Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

THANKS everyone for the most interesting discussions. I really have to get back to work.... :lol: Allsorts, may I ask why you picked a tubular over a solid tip? Your model offers both. The solid tip is a touch ligher in weight. What are the advantages and applications of tubular versus solid tip? An...

Re: Shimano Soare BB Ajing S610LS

Great to hear your feedback. And that's not even a 'ultra' high-end JDM rod. I do think that it is possible that eventually, the JDM rods will force US manufacturers to change how they make their rods. The stuff that Alphahawk and others are getting are about 20% lighter. (Weight to power ratio is o...

Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

I thought I posted this yesterday but do not see it - so hope this is not a double post. Alphahawk & Allsorts, and others who have high end JDM UL rods, I am curious as to the distribution between guides. How many of your rods use the single post Fuji T-ATSG or T-ATTG guides, and how many use th...

Re: Bubble fishing for trout

The Trout Magnet people have been huge proponents of this type of fishing.

Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

Yes, the Iron Feather has an extremely soft solid carbon fiber tip indeed. I'm surprised at how wide a lure and line range they advertise. At the higher end of the line/lure range, I assume that the tip is no longer really operational when controlling lures etc as it offers very limited resistance a...

Re: Educate me on high end JDM UL.

Really curious to see if they can make a rod that soft with extreme sensitivity. Regards Those sound like contradictory terms when considering rod building. Regarding sensitivity, I think that there are different types of sensitivity and thus, the confusion. For example, some watch a very soft tip ...

Re: Tict Ice Cube.....ester mono....equal crappie.

Hey Alphahawk,

If you could keep just ONE of your JDM rods, which would it be and why?

And if the TICT Drift and Finesse were the same cost, which would you pick based on performance for your needs?

Figure I'll ask you here and not start a new thread.

Thanks.

Re: Tict Ice Cube.....ester mono....equal crappie.

Thanks. Just super. THanks for being so generous with your expertise.

The ones in the photo you posted - are those 0.5g or 1.5g? Wanting to get a sense of the SIZE of the head in relation to the weight. I assume the heavier the jighead, the larger the head?

Thanks.

Re: Tict Ice Cube.....ester mono....equal crappie.

Alphahawk, Are those jigheads that you have 0.5 or 1.0 grams? (or some such other weight?) And roughly, can you estimate how many more hookups you get with these compared to the Trout Magnet jigheads? Lets say you get 100 on the Daiwa, how many will you get with the TM heads? Thanks again! The JDM m...

How large is your average fish? Presumably trout?

Re: High end trout specific rods

3/16, 10 lbs braid. Seems like you may do better with L rather than UL rods? normally trout rods are UL but your type of fishing may land fish more efficiently (defined by landing fish with highest % success per hour of time invested and in the shortest fight time possible to land) by using L blanks...
