Re: Rapala buys Zebco

The press release is very light in reference to quantum One release I read said the acquisition includes Quantum. I just mean its pretty light in details, I can't see a reason to keep it and compete with yourself but they seem to be highlighting it for Europe, I wonder what it means for Van Staal a...

Re: Kistler rods?

Interesting...just noticed the new Helium and Zbone are built on the same blank. Only difference is Torzorite guides and "AA" cork. Surprised the Helium has alconite and not SIC. As for NFC I can only assume blanks and Edge are a small portion of their business. I say that because they don't seem t...

Re: Kistler rods?

Hard to look at a Magnesium for $200 when you can get a Megabass Lavante. I feel like I'm beating a dead horse and also kicking someone while their down. But without NFC is see little to zero reason to give Kistler my hard earned money their products. It was the only reason I would overlook their s...

Re: Vibration analysis between '20 Met and '21 Zillion

So quick update on trying to capture sound waves. It's not really going like I thought. I'll list my issues so far and if anybody has any (cheap, easy) ideas to fix them, I'm all ears. Basically, I downloaded some oscilloscope apps for my iPhone that just use the internal microphone to log dB value...

Re: Kistler rods?

Kistler playing with reels and dropping NFC is so confusing. All they had to do was update their handles to look from this decade. As mentioned, NFC blanks were the big draw for me. Now I'm looking at ugly rods with a Chinese blank. Where does Kistler best the competition? Zodias $199 / Tatua $189 ...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

Had a feeling the defense mechanisms would eventually show up. Here's the list of what actually happened when I casted the new Zillion: - Baits flew to hyper-infinity - All my Shimanos melted - Every eyebrow rose - Every panty dropped :lol: I'm sold. Can't wait until mine gets here Looks like I jus...

Re: Zillion sv TW 1000

I consider myself very lucky in that I am able to get my fill of the drug that is fishing fairly high end rod/reels on an almost daily basis. There’s a 500 acre lake in my backyard, several other stocked ponds in the neighborhood, and I’m a close drive to some of the best bass lakes in MS, LA, AR, ...

Re: Kistler rods?

Almost sounds like its the same blank as the rebellion with the talk of 45 degree layered carbon like diawas x45 blanks, I am not paying a premium for the kistler name with a Chinese blank, I don't care if it has guides stuck on it in Texas. I guess I will have to hope my luck holds out with edge ro...

OP, just because I'm curious... what length of tag line did you leave with the knot?

About 2-3 inches
