Re: T3 gear swap

I just went with the 7.1 ballistic gears. Thought about the 1016 set, but it was $38 vs $20 and this is just a travel reel. My 1016 is 6.3 and I just needed to speed one of them up. Almost got the 1016 driveshaft, which was $21.50, but decided against it because I need that extra weight to balance m...

Re: Tatula rod

Yeah, they don't actually call it that, but it seems very similar to the steez with the same length and ratings. It's the lightest and best balanced (balances with SS SV) of the tatulas I've held and has the thinnest blank. It has the same alconite guides as all the other models, but the top two and...

Re: Tatula rod

I have the 761HFB, 711MHRB, 6101MHFB, 6101MXB, 771MRB-G, & 721MHRB-G. I haven't had any quality issues whatsoever despite a couple of them being accidently knocked around pretty good. I just got the med ex fast, so I haven't had much time with it. I like the way it casts and pitches and there was no...

Re: P3 Bearing Down Tachyon Hookset Special

Must be an extra extra extra fast, superluminal tip if they're calling it a tachyon. In theory, such a rod would actually allow the bass to escape to a safe distance before unsetting the hook you punched it through its jaw after it jumped out of the water (or livewell if it's tournament day) straigh...

Re: flick shake rod

I normally use a 6'5" ML ms-x. I do the same thing, just kind of let it load and then keep the pressure on. Although that 610 m/x megatop tatula seems really promising. Haven't had enough time with it to know, yet, but holy crap that rod is sensitive to bites and nibbles!

Re: Alphas SV105 reel foot finish

I just ordered on of these and I noticed it has two fewer bearings than the usdm version and weighs .1 Oz less, so I'm guessing it doesn't have any in the knobs like the ss sv, is that right?

Re: Alphas SV105 reel foot finish

Nothing wrong with battle scars, anyway. I had paint chip off the palming plate of my zillion tws inexplicably the first time out, but whatever, it's no shelf queen. Got that out of the way and don't have to worry how it looks anymore. It's got character.

Re: Tatula rod

All I can say is that Tatulas are hard to beat. Got 6 different models and each one is top notch in terms of construction and performance for their respective techniques. I really don't think you'll be at all disappointed with that heavy pitching rod. Don't have that one, though. I use the flippin s...

Re: Alternative to a Daiwa millionaire m-ito 103L

Luna? I got a new one for less than 150 shipped from a last minute eBay bid. Felt the need to go with a 1016 spool (requires a longer pinion shaft), a 100mm "Daiwa custom handle", and carbontex, and I'm look at a set of those hedgehog hd spool bearings, but even before all that, it was a great reel,...

Re: what line do you use for poppers?

Braid works great for me on most topwaters. Never really have any trouble at all throwing a binksy or spook. Not wounded spooks, though. I think those'll get tangled in practically anything.

Re: Seagar Red Label

I have some 10# for mag finesse type stuff on an extra fast rod and it's alright. It's invisible and holds a san Diego jam just fine. It's really stiff, though, which some say doesn't matter on a baitcaster, but I disagree. I have to keep the brakes up a little higher than I normally do with braid o...

In my experience it's pretty colorfast, way more so than 832.
