brand? I bought a few KastKing brands, and returned all of them. The brakes must be turned up all the way, and even then you get loops frequently. I had a friend try them. He said they cast like an Ardent that he has. One cast will be p...
