Re: Rod sensitivity subjective?

In defense of TT, how many would buy a stick because it is .0001% more sensitive'? What about balance (a personal peeve), build quality, performance, comfort, reliability, availability, cost, warranty? I'd venture most consider such more important.

Re: reel problems

Sorry about your troubles, spin. The shop will take care of you I'm sure, at a minimum store credit towards another item I imagine. Ideally you'll be able to replicate problem in hand, sounds as if that may not happen, hence credit scenario outlined above. Don't sweat it. No sales pitch here, but co...

x3. It's simple, clean, quick, reliable, though I probably spool only 3-4ft total. Works like a champ.

I believe Oleg is asking if the off balance handle created will engage spool upon cast. I'm curious as well and looking forward to future video. Good stuff.

Re: Now that time has passed, opinions on recoil guides

Hmm... Well, allow me to slow pace and point obvious in that recoil concept clearly has advantage and disadvantage. I think we can all agree they are nothing alike. On a side note, I'd like to thank OP for such an entertaining thread. Nothing like whacking a hornets nest with a big stick!!

Re: Now that time has passed, opinions on recoil guides

I have owned but just one assembly to feature them and found no benefit at all. I didn't care for the sound or look of them. As posted above, maybe I can see it with a spinner but I'll never try. And I love spinners. No offense to personal preference and best wishes.

Yes I have. Wicked looking color, beyond that stiff and coarse. It'll rattle your teeth. Probably great cutting through kelp, it's designed for salt anyway as I recall. My sense was that of quality, but I didn't run it long.

Re: Overlap?

Welcome aboard. Just came across this thread, oddly amused no response given all the BFS mania around here... Don't take this the wrong way, anyone please, but I kind of figure the whole concept a little silly. I can see being with it full tilt, I honestly can, but just don't get concept of benefit ...

Re: ygk gsoul 112

Recently messed with 20lb on 2500 spinner. The 'sinking' part is what drew me. It doesn't sink. Frankly, I wasn't impressed. No idea durability, no idea comparative strength, too coarse and loud for my taste. Far from the worst but not what I prefer. The water was too stained to see depth of bow but...
