Re: Millionaire CT SV reel

Yeah, basically K.T.F. (premium product) and Roro (expensive Ali/China product). Or has anyone else published another product?

Re: Winter is coming

^ That's water temperature that it should be. If it's too hot for fishing, then take a quick bath, then it's OK again. Obviously somebody here in Finland has too hot even on winter because they take baths especially on winter. Surface temperature 43℉ according to Hummingbird in a small lake in south...

Re: Getting into BFS

Kuying Teton SUL and UL rods are cheap and easy to cast with bfs weights. Those are not long casting, but those are easy casting, and fun rods with fish. If you find finesse spool to your current reel, that should be good purchament. And yes, there are cheap finesse spools in Ali for Fuego. Fuego + ...

Re: Winter is coming

I hate winter too. But I don't love ice fishing neither if small perches and roaches are target fish. So I prefer to drive 3 hours with car to seatrout shores. There's seatrout season on for December and January, sometimes also February. Catches are not good, but there's a lot of room in shores. And...

Re: Steez 103 R+ spool

What lure weights is the steez 103 r+ best with? Is there much of a difference between the tdz r+ spool and the steez 103 spool? In sv tw Zillion it's good in 1/2 oz....3 oz range. I have two of them. Another one is standard, another one is equiped with HLC spring. Standard one is my most versatile...

Is this new Alpha ct sv a finesse reel ?
In my opinion it is. Spool it up only half spool (level with first ring in spool) to reduce inertia and to add revolutions of spool. Or to purchase small capacity tuning spool. KTF or Roro.

Re: U-40 pros and cons

The best (and actually the only one) advantage that I have found of cork seal is to smooth Kuying Teton SUL and UL grips. Those are extremely rough. Just apply cork seal, let it dry, then sand with 120 paper. Much better! I have applied cork seal to all other my rods, but I haven't found much differ...

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Just replacing sv spring to HLC spring. In BFS fishing it doesn't extend practucally never. Braking power is pretty much virtual in low Magrce settings, but in magforce 4-5 could found as enloyable settings for thumb braking in bfs cast, at least with half spool.

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

I have casted only with Teton SUL and small weights (and short casts). I have also Teton UL, but I still haven’t casted with it. But with Teton SUL casting distances are practically same. Original spool arrived with broken inductor. But I made it BFS castable with HLC spring => fixed inductor in BFS...

Re: Daiwa magnetic brakes

It depend’s on which reel is in use and for which use. OG HLC Zillion needs a lot of thumb brake in common fishing situation and it still makes birdnests. It’s trouble free only in powercasting over 100 meters with 2…3 oz weight, and with those casts it don’t need much thumbing. sv Zillion is very t...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

K.T.F. is with 'Kahen' inductor which is sv type. Which means moving inductor, activation ramp, weak spring and inductor stays in a magnetic field by magnetic force. K.T.F. is really nice and refined spool and it works nicely in short casts of BFS. I still haven't tested it slightly heavier use (cas...

Re: BFS Training Line

I'm not highly skilled in BFS, but my BFS combination is easy to handle. It don't make bad birdnests virtually ever. I can't use power nearly at all with my Teton SUL because I nearly always cast little heavier lures than the rod is designed for. And because of that lure can stop virtually any time ...
