Try leaving you tool box drawer open in Iraq and letting that hot sun bake those tools. Ouch. To learn to close/cover real quick.
Funny how some lessons stick after the first time. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Titanium Framed reels?

Plastic parts on firearms is limited to grips and accessories is it? No one is making plastic actions or barrels. Plastic drag stars and side plates are fine but I want my frame to be metal at the very least. I would prefer a metal drag star and dual side plates just to make the reel feel nice, sol...

Re: Titanium Framed reels?

They can print in metal including Ti, but let's be fair it's totally unnecessary and the reels parts wouldn't last long enough to warrant their manufacturing and future benefits in parts and all that, let alone the cost and popularity of the reel. Or even 3D CNC but yeh too exxy. Titanium alloys th...

Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

Overall, I feel like the coronavirus discussion on this board has been very measured and respectful, especially compared to another bass fishing message board I frequent which descended into drum-banging, conspiracy theories and very politically partisan territory. Probably because TT is more diver...

Re: Round Reel Refinement - The JDM Daiwa Millionaire CT SV70

Every once in a while I go to TW website, open up the Shimano casting reels, and just drool over the 50. At 7.5 oz, I could easily fish it all day. It looks like a finely engineered machine. My birthday's coming up in August (hint, hint). I didn't think Shimano made a 50 Conquest any more, just the...

Re: Do you guys always use reel covers and rod sleeves?

For the last several years, Zander and I's routine has been to meet up at his place the night before our fishing/testing trips, and drive up to our location in his vehicle. We usually get there close to midnight, spend an hour or two unpacking and setting our combos for the next day, then head to b...

Re: Let’s talk about Grass

I think the majority of fertilizer pollution, and also insecticides, come from commercial farms and ranches. While I'm sure residential use is also a factor, just look at the volume of these chemicals used in agriculture.

The next person that misspells Daiwa on TT should be banished to fish FisherGirl combos with stinkbait in fishless waters for eternity! :lol:
Maybe Daiwa misspelled it, way back when. :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: How long does braid last

I usually go two seasons per reel, after the first season I reverse the braid for the next season, after that I buy new. I just reversed the braid on that reel. As soon as I can fish again, we'll see how it holds up. Half the spool is still dark green. I realized, as I was reversing the braid, that...

Re: How long does braid last

I had the exact same problem with the Stren braid. The last one I used was some 80# braid set up for my catfishing. I had not touched it for like several years and I barely even used it. It was about 10 yrs old or so and when I went to tug on the line, it snapped clean. I also when to fish it and i...

Re: How long does braid last

I feel that braid, on its own, lasts a decade+ and doesn’t care much about sun/UV light exposure. But braid, when fished, does fray as it rubs along structure, and that’s where my line failures come from. Happens in saltwater all the time when rockfish fishing, and I routinely take off the first 10...
