Re: MB Deep X 200 LBO

Lol - I had to stop myself from buying the 100 version as well. Cabin fever is very dangerous towards my wallet! Don’t know about you but I’ve got about 4 months to go before I’m fishing again. Threw the Deep x 200 LBO around a bit, thing doesn't want to dive quickly to depth at all. I'm sitting in...

Don't hava a kayak yet but plan to get a sit on top
The issue is high sticking when you land fish. I would suggest a full length handle landing net if you're going with 7'6+ rods from the yak, will make your life a lot easier.

Re: Best bang for the buck spinning reel

75 - 120 the obvious choices are Fuego LT and Tatula LT. I can't believe no one's mentioned the LT reels yet.

And btw...I strongly recommend against chinesium spinners. Baitcasters, you might get lucky.

My expride 7’ light + mainly used for neds
What's the heaviest weight you'd comfortably throw on that 7'L+? I'm doing a lot of things well with my 610ML, but missing a little bit of length for certain techniques.

Re: Daiwa Rebellion Rods 2020

HVF + blading x...this was the Cronos formula, and those were very lively rods. I liked them better than any of the Tatula variants released last couple of years.

Re: The Offseason Changes Continue!

A guy like you may buy Daiwa Steez rods and reels but that guy comes through the door once a week maybe. One youth on the tube with say 309 subs will make much more when those 309 go through shimanos door and get middle tier equipment. Thing is, from a marketing POV these are not mutually exclusive...

Valleyhill - Jado - Guidepride baits

I remember seeing these awhile back, LC built but to guidepride's specs. Interesting baits, the pointer clones with weight transfer I can't wait to cast.

Does the green mirror actually give a GREEN TINT as you look out, or does it actually have a different tint looking through it?
The 580g green mirrors are bronze based lenses. Very good all around choice for freshwater fishing. The blue mirrors are gray based, I like those too.

Re: Vision 110 Jr hook upgrade(?)

What irks me is they come in flat eye hook hangers...hard to find appropriate single hooks for them.

Re: New grease suggestions

My life's been a whirlwind of buying a house, marriage, child arrival, selling my old faithful Suzuki Sierra and buying another ASX and work, crappy weather (either drought & no water / downpour rains and flooding), servicing and home DIY work also... Ive applied the Tef-Gel to my Curado K MM gears...

Re: New grease suggestions

So applied some WS2 for added benefit... IMG_20190707_195128.jpg Will let it run through for a while - not too keen to revisit the Calais again for a bit... Slazmo, any updates on this experiment? I too added a bit of Shimano drag grease over the Tef Gel on my Revo Beast...almost feels perfect. But...
