Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

TW says that the reel can hold 100 yards of 10 pound line . Does that seem to be accurate? Any thoughts? That's tackle warehouse propaganda, designed to hoodwink the american buyer who still believes more line=more better. 100 yards generally bieng the lowest threshold. The 100/10 contention doesnt...

Re: What’s a good rod for spinnerbaits?

Length is widely accepted to be less than 7ft. Where it begins to split is when people talk about action. Some prefer a really fast rod. Some prefer a mod-fast. Personally, I feel the rod choice should make sense with the line used. If using FC, a faster rod could be used. If braid, mod fast to help...

Re: Native trout style rod for small bass and panfish?

Those might be fine, not sure I would recommend my Smith rods for that kind of use. What length are you looking for? I think something in the 5' range would be ideal. I am wanting the easiest casting experience possible for her, so I think shorter will be better. I have been looking for a similar r...

Re: What makes braid "screech"?

Im gonna bump this. I was thinking about braid for punching. I have had sone experiences with braid digging in and have been experimenting for the past couple years. I am bumping this because: 1.

Re: Reel for cranking

I have the 2012 Antares. It gt the 5.6 gears and is made for cranking.

I put a 102mm handle and power knobs from a Shimano Stile 100XG on mine. Butter smooth, powerful and, launches crankbaits.

You should be able to find a good deal on one with the new Antares coming out.

Re: Finish on JDM Revo reel: does it hold up?

I bet LgMouthGambler would know. I know he dabbled with the JDM Revo reels.

I know overall, people have mixed opinions about the finish on the Abu Garcia reels.

Re: Rod Weights

What the hell :laugh1: I need to see that 7'11 Glass Rod on a scale, I don't see how these numbers are possible. I just weighed my Endurance 765 CF Utility which they claim is-3.7 oz. It weighed in at 4.7oz with the wrapper on the cork on my food scale. They must have used 1oz of plastic to protect...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

Mine is on a the 64UL/BF Regular Fast MS-X. Sweet bass rod, which is its primary purpose, but it's also panfish capable. It will launch a 2g Rapala Original Floater. Not sure about going lower. I really like that rod series, just a lot for me to spend on 2nd BFS rod. Would still rather try the Corz...

Re: BFS Tsurinoya Dragon rod

I LOVE the Tsurinoya "Ares" rod. I put Ares in quotes because it is not printed on the rod but, is included in the description of the rod. It is a 4'7 XUL, solid carbon 2 piece BFS rod. It has a deep bend and I would not recommend it for trout consistently over 8in. The rod is very fun wth...
