Pixy 68 spool removal?

Bought a Pixy 68l (my only Daiwa) this last winter and had it professionally serviced as soon as I received it, so now is the first time I want to be "under the hood" to lubricate the spool bearings. I removed the three side-plate screws on the handle side and expected to be able to lift the side pl...

Re: rod grip shortening opinions requested...

The subject of “rod grip shortening opinions requested” leads some, myself included, down a path that I don’t think you were really intending to go.  I felt your goal was to shorten your rod grip.  In reality, your goal is for a more ergonomic grip for yourself. My original thought was as presented...

Re: rod grip shortening opinions requested...

I was looking to provide a more natural hand spread when casting, which was about 2" - 3" above the butt cork on bare blank on this particular rod. I didn't like the grip on the bare blank so was contemplating shortening the rod and move the cork butt 2" - 3" closer to the reel stem. After discussio...

Re: rod grip shortening opinions requested...

Thank you for your insight Matt. After conversation with others I'm leaning more strongly to leaving the grip length as is and building up the bare rod blank with cork tape, then covering the cork tape with a shrink covering available from Mudhole. This will minimize the balance change and, hopefull...

rod grip shortening opinions requested...

I have shortened several full cork rod grips, but this current rod presents a unique (to me) challenge. I want to shorten the grip of a split grip spinning rod by the length of the butt cork. I'm contemplating cutting the blank where the butt cork begins, sanding the outside of the blank above the c...

Re: Rigging Grubs

it also gives a clean flow of water to the tail--no hook eye, knot, or hook to create "turbulence" so I think the tail is slightly more free to move. ](*,) You're trying way too hard...

Re: NEW RAPALA SHADOW RAP

Does the deep version of the Shadow Rap have as much action as the shallow running version? Has one been a "better" bait than the other?

Re: New Revo's

As Tavery5 indicated, they can be greased, but are sold dry and work very well that way. If you want to improve the drag, polish the metal washers.
