Re: No Shimano, No Daiwa

I'd be sad, but I'd probably go with Lews. I used to own a couple back in the day and they were decent reels.

Re: Orochi XX Perfect Pitch Vs. Nrx 894

Another rod that keeps crossing my mind for your purpose is the NRX 873crr.

Re: Is it the rod or the reel?

It depends on the application. For bottom contact, I put more into the rod. For reaction baits, I put more into the reel. For finesse, I put more into the reel.

Re: First baitcaster for my dad advises

I'd say the exsence makes a great foolproof reel. I have 30lb braid on mine and my kid who doesn't fish and has never used a baitcaster was using it on vacation last summer and he actually was having fun casting it. I just increased the braking a bit and he didn't have a single backlash.

Re: Spool Questions

I use a 1016 in my steez for jerk baits and I throw everything from x rap 8's to vision 110's. If you want something more shallow then go with the sv105.

As teal said, the x7 em is one heck of a rod and more versatile too. However, good luck finding one.

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

I have one in my ito and Px type r and I've been really impressed. No issues so far, knock on wood. If they come out with a deep version for the zillion I'd be all over it, but I just don't see the practicality of a shallow finesse spool for a zillion. Hopefully they come out with something with mo...

Re: Your most versatile rod?

Megabass XX line is known for their versatile tapers. My x7 extreme mission can throw just about anything within its lure rating: jigs, t-rigs, senkos, spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, cranks, and c-rigs.

Re: Reeling Demographics... are you a righty or lefty

I'm shocked at the results as well. I wonder when the reel manufacturers will catch on.
