This thing. The Teton is a fun stick and the Black Max 3 with its strong magnets and large range on the mag dial means that I can dial in the 10 gram Momo spool easily all the way down to controlled casting of 1/32 oz baits.

I still use this one. The Haibo Smart 50 casts 1/8 to 1/4 oz as well as a Pixy Airy Red and that crummy little Cherrywood HD has a nice taper that loads well with 1/4 total weight for such a short rod. I like it so much I'm putting together a high end combo similar to it.

I also have a 7'H Power Wall BPS Extreme that has a soft tip and a good back bone that it like a cheap, slightly slower, Orochi xx PP in taper. It was my go to frog rod before I got the PP. I still use the rod as Heavy moving bait stick.

I have the old black and orange Daiwa Black Widow II 2000 spinning reel that I love. Smooth and consistent. I never see this model for sale on any auction or fishing sites. I came with extra free spools instead of one so I also lucked out on that.

Dirt cheap gear hands down Shakespeare brand, Uglystik, Alpha, Dimensions, Sigma, ... Use them until they break down in performance.
slip bobbing is the laziest way to fish

Bass Pro Shops Stacey King 7' med.lite cranking rod. I bought three on sale for $79 years ago, and they are still kicking and sticking!

Remember the US Reels? The ones with the huge spools? I have three of them, use them all the time.

I also have an old BPS line picker, the one with the yellow plastic handle, and a stout tempered wire with a sharp point at 90 degrees.
It makes short work of "professional overruns".

Many thanks.....i never knew such a thing existed....

I don't have any depth perception so rigging rods is always a challenge, even at home.

I hope that it makes my life easier.

The older Cabela's Prodigy reels, baitcasting and spinning. Made by Daiwa.

Got a lot of miles on them.

TW, Bass Pro, and Cabelas don’t carry them. Would appreciate advice on web stores.

Thanks

Buy a pack of these, pinch a lead bullet weight on the two tag ends and, presto, you have a shload of line threaders, for $4.
They are great for threading line through the reel's line guide, too.

Fred I responded to your PM yesterday. I don't know if your PM inbox is full.

Several places sell the Fuji speed threader. I think I bought it at the Rod Room.
You can also purchase it at Jann's Netcraft or Mudhole
