I have a United Composites RCE 900mag, it's a factory deckhand rod and I want to add an Alps reel seat to it but don't know which size seat to buy.
Can someone please steer me in the right direction as to which size to buy.
I'm I'm installing a Turks head on my rod, I think I figured out how to tighten it but now I need to know how to secure it. Do I use an epoxy and if so which, can I use Crazy Glue. I'm going to seal it with polycrylic because that's what I already have in my garage I just need to know how to...
I wanna fish SCI but I'm not sure which boats or Landings fish there on a regular basis. I assume the two Landings out of Newport Beach offer boats that go there but their websites are horrible and offer no information.
Not sure if this is a stupid question or if this question has been asked a million times but here goes.
So the general rule of thumb is that SX is for fishing 20lb and the MX is for 30lb, but why is this since they both share the same drag?
I was Turners in Pasadena today and noticed they had some good deals. If anybody is interested they have
HXJ Raptor for $297
800L for $209 (with reel seat)
800XLH for $249(with reel seat)
Black Steel 270H for $159 (with reel seat)
I almost bought the Black Steel just cuz it's a good price.
Saltwater baitcasters love em or hate em?
I've noticed in some of these threads there's always one or two guys that always have something negative to say about baitcasters and bass gear. Me personally I love em, I pretty much only use bass gear for 30# and under.
So what says you?
I'm looking for a 9-foot 20 lb bait rod. I've narrowed my choices down to the Black Steel 990, Grafighter 900L, and the CE900XF or the CE900Mag(20-30#)
I know that the UC rod is the most parabolic and is the latest and greatest but does anybody have any experience with the above-mentioned rods...
How do you fish the kicker 25 light the JRI 3 and OCT surface irons? Specifically the retrieval speed. I know on a Tady C you just wind it in and a 45 is a medium slow retrieval rate but for the above-mentioned jigs I have no idea.
It looks like Seeker has a couple new models. One model that caught my eye is Tactic, it looks like it's in direct competition with Cousins Raze series of rods. The SSR line looks nice too.
Do any of u guys have any experience with ese rods?
Have any of you ever used a braid Topshot? I usually use braid to a 3-foot fluorocarbon leader but I've lost quite a few fish this season and I think it's due to lack of stretch in the line so I'm gonna make a line change. I'm thinking braid backing to about 50 yards of mono and maybe a 3 foot...
I can't cast a Tady 45 or a C very well with my Grafighter 800M and Okuma Cortez 12 but I can cast a 3/4oz. Swimbait a mile with my lexa 300 on a Cousins 808 and on my 196 and squall 15 I can cast a sardine even farther.
So my my question is what's the issue, me the rod or the reel?
