Re: 1-3g hard baits

Funny you mentioned those old Yo-Zuri baits with the articulated tails. The Wally Worlds in my region all have Yo-Zuri/Duel dump boxes on the bottom shelf. They're a mixture of salt & fresh water baits. I've been grabbing these when I can find them (selection varies by store, never know what you'll...

All great lures, back in the days.

A vitamin bottle - re-purpose for carrying spools...tacky but gets the job done.

Re: Baitcaster Braid Weight?

Diawa J-braid 15# braid on the Bantam MGL casts further and with less effort than 20# braid on the Chronarch MGL.
I'm still running 15# Fireline braid on my Metanium MG7.

Most of my lures are 1/4 oz lures...

Re: Round vs Flat braid list

Typically most four carrier braids will flatten out easy. Braids will flatten out due to compression and also pull tension.

Does the fused carrier have memory, like a monofilament or fluorocarbon line?
Line memory yes.

Like mono or flouro...no. Fused superline has very little spring resistance memory. 1/32 oz can easily pull line pretty much straight on the retrieve.

Re: Jbraid grand issues

I have noted that JBraid Grand is softer then J-Braid and easier to separate the braids when pinching a small section and pushing it together.

Re: So... Fireline

The line will ribbon out after some use or it will ribbon out if a lot of pull pressure in applied. Other than that It's very hard to feather thumb the spool with that stuff. I can't tell.

Re: Casting + Internal Damage

If the clutch was disengaged/reengaged during the cast/crank, then it's more than likely the pinion gear set grinding trying to mesh. There maybe some teeth damage from the main gear and pinion gear set.

Re: BFS and PowerPro

At times manufacture label diameter doesn't mean much...when taking two lines from two different brands.

The one listed at .008 mm is sometimes thicker than the one listed at .012 mm. You can feel it and even just eyeball them side by side and notice it.
