Re: Calcutta Conquest SE

https://i.postimg.cc/HWfmnbsh/20240201-102509.jpg Just got mine in. Super, super greasy. Had another angler I know play with the reel in hand and ask why it was so tight. I turned the handle and a click happened then the reel was smooth again. I hate to complain but it was odd. You have to barely t...

Re: All new steez sv tw

At this price point what they should have is a carbon handle. How is it that some alphas air stream, px68 or the alphas type r had a carbon handle, but not Daiwa's flagship that approach 1k usd? This applies to shimano as well, but that company has been using nothing but ugly handles made out of me...

Re: Calcutta Conquest SE

Ordered mine today!!! Very excited to have my second Conquest. Considering buying a BFS version eventually just to say I have one, will be hard to do though cause my little Aldebaran has been tough. I still hope Daiwa releases a new Ryoga. I really like round reels. I noticed the Millionaire was bac...

Re: Ticking Sound-Stradic FM

Since you mentioned it above, I have and love love love my Gekkabijin X. It has quickly become my favorite eggbeater. I have it on a 2 pc ML rod that stays in the xterra. I've used it extensively, and I've caught some 4-6# fish with it. I have zero complaints, and it is still as smooth as day one. ...

Re: If You Could Have ONLY One Lure for the Rest of Your Life

I might even take a small spoon for survival. I figured we had an unlimited supply of the lure and it is just the one we have to fish with eternally.

If you get more of them, a small jig would be a high pick too.

Re: If You Could Have ONLY One Lure for the Rest of Your Life

Does it have to be a lure alone or could I pick like a 3.3" Keitech and jighead? Seems fair if you pick a jerkbait and get treble hooks, so I should be able to pick a plastic and one jighead???

If not on the plastics, I would pick a small Duo or Megabass jerkbait for lure only...

Re: What color Senko should I use?

Color I always liked, especially for 5" or under, was the Smoke Hologram Blue Purple Silver Laminate. Just a very baitfish looking color and always worked well. I've known people to swear by the "Red Shad" 2 tone color, in not just Senko's but many other worms, I have just never personally succeeded...

Re: 2024 Releases/Rumors

Why did it took them almost half a decade to add dc brakes into a 2020 reel? Its not like they had to build a brand new frame and a digital braking system. I could be wrong on this, but this new Metanium DC looks like it's a bit wider than the non-DC version. Only makes sense since the 20 Metanium ...

The family literally asked that I don't post the location of where the Capybara was spotted for fear that a Gert-beat redneck might shoot it. There are some amazing people in the deep South but there are also some bad ones.

Arkansas Capybara

So a few days ago one of the wildest stories of my life happened. I had been fishing a lot the last few months even though recently I haven't fished much. September 30th I took a picture of an animal I thought was just a big Nutria (a big river rodent I had never personally seen). Well I got to desc...

Re: New Certate?

I am curious to see where the price of this new Certate falls. I was scared to order another Stradic FM due to one having issues, might either wait for the next Vanford iteration or just get this Certate.
