    Newer upgraded Daiwa Lexa 300hd

    any reel if you fish it to their max limit is going to fail , no matter what brand is, I don't see anyone driving their cars to the highest rpm , you will blow that engine up , and any brand once they discontinue a reel will have part for a certain of years then you are out of luck , just ask...

    When is the fathom 15 ld narrow become available

    15 ld 2spd, sure it will give the Avet sxj a run for its money if its a true 15 narrow ,not like the troque 15 extra narrow which is more of a 25 extra narrow

    Is there a rod clamp that would attach a Daiwa Lexa 300 to a deckhand grip rod?

    I have my lexa 300 on a calstar gx8 with a trigger reel seat , honestly I feel that reel seats are more secure than rod clamps, 1 reason not crushing the blank overtime

    i would put the avet mxl on the phenix rod and the torium 20 on the calstar as your jig setup, the torium has more drag power plus the torium will be easier to cast aswell , and the avet mxl on the phenix could be your live bait setup in my opinion...

    isnt funny back in the days before the 2 spd reels revolution everyone was crying for the low gears and a reel that was 4.1 to 1 gearing was the hot stuff. i was thought to lift the fish with the rod then crank as you lower the rod . most people are forgeting the purpose of the rod

    go with the 700 xh on either brand will work, remember if you are yoyo jiging, you dont need to cast far, the shorter the rod the more pulling power you get without hurting your back. As far as bait goes im guessing you will be using the bigger baits, so they will be able to swim on the heavier...

  94. tony38

    Avet 3 speed Jx raptor

    what about using the rod and the boat as help, when the boat moves up you lift and when it goes down you crank , i mean 3 gears already or maybe changing the gear from 3 to 1 in the lower and leaving the high as it is. on the hx 5.4 high and 1.9 low I think its good enough

  106. tony38

    Which reel?

    he mentioned BFT so thats why I advice the raptor , but yeah if hes only going for the 1/2 to 3/4 boat trips he really dont need any of the high end gear , a penn fth 25n would be a great match as well
  107. tony38

    Which reel?

    i believe 30 would be the max of that rod just my opinion . i have a 8ft rod rated 20-40 with an avet mxj raptor filled with 350yards of 65lb braid and i change the leaders from 25-30lb floro
  108. tony38

    Which reel?

    hi well if you are planning in the bigger yt and bft you will need a heavier setup, fishing 40-60 lb leaders, my setup for that is a phenix psw700xh and an avet hxj raptor, so far caught yt around 30lb no problem with that reel, i can go up and down on the leader as needed

  133. tony38

    JX Raptor or HXJ for local 50lb yoyo/dropper loop setup?

    I own the hxj and like it, the high gear its about right , remember sometimes you dont need to crank that jig too fast or else starts to spin and the lower gear its useful when you hook a tuna instead of the yellow and start doing the tuna circle

    # Setups

    well for 40# 50# i bought the avet hxj raptor and for the rod i bought an used phenix black diamond psw700xh great setup , i bought the hxj at sav on tackle got a deal they fill the reel with 80# pro spec braid for free 440 yards, i have heard good feedback about the penn fth 40n 2 spd too i...
  142. tony38

    # Setups

    i think your current reel and rod its good from 25-30 even 40 lbs leader , as other state put some 50 or 65 lb braid to about 1/8 of the spool edge that will give you room to change your leader as you need to go light or heavy, then i would recomend a larger reel and a 7' rod in the heavy or...
  143. tony38

    rod advice

    im guessing you are going to use that reel to fish 30# 40# mono and heavy rod in the 7' would be great lots of good brands on rods out there it narrows to your choice, but try to go to a local tackle shop so you can pull on some rods and see which one feels good for you

  148. tony38

    Stolen gear, wrong forum, I know, but trying

    check craigslist and were the rods custom made or factory as if the were custom made it would be a bit easier to track and sorry for your lost seems that lately is fishing gear getting hammer all over

    so its a weak knot to be fish for live bait , i was thinking of using it instead of buying ring hook

    deckhand rod with reel seat

    What i have learn is that the deckhand rods dont have a reel seat is for you to be able to move the reel to a confortable position of the reel for you to cast other than have a fix position with the reel seat, i had a calstar 270h 8ter and i added a reel seat to fish with my lexa 400

    Problem reversing lugs

    and for sure avet wont do anything about that issue, they said it takes more steps to fix the problem and cost more money, but what i think is just matter of stopping the drill before its creates a longer hole i dont see where that can be adding steps and increasing the cost of the reel

    Go to rod for local

    its funny how we are caught in the high tech even when it comes to fishing , i learn that we dont need all that expensive gear to catch fish , seen people with penn 500 penn 4/0 catch more and big fish no problem, we really dont need all that drag for anything in the range of 1/2 to 1.5 days...
  225. tony38

    Lexa 400

    no Robert im just saying cus some people push the gear far more of what its intended to be for , its like if i was using the reel to catch a 200lb cow but if you use it right it will work properly

    Need a rod for my new Lexa 400

    i have mine with a westcoast calstar 270H 8 fter nice light tip and pently of backbone had good times this past season , the only thing i did was add a reel seat as this rod is a deckhand style other than that its about 10 year old rod works fine til now

    do the talicas 2 spd have thrust bearing

    just getting some info as im looking foward to but a reel to fish 40-50 lb live bait , yoyo stuff thanks
  268. tony38

    What is a "thrust bearing"?

    thanks John very good info and well explain in a more simple form again thank you for taking the time to explain
  269. tony38

    What is a "thrust bearing"?

    so the thrust bearing is more of a load support , thanks i been trying to decide between the phantom 40 ld 2 spd and the avet hxj and now this helps explain more of the inside
  270. tony38

    i need some advice and opinions

    thanks for that link seems in a way that the internals are more rebust than the avet for what i see , now how they handle to the normal used not abused

    i need some advice and opinions

    thanks
  272. tony38

    i need some advice and opinions

    thanks for the quick reply, yes im talking about the fathom 40 , i know avets are machine frame vs cast on the penn. how about the guts between the 2
  273. tony38

    i need some advice and opinions

    in these 2 reels pros and cons phanton 40nld 2 spd and avet hxj raptor i know the avet its narrower than the penn planning in putting 300 yards of 80 braid
  274. tony38

    AVET HXJ RAPTOR LINES ADVICE

    most people will fill it up with 80 lbs braid to the top then a short top shot of 3 to 4 feet normally would be 40-60 lb fluro but you can go as heavy as 80lb for those big yellows on the drooper loop

    Additional rod/reel recommendation(s)

    how about something light for calico , sand bass, halibut , i have a lexa 400 with the 5.1gear filled with 50 power pro ,pair with a calstar 270H so far its been good enough ,light tip and plenty of back bone to pull
  280. tony38

    okay whats the difference between the..

    true but its always good to spread the word everywhere plus im sure avet its watching, and i give okuma two tumbs up for stepping up in the game and producing some good gear at a lower price yes im aware it wont be like the top notch machine pieces but overall very well produce
  281. tony38

    okay whats the difference between the..

    because many times you bring points to the rep. and just get ignore , now when you open the can of worms in a forum like these and other people start comment about it the rep listen more to the topic just like accurate did with the bx series now the have dogs and ARB's

  283. tony38

    okay whats the difference between the..

    maybe one thing avet can upgrade is the back play they have , maybe adding another dog and an AR bearing that would be great points for them i think

    New andros 12 A choices

    i'm kind of new but for i been learning you need the higher spd to rip the jig through the water and for bait a slower spd to have the torque you need but again i'm still learning,, or you can buy one of those 2 spd and cover both in one reel

  289. tony38

    happy thanksgiving to all, does anyone

    yeah they need to step up, and update a few down things, like most other companies now they have double dogs , or dog and AR bearing, wouldnt mind to pay an extra $30 for that..i know you cant compair machine vs cast but look at those phanton from penn i believe they will be a straight home run
  290. tony38

    happy thanksgiving to all, does anyone

    knows if you can add an antireverse bearing to any size of avet reels to take away the back play ??? i think that could be some good points for avet what do you guys think
