Re: Number Four REVO Winch by Abu Garcia

I've found that weight is much less of an issue for me, too, as I "mature". But I have fished so many heavier reels in the past that anything below 8 oz. feels light, anyway. I find having a balanced rod makes the reel weight issue go away. I don't even notice what color scheme the reel ha...

Re: Gear tooth shapes

Lets just say all the teeth are cut to "mesh" well. I dont think the material has anything to with it, as much as say the manufacturer making the gears. Thanks for the reply. I was wondering if different materials required different angles, or shapes. I do know that the brass Sol main gea...

Gear tooth shapes

Are the teeth in brass gears cut at the same angle and shape as aluminum gears?

Re: Versus Goliath - Targeting Goliath Grouper in Florida

Mazel Tov! =D> Those fish look like a really big one would have no problem eating a scuba diver! Thanks Mark, really impressive pull on the end of the line. Never knew fighting a Goliath could be so fun... and exhausting, all at the same time. I bet! A 15 lb catfish kicked my butt, and I only fough...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

I wanted to see what a sub-5 oz reel felt like, so I bought an MGXtreme2 for half price, because I'm cheap. That, along with the 13 Fishing Concept Z reel, were my presents to myself. I read that the MGXtreme2 had a weak drag, so I tightened it down and it is fine. I don't know how it would hold up ...

Re: First frog fish of the year

Come on Mark, this is unacceptable. You gotta be throwin' that thing all winter ;) . The Delta rats in your neck of the woods are always braggin' about catching winter frog fish.

From my experiences, too long ago, with stream fishing, I would suggest short and cheap. You are not going to need really long casts, and you are going to beat up your equipment.
