    Surface iron reels comparison

    Awesome group of iron chunkers you have there. For me the Newell 332G is the reel I’m most comfortable with - like the fact it’s light and the spool shuts down fast and seldom seems to birds nest. However, my Torium 20hg is a close second!

    New Shimano Speedmaster II LD 2-Speed

    New stiff rods!

    Is it just me? All the new rods seem to be getting stiffer, quite a bit so. If your fishing big fish or heavy yo-yo I get it. However, I’m a guy who likes a little parabolic action. Is fiberglass going away in name of lighter stiff sticks?

    Does the drag increase on a lever drag as more line comes out?

    Well this does pretty much say it all. Knew I could get answers from Bloody Deck types, Thanks
  121. kelppaddydaddy

    Does the drag increase on a lever drag as more line comes out?

    Is it my imagination, or does the reel drag actually increase over the initial setting when a significant (say 50 to 100 yards or more) of line comes out?

    JX surface iron castability

    I'm going to second this, having a JX M/C that is one of my favorite reels. Tried it on quite a few occasions, but always end up reverting back to a star drag for casting purposes. Yo-Yo'ing the JX is great. The long range guys like the JX, HX Series for wahoo bombs though.

    The right Avet for a 700M Grafighter

    Betting that the Avet SX would fit a 14 year old best - I fish the JX with a 700m - Mx with 700ml (favorite overall rig with 25lbs) - 700l with SX has caught me some pretty nice fish upwards of 30lbs. with 20 to 25 test.

    Pacific Queen, Aztec, Holiday, or New Lo-an?

    Took the Pacific Queen a week ago - really great crew and skipper, very impressed. Yea, parking sucked however, Fishermans Landing is close to the overflow parking so to me it's not that big of a deal. Just make sure you got exact change to put in numbered slots - $6 a day. Tight Lines!

    Legend vs Pac Star vs Aztec?

    Ditto what CHUBACA6 said - fished all them alot, still bounce between Legend and Pacific Star depending on whether I'm in attack or comfort mode - attack mode being the Legend, comfort mode being the Pacific Star.

    Looking For Some Advise/Tips On Buying A New Reel

    Sounds like a JX would serve your purpose better - if you fill it with 25 to 30 lb straight mono line, capacity will not be a issue, spectra needed to go 40lb though. Your options for straight mono on the mx are about maxed out with 25lb test in my opinion. Hate to fish with less then 250 yds on...

    For trade or sell - JX and an MXJ

    I had the MXJ, MXL, and JX - traded them all in for Trinidads. Just never liked the way they felt with the drag settings loaded up. True Trinidads are over priced, but sure feel great! Best thing is I got some killer deals on BD on some of them! I'm pretty high on the tld stars too - keep a tld...

    black pearl 2 day?

    I might throw in a good word about the Legend, it's my favorite boat out of Seaforth - sorry to hear some had a bad trip on it. The only issue I had is when they had a light load, and it turns out bait tank pump is out - maybe, then we get moved to a smaller boat? One wonders.
