Re: Kuying SuperLite Ajing

Yes, action for this kind of fight, for a light rod, was just perfect. I would like somekind of wrist support anyway, it's still quite long rod with short two piece handle. Actually pike didn't has a change...Because it didn't know that by pulling as hard as can, that probably could empty my reel or...

Re: Daiwa tatula sv103sh or alphas ctsv70 for light stuff?

That new Tatula? Yes ct Alphas is smaller. But for lightest use with standard spool it's better not to fill spool, only level to the first mark. But that's not ideal. If you like to use ct Alphas for light stuff, purchase inexpensive aftermarket spool from Ali. Then it's capable for real light lures...

Re: What is wrong with Quantum

When I bought Quantum PT Burner I thought it is proudly Made in USA. And I dind't know how horrible 4 set casting brake is. But manufacturing quality seems good anyway. Maybe I just have to get over of using spool tension as fine tuning casting brake.

Re: 88 Degrees

It wasn't that far from 88 degrees here in Finland in last weekend. Usually in midsummer it rains snow in here and storm winds. For these options hot is better :D Now it's again cold and it rains - a lot.

Re: What is wrong with Quantum

I have 2009 Quantum Energy PT burner. In my opinion it's well made tough little reel. Cranking is smooth. It's very low, and palms good. But it's wide and machinery side is heavy. Casting performance is something between horrible and very good. Casting brake has only 4 positions and none of these is...

Re: 70 size spool options

K.T.F announces it has a 30mm finesse spool in production \:D/ =D> =P~ Coming soon... That is great spool. I have loved it in finesse use. But now I found that it really shines on casting ~4 g. When correctly adjusted, it allows to cast effortlessly all the day. And putting some effort to long cast...

Re: Kuying SuperLite Ajing

Kuying SuperLite Ajing is really amazing good light boat rod for medium sized perch and for light pike fishing. But when occasionally big pike strikes, I miss one piece handle it instead of 2 piece. Casting performance of it is impressive and action with those fishes is very good. Extreme soft tip k...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Fishing trip on Saturday We went to fishing to a small lake which is near to us. Lake is known as pike lake, but we haven’t never got any real big pike from there. And therefore last times when we have visited there, we have focused to Perch, which is plenty there and sometimes those are decent siz...

Re: New Daiwa reel?

Imagine they introduce a Z1016 that has a Tat frame and is made in Thailand. How exciting would that be? I think it is just that. Daiwa engineers have read Tackletour discussions and decided to create our deepest wish. 'You have long long time wishing Z1016. Now here it is. Price tag is naturally a...

Re: Kuying SuperLite Ajing

As 'feeling' I don't mean feel is more sensitive or not with spinning gear or baitcasting. I mean feeling overall, total control of line / bait all the time. Direct line control is the thing for me. And with quality lightweight baitcasting setup this feeling is very satisfying for me.

Re: Kuying SuperLite Ajing

I think main difference in Ajing baitcasting vs. spinning is feeling. If managed to use effortlesly, feeling with baitcaster is very good. If it is nothing but effortlesly, feeling is very frustating.

Re: I don't use spinning gear at all. Do you?

There is species that needs spinning gear. It think GT would be tough to fish with baitcasting reels, and possibility that there's no baitcasting reel for needs like that. Maybe same for Tuna? But in Finland most common 'sport' species are: Pike, Perch, Zander, Trouts and Salmons. Those species can ...

Re: Kuying SuperLite Ajing

Last weekend I took as lightest setup Kuying Superlite SAC762S: Casting 7’6”(2.28m) Lure:0.6-10g with ct Alphas. I used both KTF spool and RCSB CT SV700 spools. Setup was pretty great for UL fishing from boat in distance casting mind. With RCSB CT SV700 I had a little difficulties in lightest lures ...

Re: I don't use spinning gear at all. Do you?

I use spinning gear for bush fishing. Been doing more and more of it. There are some nice hidden spots if you are willing to machete your way to them. I prefer short BFS gear for bush fishing. The one handed casting is really nice in that thick brush. I agree! In my opinion short rod with light bai...

Re: I don't use spinning gear at all. Do you?

Currently I have no reason to use spinning gear because I would miss baitcasting fishing then.
