Re: Duo Rozante 77 vs Pointer 78, Minnow 80SP vs Flash minnow

My Rozante 63 dives deeper than you'd expect, has a wild action, and slowly floats at about 50-60 deg tail up. I'd love to try the larger sizes. The only other duo jerkbait I have is the 100DR and I don't know what it does because it really gets down there.

Re: Recommend $100 UL Spin Rod for Minijigs and 2 lbs test?

I second the Major Crafts. I haven't used their spinning rods, but their casting rods are great. Very well designed and built.

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

So far? MS-X MXC-70H, 70MH, 610M, 64UL/BF. Great rods. I should have gone this route a long time ago.

Thinking hard about the frog rod...

Deep Cranking/Big Bait Combos

Here's mine: Zillion 801MHRB-G/Ambassadeur 5501cs Pro Rocket with dual bearing skeletonized idler gear, dual bearing spool gear, and ceramic pawl. The Gantarel is as big as I go with it and it handles it well. Rocks for baits like the Duo G87 20a. https://i.postimg.cc/856b8xv1/20190119_130316.jpg ht...

Re: What is your prefered reel for jerkbaits

I've used quite a few different reels and found that if I used a high gear ratio with my cadence that I was popping the bait and not the slack. Used a stock tdz type R+ last year and my catch rate seemed to improve. Felt the "lower" gear's helped me keep the bait where I wanted to easier ...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Sounds like I’m going to need to learn how to work on this reel and what upgrades I should look to do... It doesnt even really need bearings for the knobs. They are smooth as can be. I did it because I had bearings that needed a home. Ha. I shouldn’t have ordered bearings then. Well, the handle kno...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

I can get great, manageable distance out of a 3/32 oz (2.3g) spoon using 6# Invizx on my MSX 64UL/BF. Obviously it casts accurately to tight spots, too. I'm using mine for bass, so I don't want to go much lighter on the line, but I'm sure with 2 or 3# the distance would be even better. It casts as ...

Re: Steez LTD

Another question on the Steez Ltd... I went to change spool bearing on the stock SV spool and noticed a big/heavy bearing cup on the spool shaft. This has to add 2 or so grams to this spool. I forgot the weigh it but the spool as a whole weighed around 15 grams. Anyway to take this bearing cup out ...
