Re: New to BFS, Reel that excels at longer casts?

My SS Air is very capable with 1/16 oz and up. I use it exclusively for small cranks, so I changed it out to 6.3 gears, but it came with 8.1 gears originally.

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Tried it, it will not work. The rivet that serves as a spacer is smaller than the inner tube of the diawa knob, so when you fit it in without a bearing, the knob rattles. I've had a handle that did that before. Assuming this handle is the same and that bottom part is also shorter than a comparable ...

I have a few of those small Slide Swimmers. They do catch fish!

Re: NRX 894

Most of my customs and a few of my factory rods are counterbalanced.

Do you stick the buzzbait outside of your car window while driving?
I did when I was a kid. It sort of mesmerized me at that time.

Re: Favorite type of topwater bait?

My vote is for the spook/sammy style bait. I like the explosive strikes you get on any topwater, but walking the dog with short or long pauses, trying to figure out a cadence that will make fish react on any particular day is what makes those the most fun, to me anyway.

Re: NRX 894C/Antares 70 balance?

Both the 893 and the 894 are very top-heavy, but the 894 is worse.

Re: concept z problem

Matt, I have eight concept Z reels. One of them, that I just put on a frog rod, doesn't go back into gear when I turn the handle sometimes. The thumb bar seems to rise up a little and not engage, unless I hold it down hard until the end of the cast. And, even then, it sometimes doesn't re engage th...

Re: Problem for ZPI RC 002 spool not compatible with TD ITO

Free-spool isnt a good indicator of a spool's performance, especially given that your spool has a fixed inductor.

Re: Lucky craft issues

Most suspending baits are designed to suspend in 50-60* water. Most sp baits will float at higher water temps.

Re: BFS Blanks for T Rig?

If you go with single-foot micros, the wraps are so small as to mitigate any changes in deflection characteristics. I do know that double foot guides stiffen a rod up. A couple of my customs have doubles up to where the blank really begins to flex, then singles on out. This gives a light tip for cas...

My approach was good though. I said hello my beloved help Meet ! However I think it sounded the alarm in her mind. Ne...

Re: BuzZbAit Question

Some swear by the sound of a squeaky blade or a blade tapping the head. I have some old buzzbaits that actually have a metal flap on the upright part of the wire. It hits the blade as it spins. I've caught fish on both types, but I dont have a preference on them and fish dont seem to, either.

Re: Swimbait reel

If you like a low profile reel, the Tatula 200HD is a great option. It holds enough heavy mono or heavy braid for 4 oz baits.
