Re: Megabass spinner baits:

I pretty much use the Megabass Bullet spinnerbaits exclusively. I feel like the titanium wire emits more vibration, the downside is it becomes extremely weak after long use, so much so that I’ve broken them when they hit rocks up shallow. I cleaned out Jun at one time of the Kobuna. I’ve had my best...

Re: Antaras AR opionons

Have to agree with everything said about the Antares AR. I have 2 of them and probably a dozen or so Calais 100A's. Great reels! Something about the metal bodied reels from Shimano, no other reels IMO are as buttery smooth, even the TD-Z Custom and TD A.o.i. reels I have, although lighter do not see...

Hey Joe (this is Alain), what exactly is the difference between the Mag V and Mag Z?

Re: Ginrin Peche/Zillion return follow up...

I was just handed another reel from Ginrinpeche that I purchased on the 10th... So far so good for me too.

Re: alphas's

Thanks for the input Chuck. I’m more of a Shimano fan than Daiwa and the majority of my gear consists of Calais’ Calais DC’s and Calcutta DC’s which I think tend to require less babying due to the hard metal finishes, but they all still get covered when not in my hands or being used. I’m n...

Re: alphas's

Thanks Joe. So any opinions on which would be better for throwing small splitshot style plastics between the Alphas F and the original Alphas? I like the coolness factor of the color on the original Alphas but the F model is lighter and more bearings. Soliciting any opinions from experience or any e...

Re: alphas's

Another question regarding the Alphas, do the CRBB's cost more? The reason I ask is, GINRIN has the Alphas F for $10USD less than the original Alphas (purple version). I would've thought the 2 additional bearings would cost more.

Re: Daiwa Ito Ai Japan tackle 2 in stock

Wellllllllllllll, call it serendipity... :D I sent a mesage to Jun inquiring about the TD A.o.i before I realized that this message was for the Ito Ai, and lo and behold he did have one. I'm sure it'll take a while to get here with the Christmas holiday in full swing and most delivery services at ma...

Re: Daiwa Ito Ai Japan tackle 2 in stock

Thanks Cal, I guess I'm slower than I thought (mentally). I should learn to read as I thought this was for the A.o.i. reel, the black and metallic blue version :oops: .

Re: Conquest 50 or 100 for soft plastics?

Not sure about the comparison between the Conquest 50 and the Conquest 100, but I ordered and received my Conquest 50 this past weekend. I have it matched to a Daiko Burroughs BRSC-64L. I threw split shot Fluttercrafts yesterday with no problems. I have it spooled with 6lb INVIZX. Very nice combo.
