Re: Daiwa and T-Wings ...

I'm with written thus far, including negative, but side toward acceptance. Overall, after getting used to it, I like it. While I don't consider it must have, benefit to larger diameter is undeniable in my mind. To which, I consider 'larger' over true break 12 or 50 braid. That's my user threshold. A...

Re: Bearing test

Forgive me, I mean no offense, but what is the point? No bearing will get too hot to touch during normal usage and pushing that hard could lead to early failure. Of which, testing to point of failure proves little with respect to in use performance.

Or am I missing something?

Re: St. Croix joins the long rod bandwagon

Far as I figure, if such a setup was so beneficial, than many would already be using them. What a pro does or does not do in competition has little impact with regard to general angling masses. I can see the market, I can see the sales, but I also see it being quite limited. Just my thoughts... :whi...

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.
