Re: What's next for Shimano???

I wish they would have the optional cover for that dial. Less chance for other debris to get and collect in them. Even if it's fish slime.

Re: Good crappie rod?

I typically wouldn't mind the 1000 size reels. If bobber fishing, I step up to next size up reels, maybe even 4000 size if needing to bomb a big bobber. Smaller waters, easily a 6' rod or shorter anywhere from UL to ML in power. Longer casting 7' rods or longer. Sometimes I only need a 2' bobber dro...

Re: A Good Braid for Spinning Reels...

The whole reason I use a leader or topshot is to reduce the wear and year that comes easily with light braids.

Re: Tackle storage for bank fishing

It's Dyneema tradename renamed as IZANAS.

Re: Daiwa J Braid x8 Grand

Again I'm not testing actual line strength but testing the knot and line as if I would fish with it so it has a real world application for my reference. The remaining Diawa braid lines came in the mail. So quick line strength pull test. Well after removing the spools from the packages and to my find...
