Re: 2018 shimano leaks

So what's the difference between the 2018 300/400 conquest vs the 2015?

Re: What up with the ugly rods?

People like what they like. Personally, I like the St. Croix Legend series rods. Color, handle, and all. All I own are Legend Torunaments and Avids. Both great looking, top quality rods. I’ll pull the trigger on a couple of Legend Elites in the near future. And they’re made in the USA. To each his ...

Re: Curado K gears

Are there any left hand gearsets available yet? I looked at shimano's website, but there was no option to get any parts for the curado k. I called Shimano and ordered #5727 drive gear, #5649 drag washer, #5651 drag washer. I would also order a new pinion gear, the pinion gear needs to be a Metanium...

Re: Curado K gears

Best upgrade going for the 13 Met. Transformed mine to the point where its smoothness matches the Conquest 100HG. Why do reel companies persist with alloy gears? The weight saving is peanuts in my book. Agreed, mine has a HH swept carbon handle, HH air beaings and yumeya shallow spool, this was the...

Phenix Bass Recon?

What do you guys think about these rods?

I'm looking at the 7'6" light for ned rigs

Right now I'm using the Dobyns DX742SF and it works fine, but a buddy of mine has been wanting to buy it for around
$200
Whats the better build and blank out of the DX and recon?

Thoughts and other options....

Yes my apologies. I was referencing the set we sell, as it comes with the Metanium pinion. I do apologize for the confusion.


It only cost me $12 extra :doh:

Re: Curado K gears

I just got my order from Shimano to do a Curado K gear swap to my Metanium 13 I checked my Metanium 13 spool and my MGL spool. What I found out is the pinion gear from the Curado K will not work, the spool does not fit with this pinion gear. I ended up using the pinion gear that was in the reel. If ...

What up with the ugly rods?

Been eyeing a lot of rods lately but have noticed so many with just plain ugly handles and blanks. One that comes to mind is Favorite fishing, man these are some UGLY looking rods. One other thing I can't stand is something super patriotic that is made in china. So glad to have Gloomis and Megabass ...

Re: Polarized Sunglasses for low light conditions

I use some safety glasses off amazon at $10 for my low light glasses. They have yellow lens. Couple of reasons. 1- Never fish or boat without something to protect your eyes. Bugs at low light, topwater lures flying back at you. 2- In low light, I can't see in the water no matter what and my eyes do...
