Re: PVC coated mesh or rubber net

I use a Berkley silicone rubber net. Had it for about 5 years now and still going strong. Trebles do not get stuck and never had a bass jump out. Don't know if these are available in the USA.

Re: Shimano Rod Guides

Have owned lots of Shimano rods . Clarus, Compre, Crucial, Cumara, Scimitar etc etc. Cheap to expensive. Never had any issues with the guides except where self inflicted with the assistance of my foot, a rod locker or car door.
Oh....I see the OP has disappeared. [-X :lol:

I have switched to baitcasters for all my reaction lures now mainly because there is a far wider selection of technique specific baitcasting tackle...

Re: Update on Shimano spinning reel binding issue

Thanks everyone for the replies. Aquaholik that is a good tip. Just out of curiosity is there an interchangeable/updated friction ring I can put on this older reel and does anyone have a part number. What is the purpose of the friction ring and if removed all together does it cause the rotor to fee...

Re: Airrus Rods

nice to see a thread on Airrus rods again 8-) I still have a couple of the original co-matrix rods from the early 2000's. The 7Medium was a recommendation from Ken for spinnerbaits and I've not found anything better ever. Kind of a mix between graphite and glass feel too it. This is a 4 year old th...

Re: Go to jigs for largemouth

Re: Buzzbait Setup

I use a Cumara 7'2" MH paired with a Excence DC loaded with 50lb braid. The 34 IPT gets the buzzbait to the surface in a hurry. :D
