Re: Any baits out there that "walks" by itself?

I can only group those lures with the big lips similar to jitterbugs. Savage Gear just came out with a variety of lures like that. One of them looks like a bat.

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

So I was just looking at the worm gearing and noticed that it was very aggressive on the Chronarch MGL as well as the Bantam MGL. I got to eyeballing it and counting the handle cranks and watching the levelwind line guide go through the full cycle from left to right and all the way back. Looks like ...

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

I think that's what I notice about the MGL spool compared to older Shimano reels. The spool starts up faster...or meaning feels like less force is needed to get it going.

Re: Buying Multiple Bait Colors as Backups...???

My budget is mostly just one of the color and if it's a really productive lure, I may get another of the same color for backup.

Re: General Questions

Some stock bearings are really good already. I'm not into aftermarket part upgrading, unless somethings is broken/worn out.

I have like 90% braid/superlines. It's just my preference. The only time I really want flourocarbon lines is windy conditions.

Grease on my levelwind.
