Re: Daiwa FuegoA 2500 Spinning Reel?

The lever to allow you to back reel can get dirty and cause problems. The mechanism on it is a little small in my opinion. Put a few drops of oil in it if you are too lazy to take it apart. This may help. The anti-reverse bearing can cause the same issues. Both are easy fixes.

Re: It's Been a Minute

That Personal Order is a timeless color. The SV103 color isn't too much different. They both look solid.

Re: BE PREPARED

Yes, as you said you sank too much money into that combo, and yes Bon Scott rocks. You have to laugh at all of the money we spend on customization. It will be worth it in the long run. Hopefully that combo will become as legendary as Bonn once you have won a few tournaments and/or caught a few big ...

Re: Point Blank PB701MHF vs G Loomis MB844

They are two totally different blanks. The PB701MHF has an RDA of 525 and the Loomis 844 around 670. The PB701MHF is closer to the Loomis 843. The PB will have a thicker/stiffer butt section and a little softer mid section making it appear a little slower in action. The PB will load up much smoother...

Re: Scrimless NFC

Those introductory prices are indeed nice. That being said, I'll wait for others to take the 1st plunge. It's all subjective, and while I find that HMs to be really nice blanks, I feel the Point Blank's are on another level. NFC is going to have to wow me in a big way. If I find a blank I want, and...

Re: Big SoCal bass

Solid. I can’t tell where it is from that picture! I was at Castaic! I spent a lot of time on Castaic in the previous two decades. I still wouldn't have guessed it because it looks so dry around it. The rock that you can get to from shore on that lake it fun to fish with a crank. The riprap around ...

Re: Color selection simplified

There are so many techniques that have surfaced over the last two decades that a tournament angler often doesn't have the time and space to fill their boat full of several choices in every lure category. I primarily use the same colors as the OP out of necessity. I have three walk-in closets full of...

Re: Floro on SV spools v.s. conventional

I have even noticed it makes a pretty big difference to fill even half way with old braid. I always just filled SV spools all the way with fluoro until I recently got a scale and was shocked. A big Zillion TWS spool full of braid weighed like 27 grams, and a G1 1016 weighed like 23 grams full of fl...

Re: What do you daiwa guys use to bomb lures?

There are so many factors with braid. The suppleness of the material, whether of not it's coated, the weave style, the number of strands, and the diameter all come into play. X8 is in the middle of the pack and X4 is among the last of the bunch for casting distance among the braids that I have trie...
