Re: Any Aliexpress baits worth trying?

I have the Ito Shiner and the Kanata from Bearking. The ito shiner is great. Casts well, and slashes nicely on a jerk. Kanata casts extremely well, but the action is completely garbage. And i just noticed, Bearking has made a copy of the mb i-slide for under $10. Have not tested it, tho. https://ww...

And nearer to 10 g casting weight there should not be performance difference.
Thanx for answer. I think my working weight will 6-10 g: 60-70 mm minnows and small sinkers with 2.0"-3.0" soft lures.

Likely going to have a tough time finding one, especially including the price of additional spools, for around $250.
Sorry, don't saw 250$ budget.
In this case Tatula SV TW looks very good variant: reel + additional spool.

Re: What's the best all around baitcaster??

I think answer for your question is "Daiwa's Steez SV TW".
With many additional spools options available for this reel (Japan or China made, SV or fixed inductor), you may use it as for hard lures, as for jig (3-30 g weight).

Re: 15 Metanium dc HG gear swap

Thanks for the reply, but that thread only addresses the 13 Met. Have you done this swap in the 15 DC? Do the 13 and the 15 dc use the same gears? Hello, Friend!
