The Cosugi is a fun user friendly finesse spool with a little more line capacity than some finesse spools.
Another option would be an Alphas Air or Alphas Air Stream Custom.

Skipping jigs. The SV103 that it's in now is going on my Evergreen Heracles Airy Flip to start off with.

Re: Finesse spinning gear set up

I have a Shimano Twinpower 2500S reel on my Megabass F1-70X4S Hyena spinning rod. This is my flick shake rod. With a 2500 size reel with a shallow spool your going to have less trouble with line memory than a 1000 size spinning reel. If the twinpower is out of your price range, you can get the jdm S...

It does seem to be a pretty hefty magnet, yes, but the braking force is very weak.

So, the magnet is deeper, but the rotor is shallower than on a standard pixy spool?

Let us know how it behaves in the PXR.

It might be a while, but I will. What is the difference between the brakes in the PXR and the Air Stream Custom?

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Cool. I love those Presso rods. It works great! More than enough line and casts for distance and accuracy with the 3.5g spoon and 1/32 jig+plastic I was using. The spoon liked the brakes at ~55% while the jighead needed 90-100%. Still casted just fine though, once I dialed it in. I've got some 2.8g...

Here is my new knife that I just bought. Got it from Sheels because I had a $75.00 gift card and it came with a $25.00 gift card.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

I tried the DX 744 and didn't like it. Ended up taking it back and getting a DX704, liked it much better. Don't think you can go wrong with Megabass, I own several, and love them, but no experience with the XX lineup.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

The bait monkey has started biting and I am getting curious about some of the rods in the 250-300 price point, for an all purpose rod in the 7-73 range, with the potential to handle keitechs, jigs, texas rigged craws, etc. I am most interested in -Expride 72mh -Champion XP 734(probably full handle)...
