Re: Confirmed new Nrx coming out !!

Gussy kept on saying he was using a 872 NRX, but it looked like the rod he was using had a Conquest reel seat. I wonder if it was the new NRX. It seems they changed the NRX ECS-style-trigger to the Conquests trigger somewhen during the last year. Saw pics of it on a shops website that just then sta...

Re: Reel "Feet"

Yup, pretty much my observation as well. If you look at the feet of Shimanos, both front and back are the same length. A Zillion for example has asymmetrical long feet, the front one being way longer and therefore the real sitting closer to the trigger. If that is important to you please also be awa...

Re: Kistler rods?

Anyone have an educated guess how NFC will do without Kistler as a customer? Did they make up for a major portion of NFCs turnover?

Re: Jackall Riser 007

With the 007 and 004 I have, it’s really about getting both speed and tip angle just right. It’s neither burning nor slow rolling - but rather on the slow end. And the line I try to keep above the surface.

Wonder if we will see a Curado BFS? https://fishshop.shimano.com/products/curado-bfs
Was that link working before? Getting an error on my end.
Yes it was. Didn’t show any pics or actual items though.

Re: Dream baitcaster

Take the 20 Metanium but: with a SV spool + brakes, clicky drag, 90mm handle, sealed (like the rcs) but stock shape cork knobs, color scheme like the 15 Aldebaran, ideally cerakoted (Matte black + bright silver) Actual Dreams: optional heater module that plugs with cable through your sleeve but does...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Any difference in Zillion Boost and Steez Boost spools? I may ( actually, I will) get one for my Megabass FX68 with 3D Magforce brake System. Should outcast new Zillion. It might out cast the new Zillion but, it wont have Hyper Digigear, Hyper Clutch and all the other Hyper features. As we‘ve seen ...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

I did hope the zillion would be slightly smaller than it is. I actually prefer the 70 and smaller sized reels. I compared the zillion to my met b's tonight and the differences are hard to tell. I think the zillion sits just a tad be lower on my rods than the metanium. It feels like it's a bit short...

Re: Evergreen Cougar Elite 7 RS

I can provide the balance point comparison when I’ve been out fishing with the friend I sold the Super Cougar to. Could take a while though, it’s pretty cold in Germany. I can say though, the balance point of the PB is closer to the reel. I tend to disagree with your opinion - at least where weight ...

Re: Evergreen Cougar Elite 7 RS

Wow that thing is heavy. I sold my Inspirare Super Cougar as the weight to power ratio just wasn’t satisfying (for that price point). Balance was ok but once you start working the bait you feel the weight of the blank, it’s not just in the handle. I understand they upped the length and power a bit b...
