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

Thanks for the heads up on the Pixy spool. Just ordered the black spool, off AliExpress, for my Presso. If the spool holds up, I'll probably order a couple more for my red Pixy & PX68.

Here goes another 4 week delivery.

Re: MAJOR CRAFT BENEYRO

For that price, you'll love it.

Several years ago, I had the 68ML. Great components, but I didn't care for the RF action.

Re: Alphas AIR + super trickster maiden voyage

Thanks for the detailed review! Love the Alphas platform, just not sure if I want to purchase the Alphas Air or the Aldebaran BFS XG.

OE - Here's what I posted on RS.com back on 2/11/15.

"What if a LC Pointer had a three way with a LC Flashminnow and a MB 110? With that love triangle a new family of jerkbaits was born. Behold, the Flash Pointer. Ba da ba ba ba, I'm ghetto'n it."

Re: Which Aldebaran for BFS?

The paint on the palm plate of my limited isn't holding up. Not sure if it wasn't cured right or if it had a bad chemical reaction with a sunscreen I used. The rest of the reel looks perfect.

Re: New river 2015

Excellent choice in tackle and rivers! I absolutely love fishing the New River.

Spot on review of the Aldebaran bfs xg limited. How many brakes do you typically have on?

Re: 2015 Aldebaran BFS XG LTD

You can use braided line on the BFS model. All Shimano reels are approved for use with braided line. We do own a little company called Power Pro. I'm sure you have heard of them. 10 pound is perfect. Plus with the reduced weight of braided line it makes for a lighter spool weight overall. Sweet! Th...

Re: The PX68's magforce Z, stronger drag, and the ability to

Good stuff. Thank you. The PX68's magforce Z, stronger drag, and the ability to use braid makes it a great BFS bass reel. Are you saying that you can't use 10lb braid with the Alde LTD? If so I had missed that. Sorry for the delay. I had an extended weekend of fishing & golfing. Shimano only states...

Re: New Tube Rod for River Smallies and OccassionalLM

At one time, my buddy had four G Loomis SMR 882S-SP Bronzeback rods. It seemed like a great tube rod for river smallies. He would only fish with a 1/16 to 1/4 tubes. I would also check out the Dobyns DX742SF or Legend Elite LES76MF / LES76MLXF. Currently, I'm using a Dobyns DX702 casting rod, with b...

Re: 2015 Aldebaran BFS XG LTD

The Alde LTD casts lighter lures farther and easier than my presso, airy red pixy and/or PX68. When the wind picks up, the Diawa reels are much more manageable. Fishing from a SOT kayak, with open scrupper holes, I get paranoid opening up the Shimano to adjust the brakes. Unlike the standard Aldebar...

Re: 7'6" IMX Spinning Rod + 4000 Stradic = Freshwater SHARK

Couldn't agree with you more. That looks like a blast. Seems like I always have a salmon fishing buddy arguing with me that bass fishing is boring and salmon fishing is more challenging and fun. How fun is it dragging a fish behind the boat with a bunch of weighted lead core or a flopping dipsy dive...
