    BX2-500 vs 600N: Line Capacity - in reality, not specs online

    Okuma definitely has a winner with the special edition models as they took Alan Tani's advice and are now packing the non spool bearings completely with grease. They are also deshielding the spool bearings and using a light oil to improve freespool straight from the factory. Ever since I have...

    Accurate 30T vs. Okuma MAK20IISEA

    Have both and fish both. Like them equally. The mak being $400 cheaper definitely helped my purchasing decision when I added another reel to my arsenal...
  322. yft1979

    Opinion. Avet or Mak?

    Mak 20 vs avet 30= Mak all day long. Lighter spool better and gearing. The avet 30 low gear is a bit high imho.

    how do you wash spectra?

    Though its a bit of work, I wash all my spectra with the swifty spool then wind it loosely onto an old reel that I no longer use and then wind from there onto the intended reel using the drag of the unused reel to tension the line. Packs it nicely, but does take a bit of time...

    Need gun dork help

    Just buy a black one and paint it! For a good AR at a decent price watch palmetto state armory for their daily deals. Last week they had a stock m4 for 699.

    Yeah its the bullard sapphire metallic.
  487. yft1979

    No name bass stick

    Not sure what kind of blank this is. It was cheap. Feels like a decent 8-15lb bass stick. Bullard inca gold, bullard blue and black tiger.

    Here is an old shimano teramar that was well fished. Cork was destroyed and many guides were broken. Turned the rear grip into a split and my buddy was pleased with the final results.

    Knot's for 100lb + topshot

    I see many people picked the double sd knot. Yes it is the strongest knot, but it is also the largest. Are people actually fishing this knot or just picking the strongest? I rarely witness people using or tying that knot on my trips?
  497. yft1979

    Good wahoo combo?

    765l or ml. No need for a long stick when casting raider/bombs.

    Nail Knots

    What do you mean by splices? Dual wall leaders only work with doing loop to loop connections. Wont work with an inline splice. I take a 7-8' piece of 130 or 200 spectra depending on what leader material I am using pull half of it into itself leaving a small loop. Make sure the end of the...

    Nail Knots

    I was not aware there was a debate to whether the nail knot w/nub was a secure connection? I thought all the evidence has shown that the nail knot was as good as any other connection. And has been proven by many long range veterans. Why add crimps to that? Purdy sure the only debates going...

    Yo-Zuri Fluorocarbon

    Yep pink yo zuri for me. Fished it exclusively last year with zero probs. Been picking it up at the Fred hall shows $60 for 3 30m spools of 100/130. Will try some of the power carbon in april

    "Cloning" a Seeker......

    What actually makes a marlincaster? Always read about them, but have no idea.
  506. yft1979

    Nail Knots

    Again why waste time with crimps when you are already tying a nub. Just add a couple more nails on top of the nub and be done. This is already proven to be 100% and you won't have crimps going thru your guides.
  507. yft1979

    Yo-Zuri Fluorocarbon

    . Quite a bit cheaper

    Tackle Tray

    This is the 7200? Correct Jim?
  511. yft1979

    Tackle Tray

    Opened mine up enough to where it now holds 6 of the standard size plano boxes. 2 in the jig area and 4 in the standard area. Put a 1.5" tall block underneath to get the desired height I liked. Box is the 7100 size
  512. yft1979


    Any more then 2 or 3 can be mayhem. Especially with folks fishing balloons and fly lined baits all getting tangled.
  513. yft1979

    7.62X39 vs 5.56 upper????

    Even plinking can build up a lot of heat in an AR platform with semi auto fire. Chrome lining not only helps dissipate heat it is great at preventing corrosion in a cmv barrel. Stainless barrels are a whole different scenario. Just becuase you arent repelling an advancing vc unit, you may...
  514. yft1979

    7.62X39 vs 5.56 upper????

    I think barrel wear will matter most with what the barrel is made out of, and if it is chrome lined or not. 20000+ rounds can be expected with a good chrome barrel before you start losing accuracy. I have no experience with the 762x39 but it will be easier to find quality magazines for 556...

    Setup for 5-8 Long Range trip

    On the cheap, id get a used jx 2 speed. People have mentioned the 700m, and the 700h. Id split that and go 700mh. Perfect combo for 15lb yellows to 100lb yft @ rocas alijos!

    polymer complete lowers for AR's

    They should connect to a standard upper no problem. But I don't think I'd use one though. If you are looking to save money wait for blem lowers to show up online. Palmetto state just had some for 59 bucks. Add a cheap lpk and stock kit to it and you can be in a complete lower for 160 or so.

    Plenty good enough! The Shogun's boat trolling rods are old newells. And they drag marauders all over hurricane bank with them.

    Which boats don't offer loaner gear?

    Yep, talking to a couple from colorado who rented all their tackle from the landing my last trip. They paid and arm and a leg and then some. Gear wasn't in the best working condition either. 2 speed mechanism not working properly, smoked drags.
