Re: Kistler rods?

My opinion on this mirrors what others have said. Their rod ratings changed too much for me to be consistent and build my rod aresnal on them. While i like the blank and the guides (for the helium and above line) i do think that they could use a bit more empasize on the visual side. The cork even on...

Re: Daiwa Steez ct sv or metanium 2020

I do have the Steez CT and have fished the Metanium B very briefly. Two different reels. Unless you only want to use the reel for short distant pitches, I would not go with the Steez CT. The spool just does not hold enough 12+ pound line for longer casts. As stated by @Dalleinf, the reel is great fo...

Re: On the look out for sticky reel grease

Youtube advisor guy has a vid about a lube he uses that sticks real well to gears. Do you mean this one: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0oLnEKAl9QQ ? THat is a bit too chewing gum for me. Will be a night mare when cleaning a reel. Does anybody know what Daiwa uses in their latest Morethan reels? T...

On the look out for sticky reel grease

Hi all, I don't know about you but I have yet to find a good reel grease that keeps sticking on the gears. I have been using a combination of different greases over the years and all seem to have the same problem. After a couple of outings there are just not sticking to the gears and the gears start...

Was thinking that a rotating round rod rack would probably be best, since I would be able to put it into a corder and ...

Re: 2 more broken MB rods...Ughhhh

Yes, as @Drakestar so kindly put :mrgreen: , my Onager snapped within the very few first casts on my outing (with a 4.5oz glide bait). Wasn't sure what to make of it. Then did a bit more subjective analysis of the Onager reviews out there to find that almost everybody warns of this rod. I don't know...
