I am looking for (6) new Shimano Aldebarans. I believe Tackle Trap doesn't sell Shimano anymore (I maybe wrong). Where are some good places with good prices? If you want to PM me that would be fine as well. Thanks in advance
I would find the place that would make the easiest return/refunds :lol:

Re: Tulala blanks?

Suprising to see that Tulala showed up at ICast..granted with what might have been the most skeletal booth in the history of the show. Wish the team at TT could have replaced the Plano Edge coverage with a page dedicated to a very interesting JDM brand that appears want to make an introduction to th...

Re: Daiwa asc spools now for sale

I'm sure this is posted somewhere, but what does this spool weigh? Also, what is going on the the bearing/bearing houseing? Never seen one like that on a Daiwa spool.

I see 3 NIB 50DC's at a shop, but they are retail. All right hand. Around $465 with the going yen rate. You say these are worth owning?

Re: 8ft. Rod for Fishing Flairhawks and Swimtails up to 4 oz.

Could only find that rod in Asia. Are you familiar with the Megabass Black Jack? Tackle Trap has the TS711X at 20% off... I wouldnt suggest a rod with a bunch of anodized aluminum bits and pieces if your fishing saltwater. Both of those rods have as much style as they do substance. Think more Mike ...

Re: Lure & Boat Back Lash?

I ordered a rod from them last week and received one confirmation email outlining how extra costs might be incurred with an oversized item, duties, etc. I asked them them to give me a cost on this. That was early last week. After sending 3 more emails I still get no response. Is this typical for th...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Admira Baitcaster

No mention of any type of mag braking though. If it's CT spool + sideplate compatible... You never know on those transitioned jiggin reels. Daiwa probobly went to as few lengths as possible to modify that reel. Meaning, they probobly just took out the interals on the sideplate. You might be able to...

Re: Wacky hook size for 5" Senko?

Haven't fished a senko wacky rigged since I first started using them 15+ years ago and we just used regular ewg worm hooks back then. Now every technique has a fancy hook. What size are you all using for your wacky rigged 5" senkos? 1/0 seems about right? (see picture)..Here is another option for y...

At 135 grams, I don't think it has magnets. I think it is a jigging reel, like the Daiwa Kohga TW. It goes to show you that Daiwa is not going to be shy to use this platform for future reels.

Nice find Polkfish!

Re: Ned head shattered my Expride...

If it makes you feel better..I've bore the brunt of bad fishing juju. Fishing out of my flats boat, alone, I managed to get a big Zara Spook stuck in a mangrove, instead of taking the easy route and just going to retrieve it, I did the dummy and yanked the bejusus out of it. Sure enough it dislodged...

Re: Ned head shattered my Expride...

Was bank fishing tonight and got a 1/6oz mushroom head stuck in a nearby tree. I tried to gently rip it free a few times and that didn't work, so I grabbed the rod a bit further up and gave it one good rip. The head came free and, as chance would have it, flew right back at the rod, hit the blank, ...

Good news is, the KTF 30mm spool for Alphas/Millionare works amazing in the Steez CT SV and might be the preffered choice if your planning on swinging middle weight lures. (5-12 grams)...

Re: Need new casting reel within a month, what to do?

What do I do? Just buy another SLX and wait to see what ICAST holds? Considering I probably won't get any newly announced reels in time, I might as well buy a reel now and get some use out of it right? I just want something new and shiny and another SLX isn't any fun! But the SLX MGL is JDM only, t...
