Re: 2020 Zillion 10

Honest to God - have taken my reel "servicing hat" off and put my "fisho to fisho" deep and meaningful hat on - get your reel pre loved with decent greases and a good application of a water shedding grease on all internal surfaces and you'll have a longer lasting reel, if not for the performance ga...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

When people buy these reels - does anyone actually consider getting them pre serviced? It would avoid the issues of things gumming up and corroding. This is something I hadn’t considered. In my case, it may only become an issue of need if/when I begin fishing salt. I am a life long fresh water angl...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I own both a 10 and a regular sv tw. I took the regular Sv TW in salt for a week long trip knowing there were going to be likely consequences. Cleaned it up as best as a regular dude can after. Anyway, based on that experience, I can’t imagine taking the 10 in salt would be a good idea. I won’t. I ...

Oldie but a goodie, maybe one day I will finally get around to spooling it up and fishing it.

Wow; very cool. You have to wonder how many of these are floating around in that condition. I would think you’d turn heads with that even in Japan.

Gliding small

I picked up some smalish glides as they became available at the stateside JDM retailers. These look just like all the forage in my lakes and are fairly easy to learn. The rods I'm currently swimbaiting with (a monstruo 74 and a Leben Slang Hood) seemed like a bit too much rod for these smallish glid...

Re: Varials

Same thing with the handles. Creative and forward thinking design and engineering + skilled and crafty marketing = sold out.

Site sponsor Japan Tackle has (or at least had) these handles in a couple flavors for those who were looking not to pay auction mark ups

Re: Punching Rods....Help me find the one.

I have a 2019 Kistler zbone 7'10H that is very very good for intended application. I'd say the rod is a more moderate action but to me it fishes like a fast action- feels similar to my NRX 894 with a bit longer and a bit stronger. bought it to punch but have been fishing it with heavy t-rigs as the...

Re: Best lipless crankbait in da business

Ima suspending vibe 70. Slow fall suspends rather than crashing to the bottom like a rock. Deadly. Nuff said. Still haven't managed to catch anything on this one. Great lure though. I’d suggest to keep throwing it. I like sexy minnow color. I rip through shallow grass and it gets crushed on pauses ...

Re: Designo leben and vantage

Does anyone know where these Armada rods with fit in? I’m not sure if it’s by Designo or another maker using Designo blanks? I think Aquaftm mentioned Randoule (sp?) as the new top of the line by Designo. So would these be considered more entry level? Still not cheap by any means. Can’t find much o...

That OG has a slant; don’t think it shows up in the pic.
