Re: 16 Aldebaran BFS w/ Conquest BFS micro gears

Did the swap just now on my Aldebaran 31MGL. Changed to Conquest BFS HG gears.
As expected, right after the change, smooth.
Will report back in a few months to see if it holds up...
Keeping my expectations low haha.

Re: 21' Calcutta Conquest 100 vs 200

The top of the spool does.
They've gone to a smaller diameter spool, i assume to get better start up.

Re: Zillion SV TW Problem... Solved???

I don't have a solution, but just to say I had a random tick in the newest Morethan as well.
Sometimes there's a tick in the retrieve, sometimes not.
Disengage/engage a few times, and it would either disappear/reappear.

Re: Megabass rods keep breaking while casting

Just checked, they’re in much deeper, the part that touches is around the 3rd eye from the reel. Curious why you asked? You think of that was the area that was touching it could have caused an issue? Yeah, just seeing if the breakages are random or 'systematic'. Depends how well the rods/reels are ...

Where along the blank did all these breakages happening?
First one was between the 2nd and 3rd eye and the other 3 were between the 3rd and 4th eye.
Does that location correspond with how the rods are stored/ etc.?

Re: Daiwa Certate not casting far

I didn't think the spools were that diff in diameter, maybe 2 mm or something?

Is the braid on both spools worn in the same?

Re: Would you be interested in reel with DC brakes if they didn't "whine"?

I thought the whine was cool when i first got the OG exsence DC, and probably fine around other gear enthusiasts. But at other times, ie most of the time, the whine is like normal whining... annoying.

Don't plan to get another dc with the whine.

Re: Why do we care about guide insert?

Would rather take titanium frame alconite say on a steez xt vs stainless frame SiC for bass applications, esp on a spin rod

Re: 21 Antares DC Main Gear

My thought is that the smoothness of micro module gears doesn't last long when the frame and bearings can't hold a tight enough tolerance. Like too much play. Surprised it's an issue for the antares though.

Re: Unsanded blank finish... hmmm

Yeah ok. Feel like if I'm bombing heavy things, not an isaue. But light lures on a windy day with micro guides, with more line slap potential, not sure. No way to know for sure.
