Re: Now that time has passed, opinions on recoil guides

Everyone has opinions/preferences on sensitivity... But there's no way a metal ring coated in ceramic transmits vibrations better than bare metal. Imagine for instance a gong and how it transmits vibrations. Now imagine putting a thick ceramic cover on the gong and beating it, the result would be m...

Re: NRX refresh ?

Honest question here, but those of you that like and dislike some of the NRX features, why not just go the custom route? I had a full line of NRX rods about 2 years ago. I loved the sensitivity on them, but hated the split grips. Hated the recoil guides. Hated the horrible balance. I'm sorry, but i...

Re: Shimano Scorpion 70 XG

I have ch50e, scorp 1000xt and 70. To me there is not much difference between them in casting to be honest. Scorpion 70 is more smooth on retrieve and overall has tighter tolerances.Nice aluminum drag star as well ) I wish spool was a little lighter on 70.

GLX 854 vs 844

For 1/4 to 5/8 plus plastic trigs, would 854 have any advantages over 844 ? It suppose to be the intended purpose of 854 is int it? I am considering adding 2016 glx 854 to my existing old MBR 844 glx.

Re: When to use Sunline Sniper vs. Shooter

Matthew, to make it even more confusing, if you have not heard about it, there is now Sunline Shooter Sniper. I bought some in 7# but I haven't used it enough to see if I like it better than the regular Sniper FC. To clarify, my comments were about this new line from Sunline , not the original Shoo...

Re: When to use Sunline Sniper vs. Shooter

I use it, but on bait casters only, 14-16 lb, just received 12 lb invisible. Like it a lot, it feels little less stiff compared to Shooter and very smooth line. You are correct, it is a bit thicker and I can't really advice on spinning reel, I would guess it should be just fine.

Re: New vs. Old conquests

there are few videos showing new ones being noisy during casting because of SVS braking system.
Is it more of an exception and can be fixed by lubrication or all of them making this humming noise?
SVS was seem to be redesigned in 2016 shimano reels and my Scorpion nice and quite.
