Re: New fireline fused 8 carrier

I’m partial being a former 4#, 6#, and 8# original fireline user but I think for light applications the Ultra 8 Fireline is the best spinning reel line I’ve found in the smaller diameters. That includes a lot of JDM lines that cost a small fortune. For me its awful hard to beat 6# ultra 8. It has s...

after about 2 1/2 days the zman baits is starting to stick to the baggie, feeling a bit greasy. still no color bleed or any problem with other baits at all. TRD does feel a bit greasy/slick.
It will happen. Been there, done that, have the T shirt. :lol:

Re: Time on the DL pays off

Nice! It will be a rush to catch fish with these complex and well-finished constructions. I've been making baits for a long time, and it's still a rush to get bit on one I made. I get the same rush if a buddy get bit on one of my baits. I am a retired carpenter, and none of the baits I make are tha...

Re: New fireline fused 8 carrier

Does the fused carrier have memory, like a monofilament or fluorocarbon line?

Time on the DL pays off

My sciatica put my on the DL, so I spent some time in the garage, once the pain went away.
Here's three 4" baits I made and painted.

I’ll probably just take my chances and give it a shot.
Just keep them in their original bags, keep them separate from regular plastisol baits, and you'll be fine.

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

Reverendo said "A last option would be to learn to cast. lol. But really, maybe I need to remove all brakes and just practice training my thumb..." That's basically what I did. I use just 2 of 6 brakes, and have my spool tension backed all the way off, so I can pitch easily. Instead of having to inc...

Re: Eliminating Backlash on Strong Casts

I would think the 30lb Samurai is way too thin if you're trying to cast a 1.5oz bait hard. It may be bedding in on the spool when you give it the extra power in the cast. Samurai is very over rated for it's diameter compared to most other brands, Spiderwire is the same. If you want to stick to Samu...

Acetone will attack EVA(and most other plastics), so not a good idea.
Oops. I forgot about that.
