+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...

Great fish and fishing!!!

How would you rate snook vs. sea trout by pound per pound fish size? Are they better fighting?

Re: What size hooks on Megabass 110 Jr.?

Yes, they are #8 regular barb VMC, but if you compare them to Owner ST-36 #8, Owner #8 would be a little bigger.

Re: zoom trick worm, float or sink?

I use Trick Worm a lot, best worm IMHO. Always carry several bags in different colors. Yes, they are inconsistent. Some of them are tail up on a shaky head, some not, but all of them are sinking, never seen a Trick worm floating on surface.

Re: Shipping from Japan

Never paid any custom fees.
The seller maybe had experience with buyers from other countries. Some countries charge it on any purchase.

Re: Need help "switching hands" (righty to lefty)

I am right-handed, use only left-handed reels (spinning or baitcasting). I have much better feel (sensitivity) , control, and power to fight a fish with my right hand holding a rod. Doesn't make any sense to me to hold a rod in left hand and reel in by right hand. Seen several times, when co-anglers...

Re: Gear Ratios?

I use a 7.1 or 8.1 for everything. If I need to slow down, I reel in slower. The difference between 8.1 and 6.3 is around 20% in IPT. When I need to speed up (the lure is out of strike zone), it quicker to get a lure back with HG reel. Anyway, HG reel are more versatile. Same with the cars, I would ...

Re: Anatares & Metanium (USA)

Which Japanese store? Do search at rakuten.co.jp, amazon.co.jp there are many of them, some shops only ship to Japanese address, you have to use forwarding mail service, I have friends in Japan - use their address. The shops which ship directly to US sometimes out of stock on some of the hot reels.

Re: Anatares & Metanium (USA)

Look's like Shimano USA doesn't check currency exchange rates anymore.
You can find Antares in low 400'sUSD, 40500-41500 yen in Japanese stores, same thing for Metanium.
EMS Japan delivery is really fast, got my recent orders in 3 days on average.

Re: Boca OS7 on Core 50/51 - Feedback

Why only Boca's?! ZPI Studio or Hedgehog make better BB.
Same thing for ultra light oil, I would rather pay more and get nice bottle of ZPI or Hedgehod oil, instead of Boca oil.
I doubt Japanese anglers buy Boca bearings made in China, if they have option to buy made in Japan BB's.
