Re: Metanium vs Chronarch

Don't own the Chronarch MGL. yet :D Have 13, 16 mets and CI4. If for moving baits, I'd go chronarch. The metanium is what I like for bottom bouncing. I don't have an issue with the old CI4 for a lipless crank so the MGL version must be out of this world for apps like that. Yes it is. I put a CI4 on...

The MGL and 13 have different spools and frames, MGL has a bearing on the spool (pinion side) the 13 does not, therefore the spool shafts are not the same.

Makes sense to me.

Re: Curado K gears

One question. Do the 13 and MGL Mets both use the same pinion gear?

Re: Small Swimbait Rod Choice

Made my road trip to Tackle Trap, and purchased the Hyuga 72H. I think it will be perfect for it's intended use. Casts travel 2 doors down the street with 1.5 oz. Should look and perform just amazing with the new Bantam!

Thank You to the guys at Tackle Trap for your help with this decision.

It’s hard to find a shop in NE Georgia that stocks any swimbait sticks, hence the reason for this request. Tackle Trap would be the closest one, it’s abour 4 hrs away.

Re: Small Swimbait Rod Choice

How comfortable is the Hyuga’s reel seat? The MB Japan website shows minor finger placement indentions. Not as prominent as the Fuji ACS, which feels terrible to me.

Small Swimbait Rod Choice

I’m a bank fisherman just getting into swimbaits, and looking for a rod for throwing hard plastic treble hook baits from 3/4 oz. up to about 2.5 oz. Prefer lengths from 7’2 to 7’6, mod-fast, with a full cork grip if possible. Normal guides, no micros. Line will probably be 20lb Super Natural or 22lb...

Re: Any braids better than Daiwa Samurai?

I have been getting the yellow 150yd spools online at Walmart.com. Looks like I will need to go to Maxima's website to purchase the 300's.

TSI 321 Questions

Much has been written about using the TSI 321 product on spool bearings, but I still have these questions. Do you notice more noise when casting compared to oiled bearings? How often go you need to re-apply? Can you re-apply 321 using a needle oiler with the bearings installed, or do you remove/clea...
