Got my Xray blanks.. Weights

So my bro has a food scale and I decided to take some weights of the two xray blanks I ordered. When I took the weights I realized the way the scale presents the weight doesn't help much so... I'm looking for one on amazon so I can get more accurate weights. So far the blanks feel pretty darn nice a...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

Did anyone get to handle the new SLX? If I'm not mistaken it's to replace the caenan/casitas? I very much happen to like my casitas MGL. I'm interested in the new slx because its' reported to be small than the caenan/casitas and uses the old vbs brakes? Just wondering if it's similar in size to the ...

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Just handled one at the ICAST On the Water demonstration. It is pretty much a Steez A in shape and size. Couldn't open the sideplate as they had them cinched down too tight for me to turn. We'll have more details in our coverage, but part of the reason why they were able to bring the price down is ...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

Also saw 13's new Envy rods. 46T graphite and Fuji SS Sic guides. http://www.13fishing.com/envy-black/ Wow I hope they are good. Price seems kinda high. I have two and think I paid less that $200 for them. Really thought the last generation were great values. The increased cost to me and components...

Re: Envy?

Hm, not sure how I feel about these.

I think the old ones were ~$250? For that price they were a screaming deal IMO. For 300-350... I'll just keep making customs probably. Although I've always really liked their casting seats.

Re: Airrus Rods Info

Back when I was trying to get ahold of them, it was basically one guy in NA that you had to deal with. Good luck.

Re: Scrimless NFC

Those introductory prices are indeed nice. That being said, I'll wait for others to take the 1st plunge. It's all subjective, and while I find that HMs to be really nice blanks, I feel the Point Blank's are on another level. NFC is going to have to wow me in a big way. If I find a blank I want, and...

Re: Scrimless NFC

I ordered two. I called and spoke to someone, and they said these blanks are an improved version of the HM blanks. At this price I figured why not. I'm curious about the weights though. On the phone they said they were still adding info but it doesn't look like it has been added. I bought the MB736 ...

Do they offer multiple sizes like the fuji ecs for direct on blank placement? I keep going back to fuji and alps because of that :-)

Re: Lamiglas Infinity bass blanks

I can only offer anecdotal, as I have a rod built by lamiglas.

It's a spinning rod, I haven't fished it much to be honest. I'm going to try and get out saturday and give it a go, will report back.

Sorry if this has been answered, but are the trick shop spools compatible with this platform?

Re: Lamiglas

I have one of their finished infinity rods and like it a bit. The blanks seem to be a great value. I'll have to give them a try.
