Re: Baitcasting Reel: Single knob handle instead of double?

There are always heavier duty reels like the Tranx that have a single balanced knob too. I think Shimano offers the HG version with a big single. Maybe some Lexa heavy duty reels have a single big knob too??? I know there was a Revo Toro that came with a single handle in the box.

Making Online Videos

Does anyone have suggestions for equipment for beginning online videos? I don't really have the best fishing here, so the majority would be equipment breakdowns/reviews, or simple tests. I also only have a laptop right now, so a stronger computer might be necessary. Just any base suggestions of what...

Re: (SUL) Super Ultra Light?

Yesterday I put Quantum Enerpy PT Burner to SUL Kuying Teton, just because Quantum is most compact baitcaster that I currently have (It's really low profile reel vs. Daiwa's). Heck, that reel was heavy :-) It is 7.8 oz. My idea was to put my sv tw Zillion (with BFS spool) to SUL Kuying Teton for te...

Re: My Ultimate NED setup!!!

Thanks, no rush here though. It will be a while before I buy any rods. Just had a tree land on BOTH of our cars. Sounds bad but both are drive able still. The 99' Chevy Blazer is pretty tough, caved the roof in a bit and still drives like new. Looks like hammered hell and creature comforts are all ...

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

From my best guess of reading Japanese, my box says there's 7 bearings. Thanks. If it has 7+1, they probably added one to the levelwind, normally the Scorpions are a slightly upgraded Curado. Also possible that the count is identical to the Curado K, and it was a simple misprint to list as 7+1 rath...

Re: My Ultimate NED setup!!!

Word. I have asked a few times before about Major Craft rods, knowing that might make me hunt a ML to eventually replace my TFO ML casting rod. The TFO has a very progressive bend for a "fast" so a Major Craft should fill the gap nicely one day. I am down to use most NED style heads, but I don't li...

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

From my best guess of reading Japanese, my box says there's 7 bearings. From the way the handle knobs turn, they feel like there's only bushings in there. As for the levelwind, I'm not sure on that on yet. I keep a pretty good stash of those bearings in the shop and I usually add them to all my ree...

Re: Shimano SLX XT

Shimano Australia has a new SLX XT casting reel. It looks similar to the new MGL but without the MGL spool. Shimano fanboy REELTEST bought one . He thinks it would kill off the Tatula if it comes to the US. :roll: Yeah I heard him mention that whole "KILL OFF" line. Kinda made me pause and say What...

Re: My Ultimate NED setup!!!

What model is that NRX??? I couldn't make it out for some reason... Also, to okie, what model is the MS-X? I was trying to figure that out myself. All I can tell is that it looks like it's 7' something". It's the 65L/BF. Using 8# J-Braid to 6# Invizx leader. It slings, pitches, and skips those Neds...

Re: '19 Scorpion MGL 150

I can't figure out the bearings on the Scorpion MGL. It is much like that Bantam MGL dilemma which never got resolved (claims 8 bearings on US website and schematics say 9, like JDM Bantam MGL's claim). The Scorpion MGL is different though, the Curado K has a 7 total system, which is the key most im...

Re: Issues with Tackle Warehouse

I ordered some of the newer owner weedless wacky and neko hooks, along with the new wide gap football finesse heads. Said they would be in stock around February. One day I checked the site and it said June 22. They had already refunded that portion of my order and followed up with a call to ask if I...

Re: Older Daiwa 7.x ratio reels

Yeah, unfortunately after looking more into what you meant by older, I am not sure any faster sets exist that I know. The TDX reels are interesting looking though, I like looking at reels that were before my time as a serious angler. I have always liked that one strange looking older Daiwa with the ...

Re: keitech 2.8 rigging

I recently bought a big order of the Decoy Nail Bomb jig heads, #1 and #2 hooks for the 3" and 3.5" Easy Shiners. The #1 also works okay for the 3.3" SI Fat, just doesn't really offer as much bite as the other jigheads I mentioned. This being said, I messed up and left a few Keitech's on the Nail Bo...
