A quality Needle Tip oil bottle???

Hey guys, I have several small tubes of Shimano bantam oil and wanted to put them all in one bottle with a needle tip applicator for oiling bearings. Do any of you know of a quality bottle for that purpose? I've found some locally but the quality is not there. Any suggestions would be awesome! Thank...

Steez is more finesse, and Met MGL more all around. I think the Met MGL is your answer.

Re: Which Baitcast reels for inshore fishing???

For me, a rod has four basic functions. It needs to be able to cast the bait you want to throw. Lighter baits mean you'll need a lighter action rod so the light bait can still load the rod on the cast. It needs to be able to set the hook that you're using. If you're using lighter line and a smaller...

Re: Which Baitcast reels for inshore fishing???

Any reels used for bass will work inshore, as long as your not trying to catch tarpon or large snook. I fish flats a lot and target reds, trout and flounder mainly, but always end up hooking into something a whole lot bigger. I use a Chronarch CI4 HG and a Metanium XG. I prefer the Ch. but the Met....

Re: Which Baitcast reels for inshore fishing???

Thanks guys for the info. I guess I'll just use my Shimano Chronarch 200e6 with a falcon bucoo rod, 7' mh action. It's my cheapest gear I have. I will probably only fish a couple of times a year in the salt so I'll rinse my gear off good and when I get home I'll break down the reel and service it. I...

Which Baitcast reels for inshore fishing???

Hey guys, I'm going on a saltwater fishing trip, mostly fishing inshore, and was wondering what baitcast reels you guys use? I have never fished saltwater, only freshwater, and was wondering if I needed to purchase a inshore specific reel or could I just use my bass fishing reels which are mostly Sh...

Thank you! Newer met looks cooler, but I feel this reel palms better for me. 99% of the time I'm fishing, no one is watching anyway, lol :lol:
