Re: Opinion: It may not be worth it

It’s worth it. I dealt with the same conundrum years back and I agree it’s hard to justify when money is tight. But this can be said of all expense. Yes, you can ding a reel. But you can ding a car door too. Or stain that extra nice shirt you bought. And just how good was that steak you spent 50 buc...

Re: Spool Overfilled? and Topshot Floro Issues

Let the spool tell you. Judging by photo I’d say you’re filled better than maximum. But you’ll know for certain soon enough, mount it, string it up, open the bail. What jumps off the spool is the amount the spool doesn’t want.

Re: Sunline Super Natural

In my humble opinion... 3) Moderately disappointed or 4) Monumentally pissed off Now, in Super Natural defense there isn't anything 'bad' about it. But comparing it to Defier isn't fair. They're on a different level. Defier you fish until you know you shouldn't and then you swap. Super Natural you f...

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

The backing is 50 yds. of Sufix braid, topped by 300 yds, of Daiwa Samurai. FWIW, As I look over my original post, I think a better description of the overrun I'm experiencing is "midway" through the cast. Originally I said it occurred in the beginning, and that is not completely accurate. Not sure...

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

new combo I'm breaking in If your braid is digging you’ll feel it and I see no problem tossing 1.5oz on 30lb. I’ve done it many times. But, the rod itself can be contributing. It happens when actual bend prior to release is too moderate. It could be obvious, such as distance casting a jigging stick...

Re: Rats vs Fish Profile

Rather surprised no feedback so I’ll chime. In short, there is no firm answer. But for me, it’s rodent during rain or overcast and fish during sunup or calm. Otherwise take your pick. But I do believe profile matters so I look to mimic best I understand. Many a day fish cruise shallow in sunlight be...
