Re: Vision 110 Jr hook upgrade(?)

I landed a 14 lb northern pike on a 110 with 6lb test on a medium light spinning rod. The hooks help up fine. I usually fish 110's on 8LB fluoro with a medium power rod. Make sure you set the drag accordingly. Heavier line with too much tension on the drag will bend those hooks as others have said.

Re: Prescription Sunglasses?

I have Costa 580G with progressive lenses. I went through my eye doctor and it took about 3 weeks to receive from Costa after the order was put in. They are fantastic but very expensive. May I ask what you paid for progressives? And do you get the option of different tints? Thanks. $800.00. You can...

Phenix K2 Torzite Casting Rod 7'1" Med Lt

I've read the TT review of this rod and it seems like it would be what I'm looking for. I have a few ...

Re: Line Conditioner

I use KVD line conditioner on spinning reels with fluoro and it helps prevent those dreaded loops. I can't imagine it effects sensitivity but who knows. How could you even measure the effects as sensitivity?

Re: Your favorite rod taper for Jerkbaits

Fast if using a medium power rod. Mod-fast if using a medium heavy.

Re: Super tough bite! Help

I have had success on schooling smallies using a soft swimbait on a 3/4oz jighead. Count it down and reel it back with a painfully slow retrieve. Also, try a 1oz spoon. Get over top of the school, jig it at the depth they are holding at, and see if they respond to it.

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

I'll also add that if you can't catch them on a 110 or pointer, I don't think switching to another bait will yield the results your looking for. Both are top notch and produce fish all year long at every lake I fish.

Re: Good jerkbait that’s better than a 110 or pointer?

For the last few years, every time i don't use a vision 110, i ask myself why am i wasting time. All the squadminows, reranges, shadow rap shads, etc are a no match for the vision 110's. I still use em because they're cheaper, but if i could, i'd use the 110's exclusively. The way they slash in the...

Re: Opinions on $250-$350 reel

Look in the classifieds for a SV 103 XS. They are easily in your price range and are great workhorse reels with lots of spool options. I have purchased a couple new in box from the classifieds.

Re: Jackall Rerange 110

I've had a couple months fishing with the Rerange 110 and 130 with great success. The stock trebles need to be changed as they snap off easily. I replaced them with Owner Stinger #6 trebles and even though they are heavier, the action does not seem to be effected.
