Re: Where to purchase JDM blanks?

I haven't seen many people talk about rods being built on JDM blanks on TT. I think Matagi has a few. Rodbuilding.org might be a better site to get more opinions on the best places to get the best blanks. The shipping is too expensive for most. There was lots of info on this when I googled "Ja...

Re: Graphiteleader ‘18 Corto compared to Corto Nuovo Prototype

Got a few hours out on the water today, not sure how these rods that are so similar are so different at the same time. The ‘18 Corto is very much on the UL spectrum near the top in both reaction and casting. The Nuovo Prototype is more like described in the L spectrum though towards the bottom of t...

Re: Graphiteleader ‘18 Corto compared to Corto Nuovo Prototype

Can't wait to hear a report.
They look so similar in so many ways. But the Exist looks good on both. 8-)

Re: ‘18 Corto Graphiteleader 6’10” Trip Report

Good to know that it is more powerful than I thought. It is very interesting to see how the blank transitions flawlessly to a different tip. It does seem ever so slightly tip heavy, after trying four of my current reels. I haven't found the perfect match yet. Might just go lighter with the reel and ...

Re: ‘18 Corto Graphiteleader 6’10” Trip Report

Just got this baby delivered. Boy is it xfast action. Super light, and the tip of the blank is one of the thinnest i've ever seen. There is no doubt in my mind that this is going to be one sensitive rod. I would be hesitant to yank it on a snag. Only light hooks and light line on this baby. Can't wa...

Re: Spoon storage and hook swaps...

At least in the bay area, most of us use Kastmasters and Spinners for trout reaction bites.

Can't wait to get mine. Going to go after some trout at some local lakes here. Just haven't figured out a reel yet.
Thanks for sharing!

I'm going to focus on UL this year. Got a Corto headed my way. The UL guys on this forum are costing me an arm and a leg! :lol:

Where to purchase JDM blanks?

Do any of you know if there is a place where I can purchase JDM blanks?
I am looking to have a few xfast Ajing rods built for UL fishing.
Thanks!

Would the tt632UL work? Seems good for the price and specs seem right.

Depending on where you are, Hi's Tackle Box has a lot of the Kuyings on display in their store in South San Francisco.

Re: Megabass F5-72X Daemos

I love my Daemos. I use it for jerkbaits, and single hook power fishing. Mine is paired with a Daiwa Ize Light.

Re: Alphas air stream custom

You guys are killing me... As if I needed anyother Alphas variant... So what I am gathering is that this is performing better than the 16 Alderbaran? I havent compared the 2 reels directly. 1. I no longer have the stock spool for my Aldebaran BFS 2. Its winter and the light lures do not like to cas...
