Re: JDM bottom contact rod

As it relates to bottom contact, I'd have to agree with the above comment regarding the RD. An interesting look is the new 2020 Olympic Vigore. They look great on paper, especially the 7'6 MH with its full cork, Ti/Torz Guide train, Torayca 1100G, carbon lockdown, manufactured in house in Japan. 126...

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

Mr. Hole hasn't chimed in, so Mr. Wall will have to do. (an exercise in writing I imagine) Sticking with your desired requirements (8'+, Substance over Style, 1/2 oz range, high-end, no semi-micro guides) One thing to keep in mind when looking at long rods is the handle length.

Re: flick shake rod

Broke my Megabass X4 HYENA Yuki Ito Special spinning rod today. What should I get for a new flick shake rod. Doesn't have to be Megabass. Does have to be a spinning rod. I'm not sure where Matt scrounged these up from, but they are a rare find that will not last long. There is the 7'4 and 6'10 avai...

Re: Seditions and some others.

Looks like the Crux Doomrider finally rode into town. Might need PN to mash together a Zillion to match this wand.

Sendo needs to get off his noodles and just re-release the spiral wrapped Cristobal already..

Re: Tackle Tour LIVE

It was super windy when I went out Sunday, and I can say that both the NRC001-M (and presumably PG) and Daiwa SV Light spools are both incredible for casting into headwinds and crosswinds and skipping. Like blow your mind that it works at all, not to mention the distance you get incredible. I secon...

Re: Fragment factory

Has anybody come across this Japanese rod maker? They look like some bad mfing rods. Being that this is TT, anybody handle one of these bad boys? If so, I’d love to hear any thoughts or insights about what these are like. Dom will chime in eventu...

Re: Daiwa Morethan PE Baitcaster...any other spools that fit?

If my memory serves me correctly the Morethan TW SV spool is 34MM in Diameter, but wider that the normal 34MM Steez type variants. I believe it is the same width as the 1500 Zillion TW 36MM spool. If you look where the spool fits into the frame on both sides you should see a line around the frame wh...

Re: 2019 Conquest DC Reviews?

I still find it amazing this reel is so rare in the USA. They are really not flying off the shelves in Japan. Of the many shops that I keep an eye on, they have moved pretty slow. There is a Rank A one on YJP with starting bid of $300, will be interesting to see what price it resells. They really n...

Re: Sunline Stuter

That someone was me. The TW reviews weren't exactly glowing, either. I'll pass. I think I'm just going to go back to 832 and pretend no other superline exists. I don't know what I'm going to do now. I used to use one of the other JDM, Varivas. They don't make it anymore, to my knowledge. Hard to fi...
