Re: Alphas air stream custom

I did not find it overbraked/restricted, but as mentioned only used the combination briefly. I will have to try it again.

ZPI BFC 901

I am having a hard time figuring out exactly which ABU Revo reels accomodate this spool.

Can any of you guys help?
Will it fit the 2nd Gen. Revo STX or Premier or is it for the earlier Revos?

Thanks!

Re: EVA handles ... yea or nay ?

Big fan of good quality Cork... Non of that Cork that's got big gaps and rough as that falls apart and needs filling. Talking AAAA grade. Hyper or Eva I have on a lot of rods but as mentioned before it needs cleaning so often as it absorbs skin oil's, fish slime and so on. Goes shiny on one side of...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Enquiry from the UK! I get that the ASC was designed for casting low weights , short distances in predominantly trout streams... I’m looking to cast up to 1/4 ounce max small cranks and ZMan Tubes / Bugz / Craws etc on my local river. I’m attracted to reviews of the smoothness of the cast with the ...

Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

I have made several orders from China (and other ”nearby” countries Singapore, Vietnam). The orders have shipped so far and made it quickly to EU. I work as an ID consultant and get quite a few COVID questions when on call (on the “Wuhan hotline”). As far as I know :lol: , I have yet to see a patien...

Re: Line for BFS

I have used a plethora of braided lines (perhaps 10 different lines) mainly 0.08 to 0.14 mm on an abundance of different BFS reels and aftermarket spools (15 different spools or so, JDM, DIY etc) - no issue whatsoever. I guess that you should not try to pull a log from the river with a thumb on the ...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Thanks guys. I will have to give it a go in my Steez and Zillion variants. Plan on doing a lot of Spinnerbait, Chatterbait, and Swim Jig fishing in 2020 - lures from 1/4 to 3/4 oz...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

The T3 1016 spool is a classic and the FX73SV spool is pretty great as well. Off topic, sorry, but: What do you use the T3 1016 spool for? I have used mine in my T3 a few times but found that it needed quite heavy and aerodynamic lures to perform well. Maybe - probably - I just have not used the sp...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Hoohoorjoo, nice story with the ABU rod. I have several 1-piece rods (mainly Loomis and St Croix), but the rods that have given me the greatest memories are all 2/multi-piece. In Denmark, and most of EU, 1-piece rods have been hard to find until quite recently. All my Daiwa rods are 2 or 3-piece EDM...
