Re: 2019 Z Bone vs. Conquest

HA fanboys at BBC went Ape$heet cause I ragged on the quality of the H3. My rather new (april this year) lightly used rod has the cork pitting already more than rods that are 4-5+ years old with way more use, I dont use sealer on any of them. This on top of the other subpar craftsmanship issues.

Re: Alphas sv105

I have an alphas sv105 and I just can't seem to get it to cast well . I always read about how good they are which is why I bought one from Japan (used but looks basically new). I have read about the inductor sticking in some of them and some people changing the spring to a heavier spring so maybe t...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

I have been using the 1/2oz size for over a month now and overall its been a very good lure. Yeah the eyes fell off pretty much on the first use and the hook needed sharpening but a fish attractor it is. Durability on the body is excellent as well its getting some tears now that I fixed with mend-it...

Re: Braided Samurai vs Power Pro SS8 vs Sufix 832

Old thread, but I just picked up some Samurai 40# braid on sale and was going to try it.. now I'm not so sure. I typically use Sufix 832 30# and haven't had any issues. Any recent feedback/results on Samurai? I had bad luck in the area of wind knots with 40# Samurai basically ruined the whole spool...

Re: Looking for small casting reel suggestions

What about the Curado 70? It's been around for ages (and should be relatively cheap now) and honestly I can't fault it yet... Not sure why it's dropped off the face of the planet online talk wise but its quiet a capable little reel for its form and build. I'm using mine for BFS casting 4g down to 1...

Re: SV Spool Inductor

Which SV spools are prone to be stuck? Never had any issues with Zillion or Steez G1 spools. My SV105P spool had the stuck inductor even put in the white ramp still just not right. Blow ups for no apparent reason ruining my line. Pretty much gave up on the reel hangs in the basement now replaced by...
