Re: nanofil upgrade

Ok from my experiences Gliss is a little better than Nanofil when it comes to durability but not much, now for castability I think gliss is hands down much better. If you do try gliss just know if its half as strong as its rated. So if you want #20 line get 40, I mean under perfect conditions I'm su...

Re: BFS and PowerPro

I use 8lb powerpro on almost all my BFS reels but 2, 1 has 12lb Gliss and the other has 5lb Sunline Sniper but the other 4 have the powerpro. To answer your question, yes it will cast better with 8lb than it does with the 15.

There's a restaurant somewhere in Nebraska where you will find people waiting in a line around the block for carp. It looked breaded and fried to me. I'm pretty sure you have to use a pressure cooker because of all the bones.
BFS Carp fishing ??? I would imagine getting spooled a lot :lol:

Re: Talk me off the ledge please

The XF-50 is a good solid reel and I also have the Dragon rod but in 5' and love the action and feel of it, I think you made a good choice on a budget minded combo.

I'm with you, I want to like Shimano better and used to but I find myself owning and using Daiwa's way more.

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. I have ordered 2 from MaxCatch but haven't received them yet. I ordered a 9' 6wt and ...

Re: BFS rods: JDM v CDM

I have used a few Tsurinoya rods the dexterity, Dragon and the ProFlex II. I also have 3 Kuying Teton rods and I feel when fishing them and looking at them you wouldn't think its a Chinese produced product. For the money IMHO hands down the best BFS rod value out there comes from China.
