Re: Vision 110 Jr hook upgrade(?)

Set your drag right and you wont bend out any hooks. Back around Thanksgiving, I landed a 6-13 bass on a lucky craft bevy crank with those tiny, wispy stock #8 hooks that came on it. This was with 8# nanobraid, also, so there was no cushion from line stretch. I actually had to cut one of the hooks o...

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

Are those big trout good eatin, or is that sacrilege? I always see the guys on TV giddy about keeping the small keepers for dinner. The smaller keepers taste much better than the bigger ones, and meat is a little tougher on the bigs. It’s ok to keep one, but most people don’t. I never keep trout si...

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Thanks again! going to let them know and see if they can get them ordered for me! Since I'm asking you so many questions do you have an opinion on the drag clicker mod? I like the drag clicker feature that comes stock on the Steez CT. It seems beneficial on a finesse reel with light line and low dr...

Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

Daiwa doesn't even know what market they are targeting. I think they are shooting for total market saturation with the Tatula name. It's gotten a bit old tbh, though I'm a fan of the 2019 Tatula myself.

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Sent an email to Tackle trap to see what they say but haven't heard from them yet. Plat did email back already and wants to know what part numbers i want. From looking at the diagram i need 57 which is the pinion and 81 which is the main gear. When you do a gear change is there anything else that n...

Re: Tat Elite vs Zillion SV

The Taula Elite is a much more comfortable reel. It is smaller in hand and sits lower in the reel seat than the Zillion SV TW, which is the same frame as the Tat CT. The Elite is virtually the same frame as the Steez A, which is very compact. I sold all my Zillion SV TW in favor of the 2019 Tatula T...

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Is it difficult to change gears in them? I will do some research but im sure there are write ups out there for this. If you have basic mechanical skills, a gear swap is fairly easy on most baitcasters. If you aren't comfortable, give Bryan a call at the Tackle Trap and they can do the work for you....

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Plat and Japan Tackle can both help. Email them and tell them what you need. Be sure to specify if it's a LH or RH reel. Both will source and price a gear set for you. Or you can do what I did....buy the other reel and swap gears. Sell the other one with the 8.1 gears. It will likely sell quickly, b...

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

I have 6.3 gears in mine for the same reason, because I am tossing moving baits like tiny cranks, curlytail grubs and small spinners exclusively. I swapped gears from an SS SV103H. Any of the SS SV gears will fit.

Re: SR 705R

I had a custom built on that blank and sold it. While it's a very nice rod and does cranks well, I just don't like glass/fiberglass rods.

That SV spool works very well in the Sol.
You just HAD to egg me on didn't you ? :lol:
Well, maybe a little. But I was seriously impressed with that spool's behavior in the Sol. Not sure if it has weaker magnets, but it seemed to really bomb even light stuff.

Re: Sunline Defier Armilo vs Sufix Advance?

I'm a fan of Sufix myself, but I didnt like the Advance. I will stick with Siege. The 8# Seige tested out at 12.2# breaking strength in independent lab tests, and I know from personal experience that you almost can't break off with 17# when you snag a stump on bottom. I partially straightened the h...
