Re: Guide Reccomendation

I'm not a rodbuilder, but a friend used tiny zip-ties to hold the guides for static load testing.

Need some help deciding. Straight or swept carbon handle.

If you go swept, you will need to find a swept star, also, unless you manually bend the tines of the stock star.

Re: TackleDirect Problems?

I bought a rod about 6 weeks ago with no problems. Hope this isnt the end, because they have some good deals every once in a while.

Re: Store brand rods and reels

I know a LOT of guys who tourney fish, and are really hardcore bass junkies, but they have no clue about all the enthusiast-level JDM bass tackle that's available, or that there's even bass in Japan. One of those guys is among the best fishermen I know. He uses Revo S reels and Duckett rods. You cou...

Re: Bearing number for an SLX drive shaft?

I have tried this on my slx and the BNT4194 does not fit. The cup that holds the bushing is rounded (the bushing is as well), so a bearing will not fit in that space. Has Shimano changed the design? Shimano does that to a number of reels, and has for several yrs now. It's an underhanded way to keep...

My mistake the Zillion Coastal ( now discontinued) was a step up in quality and a different animal.
I will agree with that, though the original was a solid reel for it's time.

Re: Store brand rods and reels

May I ask why you think inexpensive or store brand tackle isn't the target of this site? I'm not an owner and I don't want to put you on the spot, just wondering. I have to agree here. While the big 3 get a lot of press here, there are lots of reviews of small business products-rods, reels and vari...

Re: Super tough bite! Help

Suspended fish in clear water means free-lining a fat nightcrawler on very thin line. Even a splitshot or 2 is too much-you have to find the patience to wait it out. Once you get a couple, the school will usually fire up and you will have fish trying to steal artificials out of the mouth of hooked f...

Re: Favorite small spinnerbait

SK Micro King works very well for me. They run true, weigh 1/16 oz and are very reasonably-priced. I catch a ton of bass all summer long in my little ponds close to the house. With thin braid and a light drag setting, I've landed fish up to 5# with them, so they are also pretty durable to be so small.

Re: Original power pro vs Sufix 832

The 832 is smoother, so it should be less prone to wind and water drag, assuming the diameters are similar between the 2 lines. But if smaller diameter is what you're after, then I strongly suggest Sufix Nanobraid in aqua-camo color, 8# test. It's extremely thin and I like it a lot for all things su...

Re: ICAST 2019

Sure the Admira is light, but how many people really like flashy reels like that? Part of the reason I've stayed away from Daiwa is the flashy plasticky look that a lot of their reels, even the expensive ones, seem to have. So tell me what looks plasticky about this one. I'm not a flashy kind of gu...

Re: Help me decide, panfish reel.

Find another cheap Pixy and put another Ray's spool in it. No need for all the Pixzilla upgrades if you're fishing for panfish, just a dab of Cal's drag grease on that cork drag washer and a light drag setting, so you don't tear out that hook.

With made in Japan - stamp?
I think - NO, unfortunally.
Likely the same place of manufacture as the last Zillion iteration. I'm fine with that, the Zillion SV Tw is a really great reel.
