Re: which g loomis worm rod

Re: steez 100 info?

I prefer a more "solid" "workhorse" type of reel for moving baits...Something with the feel of a Chronarch D or Calais. I know they are heavier, but have a more powerful feel (to me). Just so you know I'm not biased, I just picked up my first Daiwas in 15 years last week. A Steez 103 SHA and a Steez...

Re: So how does everyone feel now?

I still believe FC is a must have for bottom contact baits due to its sensitivity (density). I still don't throw it on my treble hook lures or spinnerbaits...usually.

Re: BPS EXCEL? Is it any good????

I used it for years until I had a bass bulldog me straight away from the boat and break 10lb line clean in 47 degree water and take my wiggle wart with her. This was the 1st cast after a re-tie. This probably doesn't mean anything, but it got in my head big-time. Because most mono is very affordable...

Re: Braid Knot

Double Palomar.... Which is making a wrap around the hook eye before doubling the line. That is actually not the double palomar. On the double palomar, you simply tie 2 overhand knots, instead of one, with the double line before you pass the loop over the hook.... http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g7b...

Re: Megabass Trick/Rocket Darter

I'm sure it was a trick darter. They sink too...just not as fast. Supposed to suspend..best when worked without much of a pause.

Re: Is the Chronarch D gone?

I was told by a dealer that it was not backorderable, as of today....Is that not accurate?

Re: used Chronarch, or new Curado?

Besides the componesnts, one of the biggest differences in these 2 reels is line capacity. If you are making short pitches, the issue is irrelevant, but when making long casts the Curado handles heavier line better (more line capacity).

Re: Chronarch and Core

Another thing to consider is that the D7 MAY balance better with the "bigger" 744 rod... Also, when casting big baits with heavy line, neither reel is ideal. They are limited in their line capacity. Although not up to par with the other 2 regarding quality, the Curado E7 handles 17+ lb. line better,...
