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...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Im officially putting the Helium 3 in as overrated. Not as light as people make it out to be. Balance is not that good. The rod I have the first guide is not aligned correctly thats noticeable. There are 2 other guides that if being nitpicky could be better aligned. Glad I didnt pay full price and i...

Re: Longer ML spinning rod

Hi everyone I'm looking for suggestions on truly ml spinning rod. Currently I'm using Conquest 902 for my finesse fishing. It's nice for 1/8 shaky head + worm, jigs etc, but can't go lower with good distance. Looking for rod more than 7'. Is 7'6" Steez ags m/ml good for lighter applications? Other ...

Re: Rod Balance

IDK but some of my lightest rods are my best balancing rods so Ill take both light and balanced. If had to choose Id pick lighter like sub 3.5oz rod weight for a rod 7' with medium heavy power.

Re: Tatula CT/SV bearing retainer

If you have it smooshed against the bearing, there is a possibility. Try taking it out and flattening it, and try it out again. More than likely a bad bearing though. That's my thought. Try greasing the spool shaft ends before you do anything else. Thanks will try grease first Grease didnt work :( ...
