Re: The Ugly Ducklings

As a fan of "street art" (grafitti, lol) I dig it. It takes some serious artistry to fit that on the side of a reel.

Re: How well does braided line cast on a baitcaster?

Which lb test should I get? I have a 10lb Spiderwire Fluorobraid which is scary thin, almost SHARP with its .0069in(.175mm) diameter and I can't believe people are actually using that thin a braid for baitcasting. Wouldn't any accidental backlash be a disaster? But then again, if I used heavier bra...

Re: No Shimano, No Daiwa

I can't speak for the newer abus or lews, but if I didn't have my shimanos, I'd probably have to go with first or second Gen revos. I already use an abu soron stx 20 for most of my spinning work, and the skeet Reese revo still has a huge following. I used to own a 2nd Gen premiere and an inshore, an...

Re: Shimano Crucial Rods

I looked into the 7'm crankbait rod a couple of days ago at the nearest shop that had them in stock (about an hour away), and I was glad I made the trip. Crankbaits are something I didn't use very much in the past, but I've been trying them more and more recently, with a great deal of success, and I...

Re: New winter CUSTOM RODS - not for the faint hearted :D

Absolutely flawless, as always, savacs! Beautiful creations. I almost cringe at the thought of what the price would be were these for sale, with shipping to the states!

Re: best brick and mortar tackle shop

Mark's in B'ham is an awesome shop. I went there with my brother a couple of years ago to pick up an AR for him. It's amazing how they fit so much in that little store.

Re: TD Zillion vs Curado I: better workhorse reel

Let me start by saying I'm a Shimano guy. I love the palmability of the Shimano reels, and I love the new SVS infinity breaking system. I wouldn't hesitate to grab a Curado for the techniques you described. However, the original Zillion (haven't handled the new t-wing variant) is a boss, probably th...

Re: What is your ideal balance point on a rod?

I'd have to agree, it depends on the technique for the rod. For tip down presentations, I like it an inch or two before the foregrip, but for tip up, it has to be as close to the center of the reel as possible.

Re: Anybody know anything about what G. Loomis is teasing?

It seems to me that Shimano/Loomis is really bringing the heat this year, with the E6X and Zodias both coming out at such a great price point.
