Re: Gear Question

I have the 7.7 gears in my CU50E Do you feel any issues with torque? No. But then again I dont use heavy baits with my 50E, as that wasnt its designed purposes. But, I have no issues with 1/4oz weight and a plastic bait swimming/buzzing. I use more of a UV Speed worm type bait with it, or even ligh...

Re: Light braid

I buy all my braid straight from the source. Dyneema Spectra braid I can get 1000m for $20 shipped to me. I do have to wait about 3 weeks, but well worth the price. Im stocked up, so I will be good for a long time. Have been using it for a long time, and holds up well in heavy cover.

Re: Bone Stock Reels

Own lots of reels that are stock. Money is why. If I changed out parts, I would definitely keep the originals. Why? Frugal is one good reason. Pinnacle Primmus were advertised as hand tuned. Probably means they were individually checked for proper lubing. Great performance out of the box. Have a st...

Re: Quantum Icon PT

So I got the Icon PT in the mail yesterday. Took it home and pulled the sideplate off to check out the internals. Brass gears, dual supported pinion gear, brass crankshaft, dual bearing supported crankshaft, and smooth as hell. Im actually pretty impressed with this reel, especially for what I paid ...

Re: Bone Stock Reels

I have reels that I have kept stock for testing/comparison purposes. I may do some cosmetic changes on them, but nothing to enhance casting/retrieving performance. Right now I am doing a comparison of the Shimano SLX XT, Lews Tournament MB, and I have a Quantum Icon PT on the way. Most of my reel th...

Quantum Icon PT

I know there are a few members here that have them. I snagged one on a Ebay bid, and for only $44. Lol. I figured why not, since I like the Smoke Speed Freak I have. I've read some online reviews that seem to be mixed, but for what I paid, I cant complain, even if I dont like it. If you have one and...

Re: Your favorite obscure reels

Ive been really enjoying my Lews Tournament MB. Dual braking, and brass gearing. Its really smooth, and casts great. 2 pins on, and set the magnetic braking to 4, and it will sling with a flick of the wrist. Tiny like my Shimano 50E series too. I just added a carbon fiber handle that was donated by ...

Re: Switching Combos

I have an assortment of rods and reels, but usually only take 5 or 6 with me at a time when I go out. I have a few rigs that are "specialized", otherwise I grab a reel and pick a rod to pair it with depending on what my fishing is gonna be like that day.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Do the US Pros beat around the bush avoiding talking about the reel or is it random footage they just had lying around 🤷🏻‍♂️ This video was made for Japan, not the US. The American guys are just in it because of the facial recognition factor. US tourney guys are like full-on celebrities over there....
