Yes.. I know this is a shimano product support butt..... Since shimano bought out gloomis I figure you can provide some input. Gloomis no longer has the $50!no. Question ask replacement program and I see a $20 processing fee and may be additional charges if the rod is out of warranty. So my question...

If that's the case daiwas a winner over the curado e.

Curado d wins because its aluminum but looses on size.


I give my prediction on the shoot out. Daiwa lexa wins over curado d and curado e

Re: Lexa 100 vs curado 200 D

The lexa is made out of aluminum the curados after the d are graphite, unless I'm incorrect. you must be talking about the sideplates as the frames for both are aluminum. the sideplates on the curado E's were graphite. the lexa 100's gearside sideplate is aluminum, the other side isn't. I'm sorry I...

Big bait big fish?

Any validity to this big bait big fish thing? 78, 100, 110, 120, 130 , 135, 140 if your Fijian for a. Boat and can get to bigger fish then throw a 140 right but what if you fish from shore should one be throwing 135, 140 size jerkbaits? Or is it location, location location. Or does it even matter?
