Re: Opinion: It may not be worth it

My son will get the same treatment :lol: Apple doesn't fall ar from the tree. But maybe instead of a VW bug, ill make him purchase an old Civic instead. ;) Take a fishing reel apart and make him put it back together before take him fishing again... then you'll have your own fishing reel maintenance...

Re: Opinion: It may not be worth it

A Honda Civic and a Porsche will both get you there. I Porsche is a heck of a lot more fun to drive though. When the Porsche works... :lol: I personally have gone through all the regular gear, then high end gear etc... I buy what I WANT to afford, I don't purchase stuff that I can't bring myself to...

Re: Shimano reel names

What's in a name?

Does a z matrix cross wrap, unobtanium fused rod, called an Chupacabra Slingshot Exxxtinction Level Event Phase x13 Gremlin Vega Yugo Type R sound better? :lol:

I agree some names suck, like deep throat custom suck...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Because of the unstable and unseasonably cool weather it's been a tough finding the big 'uns this season so far, so I've been doing a lot of ultralight & BFS fishing. One lake in particular I fish is an excellent lake for this because of the large variety of fish. You truly never know what will bit...

Re: American Tackle G2 Carbon Handles

How did you do it? 1st inner hole for ULH and then shaping outer dimension for perfect? Looks very good! Yea. Bore the ID to fit the hood, then turn the OD. I made bushings to hold the acrylic on my 1/2" mandrel. It is quite thin once shaped to the proper size. https://i.postimg.cc/jdstcw4Y/2020040...

Re: American Tackle G2 Carbon Handles

Please do. I'd much rather use the Ecs, rather than taking a gamble on one of the AT seats. Never tried any of them. https://i.postimg.cc/65ZjZc85/20200417-162716.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/Qd0pKKJd/20200516-105823.jpg https://i.postimg.cc/GmcFpxYf/20200516-105813.jpg That hood though!

Re: Need Help, New Spinning Reel

Don't know what rod you are using, but I would also say the new Certate. All of my older Certates, have never let me down, and are still smooth as the day I bought them. If you don't want to spend the extra coin, the Daiwa Tatula is a lighter alternative. But if it were me, I would hunt down a used ...
