Re: Casting braid

4 carrier is good for frogging because it cuts (saws) through vegetation (and your fingers) easier.

Re: New Tatula 150

The reason it feels rough when the spool is removed is that the spool shaft isn't there to keep the pinion aligned. Stop that.

Re: Quantum reels

Because Quantum is a made is China brand. I don’t mind made in China as long as it’s priced accordingly. I like my Quantums just fine since I only buy them when they go on clearance for half price. Tackletour caters more towards the JDM and enthusiast level crowd. It amazes me to see the amount of ...

Re: Flick Shake 9.8"

Yeah, they're fat. At least as fat as a 5" senko. Just think ENORMOUS flick shake. They look like the same proportions as the other sizes.

Re: Affordable bfs rods???

Yeah, major craft are nice, but good luck finding one @ $120. Maybe used if you're lucky. I got mine for $150 shipped from Shimreels and I'm certainly not letting it go anytime soon.

Re: Ten Dollar Rod Travel Tube

Yeah, that's awesome. I put together some catfish rod holders with PVC pipe, an end cap, some garden hose, and angle iron. No kickbass paint job, though. I put a cardboard tube inside my Airliner rod carrier to make it more rigid because the first time I strapped it to the roof it bent about 1/3rd o...

Re: Affordable bfs rods???

You should strongly consider the Tatula 6101MXB. It has a solid tip that will sling light stuff with ease Damn, I thought I had heard that and had one in my cart during the last ebay 20% deal but I couldn't find the posts again and though I was remembering wrong. Yeah, that sale started just in tim...

Re: Affordable bfs rods???

What's affordable to you? $50, $100, $150??? Like 120 tops. At this moment is all I can afford. You should strongly consider the Tatula 6101MXB. It has a solid tip that will sling light stuff with ease, but a stiff medium backbone for hook setting and fish control. It's great for finesse jigs, fine...

Re: New Loomis GLX rods creak when you shake them?

My Tatula flipping rod did that at first, but none of the others did. Other than being better suited for frogging, the rod seems fine to me.
