Re: crankin reel

I had trouble with that 4.9:1 left lexa twice. Before it messed up, it was great, but a tatula is worth the extra $40.

Re: crankin reel

People say it doesn't, I think it does, especially on an easy roll cast. They are tough reels, too, so I think they're great for cranking. The 6.3 or 7.3 would suit the task well. If you reel righty, there's the low gear model to consider, but I don't feel like there's much utility outside of cranki...

Re: Best $300ish baitcaster for skipping jigs around docks

Cracker is on point imo. Mag brakes (esp Daiwa) is the way to go. Personally I use t3 1016's. Love them and think they're very underrated but everyone knows how fantastic the 1016 spool is. Ive yet to try an sv reel but I'd really like to give the alphas a shot. That said I did recently buy a 13 Fi...

Re: Daiwa SV105HSL or Steez SV103XSL?

Does the sv105 have the non-disengaging levelwind like its alphas twin? Does that mean that the level tracks back and forth only when drag is being pulled or during a cast as well? Doesn't this hurt casting distance/light bait casting? Not in the market,y next will most likely be a Steez sv 8.1, ju...

Re: How did my last cast go, you ask...?

Lol, holy crap, that's gnarly! That's the beauty of an sv spool. If the Senko flies off, it shoots off into the water, presumably to be inhaled by the fattest pig in the lake, the jig head winds up somewhere behind you, and the spool barely backlashes.

Re: Shimano Aldebaran 51HG or Daiwa Tatula HLC 7.3L

Yeah, the hlc is for swimbaits and deep cranks, things like that. It has a stationary inductor for minimal brake interference. Not a good idea with 1/4 oz baits.

Re: Daiwa SS SV-- in-and-out handle play?

While we're on the subject, does anyone know if a tatula drag star will mount right up to these with the stock handle? I'd like a longer one so I can twitch shakey heads one handed, but I don't want a longer handle.

Re: Daiwa SS SV-- in-and-out handle play?

Mine has the small amount that most of them do. Nothing you'd normally notice. Could be that whoever swapped the handle installed the spring washers in wrong. Turn them around to where they are opposing each other and that should eat up that play and improve your drag pressure. He may have lost a wa...

Re: SV 103?

They are supposed to be released sometime in August. I hope they moved it up, I was told they weren't being released until January. Hey, Bronzefly, when you get the scoop let us know! I'm debating the SS air 8.1 or the aforementioned 103....the air doesn't seem to be too versatile though. I have th...

Re: SV103 Spool or 1016 spool

You won't need an sv spool for that. The 1016 is great for flipping duty and runs cheaper. If you were trying to pitch Ned rigs or something, it'd be a different story, but for what you're talking about, any difference in performance would be negligible. I flip just fine with my tatula type r and n...

Re: SV103 Spool or 1016 spool

I have a t3 with an sv1000 shallow and HHS ceramic air bearings that use for BFS but would have no qualms whatsoever about spooling it up with 65 # braid and pitching 1 oz jigs into a brush pile. It's perfectly suited for either task. They're awesome. "super versatile" is no joke. But for ...

Re: Shipping rod material poll

I will say that Shimreels' novel approach to tape the rod in its packaging to a shower rod and put that in a triangular box seems to work just fine, but I'd definitely feel safer with PVC à la Plat.

Re: Help with BFS rod

Your length requirement is a bit limiting for such a rod. If you're willing to go 6'6"-6'9" I'd say an MS-X or MS-X limited BFS would suit your needs perfectly. The volkeys are nice, too, but obviously a step down in terms of weight and balance.
