U-40 pros and cons

What do you think? Does it actually work and if so, are there any drawbacks? What's the best way to apply it?

I feel like sealing cork is one of those things people do just to be safe without really thinking about it, so before I follow suit I'd like to know why.

Thanks!

Quite possibly! Looks like he lost a leg in the process.

Re: Maxima Braid 8

832 is hard to beat, especially for the price. I've tried other lines that seemed just as good or better at first, but after a fair amount of use flaws become apparent that 832 doesn't seem to suffer from. I don't know if it's that gore fiber or the coating or what, but it really is great line. I wi...

Re: Alphas sv105

My sv105 really needed to be serviced from the factory. I upgraded the spool bearings to HH Air, cleaned and relubed the gears and worm shaft with SLP 104 grease, added a little oil to the pinion bearings because they were too stiff. I haven't had to update the sv ramp yet, but I have one waiting in...

Try it with the stock bearing after you flush it and put done light oil on it, you might be surprised.
Alright, I might as well give it a shot. I don't have a bearing for it yet, anyway.

Re: ZPI RC-001 vs. RC-002

Take extra care when removing the shaft pin - the spool shaft is made of duralumin, which is softer and easier to damage then the shafts in the regular Daiwa spools. Does anyone know if this is the case for the NRC spools as well? Yes sir, aluminum spool shafts on the M and PG spools too. The gold ...

Re: RARE SPOOLs

I dont think that anyone has mentioned the Carrozzeria Honeycomb Spool for Monoblock. Retailing at over 30k yen, it's the most expensive spool in it's class that I have found. I've yet to figure out why it's priced 12k yen over the other MB Honeycomb spools. It does wiegh in at 8 grams, which is li...

Also, always always always put some electrical tape on the lip of the spool underneath the tool. Otherwise you will scratch it.

Re: Help with my Sol

Since I last posted here I've acquired a zonda honeycomb spool, thanks Winstondry, and IMO it is made for use with ML-M rods, 1/8-5/8oz or more, 8-14# or 20-40# braid. It is awesome for spinnerbaits, keitechs, and other typical bass baits that aren't particularly aerodynamic. I haven't tried skippi...

^^^I'm with you, Tony.^^^ Don't sell the honeycomb spool. Keep it and just buy the SV105 spool, if that's what you want.
👍Good advice, Tim Dog. I'm pretty sure the sv105 spool is a little shallower, so maybe just get both and use 15-20# braid on it and 8-12# fluoro on the honeycomb? Just an idea.

Ba haa! That guy is hard core. He blows away anything under 4 pounds.

He normally only throws tungsten, but if it's a dink it gets the lead, baby!
