    NEW TO TEREZ

    I too use to fish the MH as a 30# rod. I’ll still take my H out once in a while with 40#. Better rods out there now that fish braid better. IMO.

    Braided line to mono then to fluorocarbon why?

    All personal preference. I did braid to 30-100’ of mono, to 4’ flouro leader last year after pulling hooks on a couple fish two years ago. It’s worked out well for me.

    FLAT FALL FISHING

    Has anyone tied a blood knot at certain depths on their line to mark depth instead of a sharpie like I do. Would it hurt the main line at all to tie in like 30# spectra on top to Mark depth on main line?

    Floro other than seaguar?

    The fish have told me different. I’ve got more bites on my milky Hi Seas on two diff blue fin trips then anyone else. One trip on NLA, was only one to get a bite and land a 60#. Is it bait selection? Confidence in it now.

    80 Tilefish jr and MXJ raptor

    My favorite size Avet, have two. Great cast ability. Down fall is 25” per turn in low, absolutely no power/torque in my opinion. Works great for me yoyoing yellow tail. Don’t ever wanna catch a big blue fin on it again.

    Opinions before I pull the trigger

    My first trip with my 7’6” H PCH matched with MXJ Raptor. Wide open rat bite on yellows. Limited out and grabbed this set up and a Tady C and caught a bunch more on the surface.

    Rod suggestion for a Shimano Speedmaster 16ii?

    I think everyone fishes the PCH rods different it seams. Maybe it would be better if we talked drag #’s. With 40# leader and 10# of drag on a 7’6”H and small hook, a 60# blue fin was easy. My opinion is bend in rod puts pressure on the fish.

    Shimano TranX 500 vs Trini 20a

    Avet HXW vs. Penn Torque 60

    The rare earth magnets go on the inside of the reel, no adjustment once adjusted to how much resistance you want. I’ve done, Avets, fathoms and a torque. Personally I like Avets MC with TSI oil in spool bearings. Gives the MC a big adjustment in resistance from 1-5. JMO

    PCH rod report

    I landed a 60# on the 7’6”H in about 15 min on #40 mono to flouro. I liked the way the rod loaded using 10lb drag straight pulled,and small hook. Probably more like 11/12lb fighting the fish tho.

    Blue jb hollow braid

    I could be wrong, but I think Berkley pro spec solid and spider wire stealth solid are the same line. Both are rated same diameter to rated strength. Both act the same how the braid comes unraveled at the end. Heck, if Ali fishes it, it must be good stuff.

    Komodo 471p loud casting

    Probably a bearing or brake race. Brake race you can do easily yourself. Take side plate off and clean the brake race with a q-tip of all grease and dirt. Take a clean q-tip, put a couple drops of thin oil on q-tip and then apply to brake race evenly. That’s where I’d start before bearings.

    The difference between the SXR and MXJR is 4 inches. Yes, I can feel the difference in tourqe between the two. I wanted to love the MXJR cause of its size, just didn’t like the feel having a 65-70 pound blue fin straight up and down. I’ll take my Fth30 or 25 for 50#, plenty of torque then some.

    Power handle on Avet sx raptor?

    Yes, JX Raptor handle arm will fit and is 3 3/8 inches long. I have done this to my SX raptor, MXJ Raptor and JXG2. As far as the grip, I had to drill out the rivet on one, to add an aftermarket grip. Maybe someone knows one that will direct fit.

    Any Okuma PCH reviews?

    Okuma PCH rods vs phenix ?

    I used the PCH 7'6" H 20-50 on a 2.5 day as a 40# stick paired with an MXJ Raptor. I've tested that rod with 10#-12# of drag and it seams perfect. JMO

    Rod recommendation for Lexa 300

    Yes, I used my curado 300 on it yesterday for bass. Today it's going with me paired with Komodo 350, on a 2.5 day. My teramar's are staying home. Not as fast as teramar's in my opinion.Good for braid and short leaders.7'6" 15-30 is the one i have.

    Avet mxj raptor question

    I'm starting to think the 3 inches in low between the MXJ/MXL (25) Raptor, and the SX (22) Raptors makes a difference? Both are 3.8:1 in low. Too bad Avet doesn't, or Can't make a lower low...love the feel of the MXJ Raptor.

    You Avet Critics Crack Me Up#

    I had the same question after servicing my Avets. My conclusion is it happens at low, unrealistic drag settings for a raptor. Once you get past 5 or 6lbs of drag, they smooth out. At least my three do.

    Just purchased an Avet MXL Raptor Pros & Cons?

    No cons in the raptor's in my opinion. After you use it a while, you can improve the reel by using a thinner oil in the spool bearings. I switched all my Avet MC reels with TSI 321. Really made a great reel, better in my opinion.
