Re: New Powell Endurance line coming

Good deal maybe I was looking at them the wrong way. The trigger looked a little thicker which resembles the pac bay real seats and they aren’t as comfortable in my hands anyway I stand corrected and I’m definitely interested now. I have the previous endurance model 775 I think it is and it’s a grea...

Re: Buzzbait Setup

You can use mono or you can use braid, but don't use mono and braid. No leaders with buzzers. It's really not necessary your just adding an extra knot to the equation and because it's a moving/reaction bait fish aren't going to see your line before it's too late anyway.

Re: New Powell Endurance line coming

Upon further inspection it looks they are using the generic ECS reel seats.... Crap !!! Can't rod Companies just spend a cpl extra bucks and use the real thing ? Heck even Duckett Went back to using genuine Fugi ECS reel seats.

Re: Chap stick on your line for Knots.

I think reel magic has a silicone base so started using it to cinch down all or most of my braid knots and it really works well especially when cinching shark knots or Snelling. So I'm sure it would work great tying a leader with braid. Otherwise spit for mono or flouro works fine.

Duckett Triad

Anyone checked em out ?? Saw a cpl in Cabelas and they feel and look nice. Priced in the $129 range so in between the micro magic and Ghost. I like the reel seat and the guides are upgraded from the Ghost rod.

Re: Floating soft bait for Carolina Rig?

Leader line type doesn't matter much as the plastic your pulling will trail along the bottom behind the weight once you start reeling. That being said the "sinker" is actually the attractor. The bass noses down to investigate what is stirring up the bottom and will take the plastic being d...
