Re: Recommend $100 UL Spin Rod for Minijigs and 2 lbs test?

THanks. Keep the recommendations coming....:) Will check both suggestions now. Alibaba has the Kuying TTS642UL - tubular, not solid top. But with Fuji KR concept guides and Toray carbon fiber and 65 grams (2.3 ounces) for a 6' 4". He could almost get two for the budget....:) Anyone tried this? ...

Anyone use the Daiwa Presso Travel UL 4 Piece Rods?

I flexed some at a local store and was impressed by the power to weight ratio. The 7 footer weighs under 3.1 ounce though it feels quite tip heavy. The blank is stiffer than I'd have thought for a sub $80 rod. Looking at the guides, it seems that I can lighten the tip heavy feel quite a bit by repla...

Recommend $100 UL Spin Rod for Minijigs and 2 lbs test?

A friend at church on a limited budget (married, baby, etc) is looking for a spinning rod for minijigs (rubber jigs with lead head) for $100. This is for wide open lakes so sensitivity and casting distance matters using 2 lbs test. I think that the ideal lenght for him is probably around 6 1/2 to 7 ...

Re: Testing 2018 Lunakia and 18 Corto.

Alphahawk, that Drum is something else on 2 lbs test. Did you try the Lunakia with for trout or was it just the Corto? I would assume the Corto is more sensitive for jigs...? It sure if fast action.

Craigthor, I hear you with your spoons - perhaps Lunakia over both Cortos... :)

Re: Ultralight casting goals...

You guys keep coming with interesting threads..... My 'guess'. I've thought that for max casting accuracy, one should have the most feel with loading that more graduately increases and decreases over a large arc for the most feedback to one's nerves so that one knows exactly what the tip/lure is pos...

Re: Ester or PE Braid?

Spela, I do something similar to you. Think you spooled it correctly. My take is that the line is stiff so it is like a wire and will spring up. I've not used mine yet....

Alphahawk, does the line behave better after break in? (Less jumping off the spool - softer, less like a wire?)

Thanks

Re: Most sensitive JDM rod for crappie?

Alphahawk, is the DRIFT a Mebaru or a Ajing action? (moderate vs ex fast).

Thanks.
