Re: New to BFS, Reel that excels at longer casts?

Pixy Airy Red is pretty good as is the Engetsu. The Engetsu actually has a slightly heavier spool than a Scorpion 70 but is shallow so once it gets spinning it does not want to stop. I use mine on a ML Zodias BFS rod with those same baits. I also use my Airy Red on a L powered BFS for those same bak...

While i prefer the older Daiwa's, i find the newer shimanos to be superior compared to older models. Smoother, lower profile and much better braking system.
This. I like the older Shimanos but i like my older Daiwas more.

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Pretty sure this reels gonna be the greatest thing since i was born. Curado hasn't excited me since the e7 but i think this 70 mgl is the real deal If you don't mind a less line capacity then check out the 70 based Engetsu too. It's a micro mod Curado 70 with a 105 mm handle and aluminum side plate...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Won't work with Daiwa knobs. Dunno about Shimano, but the knob shaft does look similar to Shimano shafts. Daiwa and Shimano posts are the same diameter, but Shimano posts are longer. There are some OEM handles floating around out there that have the same diameter posts, but are even shorter than Da...

You tried to fit Daiwa knobs to the handle and they wouldn't fit? The handle came with the Yumeya style metal knobs and you changed them correct?

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Gomexus got some really nice knobs. One glow in the dark and the other translucent. Both with titanium coated caps. https://www.aliexpress.com/item/4001153081560.html?spm=a2g0o.detail.1000060.2.2c3b703fxV9GYi&gps-id=pcDetailBottomMoreThisSeller&scm=1007.13339.169870.0&scm_id=1007.13339.169870.0&scm...

Re: 2020 Fuego CT SV

Ugly half red thing. Maybe the USDM will be less offensive looking. I rather like the satin black paint, black level wind insert, frame milling, red accents and ghosted vector logo of the USDM model.

That mag dial protrusion looks too smooth to be a mag dial to me. No dial means no mag brakes.

Re: $50 L powered (BFS?) rods?

For $35 it is hard to find a fault but if the quest is to find a 2pc Volkey 68L BFS budget stick then I would pass and spend a little more. Not a bad buy if you want to try out this whole carbon cone for a grip thing. Trulinoya has some interesting looking sticks that may make for a decent Volkey cl...

Re: $50 L powered (BFS?) rods?

Its here. No use yet. It seems very well built for $35. It is a little softer that my Volkey 68L BFS and is much heavier. Sensitivity seems great for $35. Made of Japan. No regrets. Do you figure it's lighter powered or has a more moderate taper? Guess you probably won't know until you get it out f...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

New Tatula spools. 6.18 grams. Air brake with black inductor. $33. They come in different sizes to fit the SV CT, CT/100 and 100 SV reels. Got a silver one for my Tatula CT SV on the way. LowRange, have you tried your spool yet? IF so, how do you like it? I ordered two spools for my Tatula SV TWs (...

Re: $50 L powered (BFS?) rods?

I'm trying various sub $50 Aliexpress rods to find a cheap versions of my Volkey BFS' so I can stop taking them out on my Kayak since they irreplaceable at this point. Something I don't mind leaving at the bottom of the pond if something happens. Plus it is just fun to try different rods and tapers...
