crappie magnet for trout

Does anyone use crappie magnets for stream trout? I want to use a BFS combo but I'm not sure I'll be able to cast trout magnets. I'm more confident I'll be able to cast the 1/16 oz crappie magnets though.

Re: ultra light casting rod?

Would the Teton 662L be a good all-around choice for hard and soft baits? Will I be able to cast trout magnets with my pixy/diy spool?

ultra light casting rod?

This is a new world to me, but I do have some BFS reels and rods. I want to get into stream trout fishing with the occasional lake pan fishing. My reel for the time being would be a pixy with diy spool. Lures would trout magnet, inline spinners, micro cranks, beetle spins, etc. Probably in the 2-5 g...

Re: Want to buy one super high end rod - which one should it be?

The last time Kistler ran this promotion I bought a 7'3" lexf5 zbone, helium3 ml/xf spinning rod and klx feel n reel rod. All for 3 rods for $499 (50% off). Awesome deal! I see a lot of the z bones out of stock, so as said you should call them.

Re: TDZ / TDX is there a better platform

Upgrade the handle, throw in some carbontex, take your pick of spools and it's still one of my favorite platforms. And if your a lefty you can speed it up to a versatile 7.1. My favorite do it all spool is the og gigas r+. The only downside is the finish. I'm still looking for a mint one. I still th...

Next question, there is another screw that's hard to get ro where the pawn cap blocks it enough to make it a funny angle so please enlighten me. Last question, can I replace the stripped screw with something f...

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

I tested my new diy long cast in my og steez and I'm really happy with it. I wanted to use my steez for some power finesse techniques. The stock spool was too wild and the sv1000 seemed too choked off. For $50 the diy spools really impress me. I was throwing Ned rigs about 30 yards with amazing con...

Does anyone own or know the difference between the 2000h and jdm versions? Is it just the spool or are there other differences?

Re: 853 or 854? Finesse Jigs.

I use my 852c for finesse jigs for smallies in open water. Between the 853 and 854, the 853 for sure. I don't own either, but do have the 893 which is supposedly more powerful than the 853.
