Re: DAIWA 18 ZILLION TW HLC 1516 SH

No reason it wouldn't be perfect for that. You might consider getting a set of 6.3 or even 5.5 gears for it, though.

Re: Square Bill

Cool! I like to whittle the front of rebel poppers to the same shape as a Rico and throw ST-36 hooks on it.

Wow! =D> Can we see pics of this transformation? I'm with you on the huge guides. For a long time, they were either way too big or just ridiculously small, sometimes on different rods in the same series. The Fuji small caliber or semi micros or whatever they're called are perfect.

Re: Let's see that backlash!

No problem man. You’ve got things covered with those sweet combos! I’m sure you’ve got enough sensitivity in those MSX rods to not lose much changing to braid for certain things. Hate seeing wasted spoils of fluoro, gets expensive fast! Good luck! Thanks and likewise! If my signature on every post ...

Re: Power Pro Super 8 Slick V2

I'm gonna try a Yucatan knot next time. I've got to get the Bimini Twist down first, but that doesn't look so bad. Apparently the Yucatan is super strong, thin, and easy to tie, and I'm thinking that even if the fluoro wears out or breaks the Bimini Twist loop should still be in good shape and ready...

Re: Round Reel Question

The Lin is based off the Ryoga and has Zillion sized gears AFAIK while the Monoblock is based off the Millionaire and has Alphas sized gears. I don't know if I consider the Ryoga to be a truly round reel since it has that big gearbox hanging off the side to accommodate the larger gear set, but that'...

Got the sv light Ltd today and am feeling good about it. Negligible difference between the Steez. Gorgeous reel out of the box.
Nicely done, sir. You deserve a drink.

SLX DC.
I am going to buy one just to encourage Shimano to produce reels with names I can pronounce.
Good thing they shortened it from essellex. :lol:

Re: High end JDM rod recommendations

Shimano Poison Ultima 66M (Versatile). This rod is "it" in terms of versatility which the OP asked about. I will literally start with a topwater bait, switch over to a swimming senko/MB Dark Sleeper and finish with something texas rigged/jig as the sun gets higher. I have little doubt that it would...

Re: SV Light Limited

SS Airy hollow poor man's Steez fanatic here. Was never bothered by the feel of my SS SV reels, hence added an SS Air w/ Alphas air spool, and the SV Light to the arsenal. I do wish the SV Light came w/ Bass or Die knobs out of the box. Gorgeous. I need to get a light box. Which levelwind cap is th...

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

For the last few years, every time i don't use a vision 110, i ask myself why am i wasting time. All the squadminows, reranges, shadow rap shads, etc are a no match for the vision 110's. I still use em because they're cheaper, but if i could, i'd use the 110's exclusively. The way they slash in the...

Re: Looking to upgrade hooks and rings LC FM Tr85SP.

I agree. I prefer Owner, too. I think Decoy is almost on par with them. I'd like to know what brand Evergreen uses, because those things are just ridiculously sharp, even after a lot of fish. It almost feels like there's a microscopic drop of super glue right on the point. The only problem I've ever...

Re: Looking for small casting reel suggestions

I've never fished one, but those Lew's do feel great in hand. They are super compact and that finish seems bulletproof.
