Re: Alphas air stream custom

Awesome. Thanks for the info. Im getting a ASC and I want to use it on a rod that I currently have a px68L on. If I like it I may let the px68 go but keep the extra i'ze spool I have just in case. Hello Chris I think I'm the guy your buying your ASC from. You should get it today I think and I'm sur...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

Have you used the Pixy i'ze spool in the air stream custom? If so did it perform the same as in a Pixy? Thanks Only briefly and it performed nicely as in my PX68: good control overall and stable casting with good handling of light lures when using the right rod. Distance is also good.. I do prefer ...

Re: Alphas air stream custom

It may be of interest to some: The Pixy Ize spool fits my Alphas Air Stream Custom, but the DIY spool did not. Have you used the Pixy i'ze spool in the air stream custom? If so did it perform the same as in a Pixy? Thanks Only briefly and it performed nicely as in my PX68: good control overall and ...

Re: 500 size shimano?

Also looks like the Sahara has a slower gear ratio but not positive on that one. Sedona 5.6:1, Sahara 4.7:1

Re: 500 size shimano?

The Drive gear is different and I assume a better material, the left side drive bearing is different because of the drive gear dimensions. I'm sure both are fine reels and I do have the Sahara and feel it was well worth the money I paid for it.

I'm really leaning towards the poison now, but at the price of the expride and the amount of guys talking highly of them, I might have to get one or two to replace some lower end rods I have.
I have 4 Expide rods and love them, very nice rods for the money.

Re: Higher End Rods

I think a Shimano Expride 6’10 M or Poison Adrena 6’11 M+ would look awesome and serve you well

Re: St Croix Mojo Inshore for BFS fishing

Thanks to everyone for your replies, I guess only time will tell when I get these rods how they will perform for me. No matter what I fish all water and all fish so I figure out some place for these rods How did the 7' Light do? What was the lightest you were able to cast? Thanks The rod action was...

Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

I been throwing the Drop Shot more and more every year, I still kinda hate it but it does catch fish for me. I don't like spinning gear so I have been throwing it on an old Conquest 51 mounted on a Phenix Feather 7'1 ML rod, It does ok but I know compared to modern reels it has a heavy spool and the...

Re: Chatterbait reel

I use a 14 Calcutta 101 spooled with 14lb SunLine Fuoro sniper on a 7'2 Shimano Exage MH rod, I don't think you need a special reel to throw Chatterbaits just get something your comfortable with and get to fishing.

Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

I did end up getting the 8.2:1 model for my frogging reel and I like it a lot. Casts very well and the reel feels good for a high speed hear ratio, I caught 1 fish with it and it was up in some grass and it definitely needs the drag locked down for that kinda work. I think I will upgrade Carbon drag...

Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

Its calling my name but no I haven't yet, It funny because the SLX and the SLX DC get a lot of love but the XT is the best value of the bunch and the best looking IMHO.

Re: Shimano Aldebaran Purchase

Digitaka is good but if I was ordering that many you might get a better deal at Japan Lure Shop and you will get a few free lures as well I just checked , japan lure shop is $17 more for the Aldebaran 50. Yeah, but for that $17 extra, you will likely get a $20 lure with the order. I always did when...
