Re: asian portal fishing

I'm amused when someone discovers the low prices reels go for outside the US and is so perplexed they think it must be a scam. The only scam is the prices US retailers want for these reels.

Re: Project: Black Max BFS

Any weight saving from the carbon and eva grips? Yes. The stock handle and knobs were exceedingly heavy for their size. The handle is a $13 Aliexpress handle. It is actually very nice for the money but the bearings in it are garbage. The carbon handle part is very well made for the money. I think i...

Re: Lews KVD reel?

I had a Banax made 13 Fishing Concept KP that buzzed right out of the box. Traded it for a PX Type R and while it is no brass geared Alphas in smoothness it is lightyears ahead of the Banax in smoothness and noise.

Re: Rays studio inductor plus a type r inductor spring on sv spool

My only gripe about the Ray's is that that excellent distance tuned inductor is better suited to the kind of baits that I want a little more capacity with. Their spools are so shallow that they don't hold enough 20# braid for Ned rigs or 1/4 oz cranks. At the same time they are not that good for UL ...

Re: Project: Black Max BFS

What’s the lure rating on the AE Black Max rod? 1-7 grams Thanks. Had no idea Abu made a BFS rod. Do Abu have any idea this rod exists? I saw something called a vendetta plus in the piscifun shop the other day, cool looking rod, but I doubt its genuine Abu, I mean they claim 24 ton carbon, how coul...

Re: Shallow Spool For Daiwa SOL - Left Hand?

Thanks ya'll! What about a lighter dual handle? The Tackle Trap might have some straight ZPI carbon handles left. Aliexpress if you want something cheap. Search Gomexus. There are also Ray's Studio carbon handles which I have a number of but the Gomexus handles look better and come with nice knobs ...

No. They have already proven they can't put grease in reels.

Do the gift cards work with Amazon.co.jp ?
I buy a lot of JDM tackle on that site...
That's a good idea.

Not sure why they haven’t made CI4+ guides, like Daiwa AGS, to compliment their CI4+ reel seats.
Ci4+ is graphite powder reinforced plastic just like Daiwa's Zaion. Not something want guides made from. It's an excellent material for reel seats and drag stars though.

Re: Question for Catalina TW owners

I prefer my Catalina s to my zillion tws, now granted my tws is 9.1 and my Catalina s are 7.3, if I remember right the Catalina has aluminum side plates whereas the tws is zaion. The Catalina I use in the salt has been a little finicky with fluorocarbon but that appears to have been a one time deal...

It won't fit. There is a cutout on the frame for the release switch. Here is a picture comparing the Catalina TW and Zillion 1516 https://i.imgur.com/RI7ld90.jpg https://i.imgur.com/QkDUDzc.jpg How does the Catalina TW compare to the Zillion TWS in terms of braking profile and smoothness?
