Re: New to BFS, Reel that excels at longer casts?

Welcome! 1/8-1/4 oz is do-able with many reels including non-BFS reels where aftermarket spools help. I use many different reels for that weight range, mostly stream fishing but also some lake fishing. If you lake fish from a boat, casting 1/8-1/4 oz lures is much easier than if fishing a stream wit...

Re: 2020 Met MGL vs 2019 Antares

I also have both and have not noticed any significant difference in performance/casting - yet. Both are great reels. I do not mind the weight difference. I am very strong - 220 grams, 45 grams more than the Met, is just manageable :D One nice thing, albeit maybe a minor thing, in favour of the Met i...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

I think with this new micro sized spool they need a new super duper ultra lightweight solid tipped ags rod to go with it... I will be pairing mine with a Daiwa Air AGS Long Distance Finesse: https://www.daiwa.com/scandinavia/contents/rods/air_baitcasting/index.html Also on the way... Wow..super int...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

So is mine. It's screaming thank you for having no interest in this reel! That was my first thought. Knowing myself, I will become interested before next summer when trout season kicks in... Well, next summer is now. I finally broke down and the reel on the way. I am suprised that I held out this l...

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I do not consider myself rich, but I can buy any reel/rod that I desire. I do not own a boat (=price of many combos). I have 70+ reels and rods and most are high end. I collect and love tackle, but I do not catch more on my high-end stuff than on my cheaper gear. Maybe - just maybe - expensive vs me...

Re: Conquest 100 users

I really like mine. Throw spoons, plugs and spinners for large trout. Have installed the shallow avail spool and have the reel on longer rods, where reel weight helps with balance. Have used for some years and have not had to service it yet. Also love round reels and expect the 2020 CQ 101HG DC in t...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Conquest 842 putting in some work yesterday. This jack crushed my Flash Minnow as soon as it hit the water, and was a strong fighter despite the messed up tail. Towed me out a few hundred yards before I was able to tire it out. Always a fun surprise. https://i.postimg.cc/B6w18ZMj/426-FFC78-79-AA-4-...

Re: Any Aliexpress baits worth trying?

What are people’s experience with AE? Reliable, Trustworthy, etc? I find AE sellers to be both reliable and trustworthy. I have purchased several rods, one reel, many lures, many spools, and various accessories from AE. However, while reliable and trustworthy (big plus), quality often suffers. In g...

Re: Your opinion on the Daiwa's Zero Adjuster

Useless to me. Always loosen spool tension “completely” - same with brakes and casting brakes - after a fishing trip.
