Does a bear....

I'm notoriously psychotic. I can't buy a lure. I always buy 2 and bring 2. Why I don't fish Megabass or expensive swimbaits.

Re: MB663 (IM or HM)

I have the 664 HM extended two inches. Honestly, I think half ounce jerkbaits are the top of it's threshold. 3/8 oz is about perfect imo. I don't think either 663 is going to have the appropriate power. If your 664 is the IM, this series tends to have a bit more power than its HM brother. My perfect...

Re: New NFC material

Where might I find this announcement? Are they incorporating some of the T1100 stuff?

Re: My SV Boost reels, so far...

Well I still cannot decide... comparing spools weights, I think the Zillion Boost and original SVTW are about the same. Not sure on the Alphas SVTW spool weight... I just wonder if I really need to upgrade or not... should I just wait for a sale or are these new reels hot enough I should grab one n...

Re: My SV Boost reels, so far...

Same on the alphas sv tw. It's a really nice reel, especially for the money, but there's something holding back with casting. I expected it to be close to ct sv 70 with finesse stuff on ML/Mish rods but no, it's better on M/MHish rod, even then i don't think it casts better than alphas sv 105 or ev...

Re: My SV Boost reels, so far...

I'd agree with that, Lowrange. I just got an Alphas SV TW. It's a great reel, but it hasn't blown me away regarding casting distance. It's a superb reel all around, though. Do you think using a ML or M rod, with 8 or 10lb fluoro, would the Zillion or Alphas cast further using 3/16 or 1/8 with plast...

Re: Jason Statham’s best movie

Definitely looks good. I'll watch it for sure. I think my favorite is probably Home Front, but I also really like him in the Expendables movies.

Re: Any other worms similar to OSP MMZ worm?

I haven't come across any similar style worms. I just started using these a few weeks ago. They stink to high hell lol. Expensive too. I double up on them, and strap them together with a 4mm G7 worm tube. I've thrown them on 3/32 oz wacky heads, and also on a free rig with them doubled up like this....

Made a similar post a while back. Not many willing to give up their secret lure that’s no longer available :lol: Mine is the Lucky Craft Flash Minnow 95MR
This is a good one. I also can't find many Jackall Squad minnow 80s, another excellent jerkbait.

Are the Steez CT gears made the same way as the newer zillion? The Hyperwhatever thing Daiwa is calling it.
The gears on the new Zillion and Steez are cut a little differently. So not exactly the same.

Re: Looking for a quality snap.

I would bet I've tried more snaps than anyone. My favorite are Owner Hyper Wire. They are smooth welded, which eliminates many of the bends and hangups on the water. They aren't cheap, but better than any I've seen. Zero knockoffs of this style. For everyday, I tried maybe 20 varieties on aliexpres...
