Re: 2019 Shimano reels -

I agree. I wish they would at least do a dc reel in a 70 size. That would be sweet. I feel like the dc would shine with a jerkbait, however the reels they offer it in are what i would consider big for throwing a jerkbait. I like the ald 50.

Re: Should I get 872s or 902s NRX

Yes, and the same can be done on float n fly rods. I'm not saying it's ineffective. I'm just saying it is a very soft rod. I like a rod that stays stiff when i try to move the bait. I can just feel the bottom better. Its all personal preference. I was just trying to give the op some insight. When i ...

Re: Should I get 872s or 902s NRX

The 902 is a noodle.
I have the 852 and love it. I bought the 902 and luckily they let me take it back. I haven't had a chance to handle the 872. The 902 is SOFT. I would certainly handle one before purchase.

Re: Aldebaran mgl vs. non mgl

When I bought these i took the line straight from my non mgl alds and maybe had 15-20 ft left over. They are basically identical.
Thats speaking of the ald 30mgl from japan. The casting performance is noticeably better.

Re: TRANX 300 HG Handle Play

The anti reverse sleeve has two ears on it that fit into the main drag plate. If you turned the reel a bit with the handle off the sleeve could have slid out. Take the handle off, drag star off and the () washers off, take the bearing out(if it has one, haven't been in that model), hold the spool fr...

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

I can’t wait. Just .2 oz heavier than current curado k.
Should be a great reel.

Re: Anyone tricked out a Curado K

You can add two bearings per knob and a bearing to the worm gear and it makes for a super reel for the money. Other than that I haven't added anything.

Re: Aldebaran 50 mgl to the US, xg model maybe?

I have picked up two ald 30's and spooled the line off my 50's directly on them and the held all but 5 yards. I was worried about capacity but they are nearly identical. That's with 6/20 power pro braid. They cast amazing!!

Re: New Ald 30mgl

Had a few days off, been putting it to the test. These things cast amazing. I have been jerk bait fishing in some pretty steady strong wind.
These cast at least 25% better than the last version.
Now if the fish would turn on in my part of the world :(

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

The knobs on the bantam are the same as the chronarch mgl- the curado K knobs are larger.

Re: New Ald 30mgl

I use three of them usually for lighter stuff.
I use one on an nrx 802 6/20 power pro for jerkbaits
another on an nrx 842 with 2/10 power pro for anything finesse
another on an nrx 852 with 6/20 power pro for light shaky head 3/16 and some 1/4

New Ald 30mgl

Picked up a new mgl 30 from japan. I was worried about line capacity being down. To my surprise I took the line directly off of one of my fully spooled 50's and it held all but about 5 yards of it??? Have my second on the way. These seem a bit smoother, not sure if they have changed the gearing. The...
