Hi, do you know if those X flock material is same quality as Japanese shrink people are talking about? At least the part without the X on it. thank you.

Thanks for your input... do you find that size 12 choke is better than going with all size 10 runners? or is it just asthetic in your opinion? I ask because of another change of direction from 12 to 10.

Under-bind question: you can get into a separate discussion/argument about this.... I wouldn't. Others swear by the practice. Hi Zafisher, I'm building the same one now... what distance are you getting from the spool to first stripper guide kw30J and the choke point. I take it kw12 is the choke guide?

KL20H - KL10H - KL5.5M B. KL20H - KL10H - KL6L - KL5.5L Since the blank is a GSB, it bends deeper into the blank, it seems the recommendation is to use the 4 guide reduction train. The layout would end up: KL20H - KL10H - KL6L - KL5.5L - KB4.5 - KB4.5 - KT4.5 x 5 to a LG4.5 ... In the ballpark? Personally I would choose option A based on your 20lb. but nothing wrong with your option B, it should work great. If you are going with your B option above, I would probably use 3 KT4.5 instead of 5 KT4.5 on 8' Lami rod. Total of 5 runners Best
  7. Hi Zafisher: KL20H; KL12H (not the 10H) KL8M; L7L do you feel that KL12H is better suited than kl10h? I was thinking KL20H kl10h kl6m or kl7l then kb6 as running . what is the distance do you get between each of 4 guides setup from stripper to reduction guides? Thanks
  8. any new release date on these RV guides?

  10. I purchased the new oval knob recently. Sorry. Please close thread. Thank you SOL.
  11. I would Definitely get the upgraded chuck. it's worth the investment if going with Alps etc.
  12. Hi, Does anyone know what might be a fair price for used clemen power wrapper? thank you. Edited: looking to purchase one for a spare.
  13. Hello, Looking to buy a used silver van staal oval knob. Thanks.
  14. I have the new 3000 and 4000 EX. Not sure about the old model but new EX I believe the body is sealed with o rings, handle etc. I dunked the EX and I didnt see any water in the spool as well. Not 100% sure if drag is 100% sealed but so far so good. It seems Daiwa is improving on mid price reel. It's smooth as stratic CI4+ if not smoother but not as smooth as new sustain. I think it's an excellent price for the reel. Hope this help.
  15. I believe your question is a good one... under wraps or not. I asked these type of questions whom I learned from as well. For that matter, any questions is a valid question.
