Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

I have the MX, regular, and the Ballistic and I have to say that I like the MX the most. My MX BFS setup with a DIY spool is great. Especially because the prices went down so much for the T3 platform. The Ballistic is really a POS compared to the other T3's.

Re: 13 Fishing Concept Z

I honestly think it is a marketing gimmick. From how far bearing have come there is no reason to switch to bushings at all. I'm sure it will sell though because a lot of people will be lured in with the whole zero bearing thing. Although I am crossing my fingers of the possibility that this reel may...

Midwest Finesse Jig Heads

Does anyone have the Do-It mold for this? Also is there a demand for these jig heads if nobody is selling them? If I cant find a more cost efficient jig head I may just end up buying a mold and making it myself, but I want to sell some so I can break even.

Re: Does anyone put wax on their reels?

Hmm this is really interesting. I would definitely put some on my rods just to at least make them easier to clean. Pond fishing setups would really benefit from this too as I always set them down on the ground.

Re: Is it Daiwa, Shimano, or someone else?

I used to be a hardcore daiwa fanboy but after opening up my brother's 13 Met. I am seriously considering switching. I still love the connected feel of my daiwas but shimano's engineering for their reels is extremely impressive.

Frame Bearings

What do you guys use to lubricate frame bearings? Oil? Grease? Both?

BFS Braid

Do you guys use backing when using braid for BFS setups? I feel that the backing will take a lot of the spool capacity away. I know I read somewhere that a specific knot with braid will keep it from slipping but I can't find it anywhere.

StarTzar : Feedback Request Topic

I had a recent bad experience with this seller. He ignored messages and denied that his description of the reel was wrong. I bought a MINT reel from him and I got a used reel with scratches. Buyer BEWARE.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

I just got mine in today. It came with the purple air bearings installed. I never seen or used a BFS spool but my first impressions are that it looks extremely well built. The spool tips are a but dull though so I would recommend polishing them.

Bearing Quality

What ABEC rating is typical for the main shaft bearing and the level wind bearings?
