Re: Backing rule of thumb?

The math is pretty easy to figure out if you know the diameter of your line and how much your spool holds. Daiwa provides this on the box. You can multiply the diameter of line by the manufacturers suggested line capacity to get the volume of your spool. I fish a lot of Sniper. I generally use 66 y...

One of my team partners is a friend of Jeremy. I'll see what he knows.

Re: Show off your stuff

St. Croix LEC68MXF and tuned Daiwa Sol: I had two Sol's when they first came out. I wish that I had kept them because there is so many more spool options today. My SV105 paint isn't as cool as the orange. That pearl orange color is being reintroduced on muscle cars, bicycles, and everywhere, making...

Re: SV103H with upgrades

As was said, the Zaion drag star is nice looking on that reel. They weigh next to nothing also. They don't get much love on here unfortunately.

Re: crappie magnet for trout

I haven't used the heavier crappie magnets, only the lighter trout magnets and crappie jigs on spinning tackle. The crappie magnets should cast better on BFS than the trout magnets, as you suggested, and be easier to fish in deeper water and more current. I would think that they would work well. The...

Re: Is 1/8th ounce considered bfs?

I've been a big fan of trout fishing with baitcasters....every since the presso and pixy. But with everything else it seems a name is given to something :) wasn't sure if that weight categorizeds as part of the bfs "denotation" Mainly because I built a rod out of corner molding zip ties a...

Re: Is 1/8th ounce considered bfs?

Punish? I don't know about that. With the right reel and rod it's an absolute blast casting lures under 1/4. I don't think that you read my entire post. You will see that I like and use BFS quite often. I agree that BFS is fun in my post. Casting lures under 1/4 oz. on casting tackle is difficult f...

Re: G. Loomis 843C MBR or 844c MBR for jigs

I like heavy hooks on almost all of my jigs. The 844 is a better choice for anything with a heavier hook. The 843 seems a little light for anything over 3/8 oz with a heavy hook.

Re: TDZ / TDX is there a better platform

TD-Zs are more versatile than Alphas but I can't get over the geary retrieve of mag reels and TD-Z is no exception. For that reason alone I'd rather have an SV103 or Alphas. Not knocking the TD-Z by any means. For the record my TD-Z is smoother than my SS SV, IS73 and Steez LTD but not as smooth as...

Re: Is 1/8th ounce considered bfs?

1/8 and below is for my spinning rods :) I hear you. Most people aren't going to punish themselves by fishing baitcasting tackle with anything under 1/4 oz. I usually fish my spinning tackle for bottom contacts baits under 3/16 oz because it is easier to open your bail and not have to feather your ...

Re: Is 1/8th ounce considered bfs?

As has been said, it was hard to cast anything under 1/4 ounce with most of the average rods and reels in the early days of bass fishing. In the 80's, I struggled to cast 1/8 oz bullet weights with small (4 inches or less) handpours that were considered the early finesse softbaits of the day. I've a...
