What type of bearings?

Tatula SV casting distance.

Anyone else a bit disappointed with the casting distance on the tat SV? Skipping is cool and all but I just feel like it lags behind my 13 inception, Curado K quite a bit in casting distance, even with a senko.

Re: Metanium MGL gear swap

Personally I don't get the point of using an aluminum gear in a flagship reel to save only .3 oz.

Champion 734 vs Sierra 734

Do you guys think the champ is worth the upgrade? TW has a killer deal at $120 for sierras right now, but i have been eyeing a champ 734 for a while. Will be an all purpose rod.

Re: What's next for Shimano???

Maybe a new rod series/ The expride has been a home run so it wouldn't be surprising for them to add a new higher end rod.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

Does anyone have experience with the new Orochi XX braillist? Seems like a more bottom contact oriented version of the EMTF. how might it compare to a DX744?

Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

The bait monkey has started biting and I am getting curious about some of the rods in the 250-300 price point, for an all purpose rod in the 7-73 range, with the potential to handle keitechs, jigs, texas rigged craws, etc. I am most interested in -Expride 72mh -Champion XP 734(probably full handle) ...

Re: What's next for Shimano???

The Citica is definetly due for an update, though that isn't exactly the finesse reel they are talking about.
