JDM Rod for Finesse Jigs

Looking for a unique rod IMHO. Im using Dirty Jigs Luke Clausen Finesse Jig in 5/16 ( as reference. may goto 3/8 but if you've used this jig you know the even the light jigs have a stout - fish hook. ) Id prefer the rod have a full handle.. I think if the 853c was a full handle i'd be all over it.. ...

Anyone try the Yumeya shallow spool in the Bantam?

I wonder if it comes with the bearing in the spool....


You can remove the bearing but I have found that all they needed was flush and relube



I have the shallow spool
Did the shallow spool come with a bearing though?

Yes

Re: A Lesson Worth Sharing

My advice is along these lines... I know some people with more than a hundred ~$200 rods that complain and are envious of rods $400+++. They say they can’t afford them. ?!?!!?? Concentrating on getting 5-10 combos (or less!) that cover all your bases. Really with the same $20,000 (!!!) worth of rod...

Re: A Lesson Worth Sharing

I’m kinda baffled, you can’t be mentioning premium and then turning a blind eye on price :-s Also, I wouldn’t necessarily utilize “mass production” and then slip in Luxxe into the mix :shock: I see lots of subjectivity in your post, which is perfectly fine, but a lot needs to be taken into account ...

Re: ZPI RC-001 vs. RC-002

Of course I am still learning and surfing between ideas of what to write for this paper :-k I found a RC-001S MJR ZPI spool is this the same or different than the ZPI RC-001? This one has the same perforated inductor as the BE.. if that makes a difference.. because I did see one with a nonpreforated...

Re: Bantam MGL

I've put one on a Steez XBD rod with the yumeya shallow spool and 50 braid..
I like it better on this rod for frogs and for swim jigs.

One is on a flipping stick.. I have to see what I did with the other :-k

Re: RARE SPOOLs

It would seem counter intuitive to have such a robust reel like a monoblock and than buy a honeycomb spool. I kinda see it as a finesse spool but as of late I have been rethinking a lot of things so I call it by its nominclature more that what I think its for. This weeks lesson is economic growth, a...
