Re: G Loomis Build Quality

Ouch. Totally unacceptable on a mid tier rod let alone top of the line. It's common unfortunately. I stopped buying Loomis a couple years back after 3 unsuccessful attempts at getting a rod without obvious flaws.

The spool fits but the bearing is a different size.

Re: J Dream

Nice.
What gear ratio did you get?
I've got the 7:1 on a steez frog rod.
Perfect match and really bombs a frog.

Hope it's a bigger update than the xx series. Found that update kinda disappointing.

Re: Ultimate Drop Shot set up

Conquest rods are overrated and overpriced. I'd go with the addermine.

Re: TD-Z 103,105, stock controls swept handle

Therefore defeating the purpose of a swept handle..
We really over think these things sometimes. :lol:

Hawgtech handles fit the stock dragstar, there's a spacer that fits between the handle & star

Re: Bearings have me Perplexed

I was wondering the same thing..
If they've got a polymer cage, the acetone can react with it, melting the surface making it sticky.
That'd explain what's happening here. Otherwise.. No clue.

Re: Compile-X baitcaster

I've used mine for that a couple times.. It's got a lifetime warranty so why not. Wasn't a very good frog rod tho, tip is a little too stuff for my taste.

Re: 7.1 or 7.3 ft rod for hollow bodied frogs

The longer rods will cast a little farther and will move more line on a hook set..

Can't imagine there will be a huge difference between a 7'1 and a 7'4 assuming same power and taper.

Not certain but it looks that way.
I picked a new one up recently for a little over $250.
Hell of a deal on a sweet reel.

Take the BFS bearings out of it, and put the stocks back in and see if that helps some. Otherwise, you are trying to mod a reel for casting performance that you cant control. Before receiving the HedgeHog bearings, the stock ones is what i used. Generally speaking, it was about the same. mag dial a...
