Re: How Do You Keep Your Fishing Closet Organized?

I use to have a fishing "closet," that eventually became a fishing room. Then I started doing saltwater as well, and now I have a partial fishing garage as well. I have boxes and boxes of lures in cabinets, racks that are mounted above my desk. Another wall rack with rods that don't have reels on th...

Re: BFS Travel Rods?

Greetings. I just pre-ordered the MB TRIZA F0-63XTZ Aello - supposed to be here end June but we'll see. In the meantime I'm thinking that it might actually be on the lighter end of what I'm looking for. What other travel/multi piece BFS do you guys like? Check out Majorcraft, they had a Go Emotion ...

I understand the law of diminishing returns, but for this price range I was expecting for more.

I'll stick to JDM, and for technique specific stuff my NRXs.

Nice review, it helped me save some coin for once! :lol:

Re: 50th build

The 50th is still one of my favorite reels. After a few upgrades from stock, it is nearly bulletproof and stunning.
Awesome job! =D> =D> =D>

I use a late 80s pistol grip set-up to chuck spinnerbaits and paddletails in tight quarters. Also has sentimental value.

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Most over hyped? Megabass But do I love my "Ninja Epic Proportions Phase IIVVXX Destructo Velociraptor?" Yes I do. 8-) Compile X just left me perplexed, dead in my hands. I don't think Dobyns is over hyped. You get what you pay for. I do agree the guides are mediocre, but I have never been able to b...

Get the set and replace the set. Tolerances will be better. Keep the old extra gear as a backup.

Re: UL BFS Rod Lengths - please suggest

Just to add to all the great info already given. For me, I don't like my BFS rods to be to "whippy." A decent quality blank is a must. I like light tips, with fast actions, at around 6'6-6'10. I want to be able to react quicker to bites, and have a chance to keep bites away from nearby structure bef...
