    just had a really good conversation with ZZZZZ and i guess i need to clarify cause he is right..... you don't need a 2-speed reel for 15-30#... short pump it and get those cranks in....more line getting back on your spool anyways with a higher ratio... what are you gonna do? short pump in low...

    Which hook for local yellowtail?

    i think he's talking about when you catch a fish on NON ringed hook when you get a wedged corner jaw set sometimes the line frays when the knot slides around in the hook eye, rubbing the sharp part.. some brands have really sharp edges where the eye of the hook ends at the hook shaft. really bad...

    Huges v.s Gracie

    i've trained w/ gi for 3 years, then went to vale tudo.. my experience for sure is less than yours, but for him to use a gi wouldn't it give Hughes far, far more advantages? when training vale tudo it's much harder to control your opponent when like you said, he's all sweaty.. this is too...
  447. vellocity

    Huges v.s Gracie

    yeah, i agree.. Baroni's pretty one dimensional..standup.. but still pretty very very impressive on his feat.. don't you think UFC is pushing it towards a more exciting standup fights now though? 3, 5 min rounds to get the damage done? i hear fans booo when fighters are on the ground...

    i'm so interested to know.. how is Royce using his gi to his advantage against someone who is not?

    Huges v.s Gracie

    the bottom line is this fight will be a novelty.. ok, maybe not a novelty, but one to test the ages.. like Ali vs. Tyson, Kobe vs. Jordan in their prime, would be interesting.. i'd eager to see Gracie's standup strikes.. Gracie is not a KO artist, look at the his records posted above...
  450. vellocity

    Huges v.s Gracie

    roll with gi, roll without and have your sparring partner keep his gi on.. you will have more offense than he will.. you can control him better, you can trap an arm alot easier, more chokes when you use the gi. how the gi helps Royce if his opponent is not wearing one, i want to know...
  451. vellocity

    Huges v.s Gracie

    the gi is only a disadvantage.. in Jiu Jitsu, both fighters use a gi and you have submissions using the gi to choke.. this is MMA.. the gi will only be hot for Royce and more opportunities for Hughes.. Hughes is in for a 3 round decision.. and IMO the UFC is protecting him.. BJ's return...

    Accurate....Cast Control ?

    sorry, i should actually ANSWER your questions cause i had both to compare.. yes, the cast control does work.. it does/can slow the spool down in freespool.. no, i don't think it's worth the upgrade... i ended up selling my 270 and 870 with the cast control..
  471. vellocity

    Accurate....Cast Control ?

    cast control only gives it another "hole" to get saltwater into the guts... they upgraded the cast control clip from a rubber O ring to a plastic clip, so the knob doesn't fall off anymore.. but still, i'd say the cast control is not needed... like Misuse said, the spool is too heavy...

    6463XXX or XXXX rod for 15 day trip?????

    i'm new to this too but i listened well to the vets and what they used... i really liked the 6463 XXXH.. if you use the rail the longer rod can keep solid pressure without the rod bottoming out on the wide rails of the bow, especially the outside part of the rail.. my dad didn't like the...

    THE RP REPORT 11/15-11/25

    WTF is right! i also got lucky i got mine on 60#...would have been different if a 300# bit and i would have wasted an opportunity of a lifetime.. but it gets frustrating trying to get bit and i'm like a A.D.D. fisherman, always changing, always trying to be different than the other 25 or so...

    130#JB hollow backed for more capacity, then splice 100' of 200#JB hollow for more strength and abrasion resistance for the most stressed part of the battle around the boat.. the best feeling is when you get the 200#JB wound onto your spool.. i did this with all my 30 sized reels.. on my...

    PV next year, anyone interested?

    i'm not invited to this party either but I HAVE done the above as a kid fishing in Hawaii... 8' swells? that's a doable day in the Kauai Channel off Kaena Point.. just ask Bertram31 in a few months after he gets settled in on Oahu, he's in for some fun when the tradewinds kick in and the Ahi...

    Accurate Reel max drag at strike?

    so true.. never a need to go pass strike! from Alantani's rebuild on the Platinium 2 speeds the internal drag knob looks similar as the single speeds.

    BIG THANKS to StandUpAngler for the AVETs

    i'm a FULL ON tackle ho so SUA's gear was in good hands.. looked after, taken cared of, spray bottle washed after each day, corrosion X'd and ready to go back to him..

    Accurate Reel max drag at strike?

    Accurates kick ass! wish i could afford those Platinums! those are winches! i almost got a gaff in a 150-160# on my 10 day trip with a 870XM and 40#! the most fun i had the whole trip....it was like a cat and mouse/david and goliath with that fish, long stale mate battle trying NOT to wake...

    What I'd like to see from Avet...

    hey Rick what about Avet handles similar to the Tiagra A type handles?? the handles on the big Avets are slippery while in the heat of battle... the Tiagra A handles are epic, big grip, easy to wind down on.. thanks Nelz

    BIG THANKS to StandUpAngler for the AVETs

    big props to George(SUA)!!! he lent me a Avet 50wide and Avet SDS 50 for my 10 day(doesn't hurt to be over prepared) i used both as back ups the 50wide with 150# momoi long shot straight tie to hook the SDS as a backup short topshot setup.. if felt great to know these reels were ready...

    It's a bird ...........it's a plane..........it's..........

    absolutely fricken unbelievable.... 300# when it hit the deck no doubt and in a few months the smaller one would have been 300# for sure!! there are 350#'s swimming amongst those fish for sure!! go get 'um Branman!!!! they'll be eating the paint off the boat for sure!
  649. vellocity

    OMG Santa Accurate and Seeker came home

    you're supposed to handline in Hawaii!! it's called the Portuguese Pump... one guy does it all.. leave the rod in the rod holder, left hand pulls the line from the stripper roller to the reel while the right hand simutaneously gets a crank... haha! the fish will see that bling-bling and...

    Q 105 Nelz and his Dad

    thanks Brandon. the crimp flew back and cut the the crew's hand inbetween his fingers.. it slingshot back through the guides and hit him where he was palming the reel spool.. again, it broke off when he was pulling straight, like a tug a war, not a bend in the rod.. the hollow spectra...

    Q 105 Nelz and his Dad

    i think i'm realizing that crew bag on all the new shit and new styles of fishing long range cause they don't use them, nor can a boat afford to set up passengers on a boat rig this way... whether or not they KNOW the benefits or results very questionable, but either way they support what the...
