Re: 13 fishing defy silver

If it is any help, I have a pair of US Presso UL's a 5-6 and a 6-6 and they have been fine.
I also have a bunch of Kuying rods including 4 Tetons.......no issues with them at all.
Good luck!!

Re: 13 fishing defy silver

I looked at the reviews from TW and more than a few mentioned the rods breaking around the 2nd guide from the tip......I'd stay away.

Re: 13 fishing defy silver

I wish I could find something on these rods. There just isn't any info.

Re: Broken rod and rehab ...

This saddens me. I broke a 2pc rod at my cabin and was looking at your repair as an option to try. It was a cheap Max Catch rod that cost me 24 bucks so, I am not going to worry about it. I wish it worked out for you though.

Re: **Say it ain't so**

I'm not condoning the Baseball juicers or Lance Armstrong for using steriods......the bottom line there is that those guys did have to actually make contact with the ball and win races. Hiding fish in secret live wells to cheat at tournaments and snagging record fish, lying about lake records.....et...

Re: Broken rod and rehab ...

Awesome repair job, the only concern I have is the Devcon. I'm not sure how flexible that will be.
I have stopped using it on my re-paints as well. It made a decent clear coating but there are better ones for that application.

BTW, Ghost peppers+ will be in the mail when I get back from NC.

Re: Inshore Baitcaster for under $100??

I am running a super tuned Curado e51 for reds and snook down here in Fl. It has turned out to be a great inshore salt water reel for me.

Re: So... Fireline

I'm using 10lb Fireline on my Aldabaran XG BFS Limited and a Major Craft Volkey 692 L casting rod. I throw Jackall Super Eruption spinnerbaits and Dera Break "Chatters" with it. I've taken fish to 8lbs on the set up. I've never had any issues with the Fireline.....old or new formulation. The old stu...

CDM Trout Spoons

With my renewed interest in fishing ul for panfish and bass, I decided to look into buying some smaller, lighter trout spoons. Stuff weighing between 1/32oz and under 1/8oz. In the past I went with Diawa Crusaders or Smith Native series spoons which are aces but I decided I didn't want to spend 5 or...

If you really mean ultra light and not light tackle.......look into the Tica Cetus SB500 or SB800

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

TT came first for me. Way back in the day, there was a monthly publication I used to get called Tackle Tester. I was 16 or so and with the 10.00 subscription they gave you a pretty decent package of California hand pours. It wasn't quite a magazine, it was more like a 20 ish page newsletter that cam...

Re: Uncharted Foreign Waters - what lures?

beetlespins, roostertails, roadrunners, small jig heads with 1.5" plastics......some spoons and rapala minnows. Those will catch anything, anywhere for UL.
