Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

I have a Elite long cast. I'm getting a couple more ft over the og Tat Sv with the same bait. Nothing earth shattering. Both reels have stock spool bearings flushed and lubed with yellow rocket fuel.

Re: Best lipless crankbait in da business

Booyah one knocker and hard knocker in royalty catches fish in just about any body of water I fish.
Yo Zuri Rattlin vibe 2.6 in gold n black does the same.

Re: Sunline Super Natural

Well I fished the super natural two evenings in a row , and was not impressed.Took it off and threw it in garbage. Way more stretch than big game , and it seemed to curl up bad in front of the bait , kind of a weird characteristic. And the sensitivity is not good enough to be worm fishing that's for...

There’s much better mono and copoly available that’s priced the same or better. Defier is great line but the price is a huge negative for a mono
That's what I was thinking , a lot of money for mono. I'm sure it's good stuff though.

Re: Sunline Super Natural

I change line often. Probably just spool up this worm rod with Sniper next. Wanted to try this out because it was cheap lol.

Re: Braid that holds it's color

Spiderwire invisibraid , it's white , never changes color. It's my fav for spinning reels , I use it with about 2' or 3' of leader. I tried a white braid a few years ago And some of the tannic ponds that I fish turned it brown almost instantly. I think I used one of the Suffix lines. Do you have an...

Re: Braid that holds it's color

Are there any high viz. braids that are particularly long lasting? I only grudgingly use braid on my spinning reels and without the ability to easily line watch I can’t stand the stuff. Spiderwire invisibraid , it's white , never changes color. It's my fav for spinning reels , I use it with about 2...

Re: Braid that holds it's color

The only one that I have used that actually keeps its color "and I have use a lot of braids" is vicious no-fade braid. You cannot have used the Black Velvet then... I have three different diameters and all are pitch black as on the day of purchase. Slightly thick and and a little ropey though... I ...

Re: Braid that holds it's color

Picked up some FX2 60# in dark green today. Gonna string up my flipping stick. I love the j-braid x4 although it fades pretty quick. But , I noticed this afternoon when it gets wet , it kinda gets dark again. Probably doesn't make a slight bit of difference, it's a reaction bite. Just worrying about...

Re: Bone Stock Reels

When y'all get a brand new reel , do you open them up right away and give them a proper lube ? Or do you run them the way they come first ? I've always lubed them up right out of the box but , wondering what others do ?
