Thanks for the clarification.

Re: Fluro Help !

Bass Pro fluoro works. It is much more forgiving of loops or kinks, if you don't continually cast with them in the spool. I switched from Sniper to BPS because of the weak spots I got with Sniper with even a small kink. BPS fluoro is much more forgiving. Having said that, I just got a spool of their...

Re: BPS Extreme

Long story short, the Extreme rods work great. Get the longer rod, and don't be put off by the telescopic rod. I have one that's held up fine over the years. BPS buys in volume from the same manufs. that make most of the other rod brands, so they get a good price on their rods. They can't afford to ...

Re: T3 1016, any longevity issues?

OK, so on a serious note... Mine's a JDM HSL. Casts fantastic, comfortable to palm especially with an ACS seat (only reel I like with that reelseat), reasonably light. It is not what I would call smooth though. I blame that on the levelwind gears they used. Mine also arrived with the outer mag ring...

Re: How small Will Reels Get?

I've been begging for a Stella 500 for a decade now... A JDM 1000C would work as well, eh, Marc? I've got a Twin Power 1000 and a Laguna 500. I've heard all the reasons why a 500 is too small. I still want one for UL with the thinnest braid. There's a huge difference between what one needs and what...

Re: How small Will Reels Get?

Assuming that the issue of durability isn't a problem, will the actual material not used represent a significant enough saving to make the more intricate manufacturing involved worth while, or is this all just a gimmick, a smaller/lighter marketing ploy? My experience using the Conquest models I wo...

Re: Help choosing Crankbait / Topwater Rod 1/4 oz to 3/4 oz

That Phenix is a good looking stick application wise seems to really fit the bill. Thanks. Odd how it's getting harder for me to choose a good stick after posting this than before. I would pick the rod that throws and works the lightest bait you use, and then learn how to use it for the other baits...

Check out the 7' med. lite rod here. It's great for both topwaters and small cranks.
