Re: Shimano reel names

Literally this is the worst name ever assigned to a shimano reel. I seriously doubt I’ll buy one. Mainly because I have the fl stradics and don’t need one. But honestly I think I would actually pass on this reel because of the name. Guy in other boat: “Hey, what ya fishing with over there?” Me: A va...

Re: Scratched up my Bantam, what can I do?

If I scratch a reel I sell it at a considerable discounted price and re buy the reel. One way to look at it- would u pay $25 or even $50 not to have the scratches on it? I had a new conquest 100hg fresh from japan- dropped it and put two very tiny blemishes on it- I couldn’t live with it so I showed...

Re: Bantam MGL sensitive to spool filling?

I find that the bantam and most Shimano reels will perform best with the following the line capacity maxed out (not overfilled) 2-3 brakes Spool tension just enough to keep the spool from having play side to side And finally a tiny drop of reel x on each end of the spool tip and where the brakes con...

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

Abu, Lews, most bps reels,browning and some others are all made by pure fishing which are all copies of each other anyway. Most have interchangeable parts and I have to work on quite a few. (High school fishing team) Usually when I open one up and show a customer all the plastic for the thumb actuat...

Re: 2019 Shimano reels -

I agree. I wish they would at least do a dc reel in a 70 size. That would be sweet. I feel like the dc would shine with a jerkbait, however the reels they offer it in are what i would consider big for throwing a jerkbait. I like the ald 50.

Re: Should I get 872s or 902s NRX

Yes, and the same can be done on float n fly rods. I'm not saying it's ineffective. I'm just saying it is a very soft rod. I like a rod that stays stiff when i try to move the bait. I can just feel the bottom better. Its all personal preference. I was just trying to give the op some insight. When i ...
