Re: TT Reels Shootout - Getting Complacent?

Hell, I should hope so... This is what they do and feel free to count me among those who value their insight. I've been reading TT reviews for the last half decade, or more, and this forum, but new to registered postings such as this. I've read every review, many several times over, and find they re...

Re: Copoly v Flouro: Sensitivity

My bad, I guess. I meant 'lure contact' as simply feeling the presentation. It had nothing to do with tight line pendulums.

Peace all.

Re: Copoly v Flouro: Sensitivity

Fluorocarbon rarely ties a good knot and typically costs more. That's about it. I once got pissed watching a $30 lure sail beautifully with no chance to get it back. Again. The only Fluoro I trust now is Tatsu. Period. It is costly so I use it on only one setup, Certate2510PE-H. Yes, I like it bett...

Re: Best Spinning Reel Brand For Fluorocarbon ?

How heavy are you guys going on a 2500 or 3000. I pretty much fish straight braid, or sometimes a fluoro leader, but this spring I may spool up a real wth straight fluoro to try spybaiting. 2500 maximum of 10 lb (.260mm) 3000 maximum of 12 lb (.285mm) This diameter would represent true line test. A...

Re: F5.5 Diablo Fastmove - How heavy can you comfortably go?

I agree the 1.5 oz limit seems accurate for consistent usage and, yes, you can whip 1 oz. In fact, I did so just today a couple hundred times. It is comfortable in that range, but I would not yank THAT hard with much more. Personally, I triple shank most of my lures and may have been in the 1.1 oz r...

Re: Help needed ryoga with fx68 spool

HIGHLY doubt it. Two totally different platforms. I suggest you email the vendor and ask. If they don't know, do business with someone else. Good luck.

Re: How common is crooked NRX recoil guides?

My thought is that if the guide foot is parallel to the blank (the guide itself being twisted, not the guide mount ) then I wouldn't worry about it. What I see won't impact casting ability. However, if the guide foot is NOT parallel to the blank then I would send it back. This could present a reliab...

Re: How common is crooked NRX recoil guides?

This is why the last Loomis I purchased was back in 2006. Bummer. Picture or no picture, your best bet is to cast the thing and find out. If it's off alignment enough to be an issue you will know. If forced to choose by virtue of percentage accuracy, I'd hazard that if it's within 80% proper alignme...

Re: Auction Site Gem only $3k+

Purple happens to be my favorite color, but 4k is insane. I don't care how much scratch you've got, that's simply too much. For the uninitiated, anodizing is relatively inexpensive. Hard to say an actual cost, as it depends on total number of parts/choice of color/depth of color/masking difficulty/p...

Re: Need an all around Megabass crank rod

Bass1980 The x4 Destruction WILL cast 3/8oz, but that is the absolute lower limit. As far as cranking goes, it's harsh beyond about 10 ft depth. It'll wear you out, but casts like a demon. I also have a Diablo Fastmove and find it outstanding for cranks. I routinely dredge with it and it's got power...
