Re: "Mag" BFS Casting Rod Input

I haven't tried one, but you might want to check out on of the "old" Daiwa Airedge 662LB (BAIT FINESSE VERSATILE). The lure rating is 1/16 to 3/8 oz, which is a lighter lure rating than my Pixy rod. It's a two piece rod, which allows it to be shipped overseas for a cheap price. You may be able to fi...

Re: Daiwa Presso AGS 62ML-B

It's a fun little rod. Tested it out for an hour with a Presso reel, Rayz spool & 6 lb Senshi. I just need some more time on the water with it.

Re: Lucky Craft Disease

I must have it. Every year, it becomes more difficult to find my favorite color pointer. I've hoarded every last one I could find. I really wish Lucky Craft would sell direct to the customer on-line. Most of the US vendors only sell the larger sized pointers. Check out ebay seller "i love hardbait....

Re: Dedicated lighter plastics bfs setup

Nice setup. I've also been eyeing that rod for a while. Could you please share a picture of the rod loaded? I really want to see the taper of the rod.

Re: Skipping with BFS Reels

My PX-R skips all day with 10lb flouro, 1/16oz shakey head jig and trick worm. x2 I always take my PX68 when I'm river fishing on my buddies jet boat. It can easily pitch skip a tube into cover all day. At least for me, the PX-R / PX68 skips better than my other Pixies or Aldebaran variants. I have...

Re: Daiwa Presso AGS 62ML-B

Thanks Jrob for the pics and video. That sealed the deal for me, and I placed an order with Christopher @ finesse-fishing.com. It looks like they have a few in stock. Let me know if you would like me to post your pictures on this thread. Have you been able to fish the new rod yet? Unfortunately, I ...

Re: 16 Alde BFS vs 15 Alde BFS Limited

On the 16 how do you guys feel about the drag and line capacity- I have three of the ald 50hg's and have been thinking about a bfs. My 16 Alde BFS drag seems weaker than the 15 Alde BFS Limited. I want to look into upgrading the drag. Like others have mentioned, the 15 Limited needs more adjustment...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Just broke in the Pixy spool with three brown trout. There's improved casting distance compared to the presso spool. Was even able to cast a TD minnow 1060sp a good distance. Now, I need to upgrade the bearing on the spool. http://i204.photobucket.com/albums/bb33/goldschlager2940/Mobile%20Uploads/IM...
