Re: **First go a brisket on the weber**

That looks great! I have a little Weber bullet and do a lot of pork and chicken, but brisket intimidates the hell out of me. Question, does using "the snake" damage the finish on the outside of the grill? I tried a similar idea in a cheaper grill and the heat directly on the side walls bub...

Re: Something new for this year ...

I have modified all of my small (1/4oz and under) hard baits to single hooks. I also use the Owner Cultivas when possible. I do leave barbs on some of them (mostly the topwater/shallow ones) and crimp the barbs on the deeper running ones. I find while I do feel bumps I can't connect with, I am also ...

Re: Quick review Kuying Teton 6-0 ULS Trout rod

I have a Trapara UL and a Go Emotion ML. The Trapara is a noodle but I knew that going into it, though it does amaze me how bad it is with plastics whenever I try it. The Go Emotion is a bit stiffer, but when I flex it alongside a Phenix Recon in a similar rating it seems softer even though it is a ...

Re: Casting Rods... What will you spend?

I have been "seriously" bass fishing for maybe 2 seasons now and just sprung for my first nice rod, an Orochi XX. Before that my most expensive have been a pair of IMXs I got when American Legacy was blowing them out. I only bought the megabass after a ton of reading and asking a ton of qu...

Re: Concept Z bearings

I have a Concept A I use on a travel rod I take hiking and on work trips. I am very interested in the Z bearings if they really will remove a point of failure from a reel that has a pretty tough life.

Re: Quick review Kuying Teton 6-0 ULS Trout rod

I yearn for a STC-63UL with every fiber of my being, but there isnt enough fiber to get me to spend $300 on a used rod. I think I am going to have to look to getting a custom to find the BFS rod of my dreams. Look into Major Craft, there are plenty of BFS Corzzas and Go Emotions around at under 120...

Re: Shorter rods and kayak fishing

I also fish out of a Propel 10 and even a 5'6" perch rod lets me get a fish over the bow if I lean forward just a little. My kayak rods for bass range from 6' to 6'8", but what they all have in common is short butt sections. The two spinning rods are customs from Smallie Stix out of Reddin...

Re: Rods and reels getting wet?

I fish a good bit of brackish water out of my kayak and I have just come to terms with my gear all getting a little wet and salty. What I do is keep a 5g jug of water (the kind with a spigot) in my car and give everything a rinse as soon as I land. The other month I saw a guy do the same, but with a...

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

While I have a few reels over the $200 mark, I have been on a an older Daiwa buying kick of late. I picked up an Alphas Finesse Custom for like $115 shipped and honestly like it more than the $200 NIB SV105s I got earlier in the year. Same thing with a used PX68 I got for just under $200. I think I ...

Re: Suggestions for case to protect one piece rods

Smead seems to have come up with the better options. The only thing I can add is I've shipped many rods using this pre slit foam pipe insulation around the blanks before final packaging to keep them from rattling around within the shipping container. It's easily available, cheap and virtually weigh...

Re: Quick review Kuying Teton 6-0 ULS Trout rod

I have a Teton UL casting rod as well and am also liking it. http://i.imgur.com/Dy1i7pKl.jpg It balances well with a PX68 and with 4lb mono, it will cast a 1/16oz inline spinner further than my thumb can control it. Stepping up to 6lb mono and a 1/8oz inline, I can zip them as far as my 7' UL spinni...
