I bought one last spring and it was by far my most used rod this year, it's so so nice.

Re: Steez CT SV TW

Don't forget, the SV spools are designed to be filled only halfway for BFS, to make the spool lighter and more capable with light lines and lures. I have tried to do this a few times and my thumb/brain cannot handle it. Just that 1/8" or so of empty space throws me off. I am cranky they didn't...

Re: What rod for someone who MAYBE wants to try BFS?

OP, if you are within a reasonable drive to central MD I have a few of the entry level rods mentioned here that I would love to sell, but none them are worth enough for me to ship and make any money on.

Re: Sunline Defier

Armilo is such a great line, I have been using the 11lb for a year or so on a topwater rod and liked it so much I tried in on a GP rod in place of 12lb Invizx and was really surprised at how well it compared in terms of felt stretch and sensitivity. It drives me crazy it's not available in bulk spoo...

Re: Lightest backing line

Using heavy braid to take up the unneeded capacity does save weight. It doesn't require much at all. With all the emphasis we put on getting the lightest possible spools it seems like a no brainer. On the other hand, it does leave you with a rather sizable leader knot that creates a noticeable bump...

The man clearly said that the brown acid is not specifically too good, I don't know what more warning you needed.

Re: Jerkbait rod

GLX 843 mbr My former GLX MBR 783 I had 3” taken off the butt because at the time I like rods shorter than 6-6 (I’m 5-10) but recently broke the tip on a smallie outing, so I started using a 6-6 and I’m perfectly fine with that now. I love the GLX 783 for Vision 110+1’s and Lucky Craft’s deeper mod...

Re: Premium Collapsible/Telescopic Rods?!

A couple of Youtube angling personalities vouch for the Daiwa B.B.B. I've never handled or owned one, but I've been wanting to get the 595TLFS for remote backcountry trout fishing. Discontinued JDM Daiwa telescopic Heartland models show up on Yahoo Japan's auction site occasionally, and look intrig...

Re: TD-Z Owners Guild

After talking with Pikeroadbassin I’ve decided one will get the PG spool and the other the M. That’s a start for now. I always have a end goal in mind on the purpose of the reel For now one is Texas rigs and the other topwater. I have a TD-Z with a PG spool in it and really really like it. The reel...

Re: Daiwa Spool Case

I looked for them a year or so ago on AliExpress and didnt find much. That style of plastic screw case is also used to store expensive drillbits and such, so an industrial supply house might be a place to look. Other online have suggested using old pill bottles.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

Ive only used the Gen1 Orochi XX Tour Versatile. I thought it was a little too stiff to be "versatile" if your are using FC, you may be able to swing it. I was using braid and thought it would handle spinnerbaits and chatterbaits along with small swimbait and frog duties. Jigs and frogs i...

Re: Jerkbait rod

I use a St. Croix Avid 6'2" M/XF (AVC62MXF) for all my jerkin', poppin', and walkin' lures. It's also great for smaller plastics as well, it's one of my go-to rods for hike-in fishing as it's so short and light. I would never call any rod a "joy" to hike with the but the AVC62 is abou...
