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

Re: G.Loomis/Shimano Swimbait Rod/Reel/Line Advice Please

For an affordable nice option I went with the Powell Endurance Casting Rod 7'6" Mag Medium Heavy, is rated to 3oz and have thrown 2.5oz baits on it. I have a Shimano Cardiff 301 spooled with 20lb SunLine Assassin on it. The whole big swimbait game in new to me and didn’t want to spend to much on my ...

Re: Shimano Citica,SLX or Casitas?

SLX hands down and if you can spend the xtra few $’s on the XT version, you will not regret it.

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

Chatterbait got me this one today on a very hot and humid day. I was throwing it on my old Conquest 101DC mounted to a Daiwa Tatula Elite Rod.

I know there are some decent casting rods for a good price like the kuying rods so I wonder if those rods can be good budget rods or whether they are just garbage.

Re: SV Light Limited

From all the 32mm spools, I prefer the SS Light Limited the best. I'm probably the odd ball here, but I didn't like the reel as much as I wanted to.
