Re: Baitcasting Reel: Single knob handle instead of double?

So little to do with the actual reel, but when traveling around and holding a bunch of rods in one hand just to set them down in the corner here and there. When you go to grab the rod you want and find that the handles are tangling upon themselves on reels and lines. That is to say there's a slight ...

Re: Issues with Tackle Warehouse

It's good to hear that's been resolved.

I myself personally avoid anything back ordered...from anyone, not just Tackle Warehouse. As it sometimes just get majorly backed up. :big grin:

Re: Color braid?

I prefer dark red, dark green, and fluorescent blue, green and yellow as well. What brand line is that fluorescent blue ? Oh you would ask that! Man I have no idea really. I work for a rod and reel repair shop and we get sent all kinds of stuff from manufacturers wanting our approval or reviews on ...

Re: Daiwa J Braid Grand 8,15,20, 30lbs ABS and Knot Breaking Strength Tests

Again, thanks for testing. I got some in the mail a few months ago and when I compared against the standard J Braid. I pinched and push the line together to see how easily the strands will compressed and separate from it's weave. It seems that J Braid Grand separates much easier than J Braid. These ...

Re: Bubble fishing for trout

I know you said bubble, but one thing I used was a clear spook puppy. There are times that trouts will spit the fly/lure out before I get a hook set. With the spook puppy, it was a much more smoother take. On top of that, the casting distance was better than a standard bubble/bobber. I still use bu...

Re: High quality slip floats

Casting distances, nothing beats a floating spook type of pure. Better than any float.

Re: What's next for Shimano???

I wish they would have the optional cover for that dial. Less chance for other debris to get and collect in them. Even if it's fish slime.

Re: Good crappie rod?

I typically wouldn't mind the 1000 size reels. If bobber fishing, I step up to next size up reels, maybe even 4000 size if needing to bomb a big bobber. Smaller waters, easily a 6' rod or shorter anywhere from UL to ML in power. Longer casting 7' rods or longer. Sometimes I only need a 2' bobber dro...
