Re: Chap stick on your line for Knots.

I believe it offers benefit sub freeze, high wind, or if I want to really take my time cinching down. Less is More.

Re: Marking gears during service

Mesh characteristic, be it due to random wear or manufacture discrpency, is in effect a weak spot. Putting back the same puts stress back the same, if a tooth is gonna fail this is where it likely happens. Rotating would redistribute the stress.

Re: Trout Lures

Of course… they’re predators too you know. Realize they’ll target smaller prey relative to body size and stick to shiners. Gold, Silver, Metallics and such often your best bet.

Re: Braid for deep diving cranks

I also switched. Thin diameter equates to less water lift, coupled with distance requirement to work properly, braid helps dredging deep. I’m getting an extra couple feet as result. Usually. But hookup can be tricky, I’ve had regrettable moments. Shock leader helps, though sacrifices some depth adva...

Re: $200 reel vs $400 reel

... and resale value. I'd venture most two bill options won't fetch much used on open market. I'm not going into tolerance, durability, performance, but fact is less high end options are available. Both now and later.

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...
