Re: Megabass Ito Shiner?

I like it because of the bigger profile more than anything. When I want to show them a big, easy meal, I'll fish it slow with really long pauses.

Thanks Adam.

Any idea if a OG zillion HLC inductor will fit in a 1016?
I'm not sure, but there are two different HLC spools: one that comes with the HLC reel and another that was released through three I'ze Factory tuning shop. The I'ze spool is ported whereas the stock HLC spool is dimpled.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

There has been a lot of talk about how the Steez CT performs. The insides overall are pretty much the same as the Steez SV TW. Biggest change would be with the main gear. It has ridges in the inner rim of the main gear that a spring loaded pin rubs on to create the buzz sound when the drag pulls ou...

Re: Opinions on the Duo Realis 120SP?

I've caught my best jerkbait fish on a Duo 120SP, it's the first jerkbait tired on every time. How loud are the rattles? I have heard that complaint before. Honestly I still have yet to find a jerkbait that will get bit the way a 110 will in cold water. Had a buddy tie on every LC he had in his box...

Re: Inductors: Type R+ vs Mag Z

You have to keep the inductor blocks with their respective spools, they aren't interchangeable. The RCS spools (1010, 1012, 1016) use different blocks than Magforce spools so that makes swapping spools between the two impossible. You can swap springs though, the Type R+ and HLC spools will be stiffer.

I had that GLX but the reel seat came loose. I'm sending it in the warranty replacement and I'll be getting an 852S in return. Same specs, just a few inches longer.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

i could be wrong but i think the new alphas is the same frame and size as the older generation alphas, but the spool is smaller? someone will have to correct me if wrong on this just what i have read about the reel. Correct, but the similarities stop there. With the smaller, narrower spool, a lot o...

Re: Drilling an Avail 16ALD15 Spool

There's a really old thread on here where the guy used a computer program to equally map out the more spacing and printed it out to use as a template for his drilling. I'll see if I can find it if I have some time to dig today. Minimal pressure, super sharp drill bits, and stepping up the hole size ...

No problem, its an inexpensive blank, but performs better than expected in all respects. I wish they hadn't changed the HM blanks. ](*,)

Mag-Light 2 piece blank...?

On the off chance I decide to have a custom rod meds for my Alphas CT SV, I'd like to use a 2piece blank, preferably something with a light tip to throw 1/8 oz total weight lures, but also able to throw 1/4 oz and fight 3-4 pound trout without feeling overloaded. Any suggestions? Rod length around 6...
