Re: Any reviews on the new Phenix m1s ?

Yea I think that's new sin...

Anybody know the handle length?
I was watching the live stream of Shimano releasing the Curado 70 MGL K, and Shimano said it's the same handle from the Curado K.

Re: A longer MH rod

Another highend option is the Phenix K2 Torzite Casting Rod 7'6" Heavy. Don't let the power rating throw you off, that rod line fishes light and the Heavy would be like a 4-power in other brands (also see comments on TW). I haven't fished the 7'6" H itself, but I got a 7'1" ML recently and freaking...

Re: A longer MH rod

Take a look at the new Phenix rods M1 as well, they have a 7'8 MH, and H. I've fished with the first generation Phenix M1 7'7 MH, and it did not feel tip heavy, but that was also a custom built rod. The Phenix Feather also has a 7'7 MH or H as well. If you want something higher end, take a look at t...

20 Shimano Exsence DC SS

I was trying to search and see if anyone's created a thread yet regarding the 2020 Shimano Exsence DC SS, but could not find one. Just wondering if anyone has gotten their hands on one yet and what they're using it for? I was in the market of picking up another Bantam MGL for frogging, but may opt f...

Re: Braid

I just use electrical tape and just tie the braid on directly and haven't had any slippage issues.

Re: Need Help, New Spinning Reel

If you're looking at daiwa spinning reels, along with the Tatula LT, check out the Ballistic LT as well. I have a Stradic Ci4, and picked up the Stradic FL back in November and have fished with it a lot. I'm really liking the Stradic FL as it has a buttery smooth drag, I do notice a slight increase ...

Re: Scorpion 71 vs Curado71

If you want a reel that you can also frog with, go with either the Curado K, Scorpion MGL, or Bantam MGL due to line capacity.

Re: Scorpion 71 vs Curado71

I believe the extra bearing is in the handle. I have the scorpion 71HG and use it mainly for pitching. What pound braid are you planning on spooling the reel with? If you're frogging and and spooling up 65 pound braid or heavier, not sure if it will hold enough line if you're bombing casts with it.

Re: Do you guys always use reel covers and rod sleeves?

I always use rod sleeves and reel covers whenever transporting them in my car, since I usually at least have anywhere from 2-6 combos with me. Once I get to the dock and on the boat, I take off the rod sleeves, but leave the reel covers on until I'm ready to fish. If I'm bank fishing or going for a ...

Re: Decoy egg snaps questions???

I haven't tried to the 1 or 1.5 size, but I use the size 2 egg snaps. I haven't had any issues of the snaps coming off at all after locking it in place. I've used the size 2 for jerkbaits, poppers, cranks, and spoons, and haven't had any issues so far. I do want to try the size 1 for the finesse har...

Re: Social distancing ...

Better get in your fishing fix while you can. Most of our lakes here in Southern California have already been shut down.

Stay safe out there, and tight lines!

Re: Curado K vs Bantam

Has anyone used either reel for punching/flipping heavy cover? I already have the bantam, but looking to purchase another reel. We get some thick junk here in Minnesota in the summer. I used my Bantam for frogging and flipping mats last year and intend to do so this year. What do you want to know? ...
