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.

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

Cal, any chance you could check how well the custom hook hanger is attached ? Some similar attachment points are not very secure and pull out quite easily as they are only set into the lead weight and not firmly attached to the hook itself. Thanks.

Re: Antares A Casting Reel

Anyone with both that can do a size comparison between the new 70 size Antares and the previous model. Cheers. I have the antares HG and the 70 is far more compact and ergonomic. The 70 hugs your hand, your hand hugs the previous model. Thanks. Any idea on weights? Japanese sites seem to list the w...

The retrieve on Steez Air not as smooth as CT.
I've noticed the same thing. Mine isn't close to the smoothness of the Steez CT, but it is still a load of fun to fish.
Huge weight difference, so material variations would account for a lot of the difference in feel.

Re: Nrx 852c leader knot

If you want an even neater FG knot, look at a Rizutto finish. Does add another level of complexity to an already frustrating knot.tho.
