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...

Re: Shimano Vanquish - mini review

Just dawned on me it might be a good idea to tie your line off on a tree/fence post/car bumper/wife and wind with multiple drag settings, getting closer and closer to max drag, to break that thing in while you're at it. This will also create the retrieve load you seek. Get into it and warm it up a b...

Re: Shimano Vanquish - mini review

westcoastangler In my experience with Shimano, the clicking 'thump' you feel, getting greater with increased load being key, is a big blob of grease on a gear. It will deteriorate over time as the grease thins and the gears hone themselves. If your Vanquish has a maintenance oil port, put a couple 3...

Re: Quietest braid

You guys need to try the new Maxima. It's as quiet as it gets. Really. The line is a thinner diameter than most and also heat fixed. It does not bleed, not even a little, and has been durable for me (I've not yet tried the HV). Sheer volume of sales around the world appear to allow for tighter profi...

Re: favorite florocarbon leader

Hmmm.... My take on this topic is that knot strength is paramount. To that end, I'd take Tatsu any day.

Re: Fish both left and right handed baitcasters?

Left hand only for me. I learned to fish as a youngster with a spinner and stuck with it exclusively until low profile casters became available lefty. It has now been upward of 40 years and I see no reason to change.

Re: SPIING GEAR

I'd suggest a 2014 Daiwa X-Fire 3012H. I purchased this reel as soon as it was available. First time out I went to show it off to a buddy who commandeered it and wouldn't give it back. So now I DON'T have this reel, since I sold it to him, but it would be perfect for your application. He chucks 30lb...

Not my style and I refuse to do it. I let them bed in peace and I'm delighted when others do the same.

Re: FPI Flourocarbon tests

You are looking in the right place. We've all been waiting. I figure the shootout must include many a brand, as it should, and I'm sure it will be worth the wait. I hope.

Re: Guides and performance

I'm a little late on this post, but have recently upgraged my walleye rods for when I move back home to Washing State next Spring and went Loomis GLX with recoils. I hate the look and noise of recoils, but decided I wanted the best stock species specific (non-custom) graphite, plus it matches my ot...
