Does the fused carrier have memory, like a monofilament or fluorocarbon line?
Line memory yes.

Like mono or flouro...no. Fused superline has very little spring resistance memory. 1/32 oz can easily pull line pretty much straight on the retrieve.

Re: Jbraid grand issues

I have noted that JBraid Grand is softer then J-Braid and easier to separate the braids when pinching a small section and pushing it together.

Re: So... Fireline

The line will ribbon out after some use or it will ribbon out if a lot of pull pressure in applied. Other than that It's very hard to feather thumb the spool with that stuff. I can't tell.

Re: Casting + Internal Damage

If the clutch was disengaged/reengaged during the cast/crank, then it's more than likely the pinion gear set grinding trying to mesh. There maybe some teeth damage from the main gear and pinion gear set.

Re: BFS and PowerPro

At times manufacture label diameter doesn't mean much...when taking two lines from two different brands.

The one listed at .008 mm is sometimes thicker than the one listed at .012 mm. You can feel it and even just eyeball them side by side and notice it.

Re: Superslick V2 Moonshine

Some fluorescent lines show up better with polarized fishing glasses on...like the old Stren lines - original mono and Microfuse superline.

I'll assume this Moonshine will too.

Did they advertised it glowing under moonlight or did you assumed it will glow under moonlight?

Re: Securing braid to the rod?

How many rods or how are you transporting your rods? I'd say that on my lighter power rods, I get unwanted line tangles here and there. On my heavy rod power, I don't have any issues with braids. Since the rod tip isn't flexing during transport/travel, the line never loosens up. Other than that, ins...

Re: Trout spoon recommendations?

Acme Kastmaster and Luhr Jensen's Cast Champ are always my first pick. Simply they work in various water from ponds to stream rapids. If need a heavier type Krocodiles would be my next pick. If heavy weight and for drifting scenario Acme KO Wobbler spoon. Nothing fancy but works are Bomber Slab spoo...

Re: Baitcasting Reel: Single knob handle instead of double?

So little to do with the actual reel, but when traveling around and holding a bunch of rods in one hand just to set them down in the corner here and there. When you go to grab the rod you want and find that the handles are tangling upon themselves on reels and lines. That is to say there's a slight ...
