Re: Finesse Monofilament/Fluorocarbon

I bought 2 spools of 6# P-Line Tactical with the intent of using it on a couple of my baitcasters but it's so thin and limp that I'll be spooling a couple of spinning reels with it instead. I had a snag with 6# and it took a hell of a straight pull to get it to break off, I was really surprised. It ...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Since moving to Alabama from Toronto, I've caught bass on a number of lures I didn't have any luck with up north, but I hadn't caught anything on a fluke. That used to be my go to lure up north for smallies. Well, yesterday I finally caught my first Alabama fluke fish, it just wasn't what I expected...

Tip top make, model and size on Cumara

A friend of mine has a 7'2" MH Cumara casting rod and the insert popped out of the tip top. He wants to replace it with the same one, can someone point me in the direction of the exact tip top (or nearest thing) please? Thanks in advance!

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Finally got around to replacing the gears in the Sol with some 6.8's. SV105 cast control cap for good measure. Thank you Tackle Trap! No more red on orange! http://i.imgur.com/sbTWqh3l.jpg The SV103 drag star matches the black of the CCC perfectly, I have both of those on an Airy and they're sharp,...

Re: Anyone tried DIY spools? $29-$40 BFS spools!

Once you open the ticket, give the seller the option to ship another one EMS Rather than a refund as your first option. I did this and the seller agreed, both of us thought the package had gotten lost. He actually forgot to send it EMS the second time but it arrived much quicker. AND, the original o...

Re: TDZ inductor sound

I use two small flat blade screw drivers. Place the spool on a folded towel. Lay the spool on the towel with the inductor facing you, and the c clip ends pointed up. Take the two screwdrivers and gently apply pressure to both ends on the c clip. It should pop off and right into the towel. Reassembl...

Re: P-LINE Tactical!

I picked up some 6# and 15# but have yet to try either out, they only arrived yesterday. I'm waiting for a couple of spools to show up to try them out on.

Re: SV103 vs. J-Dream

I don't know if they ever could get rid of that reel platform. In fact, bring it back made of Mg, put an SV spool in it, and call it the 20th Anniversary TD-Z SV (since 1998 was the first year of the TD-Z) and bring it back as a limited model at I-Cast under the price of the current Steez SV.

Re: Action vs. Soft Tip vs. Taper

I guess I'm drinking the manufacturers Kool-Aid then. With a soft/stiff tip suggesting how easy it is to load a lure on cast, I figure it would also be factored into the rod's lure rating. IE a softer tip on a fast rod would have lower lure ratings (3/8-2oz) vs a fast rod with a stiff tip (5/8 - 2o...
