Re: New spool for zillion crazy cranker for light baits?

There are maybe a few spools for the zillion. I've had a pe hlc spool but thought it was a bit wild. This was paired with a ml 7ft rod. OThers may have better input as I stopped using it when it didn't suit my reel needs. There's the ize hlc or tdz 100m that I've only used for swimbaits. Great for b...

Re: Great reels no one talks about?

My first baitcast was the citica e. Great reel out the box and was able to get it at a going out price of $56 at academy. Loved it so much I went to search for the curado e at local academys and was able to get one for $80. Had it good back then. Although they were in the shadows with a little tunin...

Re: Got my new BFS combo today!

Nice. Have the same rod on an 09 aldebaran with spool. Wait til you see how small of a bait you can cast on the bfs setups. The only thing I would suggest is to routinely maintain the spool area. I usually do the quick dry qtip clean where the spool edges sit and then add one drop of oil on new qtip...

Re: Good swimbait rod?

Reel can be a factor as well. I know you said 711 tops but whats 1 more inch. Current setup is dobyns 807 with calcutta te can cast a 5in bullshad to og deps 250. You can also do it on a 908. Rods may feel too stiff for some for the smaller baits but works fine for me

Re: Upgrade Mgx or buy JDM BFS?

Forgive me I am getting a little confused. Is a alderbaran with a after market spool better than the 15 bfs alderbaran. Or can you get a aftermarket spool for the 15 bfs limited. Sorry to confuse I only mentioned those options as a cheaper alternative that would work at a fairly good price. However...

Re: Upgrade Mgx or buy JDM BFS?

Id say get one suited for with a spool. Have a zillion with pe spool and it didn't perform what I wanted. Changed to a 09 aldebaran with avail spool and it worked nicely. Alot of the older reels such as the curado/chronarch (scorpion) 50e and even some 09 aldebaran 50 can be found at good prices. Wi...

Re: Dobyns Fury

I think you might want to ask them to make it a casting version. If I remember correctly the sf usually is for spinning rod. I could be wrong. Hope that helps

Re: Swimbait reel

400te. Didn't think I would like it at first but was corrected as soon as I used. Love it and the disengaged levelwind makes casting distance easy. Add some abec stainless steel bearings and you'll be in for surprise.
