Opinions DX792SF

Thinking about this rod. I have a DX702SF and a DX742SF both of which are outstanding rods. What does the DX792 offer that I can't do with either of the two I have now ? Can it handle 1/2 to 3/4 tubes snapped in deep water ?

Re: 50MG

Ok folks they are going to stay put. Maybe I'll just start looking at all the rods I could match them with.

Re: 50MG

Well, I have 6; four of which are in my everyday line up and 2 BNIB. Maybe I will just fish them till the "wheels fall off". The so called new stuff is tempting though !

50MG

I have several and am contemplating replacing them with the newer technology. IF I did what would you recommend ? I have 1000XT's and that was my first thought. Looks like the 50e is a candidate as the other 50 platform reels.

Stradic 2500FH Binding

Seems to start binding in rain or wet conditions. Is this the friction washer causing this ?

Lews Team Gold Spinning Reels

Wondering who has and what is your experience with them. Thinking of new spinning reels for 2014 although my collection of Stradic FH's are still going strong. Sustains would be a logical step up in the Shimano line but I can buy three Lews Team Gold for a little over what I can buy one Sustain. App...

Casting Rod for Silver Buddy and similiar blade baits.

What action and specs for the rod are you using for this technique. Basically a lift and drop bait weighing 1/2 to 3/4 oz depending on depth. Curious as to what you folks use. Thanks !

Re: Aero Stradic 1000 Schematic

It is either a FB or FD and I don't have the box or a way of telling which. I'm guessing a needle in a haystack to find the friction ring.
