Re: Has anyone put a clear coat on their TD Ito?

A few years ago I had the same idea. I tried it on the left sideplate on a RH ito. It looked good, but it started peeling pretty quickly to where I eventually just rubbed the rest off. I'm not a painter and just sprayed it on with no prep work, so maybe that's why it peeled.

Re: Shattered my P3 Bearing Down

I've bought several Megabass rods thru Gary and unfortunately, broken a few. Between Gary and Megabass USA, the warranty process was not only painless, but actually enjoyable and I received replacements much faster than I would have expected. Phenomenal folks to deal with!

Re: Steez Rattling

If you remove the sideplate, use a small screwdriver to press the tabs against the frame. That should tighten it without having to glue it.

Re: Tackle Trap/Pike Road Reel Service

I'm very surprised reading this as my experiences with Bryan servicing one of my reels and answering questions about others and numerous transactions with Gary, have all been outstanding. I won't hesitate to do business with both in the hopefully near future. Dan

Re: **New set of MB offerings**

Like Teal, I've broken a few as well. Both Gary at The Tackle Trap and Catherine at Megabass were incredible to work with and I was amazed at how quickly I received replacements. Customer service at its finest!

Re: carrying spare baitcaster spools

You can fit 3 or 4 spools in a hard glasses case. Add some packing material and they won't move around. Works well for me.

Re: Goodbye Gander Mountain

Same here in Waukesha, WI. I went specifically to buy some Missile Baits Ike's mini flip jigs and they had raised the price from earlier in the year, so it looks like they were offsetting the 15% off.

Re: Best bottom contact rod for under 150$

timsford,

I haven't thrown any moving baits on it, just 1/4-1/2 oz jigs and t-rigs. It's a more moderate fast action and not a broomstick, so I would think that either the MH or H action would work for you. You might ask Gary, I'm sure he can better answer. Dan

Re: Best bottom contact rod for under 150$

Based on talking with Gary, I picked up the 6'9 H. I wanted something under 7' for close quarters pitching and this thing fits the bill perfect. Crazy light (3.4oz) and very good balance and sensitivity. Also didn't hurt that I got a couple in the 5lb range the first time I used it :) Very pleased, ...

Re: Preferred reels for distance

I have the Steez T-wing and have used 12-17lb flouro - no issues at all with uneven line wrap. I've only pitched with it with 1/4 to 1/2 oz jigs and trigs with it and it's awesome. Didn't have to adjust the reel for the different size line or jig. Best Steez by far and I've owned most of them. Dan

Re: Welcome back Japan Tackle!!

Years ago when I discovered Japan Tackle I thought I had gone to tackle heaven! I actually had the pleasure to talk with Jun on the phone to discuss a trade when he was still living in the states. Jun and Kayo are outstanding people.
