Re: Spoon storage and hook swaps...

Love it! Just got a tenkara rod from tenkarabum and couldn't resist buying a couple of the 0.4g Daiwa Presso Vega spoons. No ultralight spinning gear to throw slightly larger spoons yet, I need to stop looking at this forum haha

Re: Aerosal Spray for Cleaning Bearings

And Shimano says no. So who' side is TT on anyway? I am seeing a conflict of claims and statements not being corrected. Tokugawa should "counter" this type of thing if Shimano says no. No means no. A company's recommendation for product X is not the same thing as saying only product X will work. Ca...

I think you may get this response verbatim for any solvent other than "a ------ ----- of ------- -----". Does Shimano recommend a soak in mineral spirits?

Reel for Aklys

I could use some suggestions on a reel to pair with the Megabass Orochi XX Aklys. In cold water months I plan to use this combo for small swimbaits (1 - 1.5 oz, braid to leader), but most of the time I will have a punch rig or heavy jig tied on. I generally lean towards Daiwa, but it seems like eith...

Re: Finesse Fishing.com

Just in case you're in need of a different way to catch fish, he has another site, tenkarabum.com, that is super informative. Lots of cool JDM gear. I'm planning to order a tenkara rod for some trips to the driftless area next year.

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I was excited when I saw so many new posts here, what a let down. Can we get this thread back on track?

I'd pick up darn near any variant of the new Tatula 100 frame that doesn't have the spider logo plastered all over it.

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

Snagged a used Megabass Orochi XX Aklys with the plastic still on the cork from eBay for just under $200. I've only had a chance to pitch a 1 oz jig around in the back yard and make a few casts with a swimbait at a pond on my way home from work, but my first impression is a very positive one. Just f...

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

Will be trying a custom 7'10 H X Ray blank by North Fork Composites. Building a minimum build. Feels like it has a lot of power and the taper continues past a fast when applying more pressure. Also build a "unique" finesse punching rod using a 7'6 High Modulus flipping blank from NFC and I extended...

Re: cranking rod

Another vote for the Dobyns Champion 704CB here. I would stick with the 4 power if 1.5 squarebills are on the upper end of your intended use. Great rod for 1.5s, DT4s, and jerkbaits (I use braid to 12# leader).

Re: Zodias glass rod action

I also hated the 7'6" Crucial model, the Zodias is SO much better if you're looking for a smooth glass feel. I bought it with good intentions but hardly ever use it, so I can't recall 100% but I'm pretty sure the blank incorporates glass into the same construction as the graphite rods as opposed to ...

Re: Cleaning Rods

I use soapy water on the blank and guides, and mr clean magic eraser on the cork. I try to stay away from any harsh solvents that may deteriorate the adhesive or resins. x2 on the magic eraser for cork. I bought some U-40 over the winter, and the magic eraser made all of my cork look brand new befo...
