Re: Slp g1 CT shallow spool in 2020

It should be fine in Steez/Millionaire/Alphas CT. I have swapped standard spools, SLP “deep”, Roro, and KTF spools between my Steez and Millionaire with no issue. Alphas is the same...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

It may be of interest to some: The Pixy Ize spool fits my Alphas Air Stream Custom, but the DIY spool did not. Have you used the Pixy i'ze spool in the air stream custom? If so did it perform the same as in a Pixy? Thanks Only briefly and it performed nicely as in my PX68: good control overall and ...

Re: Tackle box for air travel

I usually pack my travel rods, reels, lure boxes, and all accessories in a large hardcase trolley and bring separate backpack/packs for day-trips. I have Meiho Versus Bucket Mouth 9000, which is a very solid tackle box with room for plenty of tackle. https://www.versusmeiho.com.au/products/meiho/sto...

Rule of adjectives

Musings from a quiet night shift (while browsing for fishing pliers and various tackle accessories): Any piece of tackle or tackle accessory with “deluxe” (or similar) as part of the name is most likely utter crap. Any piece of tackle with a difficult to pronounce name or weird abbreviation is more ...

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

My greatest wish is for me to “be OK” with mixing ABU/Daiwa/Shimano reels and rods - it would make my life easier and my wallet thicker... Same here. I have wished for that same thing many times. Since I swap reels from Shimano to Daiwa and back so often I've had to resort to only buying rods that ...

10 for originality. You have big huevos if you painted your Daiwa to match that ABU rod, and you are willing to show it off on TT. :D Either way, good job!

Re: Show off your BFS Casting Reels

Nice setup. The rod is a ABU Troutin Marquis. However, the series include a few different rods and also telescopic rods. They were among the first JDM trout rods that I looked at but I have never held one in hand.

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

I have the E6X MBR903C and i love it. its 7'6 and one piece. it is also offered in IMX Pro which is higher end than the E6X. One thing i would not want is a two piece rod. 1 piece is still way better even with modern ferrule design IMO. just food for thought. In Europe, 2-piece and multi-piece rods...

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

Many of the recommendations given here are great rods - but not all are good for throwing 1/2 oz. Especially if you fish inshore, as I do, and you want some distance. IMO, you really want a rod where 1/2 oz is more or less in the middle of the recommended lure weight range. The blank needs to load w...

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

I would be looking at salmon steelhead rods, also eging and seabass rods from Japan. I use the St Croix Avid and Legend Elite “freshwater” rods in 8’6” to 9’6” in various power ratings for fresh and inshore saltwater fishing here in Denmark. Wonderful rods, great components, with a classic build an...
