Re: High Speed Reels 8:1 Plus?

I like to use fast gear ratios as much as possible. Other than my 4.9 Catalina and a 6.3 Tatula (BFS cranking), I use 7.1 and faster. For flipping, jigs and such I use at least 8.1. I echo above where bringing you lure through "dead water" with a fast reel really adds up. Leads to many more casts th...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Watching some of the videos online, spool is little heavier than 30mm KTF spool for Steez CT which is surprising. Also, drag star does not click and there is no audiable drag like in Steez CT. Makes me wonder if it will cast better than a KTF Steez CT? Spool weight is important but, can be misleadi...

Re: Snaps

Thanks for the info and recommendations. I understand the purpose of split rings allowing for more freedom, but wasn't sure if the shape, size, and added weight of a snap would hinder an already lightweight lure. For general bass fishing I was always somewhat discouraged from using snaps because of...

Re: Snaps

Try looking into the Cultiva Tairiki Snap size 000. They are TINY and do not hinder the action of lures like other snaps do

Re: RESUME

So, without going into a ton of detail... Military experience can be very broad or very specific. There are certain "easy" things that transfer like supervision, accountability and such depending on rank and other factors. Depending on the rank, you can always throw logistics into the mix. How many ...

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

You know what, maybe I will show up to the St Croix Factory and start asking questions Michael Moore style.

I did always want to go through the factory tour? Anyone in the area that would want to do a tour? Need 4 total (minimum) to do a tour.

Re: Thread finish epoxy

Definitely get fresh epoxy. I used some stuff I thought would still be good...it turned out brown. They are personal use rods so, I dont care too much.

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

I am new to Muskie fishing, picked up my first muskie rod, a St. croix Premier. But i quickly realized that they are HUGE in the musky world. They have 5 muskie rod series, which is a lot. Triumph Mojo Premier Legend Tournament Legend Elite and the upper ones are super popular. Especially the LT se...

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

They have introduced a few rods over 8' long after B.A.S.S moved the limit to 10' a couple years ago.

Re: What are you Skipping with?

I like using Strike King Structure Jigs. I like being on the heavier side (including plastic) of the rods rating to get the rod really participating. Most of my skipping has been with Daiwa SV reels. My jig rod is a 7'6" MH mod fast Legend Elite. I also skip a lot with my K2 714. Using the rod tip ...

Re: Steez CT TWS and Antares 70

What rod(s) have you used with the A-70? That would be an interesting side-by-side duel between these two reels. I have it on a poison Adrena 6’11” med plus rod I had a less time today but managed an hour casting and dialing it in It can cast a weightless fluke further then I’ve ever seen with less...

Re: EDGE RODS by Gary Loomis?

Thanks for the review. I have a first strike spinning model and it doesn’t feel very balanced. 200 is a hell of a deal. I caught one of their “sales” but paid quite a bit more than that for my BW. My black widow is still “processing” I am anxiously awaiting it for this season! ...you wont be gettin...
