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

http://i66.tinypic.com/2h54tbb.jpg excuse the mismatched colors/nut, I was playing with it to see how I liked it before I color coordinate and match everything up. I've been playing with some of those same "aliexpress" handles with a dremel, you have a single handle in a flash. the only negative I ...

Re: BFS rods: JDM v CDM

I started with a Kuying Teton 662L (which I think was the gateway for a lot of the CDM BFS users). It has been a fun rod, great for small cranks and moving baits. I was a little disappointed in how it handled jigs. This led me to look for more of a BASS style BFS as you mentioned. I also followed Br...

do you have a link or anything on how to just get a tip?

Re: lines for bfs setups

is that the Teton 552SUL? Is it a bass or trout taper? I have the Teton 662L and it is a mod-fast taper.

Re: Spinning rod with baitcasting reel?

I was actually today just thinking about building a rod that can serve both spinning and baitcasting purposes. Won't be for a while but that is possible. I may look somewhat odd but it will be functional.....:) Daiwa makes the Ardito-TR Travel Casting/Spinning rod... https://img.tacklewarehouse.com...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

been trying out a DIY spool in the Tat 100 with the Proflex 2. I have caught literally 50+ bass with this Proflex 2, ranging from 1# -4#+, the majority 2.5# *the big girls haven't showed up as of yet). I even had mr.whiskers grab my keitech spider with about 3' of line from the rod tip and run hard,...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

This bass was one of the smaller ones at about 1.8#, the lipless is 4.5g ( anything smaller and the bass would just ignore it, this matches the smallest of the tilapia fry in the lake) With 1.5PE/15# J-braid grand the Proflex 632UL/PX68R is a tough combo to beat for “FUN”. https://lh3.googleusercont...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

Not sure about the Volkey BFS, haven’t seen one. The Kuying Teton is a TTC-662L. The Tsurinoya Proflex II is a C632UL. Both cast 2g-5g lures very well. I’ve been using a 4.5g lipless (scale weight)from basspro for the bass at my pond. The Teton is more of a mod-fast and is a bit heavier action than ...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

Yes, I’m using 1.5PE (15# J-braid grand). I have caughrt about 15 bass between 1.5#-4# (4.18/4.2) over the past couple of days trying out these BFS rods. I have used my PIXY68R, Core50, SOL, Tatula 100 (DIY) spool. Tough little rods. https://lh3.googleusercontent.com/lwxvBdFMSlgxTaATUKTWZCsYrtWshcvd...

Re: Tsurinoya Proflex 2 Impression

I received my Proflex yesterday. I ordered on 1/8/19 so the shipping wasn't bad at all. My only complaint with the transaction is that tracking info would come in spurts (I guess its better than no tracking ;) ), I would get four or five updates all at the same time. I also purchased a Kuying Teton ...

I have the Daemos/FMJ combo for the whole range of jig/TR and swimsuits. I think they complement each other well.

Re: Megabass F5-72X Daemos

I've used the PIXY and a tuned SOL on it, it was great for cranking and texas rigging. I swapped out the Pixy for the new Tatula 100 as I really like an 8.1:1 for my plastics. I think I am going to get a JDM Steez XG for it.
