Re: Gear ratio: 8 VS 7?

I always say use whats more comfortable to you. As for ratio, IPT should be what you are looking at. One reels 6 speed may just be as fast as anothers 7 speed, and on and on. So, there are the people that prefer fast or slow reels for certain applications. If Im swimming baits, I prefer something a...

Re: Tacklewarehouse - Why not to Preorder...

From my experience and I have a lot of them, when you order they will send you everything that is in stock and then send you your back ordered items once they all arrive. If something on the back ordered list comes in but not all you can get it but you have to pay shipping for each shipment if you e...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

Not to change the subject, but maybe you should try a shallow spool or a reel capable of casting light baits.

Re: Daiwa spool tension problem

IF that's your issue, yes it's fixable if you know what you're doing. You'll need to take the spool apart to repair it. If you aren't comfortable doing that, just send it to The tackle trap or ian shields to repair it. It's a very "easy" fix but it's a bit precise if that makes sense. You don't rea...

Re: Daiwa spool tension problem

Open up the side plate and see if you can rotate the inductor on the spool by hand. If you can, that's your problem. I had this happen on an old TDZ100m spool once. Would do the same thing that's happening to you. No idea how the inductor didn't just come off and get stuck in the magnets on the sid...

The reel is on the boat and won’t be able to check it till Saturday, but what hold the inductor for moving. I am no reel technician. Thanks for the help.

Re: Do Expride rods have a high rate of breakage?

I’ve had a first generation 6’6 medium for 3 years that I use for jerkbaits and topwater’s with no issues at all. Actually one of my favorite rods. Can’t speak on the new gen
