Re: New Poison Adrena

Would the 611 be a good senko rod? If you like a stiffer/more powerful rod for senkos, then yes. It's super sensitive and light weight, no issue feeling bites on slack fluoro. Are you talking about the backbone or the tip? There is still some tip that allows you cast light baits, yes? Both really. ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I have held one in the store and it's more Alphas-like then Steez TW SV-like, which is good imho. I was thinking about picking one of the 8.1 Tat100 reels up to use on a frog rod but I might wait and see how the SV version shakes out. What frame is the new Zillion10 build on? I am losing track of a...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I've palmed the Tatula 100 at my local BPS and it actually palms really good. I hear they are Steez TW SV size but I don't have one so it is more like an Alphas to me.

Re: St Croix Avid or Gloomis IMX

I am taking nothing away from the Avid or IMX line. They are both excellent products, but neither is worth anywhere near their respective list price imho. The Avids I think are a solid rod at $200 in terms of blank and build quality, I mostly like them due to all the shorter rods they offer, someth...

Re: St Croix Avid or Gloomis IMX

They were $199 with free shipping within the last 2 weeks. They will probably do something similar on Black Friday. I saw it in an email, so go to their site and subscribe. They send email-only deals to me all the time. If I actually liked cork grips, I would have already taken advantage. Cool, tha...

Re: Japan Fishing Show 2020 Predictions

I slipped while wading last year and fell on a big flat rock landing directly on my ass. Felt like someone had smacked my bottom with a 2x4. I sure wish I had been wearing my Hip guard GM-3615 that day.

:D

At the prices those fetch I'll take a kistler klx or helium any day of the week.
For under $200, you can get a H3 direct from Kistler right now. That beats either of the mentioned brands' comparable offerings by at least $150.
Where are you seeing a deal on an H3 for under $200?

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I read where a guy stretched the spring that is between the dial and the screw to give it more resistance. Not sure if it works good because I have never tried it. That's really interesting. I supposed one could replace the spring with a stiffer one as well but idk how springs are “rated” so I don’...

Re: Adding tension to Daiwa spool tension knobs?

An o-ring. I had to add one in lieu of the ss sv washer kit when I added a HH tension knob to my SV103. Works like a charm. I work in fluidics and have an endless supply at work. I can send you some if you want to go that route. Thanks for the offer! I have a big kit of o-rings that I bought for wa...

Adding tension to Daiwa spool tension knobs?

Hi, I have a couple Pixies and Alphases that I run with no to minimal spool tension. The issue I have is that the knobs are very loose and I am constantly tightening or loosening them by accident during handling. I was thinking of adding thick grease to the threads but I am afraid of getting grit an...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I actually like the current mag dial. I can adjust it one-handed and I guess I palm it the right way to not notice it. I feel the dial and the ridge under it on my pointer finger. I tried using two fingers in front of the trigger many times but I can't get used to it. Yeah palming with two finger i...
