Re: 7-8 foot bfs rod?

I look forward to receiving the Super Suspender, which is short for your liking and with a high glass content (not ideal for jig fishing?). I do not believe that you should give attention to the lower end casting weight of 0 gram, which is just this one brands way of saying that the rod handles low...

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

The combo for UL fishing is almost ready. All I need is the fishing line, so please give me some tips for a thin and soft fluorocarbon. Thanks !!! https://i.imgur.com/786UyZk.jpg Fluoro is not typcially soft and thin, I would recommend a Nylon if you want soft and thin. I’m a big fan of Varivas Nyl...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

7 miles of walking streams yesterday, caught this guy after hiking about 2 miles back. He smacked a Duo Ryuki Spearhead Awabi 60mm.

Wondering if anyone here has weighed the 16 Aldebaran BFS handle and knob? I'd love to know how many grams.

Thanks.
If no one responds before tonite I can remove the assembly from the test reel I have here and weigh it.

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: BFS rods: JDM v CDM

Thanks for this, I’ve been looking at other rods as I really like the native trout rods. I did part with my short BST rods and picked up the Tenryu Rayz as it reminds me of old graphite has good action but requires slower strokes to load properly.

had a chance to cast yet? interested on the performance.
Fished it a few days and was amazing, ended up moving it on as the rod it was meant for didn’t balance how I like.

Re: Longer ML spinning rod

Not a well advertised brand but Tenryu makes some nice rods and has a ML spinning rod that is 7’5” RZ75ML. I’ve owned both their spinning and now BFS rods and quality is second to none.

They canceled it again, so guess there are some issues.

Re: BFS and Trout baitcast combos

Got a new rod that is proving to be amazing, Tenryu Rayz 53UL-BC. Paired it with my Morrum first but it doesn’t feel right so put a Revo LTX-BF8 and that feels right. https://i.imgur.com/Vs5tv9z.jpg https://i.imgur.com/HL3l9fR.jpg https://i.imgur.com/lVmhsxe.jpg Also minimized my selection to take o...

Rakuten Order

Anyone ever place an order for one thing and the order confirmation comes for something different? Ordered a specific spool and the order confirmation came for a different model. I have emailed them but we will see what happens.

Does it have a BFS spool in it?
It does now along with HH AirBFS bearings, lower HH Thumb Bar, New Avail Swept Handle, New Knobs. I was able to find the Avail ZXMG1628R spool for it. Also have the 4mm deep 1648R spool also but I prefer the 2mm version.

Re: Smallmouth Trapara and Troutino

Curious as I have only focused on BFS Trout fishing but have to travel though I live with tons of smallie streams in the town I live in. What would one look for in a rod in the 5.5’ range.

Re: Boca A7 Orange Seals?

Just wanted to update that I got my Boca A7 Orange Seals today and installed them on the 2mm shallow spool and holy cow what a difference over the HH ZR bearings. HH was kind enough to round up the parts so I will have a set of AirBFS bearings arriving at some point to test out as well and if they a...

Let the tuning begin...

Got my hands on an Abu Ambassadeur Morrum and it feels like a great match to my Smith BST43UL/C3 trout rod. Needs some tuning still with some BFS bearings, going to test some Boca A7 OS to start with while Akira over at HH works on getting a set of AirBFS bearings for me. Also thinking of swapping t...
