Re: 2016 daiwa certate 2510 vs twin power 3000 xd

I have both reels and would lean towards the Certate. If you want more power, go with the 2510RPE, the "R" means 3000 size body and 2500 size spool and rotor. You really can't go wrong with either, but the characteristics you asked for is closer towards the Certate.

Re: Super finesse Dropshot Rods

I'm with you, the Stinger Shot is way too much rod for this specific application in my hands. Some of my nice panfish rods from the past Kirisame series, maybe even the X7 Parry Arc would be fantastic. That 2016 Ambitious is still a top contender in my mind however... I was actually thinking of the...

Re: Super finesse Dropshot Rods

I don't know about the Stinger Shot, it is a Medium power afterall. I would try to stick with an F0-F1 if i was you or something in the light power department. I personally use a light powered Kaleido rod for the 4lb dropshot setup for the past 6 years and still haven't found anything better.

Re: What’s your Finesse spinning rod?

Evergreen Kaleido Designo Mach 1 is my favorite finesse spin rod. 6'3", Light, Fast, 1/64-1/8, 2-6 lbs line rating. I usually spool it with 4lb Abrazx or Shooter. The biggest fight was an 18 lb carp foul hooked on the dorsal fin :doh:

Re: Spinning reels

It is really all a preference since i own both brands. I own a Stella, Exist, Certate, Vanquish, and Twin Power. I can go with one or the other and it doesn't really matter for me, they are both great brands. Only thing weird is that Shimano has the "C" variants that are compact body with over sized...

Re: Is there a better choice for me then sunline natural

I use regular Defier, Evergreen HD, Toray Polyamide and Super Natural. If the Defier and Toray is too pricey for you, i think the Evergreen HD is a good alternative because they handle, perform and last just almost the same. I still use a lot of the Super Natural for reels that plans to get respoole...

Re: Japan style trout spoons

I have over $250 of spoons from troutshop.jp and have tried many different brands. If i could only choose one then the Penta would be my choice. I actually caught my personal best walleye on it. From my experience, they work best with slow roll, flutter, slow roll, flutter technique and most of the ...

Re: Favorite plastics for jika rig

Owner Yuki Bug is the best in my opinion. I am glad i bought over 60 packs on the bugs alone in the clearance on Tacklewarehouse. Not sharing :talk hand:

Re: single hooks on cranks

I have also converted 3/4 of my lures to singles. I pretty much only throw trebles when fishing open water or right at the beginning of season where vegetation is still limited. I use mostly the Owners and some Decoy for barbless. The only sucky thing is that my EG hunchback crankbaits have the bell...

Re: Any disadvantages to O rings?

Just screw the CPS till it is no longer visible and just skin hook about 1/16 of the plastic right through the eye of the CPS. This one is nose hooked, but you can do it in the middle if you want, just match the worm thickness with the size of the CPS. I use it when i nose hook my dropshot lures too...

Re: Which size Stella

They aren't too much different in weight and size, but just speed. I would go with the HG since you can just reel slower if you think its too fast. Its harder to go the other way around.

Re: New Chatterbait

Decoy released a new quick snap last year and they are much better than the Egg ones. The strength of both ends of the snap is the same.
