Re: Boyd Duckett talks about his Classic win and the Revo's.

No, that's why God gave us reels with more than 5 pounds of drag pressure. This point can be argued all day long but I wont do it.

Re: Kistler's Graphite Plus rods?

I use a Graphite Plus 7'M Cranking Composite and I have no complaints. It is still a lightweight rod and I never have any questions or confusion about what my lure is bumping into under water. If you plan on using it for worming I would suggest saving a little longer and getting a Magnesium or a Hel...

Re: 3 Knobs and a Reel

wood.....everyone "and their dog" has seen cork knobs, sure they look good but I mean 99% of the people on this forum who choose to "customize" a reel put on corks, they get kinda old IMO. Ask yourself, 'Are you a leader, or a follower?', be a leader and go with something different, the wood knobs. ...

Re: Braid/Rod action

I use 50Lb braid on my 7'2'' XXH for fishing in grass. I use more of a "pop" hookset rather than crossing their eyes. But overall I would say a softer rod is more ideal, it lets the braid do more of the work if that makes sense. In essense I think either use a softer rod for braid and let the line d...
