Yumeya Bantam MGL Shallow Spool

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

Not a lot floating around so I just got one and some DoLive beavers..

I like shallow spools for pitching an flipping because I don't use backing at all

Can't say much about the Yumeya spool other than, you are a one man spool Fort Knox. Sounds like a great setup!
The DoLive Beaver tho...showcased those a while back on my Mail Call thread. Found amazment at how the rear appendeges smacked together like butt cheeks at a twerking contest. I found that both the I and the fish cannot resist that action! My only gripe is I think I bought the ECO version, which lasts only a few fish. Most recently I have been using as a trailer on a Jackhammer with great success. But my favorite method is on a small Jika rig.

I had seen one for a long time but never pulled the trigger
I said why not tonight
Butt the butt cheeks slapping together like at a twerking contest is a reaction innovations sales line if they came out with a similar lure as the DoLive. I have a package that is small and haven’t opened it up yet. I’m going to though.

Also if your using a tungsten football weight and have found that the clacking beads are magnetized and won’t separate. Put them under extreme heat and for some scientific reason that I am not aware of, after I dump them in water they loose their magnetism.

Removes polarity, reducing magnetism. Iron for example is easily magnetized because a field induces similar orientation of all iron atoms giving a "north" and "south" pole.
