Re: BFS Calcutta Conquest - casting

Should be fine, I’ve cast 3g with no issues. Worst case is you could always upgrade the spool to a Microcast. It’s a hefty reel that feels awesome in hand.

Re: How much line to put on UL spool?

I shoot for about 30m but I am using Varivas Nylon and targeting small streams. I respool frequently as I beat a lot of brush and rock so I just strip it all and start fresh.

Re: REVO LTX BF8

Really well made reels that are the smallest form factor I’ve handled. Can spool about 50m of 6lb to fill it up I only run about 30m as I changed the line regularly. I did swap in the HH AirBFS bearings in the side plate and spool, as well as changing the bearing behind the spool tension knob. This ...

Re: 7-8 foot bfs rod?

I look forward to receiving the Super Suspender, which is short for your liking and with a high glass content (not ideal for jig fishing?). I do not believe that you should give attention to the lower end casting weight of 0 gram, which is just this one brands way of saying that the rod handles low...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

The combo for UL fishing is almost ready. All I need is the fishing line, so please give me some tips for a thin and soft fluorocarbon. Thanks !!! https://i.imgur.com/786UyZk.jpg Fluoro is not typcially soft and thin, I would recommend a Nylon if you want soft and thin. I’m a big fan of Varivas Nyl...

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

7 miles of walking streams yesterday, caught this guy after hiking about 2 miles back. He smacked a Duo Ryuki Spearhead Awabi 60mm.

Wondering if anyone here has weighed the 16 Aldebaran BFS handle and knob? I'd love to know how many grams.

Thanks.
If no one responds before tonite I can remove the assembly from the test reel I have here and weigh it.

Re: (SUL) Super Ultra Light?

Yesterday I put Quantum Enerpy PT Burner to SUL Kuying Teton, just because Quantum is most compact baitcaster that I currently have (It's really low profile reel vs. Daiwa's). Heck, that reel was heavy :-) It is 7.8 oz. My idea was to put my sv tw Zillion (with BFS spool) to SUL Kuying Teton for te...

Re: BFS rods: JDM v CDM

Thanks for this, I’ve been looking at other rods as I really like the native trout rods. I did part with my short BST rods and picked up the Tenryu Rayz as it reminds me of old graphite has good action but requires slower strokes to load properly.

had a chance to cast yet? interested on the performance.
Fished it a few days and was amazing, ended up moving it on as the rod it was meant for didn’t balance how I like.

Re: Longer ML spinning rod

Not a well advertised brand but Tenryu makes some nice rods and has a ML spinning rod that is 7’5” RZ75ML. I’ve owned both their spinning and now BFS rods and quality is second to none.

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

Got a new rod that is proving to be amazing, Tenryu Rayz 53UL-BC. Paired it with my Morrum first but it doesn’t feel right so put a Revo LTX-BF8 and that feels right. https://i.imgur.com/Vs5tv9z.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HL3l9fR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lVmhsxe.jpg Also minimized my selection to take o...
