Re: New Worm Gear Material

It is a polymer based material with some reinforcing properties. They are fine and we see virtually zero issues. The only damage we have seen is from stuff like sand which wrecks aluminum, brass and other materials as well. There are many reasons we went to it. One is consistency. There are variati...

Re: New Worm Gear Material

It is a thermoplastic. Its been discussed at length here in the past. The Chronarch and Chronarch MGL are the only 2 reels that I'm sure had that worm gear. Not sure about other current offerings, though. Is less weight the reason to use the plastic, or is there some performance benefit? I suspect ...

Re: Steez Gear Mods

I used the brass 6.3 gear set out of a sv103. I put them in my Steez SV 103. Worked like a charm. You will need the drag stack to. They are different sizes. Correct, the 1st gen Steez SV reels are the same frame as the original Steez SH reels, as are the TN and LTD versions. But wouldn't that mean ...

Same with gloves, unfortunately. Too bad the blanks aren't available. I've always preferred customs, anyway.

Re: New Saint overpriced or not?

Man, if it didn't have that SK reel seat, I'd be on it. That reel seat makes my hand cramp after about 30 minutes. It always feels like its gonna fall out of my hand, so I squeeze harder on it.

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

I was waiting to how long it would take for someone to discover this. Plenty of bfs reels available. I certainly hope Daiwa releases a non bfs version of this reel. Same here. I didn't like the look much, but, like you, the specs have me interested in a non-bfs version. I don't know Tim. Are you su...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Yes, we have some high mountain lakes in N. GA. Some even have trophy brown trout. Burton, Blue Ridge, Nottely, Chatuge, Tugaloo, Raybun, Conasauga, Yonah, Talullah Falls are all way up in the mountains. I thought that you had some high elevation lakes. I bet they are beautiful, like Lake Ouachita ...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Yes I would guess she had already spawned. Though in FL some fish will still spawn into April. They start early in November but most of the spawning is in Jan/Feb. We had fish spawning on the 4th of July on my home lake (DVL) about a decade ago. It has a quarry that is almost 300 feet deep. A few d...

In front of the label area of the blank, unless the label is too long. I usually position it on the left side or bottom of the blank. If the blank has a thinner diameter, I'll place it a little closer to the reel.
Same here, but always on bottom. It catches the line if I put it to either side.

Re: Ice out bass

I'm happy. Ice out on my ponds already. Went out Tuesday and Wednesday. I did try lipless, football jig, jerkbaits, ned rig. Nothing. No bite. I fished shallow, deep, really slow. Water is stained, but not muddy. Ponds look dead. Didn't see any baitfish. What do you guys think how long it will take...
