Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

Each person interprets their sensitivity and balance differently. Are their more sensitive rods than the IMX Pro at their price point? Definitely. But they do have a place in my line up. The new curado 70 has new features and a color scheme that will match up very nicely. :D

Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

I will be pairing this new XG 70 with a GLX 842 for an all-around medium rod. Should be a blast for weightless senkos. Personally I am not a fan of the color scheme. It is not going to match most rods very well. The older 70 would look good on a much wider variety of rods. It will match the IMX pro...

Re: 15 Metanium dc HG gear swap

This is a brand new reel with no issues at this time. Just want to get the new set and have them waiting if or when they are needed. It is also a JDM reel.

Re: 15 Metanium dc HG gear swap

Thanks for the reply, but that thread only addresses the 13 Met. Have you done this swap in the 15 DC?
Do the 13 and the 15 dc use the same gears?

15 Metanium dc HG gear swap

I have looked for hours for a straight answer on if there is a brass set of gears available for this real.
Can some one supply a part number or link to a gear set? If so it would be much appreciated.

Re: Shimano Spinning Suggestions

My concern with the Exsence ci4+ is that the spool holds 110m of 8lb line, where as the Sustain holds 155m of 8lb line. Is this going to drastically cut down my casting distance? The line capacity will not cut down your casting distance unless you can spool the reel on a cast. Where casting differe...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I have 3 Conquests and plan on adding at least 1 more. So far in the line up, CNQ 842s , CNQ 843s and a CNQ 903c.
I also have the 2016 series GLX 842 , 843 and 844. Any one want to give any recommendations for my next casting rod in the Conquest line and what you would use it for?

Re: Exsence vs Stella FJ

The Exsence is a little lighter and has a CI4+ spool and is very smooth but is a little lite in the refinement compared to the Stella. As described above, it feels precision engineered. It is just a little smoother and has a more connected feeling. It also has a metal spool. Important to me for some...

Re: Exsence vs Stella FJ

Get the 2500s instead of the 3000. Same reel, just shallower spool.

Re: Exsence vs Exsence Ci4+

After watching the linked video I will most likely be going with a stadic for my next spinning reel.
I have 3 high end reels already and can not see myself laying down the coin for such a small enhancement.
It will be a Stella or stradic.
