Re: Bubble fishing for trout

Has anyone tried the USDM Daiwa Presso? they make a 9' , 2-6# UL model but at $80 I'm a little leary on quality. I wrote a review for the US Presso and am putting the finishing touches on getting photos. It should be up by the 1st of the the year here. I got a 6-6 UL Presso for 45.10 shipped on eba...

Re: Micro bass jig BFS rod

I've got a few Corzza's. I really like them too. The Volkey is a better all around rod in my opinion. I think I heard from somewhere that the Corzza was designed as a replacement series to the Volkey.

Re: Micro bass jig BFS rod

It is xfast in my opinion. I throw jigs on it all the time.
I also have the 6-8 or 6-9 UL Volkey, it is a bit slower, that is the rod I throw single hooked cranks on, it is perfect for that.

Re: Do I need a BFS reel?

Re: If I need new BFS reel?

For you guys that like the 12 Aldebaran BFS XG platform, a KTF or an Avail ALD1224 with the magnetic brakes will put the OG spool to shame in performance. The OG spool holds the same amount of line as the 32mm Yumeya and that is one of the things that it has going against it. John, could you put a ...

Re: Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

Agreed, I wouldn't touch any of those cheap Chinese reels, I don't have the same confidence they would be as good as the rods. Zero confidence in fact.

Re: Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

I bought a bunch of Corzzas from Plat when they had them for 50% off.........ah the good ole days. Still have a few of them. Lowrange, I believe your review of the Leadership was what prompted me towards looking into the Kuying rods. I think, if I am not mistaken you also got one of their casting re...

Re: Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

I feel much the same about this forum (though love is a big word where I live :shock: ). Tackle enthusiasts and many different opinions on little things is a big part of that to me. That is why I voice mine. I do agree with you on many aspects concerning that rod. Most importantly that you get a lo...

Re: Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

Thank you for a very nice review and photos. I am no huge fan of the Kuying Topcaster or Kuying in general. The Topcaster blank is thick-ish and the EVA looks cheap, which are only minor things. Most of all, I dislike that they use Fuji-style labelling for guides and the reel holder, which are not ...

Re: Micro bass jig BFS rod

I've got multiple combos for that but my favorites would be my 6'8" L BFS Poison Glorious Long Distance with a 12 Aldebaran BFS XG and my 6'5" L BFS Expride with a Aldebaran Mg-7 or 16 Aldebaran BFS XG. If I were to buy a new combo today, it would be the new 6'8" L BFS Expride with a...

Re: Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

Good write-up, Craig. After this, I might be online this afternoon buying a couple of them myself. I don't think it would take much for these rods to become anyone's favorite low cost options. In the event you accidentally had a catastrophic incident and broke one.....well, it is a lot different th...

Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2

Kuying TopCaster Rod review X2 Craig DeFronzo I am 100% guilty of being a tackle snob. I like what I like and usually that centers around high end Japanese equipment. I normally have no time for anything outside of that realm. I also almost never buy into the hype associated with new tackle releases...

look into a 500 series reel, maybe a 1000 is too much for the size of the stream

Re: Considering adding a second and looking at BFS...

I have a Cardiff 1000SHG, the ratio is 5 to 1.
You should be ok with that for small stream fishing.
