Re: BFS Spool For Calcutta 50XT

I don't know if there are differences between the regular Calcutta and Conquest for spools, but if they're the same then this one should work. ... 449aY4FjOq

Re: New Poison Adrena

As for the spinning models...WTH is Shimano thinking. Where's my 7 - 7'2 ML - M?? What's the 6'11MH spinner for? It's a power finesse rod. In short it's what they define as using straight #1-#2PE with most sticking to #1.5PE fishing the small rubber jigs, neko rigs, etc. in heavy cover like overhan...

Re: Weird incident with reel, but funny.

I'm going to assume the white blocks are the small size, if so, then fishshop.shimano has them for $.99 Part BNT4821.

Probably want to keep the trailer size below a 1/4" thick to keep it thumping at a decent depth. Other than that, they're like a standard chatterbait, so yo...

I don't recall having an issue with the connection knot(FG, blood and alberto). I currently use 4lb power pro as a main and have connected that to 10lb big game an...

Reel Repair Question

I haven't taken apart and cleaned/ fixed reels before. So here's the issue. My spool will spin fast enough to cause a small backlash, with the clutch engaged, if you give it enough resistance i.e. working a jerkbait, walking a spook, even hopping a senko caused it recently.
