Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

Interestingly enough, the past couple of days I have been tying Titanium hook keepers to many of my Asian Market rods. .......mostly Major Craft rods, a couple of Kuyings and a Tsurinoya Dragon. The phrase on blank of my Volkey between the split grip is "Racing Spirit".........someone commented that...

Re: Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

Well since I didn't get any feedback about this rod, I decided to go with something that I know and that was a Kuying Rainforest 702M. I have been tearing up inshore snook and reds with the Kuying TopCaster ML spin, and wanted a medium power rod to go in between the TopCaster and a pair of MH rods a...

Tsurinoya Pro Flex II Spinning rod

I am interested in this rod. Does anyone have any experience with it? There is a 672ML and a 702M.
I notice the handle looks like a Major Craft Volkey and I know Tsurinoya copied the Volkey on their older Elite series right down to the graphics. Any info on the Pro FlexII spinning rod is appreciated.

Re: Kuying Teton arrival, unpacking, first impressions ...

Looks nice. I just got my Ace Hawk 2 piece rod. Comes with a light and ultra light tip. The rod was like $37. It shipped in PVC and came with a rod holder as well. My initial after 1 trip on the water is this rod is UNBELIEVABLE for $37. It feels like a quality rod. Is Ace Hawk a Kuying rod? I've n...

Re: BFS Training Line

That poor Trulinoya Volkey 65UL knockoff broke in half on hookset. What is this Volkey Knockoff you speak of? The older Trulinoya Elite. I think I jammed the ferrule into the top section too hard and weakened it. This was my 1st ned rig and 1st BFS fish. I was testing the BFS waters with the Elite ...

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

Here is what you do.........pull off about 20ft more line than what you expect to cast when you add a little zip to your casting motion.........then put about a 2" piece of electrical tape on the spool........wind the line back on........you should not have this issue again. What happens when a fis...

Hey earthworm77, any update on the XF50? How do you like it?

So far so good but I want more time with it before I do a detailed review.

Re: Building the Ultimate BFS Rod

I tend to go by this rule when I am building anything from a rod to making baits.........I have to fish it first......so I build the best I can using the best I can afford. Why build something inferior if you can help it?

Re: 13 fishing defy silver

Ooh OK... I have some questions regarding the presso :lol: Do you have the 2 or 4 piece? How are the connections? True to their ratings and action? As sensitive as a $60 rod can be? Would you buy again? Both are 2pc. The ferrules are pretty small and comparable to most modern multi pc rods. Mine ar...
