Re: any feedback on the American Presso PSO562ULFS

I picked one up and I have to say, it is pretty impressive. I really love my Major Craft rods but I think I will give this one the nod over my Sol Para 562 SUL which is a real buggy whip. The Presso has a faster action and might be more in tune to how I prefer to fish. I really like the finish on th...

any feedback on the American Presso PSO562ULFS

This would be the 5-6 2pc UL PSO562ULFS. I can snatch one up for a decent price. Just would like to know if it is a decent rod and how it might compare to maybe a Bass Para. I use mostly Major Craft stuff for my lighter rods and am in the market for a cheaper rod to leave at the cabin. The Presso lo...

Re: Review: Major Craft Basspara 6-6 ULS

I have not had that experience with any of the Major Craft rods. I think you must have got a bad guide on yours because these Ul rods dictate the use of light lines. 4lb is pretty much standard.

MAJOR CRAFT BENEYRO

I just picked up a new MAJOR CRAFT BENEYRO BNC-682MH 6'8" really, really cheap, less than 50.00.......I just don't know much about it though. But, my experience with this brand has been great, in fact at one time I was so against 2pc rods that I wouldn't consider owning one.......I've sold off many ...

Re: Which Corzza

I've got 8 or 9 different Major Craft rods. I have 2 Go Emotion 652 ULBFS rods. On one I have an Aldabarran 51 and on the other I run a Scorpion 1001 4X4 SVS it has a carbon drag and upgraded bearings. I fish Crankbaits with the Scorp. and Ned Rig's with the Aldabarran. The action, in my opinion I g...

Re: BFS Hunting

-2 (to uljersey and allsorts ;) ) The OP asked about BFS BC tackle. He never made this into a spinning vs BC thing. I am sure he is knows about "the laws of physics", and that spinning gear in many fishing situations would be the rational choice. I like reading threads about how light you can go wi...

Re: basspara vs presso

I like Major Craft rods a lot. I have a Basspara BPS662 UL and I love it. I got the whole thing shipped from Japan for 80.00. I have it matched up with a Symetre 750 and usually use 4lb line on it. It excels at most of my ul applications. I also have a Sol Para 632 SUL and a Corkish CKS652. The SUL ...

Re: Looking for new spinning reel.

Shimano Nasci 500 HG, is a killer UL reel. I'm running 2 of them along with a Stradic CI4 1000 and a Soare 1000 PGSS

Re: Review: Major Craft Basspara 6-6 ULS

I hope it helped you guys out. I just saw I had a couple of questions sent to me in the past week or so in email, I responded to them. I don't log in here as often as I probably should. To update you guys: I now have a total of 6 Major Craft rods. 3 are Basspara's, one is a Corkish, one is a Trapara...

Need clarification on rod designations

I have 6 Major Craft rods, I love them........Trapara's, Basspara's, a Go Emotion and a Corkish. What is the difference between an XUL and a SUL? I'm guessing they mean Xtra Ultra Lite and Super Ultra Lite. But is there a real difference between them? I can tell that the SUL is much lighter and more...

Review: Major Craft Basspara 6-6 ULS

Every so often something comes along that becomes a diamond in the rough. For me, the Major Craft Basspara 6-6 UL spinning rod has become one of those treasures. While looking extensively at higher end UL rods that I just couldn't seem to justify because of their price tags, I stumbled upon the Majo...

Re: FYI

5+oz seems extremely heavy for a UL spinning rod.....considering I'm looking at rods barely over 3oz. I think in UL fishing, it matter more than any other type.
