Re: Lucky craft issues

Venting here, purchased three lightning pointers. From what I read they should suspend. All three of mine float. I called lucky craft to see what I should do. They said I should take them back to the retailer. If they won’t take them then I can call back. Why should my local shop be out of three mo...

Re: It's True: ElaZtech does indeed melt...

I keep mine between my butt cheeks where it's outta the sun and the temp is consistently 98.6. Although, i could be in trouble if I'm.running a fever. On top of all that, there's a bonus scent that drives fishies crazy. Wont work for everyone though. The sun shines out from there with some people. ...

Re: Truck Wars!!! Reel BattLes

You talking these kind of "trucks"... IMG_20200821_052946.jpg IMG_20200821_053047.jpg Caught these two Mall Crawling here in Aus. Seriously overdone in all aspects, not useful for us other than d*ck wagging rights. Yep lots of American trucks getting around up north as well. Dodge Rams being the mo...

That would hold roughly 75 yards of a #40 braid
Most of the Japanese light jigging reels seem to hold about the same. Given the intended use of this reel or Shimano's Stile range, 200m of PE1 is a fair bit. Say 200 yards of good quality Japanese 20+lb braid.

I'm hoping they do anyways, I'd like a smaller version of the current scorpion mgl. i just want this new MGL spool for my Engetsu. It already has the MM gears and as a ...

Re: Exsence dc 17 dc sound gone

I think on the Ecsence reels, the dc only works at the end of a cast. So probably doesnt engage in scenario you are giving. Take it out for a cast, whine should start say 1/2-2/3 of way to touchdown.

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Not sure if this has been brought up already, any word on the Scorpion version of this reel. Will Shimano be producing a Scorpion 70 k? They have produced a scorpion version of all the newest curados so far so they will most likely have one of this model coming out. I'm hoping they do anyways, I'd ...

Re: River 2 Sea and JSJ Team Up to Trigger Those Bass

Yes Cal, thats the one. Most we get here are good to swing a blade off, but, the ring itself is not attached to anything substantial and pull out under the weight of a good fish. Thanks for the quick response.
