So I see that the crucial swimbait rods are on sale...

Are they being phased out and replaced by a split grip version?

Re: Help Me Smooth out My drag

Take it apart and clean it, then re lube the washers, lightly sand out any corrosion on the drag washer plates or main gear. While you have it apart you may as well add a carbontex drag to it, probably only about 10-15 bucks ;)

Re: throwing spinnerbaits with a curado 50?

I use mine for spinnerbaits about half the time, depends on if I want to go slow or fast. It works fine, I am using 12 lb line. The other half I use the 200 or my calcutta te 100gt

Re: So I just decked out an ambassadeur - I like it!

Will the record spool fit right in? I had thought of that but for some reason I was thinking the spool had a bearing fitted to it on the record. I'll look into it. Do you know how much one would cost me?

Thanks!

Re: Bantam- Crucial rod question ??

Thanks for the input, I would only use it for trolling for stripers once in a blue moon. I guess I will have to find a shop and get my hands on one to know for sure.

Thanks again,

Bantam- Crucial rod question ??

Ok, so I am looking at the crucial line, I am comparing the 7'11' med hvy x fast flipping stick to the 7'11' med hvy x fast swimbait rod. How similar is the action on these two rods? Is the swimbait rod more of a parabolic rod? I want a longer rod but perfer not to have the split grip for the partic...
