Re: What's in your reel collection?

Megabass FX68R Rosso The Lews is on my travel setup. Don't have rods yet for the TD-Z or the Megabass. I don't have much of a collection compared to a lot of you but then again I'm pretty new to the JDM/high end scene. How do you like your Rosso? what are you planning on using it for? one megabass ...

Re: One TOTALLY STOCK reel to rule them all

If it has to be $300 MSRP or under I'm going with the SV103 as well. If it can get over $300 it's still my Metanium MGL. :)

Re: 2017 lineup

Thanks y'all! You have a nice selection of rods and reels. I'm sure you will add more. That Rosso would look good on a XXX Oneten Stick. Read my mind there. Been thinking about an XXX Oneten. I need to get my XXX Chimaera first and see how I like the lineup. :D I love what you did with that SV103H.....

Re: Grease and oil preferences

I asked Bryan at the Tackle Trap for recommendations and am glad I did. He recommended (IIRC) ZPI Light grease for levelwind and frame bearings, ZPI Medium grease for gears, and Hedgehog Studio Alchemy oil for spool bearings. Couldn't be happier with that setup.

Very true, but I think the question is more is it still a good choice now that we have many more high speed options?

Re: 6.3 for Texas rigs?

What do you think? Does that make any sense in today's world of 7's, 8's, & 9's? I have interest in this question as well. I can think of one application where that would be nice, that is slow dragging Texas or Carolina rigs. But for most other things I kind of like having that faster gear ratio.

Re: Where are the shimanos?

My recently acquired Citica E. This is a BNIB reel. I decided to mod it a bit to give some really nice performance and aesthetic upgrades. Inside I replaced the bushing on the driveshaft with a bearing. Swapped the gears out for CuradoE7 gears. JDM Shimano spool bearings. Carbontex drag upgrade. Ha...

Sweet lineup! Is the orange on the T3 custom or is that a special model? Looks fantastic.

Re: bassasaurus : Feedback Request Topic

Bought a ZPI handle nut from Young. Turned out it was for a LH reel, I needed a RH and never thought to ask. He offered me a refund and sent it right away upon acceptance. Great guy to deal with in my limited experience.
