Re: Need Help, New Spinning Reel

They have the 6.2 ratio USDM models as well. Don't look at just gear ratio but IPT which will account for spool size. Spinning reels have a higher IPT reel due the larger spool. A 5.2 ratio spinning reel can match the IPT of a 7:1+ ratio baitcaster.

Re: BFS Casting Reel

You’ll like the aldebaran. A great caster out of the box, I added the extra magnets that it comes with for a little more control especially in wind. HH air bfs bearings wake up the stock spool and avail, Ktf and now roro make ultra lightweight spools for the reel if you feel the urge to cast under 1g.

Re: BFS Rod Recommendation

If you are after the type of rod that will cast the smallest of lures then the true bfs rods will probably be too much rod. The light and UL powered bfs sticks I've used are in their happy zone in the 2-5g range, with some a bit higher than that. I have a 6'5" UL major craft days bfs rod with my ald...

For the Edge rods only the Silver Widow line uses the x-ray blanks.

Re: 18 Aldebaran 30 MGL (JDM)

They also have a magnetic brake conversion you can use with the avail spools. Its fully adjustable with the stock brake dial and you can add or remove magnets as well.

Re: Daiwa T3 SV 8.1 gear sets?

I’ve never had the t3 Sv but I’ve swapped the 8.1 USDM ballistic gears into a few jdm t3 1016s and t3 mx. The 1016s required me to remove the pinion gear spacers but once done they fit perfectly.

Re: Calcutta 50XT BFS Spool

Wow, I just looked at ebay and that's insane! I bought one of the avail spools back when they were still able to be had new for around 80 bucks, and I sold the complete reel with spool for around $160-170 a couple years later. Upgrading the bearings on the stock spool helped my casting capabilities ...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

To those who had a chance to fish this reel for some time now, what's you overall opinion, is it worth it?

Re: New 2020 Shimano Metanium

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OUZZtg45pI0 Is it just me or does the 100 sized conquest look bigger than a regular 100 sized conquest? I've noticed that Japanese tend to have small hands, so I think that's why all the reels look large in the videos. Even the Curado 70 looked huge in those Japanese...
