Re: Power loss from cutting

Would depend on total length and bend characteristic I'd figure. For instance, I'm thinking a typical length true X-Fast I'd venture 2%, where perhaps a true Moderate might be in the neighborhood of 10% or so? Roughly, hell I don't know. But I do know length and bend matter. That's what she told me.

Re: Why do people fish such heavy breaking strain lines when targeting bass?

It's not so much people use heavy line as much as heavy line works is all. Trout have very soft mouths in comparison.

I fish out of a boat so I have 5 or 6 of the same bait if they produce. I always buy any new bait in pairs.
5 or 6? Is that all? There are days I lose 3 within two hours. Messes with me all week, or month, but worth the risk. Sort of.

Re: Do You Believe in Magic? Gan Craft's Killers Dead Sword

Ironic timing... and I'm happy you found the light. Keep it going... Of note, my DSM (s) are 2-5oz not 6oz. I'm figuring simple misprint, but you are on the right track they actually do throw 6 pretty decent. I am shocked you found success throwing down to .5oz on Dead Sword though. I did it a few d...

Re: MB Hyuga 72H/Super Red Demon, what rod sits in between?

I am primarily looking for a rod for larger single hooked lures, but would also want to be able to fish some glides and wakes in the same 1-2oz range as the BoomBoom, so a little versatility would be nice. You realize these are really two different rods, right? For the glides and wakes, you want so...

Re: geecrack double dutch hellsgate

Finally, a mass produced rod that has adjustable butt cap weights! It's such a simple thing, but the improvement to balance blows people away when they try the rods I built. Glad to see this becoming more popular. Rod balance > rod weight. Gan Craft has been including balancers with most their buil...

Re: Looking for a quality snap.

I read a few reviews that state these are sometimes rough and jagged, resulting in braid fraying. Any truth to this? I ordered a package. Not sure why. I'll probably throw them away ;) Interesting. And no I haven't. There is in fact an 'end' to structure, but only way I might see fray is if tying a...

Re: Looking for a quality snap.

We're good you and me. Good point on timeline and I understand and agree with you on the size thing. Spot on. But that's where the new 25 comes in which was the first sentence I wrote. It's smaller than you think. Half the size of 50 which used to be the smallest available. Glorified paper clip, th...

Re: Looking for a quality snap.

The 25 are smaller than you think. What has been written is true. More reliable because they can't open and easier to use because you don't have to open them. It's a win/win. Snaps are outdated technology. I figure only reason these aren't more popular here is because they are not JDM which means n...

Re: This is a first for me

Yeah you definitely want a key locked hitch. But be warned, even THAT is no guarantee unattended. I've personally never 'lost' one but have a buddy who did. Someone actually picked the key lock, pulled the hitch, and then in the worlds utmost dramatic act of defiance went so far as to reinserted the...

But a lot of guys don't get that there's a difference in performance between say 8lb & 12lb floroclear. Some Models certain rating are excellent while others are trash.
100% agree with this. Every blend has a sweet spot.

Re: T3 Mago drag

I can't find a schematic for the mago but the washer I found behind the drag star was pretty thick. Maybe someone can confirm if this is the correct washer.

Yes, on T3 Mago it is correct
