    Solid Reel for Bay Bass

    For a bay bass reel that will double as a light calico setup for half day trips I would go with a Daiwa Coastal TWS. You can find them on ebay for about $160 new. It has more line capacity and is much more saltwater resistant than the curado. And it's very comfortable to fish all day. You don't...

    Actually what I was responding to was this And the answer to that is exactly what I said in my original comment. That the tranx 300 and 400 are essentially the same reel, just the 400 is wider.

    Shimano tranx400 hg

    Not even close! So much misinformation on these boards sometimes! First off, the Lexa 400 is not even close to the capacity or class of a Tranx 500. Think of a Tranx 500 as basically a Trinidad 20a with a levelwind. The Tranx 500 holds over 100 more yards of #50 braid then the Lexa 400 does...

    Yeah you have to respond to a bunch of other posts before you can post for the first time. But if you get on there, this bait will sell in about 5 minutes. And you can probably get more like $140-160 for it. But 200+ is pretty high

    Custom 6470H Long Beach Seeker Black Steel

    It's called acid wrapped, spiral wrapped or down wrapped. It eliminates 90%+ of the twisting effect when pulling on a bigger fish. Once you try it, it's hard to go back to standard conventional rods. I currently have 12 custom wrapped rods and all are acid wrapped. I absolutely love it.

    Shimano Any real world reviews on the new Tranx 400

    Don't just go by gear ratio. Inches per turn, or IPT, is more important imo. The 5.8 tranx has an IPT of 30". The same as a Lexa 6.3. So think about how fast you need to be able to swim your jig when deciding on what reel to pick.

    8' Rod for Lexa 400? WTB

    The "average" ocean fishermen usually has more than 1 setup. If $200 for a rod (which isn't that expensive as far as ocean gear goes) is out of your price range, you might want to stop fishing now and take up another hobby! :-)

  111. JTL750

    Shimano Which rod for your Tranx 400HG ?

    It's because it's a 400 sized reel. It will perform much better as a #30 setup than a #40. The higher drags and more pressure of a #40 setup will be better for a tranx 500 The guys who are fishing them on #50 sticks like a Phenix 869, I bet will have issues after this season.

    Garbage. How can you call that a tranx? It doesn't even have 20 pounds of drag! That is not worthy of the tranx name. A Lexa 300 has 22 even. This is just a bigger curado. And if it's built anything like the current curado I's, it's gonna be a piece of crap!

    Best Reel for Black Hole CCS 150g

    #40 power pro actually breaks around #65. The thinner braid cuts through the water easier, so your jig sinks faster. And the #60 is for more bite/abrasion resistance and so you can crank down more on the drag if you hook into a beast.

    Offshore CONDOR 208 Yellowfin to 65+ Bloodbath Massacre 8/25

    Nice jon Ron, way to slay em. I'm gonna have to jump on the big bird soon. I've been out a dozen times this year and still haven't caught a tuna. Not even a bite. I'm starting to seriously doubt my fishing skills. A trip on the bird should lift my spirits and help me to kill this skunk.

    True, but the avet anti reverse dog system is arguably one if the best ever created. Squidco told me they have never had an avet in for service because of a failed dog. They did say that when the original andros came out, that they blew 3 of them up the first week just putting line on them. And...

    Daiwa lexa HD

    Not all, but there are lots of mistakes. It's been like that for over a year too. Seems like lazyness. Phenix is a big name too, you'd think they would proofread better so they weren't misrepresenting their products. No, my rods are barely 6 months old
  364. JTL750

    Daiwa lexa HD

    Yeah they do. There's a mistake on almost every page for the different lines that phenix sells, freshwater and saltwater. You'd think a company that sells $400 rods could afford to have their IT guy fix their website.

    Here's some more pics I just took of my gear
  366. JTL750

    Okuma Metaloids ?

    The metaloid is at least 1/4 inch taller and holds at least 50 more yards of line. Thats not the same thing as the same size.
  367. JTL750

    Daiwa lexa HD

    Perfect example of "don't believe everything you read on the internet." If you look, it also says that the 77ML is rated for 2-6 Oz baits. But I own 2, and I promise you they are 1-3 oz, just like every other length of the ML version. Phenix has dozens of mistakes on their website.
  368. JTL750

    Daiwa lexa HD

    I'm hoping, and assuming, all the parts will be interchangeable with the current lexas. Then I could just put the new stainless gears and sealed bearings in my Lexa instead of buying a whole new reel. Plus I don't like the gold accents on the new HD version.
  369. JTL750

    The 82h is 8'2" #20-45 and 3-8 Oz baits. The MH is 2-6oz
  370. JTL750

    Okuma Metaloids ?

    Not quite. The metaloid is slightly taller and holds more line. My SXJ holds 200 yards of #50 braid and the 5N metaloid held 300. Big difference.
  371. JTL750

    Okuma Metaloids ?

    True, but Avet is still the better choice IMO. I took my metaloid 5ll into Squidco to be serviced and they told me the reel did NOT have an AR bearing, only dawgs. And that eventually the dogs would fail and give me a knuckle bust. The metaloid is smoother, the avet is stronger. The new Andros A...
