This reel is going to be dynamite for sure. I didn't see any problems with casting on the bantam mgl what so ever. I just wish they would make the handle lengths all the same size though for every gear ratio.

Re: 4000 Spinning Reels for 7'6" L Rods

I use a 2500 stella on my 901nrx and it balances pretty well, not perfect but pretty good, I also have a certate 3000
on a MB Flyssa and the balance is the same as my NRX combo.

I sell a lot of fly rods where I work and none of them are balanced if that helps your decision :big grin:

Re: Opinions on GLX Warranty Submission

It looks like a pretty clean break, I would send it in as normal warranty, although it might take a bit longer to get back. But if you are in a hurry and want no questions asked you can do the Xpeditor program. If you go normal warranty just explain what happened like you did here on the forum. Welc...

Re: Who makes the smallest split rings?

I have some Owner hyper wire barrel swivels that are a size 14, they look like a black ant.

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

I have 16 combos, 6 are ice fishing combos.

It all depends on what reservoir/lake/river that I'm fishing.

Re: Ice Fishing

I hope we get Ice soon.....the wait is killing me, last year I was already on the ice. We finally got over 4" of ice here this week, i had to drive a few hours north to ice fish earlier. Nice, we got 6" at one of our smallest reservoirs, I think I caught about 160 perch, 4 trout and 6 bluegill in t...

500 size shimano?

I was curious on what was the difference between the Shimano sahara 500 FI and the Sedona 500 FI for ice fishing.

I checked the schematics and can not find the extra bearing in the Sahara.. :-k

The Steez AGS is king of 7'6 spinning rods... and maybe all spinning rods in general...
Have you tried the 901 NRX?
