At those prices, they must be using rejects from other reel manufacturing, and slave labor!
I hate to see us buy them, and support that kind of thing.
Probably not the first point but most likely the second.

Re: Talk me off the ledge please

I am a complete tackle snob I think you know your answer. Get another Aldebaran BFS. That is sound advice if I was going specifically the BFS route. I purposely don't want to spend the money on another Aldebarran. I do have an older MG7 Aldebarran I could spruce up if the XF50 turns out to be a lem...

Re: Talk me off the ledge please

i bought a used xf50L off here for $30 to see what all the hype is about. And to my surprise its a solid reel. I tried 8lb fluoro with 1/8oz crappie jigs and it threw them fine. Surprised cause its like a 12-13 gram spool. I have so much bfs stuff i decided to spool it with 30lb braid and now its m...

Talk me off the ledge please

I was looking for a UL casting combo to chuck small beetle spins and cranks for bluegills here in FL. I wanted something lighter than my two Volkey/Aldabarran and Speedstyle/Aldabarran BFS outfits and I also didn't want to spend a fortune. I spent a few weeks looking around and pulled the trigger on...

Re: Heavy finesse jigs needed

Keitech makes their Mod II football head in 3pks that you can tie on. You said heavy, so the Tungsten will give you weight at less mass than lead. They feature small guards and hooks like the Ike jigs.

Re: (SUL) Super Ultra Light?

The UL Teton did not do too well with Trout Magnets in my experience. I was even using the lager Trout Slayers and the rod would not load very well for me. With the little float, it weighs in just a bit over 1/16oz: https://i.imgur.com/aY983Z1m.jpg?1 In general, I am not loving the Teton for micro ...

Re: Tackle storage for bank fishing

I bought a mid sized back pack from Ozark Trail that has room for 3 3600 boxes, plenty of side pouches for tools and the top is a lined cooler that can hold a few cans or bottles or bags of plastics. It think it was around 25 bucks. It is great for bank fishing or taking excursions in my plastic pon...
