Re: Daiwa's new reels for 2014

I'm in line for SS SV and Tatula JDM

That feature (Speed shaft) looks really promising in SS SV. I wish they would make that reel with T-Wing system.

Re: Importing JDM reels

Even if they do, it much cheaper to buy them from Japan.
Look up Shimano JDM prices here, and how much they cost in Japan.
Shipping time is about the same.
The only thing I would request,what I can use a warranty on my JDM reels here in Daiwa US service center, instead of shipping a reel to Japan.

Re: XPOD

I doubt it helps. I'm kinda lazy to retie lures all the time, this is only why I use a snap, it's just quicker.
With tying directly you shouldn't have any issues, might be even better action.

Re: Beginner Jerkbait

I didn't want to scare him with the price. They are in my opinion the best there is but probably too expensive if you don't have confidence with a jerkbait. I think this is the best way to get that confidence :) If TS fishes in clear water chances to loose it almost a zero. I use jerkbaits a lot, b...

Re: Beginner Jerkbait

If you fish for bass, I would buy a Megabass Vision OneTen jerkbait.
Proven killer for catching bass.

+1 For Hedgehog Alchemy

ZPI F-0 Pro Series Extra long Cast or Nano Finesse also should be good.

Re: Vision 110 question

You don't have to use a split ring if you use a snap. If it comes with a split ring I always remove it. I noticed, most 110's I ordered from Japan, came without split ring.

Re: What size hooks on Megabass 110 Jr.?

That topic has info about what VMC makes hooks for Megabass. http://forums.tackletour.com/viewtopic.php?f=49&t=49068 I doubt Megabass makes own hooks, or any terminal tackle for themselves. I recall Megabass told be long time ago what they use VMC outbarbs for Vision Oneten, but I don't have that in...
