Re: Fury 705cb??

Perfect!

I'm trying to drop a rod and pick up something that will basically cover everything down to 10', and from there go to my deep crank rod. Right now I'm using a 7'2 mh steez, but it's a bit stiff for the 1.5's.

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I'm just guessing, but I would think the gen4 uses basically the same frame as the new lews & bps reels. I have the carbonlite 2.0 on my plastics rod and the alx on my jig rod, and while there is a difference in size it's not a lot. I do prefer the Abu, as it has a flat front piece on top of the ree...

Fury 705cb??

Anyone here have this rod? I'm needing a 7' m+ cranking rod that will handle 1.5, 2.5, and pretty much anything down to 8-9'

Re: Have you guys ever had this problem with shimano reels?

Things like that only happen on the "junk" reels doesn't it?? :lol:

Of course, I'm just kidding. I'm neither snob or cheapskate, I use whatever.

I came across your videos a couple of weeks ago. When I heard you mention TT, I figured you must be a member so I subscribed.

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I wouldn't let the braking scare you off of these reels. I got to fish the reel this weekend and had no problems at all...other than getting rained on!

Btw, where are you located?

Re: Tasty vs assassin

Thanks for thr response. I'm not unhappy at all with the assassin, but Tatsu has still got the "best fc" hype. I may try some if I catch it on sale

Tasty vs assassin

I've been using 17# assassin and really like it, but the Tatsu is still kinda nagging at me. Guys that have used both, is there enough performance difference to justify the cost? I would be going with 20 in the Tatsu

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I got the alx in yesterday and really like it! I haven't fished with it yet but pitched around with it enough to get it dialed in. I will probably replace 1 more reel with another alx.

Re: Delta blanks

I have 4 Deltas and bought them because someone on this forum said they were like IMX blanks but not sanded and he said he got that info from talking to someone at NFC on the phone. Well, NFC updated their website and have a more specific description of the deltas and it's a surprise to me that the...

Re: Kastking reels

I haven't used one but it seems they are totally polarizing as it seems like people say they are the best reel ever made or total crap. Now I am pretty sure they aren't on par with a Curado, Tatula, or something of that caliber but would they be a good reel for someone on a tight budget as a better...

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I've got 1 of these coming in this week. I ended up needing a lighter reel for a rod that just feels a little heavy with a tat SV on it. I've had no problems with all of the OEM reels I've got that I assume are doyo. That includes a gen 1 revo premier, gold carbonlite, 3 of the pro qualifier tournam...

Re: Tutula SV TW review... what did you mean?

I've had 6:1 (gave it to a friend) and just got in 2 of 7's, and I'm pretty impressed with these reels. Definitely a solid product

Re: anybody pour brush jigs here?

I'd like to thank cadman again for providing exactly what I was looking for. I have more success throwing the brush jig in my area, but was looking for something more for a casting jig in late fall & winter. I received the jigs from him yesterday and they're perfect!!
