My 843s is pretty light. Not the lightest rod I own, but close.

Re: Knot question

Thanks for the replies guys, I think I’m going to take a spool of line to work with me and practice at my desk.

With the light line should I be increasing my number of wraps?

Going from 20# Samurai to 7# FC sniper.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

If it makes it a year, anything that happens to it is operator error. It is eligible for the expeditor program too True on blanks, but guides, bindings, reel seats/glue are different IMO. Also a function how often a rod is fished re: the above. I'll agree to a point..... though most people that are...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

This might be very important. You will want to clarify the warranty. I assumed it would have a limited lifetime warranty like other G. Loomis rods. My tackle shop says it only has a one year warranty (like Shimano rods). I sold my NRX for one of these and now I wished I hadn’t. There is no way I am...

Rod and reel heaven

Thanks so much to Gary and Brian at The Tackle Trap for getting my little slice of rod and reel heaven on earth shipped my way this week. :D 843s SJR and a C3000XG.

It was printed in Dobyn's own newsletter, release around Feb 2018, so if it is just a rumor its coming straight from the top.

Stradic CI4 End Cap - Not Red

Bantam,

I was hoping you could direct me to a reel that has a threaded end cap that would fit the knob on a Stradic CI4 2500F? My objective here is to find a replacement knob end that is not red that will be a direct threaded replacement into the knob.

Thanks

Re: New product request

Well we go by alphabetic order, so a new version would be the FJ. It will take a while to get to FO... You can always lay your reels on the floor and stomp around them shouting FE-FI... Do some heavy sniffing like you are actively trying to find the men that entered your lair. Get some old green ar...

New product request

Hey bantam,

Can we pretty much make my entire life and make the next generation of Stella be called the FO? That way I can get a picture of three of them lined up together that say FE FI FO and complete it with FUM and some sort of witty comment??? :lol:
