Re: Tatula Hate vs newer shimanos

Even Daiwa and Shimano are offshoring some of the manufacturing. I never heard of a Shimano reel which is not produced by Shimano. Can you please show an example? I was under the impression that Shimano is the only reel company that completely makes their own reels. It would be more instructive for...

Re: More new Tatula models...

If I recall, people had the same sentiment about the Zillion after they discontinued the TD-Z ... :whistle: Yea just waiting on some other ratio versions of the Zillion 10 Like Zillion 7 (7.1:1) Zillion 6 (6.3:1) That will be my next purchase. Anyone hear of 2021 releases ? Anyone hear of what’s co...

First impressions, the Yozuri 8 SEEMS to be acceptable. I’ll need a bit of time for final verdict but ...

Board Sponsor Shout Out ...

Thanks to TackleTrap.com ...
I purchased 3 rods in the past month. All were packed carefully and shipped quickly.
Great prices + a discount for TT members.
A few non-rod purchases all well done!

Keep up the great work

Re: Gan Craft 230 Replacement

I am SOOOOO glad I never got really bit by the big swimbait bug. It almost happened but you help put the whole thing into perspective ... I go a bit nuts for a few extra OSP baits if I lose one but I know what those Gan Crafts costs, bless you!

Re: Adding length to a rod

In my opinion, you're better off just getting another rod that suits your needs. If you don't think you can do the work, and need to pay to have it done, I think you're money ahead finding a different rod. Not to mention the loss of any warranty you may have by doing this work. Personally, adding t...

Re: Catfishing

I’ve caught 2 channel cats on 4” power worms, 1 channel cat on an Evergreen One’s Bug and 1 channel cat on an O.S.P. Blitz Max. All were about the same size, 2lbs or so. The hard baits were topwater/shallow cranks.

Adding length to a rod

I have an Evergreen Cobra TMJS-63MH, spinning rod. Would it be possible to lengthen the rod by: 1. Remove the current cork handle and reel seat. 2. Splinting 5” or so of rod blank onto the butt end 3. Moving the reel seat and handle down and rebuilding. 4. Any additional work. OR Would it be no cost...
