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: 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.

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...

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
