Re: New Poison Adrena

Got to cast and play with it today at Joe's in MN and man what a rod. Had the 73MH paired with a Curado DC to play around with outside and man it absolutely bombed casts. Definitely feels better than the previous generation by a mile. Any one who doesn't like the ci4 reel seat will probably be both...

Re: SV Light Limited

SS Airy hollow poor man's Steez fanatic here. Was never bothered by the feel of my SS SV reels, hence added an SS Air w/ Alphas air spool, and the SV Light to the arsenal. I do wish the SV Light came w/ Bass or Die knobs out of the box. Gorgeous. I need to get a light box. Which levelwind cap is th...

Re: SV Light Limited

From all the 32mm spools, I prefer the SS Light Limited the best. I'm probably the odd ball here, but I didn't like the reel as much as I wanted to. Though not as bad, it still has that somewhat hollow and toyish feel that the SS SV has. The paint wasn't all that great either. Just my 2 cents. I ke...

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

Jerkbait fishing is so much about so many things, other than the bait itself. Try a Jackall Squad Minnow 80. It's smaller than what you've been using, but it's what works best for me when I don't want to put a whole lot of thought into working the bait.

Re: High end JDM rod recommendations

Raid is another outside the box option. Unfortunately, a lot of the outside the norm rods can be difficult to source.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

So I got the 19 Millionaire CT SV, which was eagerly awaited. First impressions in the yard is “meh”. Quite unimposing simple cosmetics by Daiwa standard, which I like to some extent. Square-ish appearence from above/below. Cast control knob is silvery with a cheap-ish look, no clicks. Star drag cl...

Re: Translation of Shimano Japan lure symbols

I've found Jdm Shimano rods to be so multi capable, I don't even pay attention to those symbols. As long as my intended techniques fall within the blank specs.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

30 mm BFS spool from KTF: It might be that, because obviously there's thousands of people that want buy that lightest lure capable(?) BFS spool and maybe those was not made many thousands. Now I can understand why somebody was selling used KTF spool in Ebay for $350. Obviously people are thinking e...

Re: So... Fireline

No, it's just always been wild. The spool in mine is super fast, tuned more for bombing football jigs than skipping senkos. All I've ever used is 10# Invizx on it, and while that line isn't exactly what I'd call unruly, I'm thinking braid would be more forgiving on it. I don't know about this stuff...

Re: So... Fireline

SV105 wild? I can't stand Fireline. Not the original stuff anyways. I've never had a line dig into itself like this stuff. And when it digs, it DIGS. I use to run 10-20 lb various braids all the time. Never ever had a problem. Fireline always managed to kink up... Imagine using an extremely thin aud...

Re: ICAST 2019

Not a clue. Seems to have been pretty quiet, so I'm expecting a fairly unexciting Icast this year.
