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.

Re: Sufix NanoBraid opinions

Thank you, I appreciate your reply. I find it interesting that it isn't made in larger diameters that would be suitable for bait casting gear.

Sufix NanoBraid opinions

Looking for opinions about Sufix NanoBraid by users... not Gliss, NanoFil or other thin diameter PE lines. Thanks

Re: Which braid for ds on spin reel?

I would think bite detection would be your #1 priority in which case NanoFil followed by fused Fireline would be my spinning lines of choice.

Re: VMC Line Tie Split Ring

I've been using the #2 pear-shaped split rings. They do appear a little slight, but I haven't lost any lures yet.

Re: 17lb NanoFil on baitcaster

Is it still working out? http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v356/aquaholik/20160113_170207_zpszuxkxkc6.jpg Quite a little dust on this thread... Eventually I lost faith in Nanofil and went back to Ultra-Cast on bait casting reels and fused Fireline on spinning reels. The line broke more often than m...

Re: Flash Pointer

The regular Pointer 100 is a rip bait, very erratic with a side to side darting action. The Flash Pointer is a little more subtle, it has more of the darting action of the Pointer but the tail kick or wobble is tighter like the Flash Minnow. Basically it is Pointer with a tighter action and less si...

Flash Pointer

In 500 words or less compare or contrast the action of a Flash Pointer 100 with an original Pointer 100. Extra points if I can understand it.

Pulls out? doesn't turn! Now I feel a little foolish, but better to ask than break it? Thanks

Lew's BB1 thumb screw question...

I just received a used BB1L and am having difficulties loosening the plastic thumb screw which holds the side plate on. My Revos have a metal thumb screw with a flat head slot. This BB1 thumb screw is plastic and has no slot. I'm looking for successful techniques loosening it. Thank you
