Re: Rethinking my Shimano Faith

jdp I know you fish and have different reels. Your opinion is your opinion and I am not trying to sway you. This is why we make different products to try and make everyone happy. Personally I am a huge believer in buy once, cry once. Buy the best you can afford or save up until you can afford what ...

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

Black, red, all metal colored on the original Bantams. But the green was the final trademark color after the Curado name was a full blown trademark. I have seen red Curados from way back, but I don't know if they were a JDM thing or not.

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

D was awesome. Just hated that they strayed from the "green" the reel is known for. Everyone has that something they don't like, right?

Re: Help me pick a reel!

The ChronarchEs are a great choice. Solid, smooth, and durable.

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

PS, graphite driveshafts are a real thing, they are carbon fiber wrapped for added strength. Correct, but the core is metal. And yeah, it would be a helluva of a fire, seeing what a burning metal engine looks like. An electrical + fuel leak fire in a plastic/carbon motor would be crazy + plastic/ca...

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

I was talking more of the lines of the intake manifolds and stuff that is not subject to friction heat. A plastic engine block? Lol. Though who knows with what's in store for the future. The molds of the plastic and the way its made can be just the same tolerance as the metal, and be cut/shaved to b...

Re: Rods vs. Technique

All of my rods are MH, but vary in XF, F, and Mod depending on what I'm using them for. Reels vary from Curado and Chronarch 200 and 50Es, CiticaE, and Bantam100B. Lines vary from 50# PowerPro, 15# and 12# YoZuri.

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

Ok, just my 0.02. I think the whole aluminum vs graphite side plates thing is over exaggerated. Do you really think the aluminum side plate makes a difference? Do you know how strong graphite really is. Corrosion resistance, graphite is way better. As far as strength, its just as strong. The way the...
