Re: Daiwa Sol Upgrades question

I'm loving the subtle color changes on the reel. After so many years the Sol just looks timeless.

Re: Braided line bad for your rods and reels?

I've never had issues with braid, when used appropriately.

But I can remember when braid was getting more popular, and people were using them on their GLXs... :crying:

Re: 2019 Best Buy

When Mudhole was clearing out blanks, I bought quite a few for $25 each. Very impressed in the quality so far.

But all in all, I stuck to my fishing budget in 2019.

Re: A classic rod and a new reel

I can't believe how much time has flown by since I first saw, and fell in love with that rod. Congrats!

Now to search for my Racing Viola Monoblock. :lol:

Re: NRX balance

Hold an 852 paired with a Pixy platform...
Hold an 873 paired with almost anything...
Hold an 893 paired with an Alphas platform...

Then fish with them, and you will literally feel and know the power of the dark side... 8-)

Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

I have two favs for mainly lighter baits. It's really about the taper, but sensitivity is always a plus.
1. X7 Shading-X for chatterbaits, Rip baits, and cranks
2. NRX 842 MBR for small cranks, and Scrounger heads

Re: Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

I know exactly what you mean, I’m the same way with my BDS1 baits. Although it’s not exactly what you are looking for, I don’t think you would be disappointed in the SKT mini. Even though it has a tight action, it works well in all seasons, and deflects cover like magic with the “square” bill. Fat ...

Re: Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

I don’t have an answer as to where to purchase, but those are definitely two different baits. The SKT is more of a flat side crank with a tighter action while the GDS has a round body and wide wobble. Really love those SKT mini baits. Thanks for the info. I am after a wider wobble round body bait. ...

Lucky Craft Gerald Swindle G.D.S. Mini DR Crankbait

Does anyone know if these can still be purchased? http://www.luckycraft.com/luckycrafthome/Products/crankbait/X/fatcbgdsminidr.htm I am also hoping that maybe Lucky Craft still makes them, but has changed the name to this instead? https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Lucky_Craft_Skeet_Reese_SKT_Mini_DR_C...
