I always liked that.

Saving rod with one guide.


Also a reel mount too..

Man even with one broken guide tip. Kite fishing should be fun lying flat on the ground.

Anymore ideas?

Re: Is it Daiwa, Shimano, or someone else?

My name says it all. Daiwa for thier looks and because of their magnetic braking system. Shimano reels have a tighter tolerance I like the new Shimano exterior adjustable braking system o the CuradoShimanos. Wish they would have kept the aluminum side plates. Makes for more of a quality reel. Diamon...

Fishing rod materials

So what the ideal material for fishing rods?

I'm confused as does the material in a fishing rod make a big difference in fishing.

Ok sure carbon is light but Fiberglass is also light and glass more flexible.


What Do you more experience rod experts have to say?
