Why all the red????
I wish they would have made it all black. Or maybe with a little silver accent.
Too much red for my liking.
The new design looks kinda like my first generation poison adrenas, but with alot more red.
Red AND just too much bling. I find them ugly as .... (and I like Shimano)

Re: (Swim) Jig confusion

The big perch appreciate large fish imitations, so a swim jig with paddle tail should perform well.

The fish in the picture was one of two perch caught that day swimming the 20cm 98gram (8” 3.5oz) Savage Gear line thru trout in moderate sink...

Re: (Swim) Jig confusion

Thank you, smalljaw. I have been searching for and buying some more swim jigs with 30˚ line tie or thereabouts. Unfortunately, I had already spent some dollars on jigs less suited for swimming, which is the skirted jig fishing style I am most interested in at present. For some reason, skirted jigs a...

Re: Best action for a jig rod

I agree with other comments. When choosing my rod I consider many things... Lure matters: In general, I prefer F or XF rods for lures that I present slowly, often with single hooks, and with bottom contact such as most jigs. In contrast, for fast moving baits, often with treble hooks, I prefer M or ...

Re: (Swim) Jig confusion

Thank you very much. Very informative and nice to know that arkie style jigs can be used (I think I get what they are and will google :-)). Yes, a sharp hook is needed indeed and I like that I will be using just one single hook. At times, it can be a pain to remove a jerkbait with three trebles from...

(Swim) Jig confusion

I decided that 2020 will be the year that I chase Scandinavian perch and pike with swim jigs and chatterbaits - so I bought a ton of jigs and chatterbaits from Amazon.co.jp. However, as I am not that used to fishing with skirted jigs, I have become a little confused with regard to swim jigs and jig ...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

So far, I have refrained from placing an order on the new Steez Air.
As others have noted, many current offerings cover the BFS/light lure need. If the Steez Air was 40-50k JPY I would move fast and buy. However, as the price is >60k on Digitaka, I will wait a while...

Re: Slp g1 CT shallow spool in 2020

It should be fine in Steez/Millionaire/Alphas CT. I have swapped standard spools, SLP “deep”, Roro, and KTF spools between my Steez and Millionaire with no issue. Alphas is the same...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

It may be of interest to some: The Pixy Ize spool fits my Alphas Air Stream Custom, but the DIY spool did not. Have you used the Pixy i'ze spool in the air stream custom? If so did it perform the same as in a Pixy? Thanks Only briefly and it performed nicely as in my PX68: good control overall and ...
