Re: OG Fuego

One of my Fuego's has 5.7 TDZ gears and a 100M spool. It is a dedicated deep cranking reel. It is as good as it gets.

Re: TD-Z swept handle and spool options

Do you have any issues with the drag star rubbing on the cast control cap? I put a Zaion drag star on one of my TDZ's but it rubs the cast control cap. The long arm stars (Zillion Type-R, Zaion Tatula) tend to barely have enough clearance on some cast control caps. The old Hedgehog Studio cast cont...

Re: Ordering from Mudhole

Out of stock items are a pita, just like everywhere else. This is one of the joys of going custom ](*,) . Sometimes you have to wait for way too long to finish a build.

If your wardrobe is anything like your tackle color choices, you are a straight-up pimp! :D I like the original variations! I'm not a follower either.

Re: Where have all the Full handle Rods Gone

Any technique that requires a longer handle tucked under your armpit is substantially more comfortable with a full grip. You'll notice that swimbait rods with longer handles rarely have a split grip. A split grip is okay for shorter handles where the rear handle is not tucked under your armpit (i.e...

Re: Where have all the Full handle Rods Gone

Fenwick re introduced their Techna AV series as the Techna PX series with 3M Powerlux resin. These are full handle cork rods. The Techna AV was the best line of rods ever made by Fenwick in the early 2000-2007 time period and were very popular amongst the BASS/FLW pros during that time.and the firs...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

I really dig that Alphas. Blue is my jam - looks similar to my Steez. Who painted it? Thanks! I believe it's a Calfish paint job, it was also tuned and polished originally at TT before I bought it from it's previous owner. It's a really unique color as the paint can appear purlple, to blue ,to redd...

Re: Dream Trip

As a teacher, I have the ability to take my dream trip every summer. My bucket list includes the Great Lakes region. The long drive has kept me from doing it. An RV for this purpose may be in my future. I like to fish out of my own boat. I'll do all of the Great Lakes in my own boat someday. There a...

Now KVD! WTF! All of our angling heros can be bought! :lol: Quantum to Lew's is an upgrade imo...haha I think that this move likely tells us that there really isn't that much money in rod and reel sponsorship, or else KVD wouldn't have made the move. Does anyone know if Quantum is in financial trou...

Re: Sunline Stuter

So what didn't it do that you desire? What people want in a braided line is extremely subjective. People get very little from your post if you don't tell us what we might like or not like about the line. Please tell us! This helps us make more informed decisions.

Re: spinning rod suggestions?

The Fuji VSS with the nut down is my spinning seat choice. The good thing about custom is that you can go minimalist (my preference), or you can add all of the Matagi bling and fancy wraps to get your rod to Megabass style. Make sure that you have a builder near you if you decide not to do it yourse...

I really think it is just about money, not product. For the right money I would certainly change brands, of underwear or almost anything else.
Let's not go to far! It's hard to fish with a wedgie :D
