  1. I cut the handle and the butt end off at the edge and used masking tape and epoxy to ensure a snug fit. The front half of the one piece rod is very thin as you can tell. It had enough room to slide through the handle and to the butt. I had the idea after watching a rod building video. I am no means a professional nor do I build rods. I just made the rod so I didn’t have to go buy something specific just to go ice fishing. I moved back down to SC btw.
  2. Honestly, it’s my first baitcaster and I was hooked on it so I use it for everything. The 30lb braid allows me to fish at the dam, lake, or river. I use 12-15lb flouro. Heck, I gotta tell you a story about when I moved to Michigan. My wife broke my tatula ml spinning rod in half and I cut the handle off and attached it to the front half of the rod for ice fishing. It didn’t look right with a 3000 sized spinning reel I had so I used my baitcaster on it. I never switched out the Braided line and was successful in catching yellow perch and bluegill with 15lb flouro leader.
  3. Then I’ll take it for the asking price ship of 140 please
  4. After you adjusted the spool tension for that little knock, you don’t have to adjust it anymore. You are depending on only the mag brakes to control the spool. It doesn’t matter the weight of the lure. Just go up the dial for lighter weights and go down for heavier baits. I have ave the Daiwa Tatula SV and frequently throw Ned rigs and wacky weightless zoom black finesse worms with 30lb braid.

  6. Closed no interest
  7. It has been a beater reel for my brother. I wasn’t impressed with it when I first bought it in 2015. Loud when retrieving and slop in the rotor. Also had some back play in the anti reverse. For my brother, it does fine but I thought it would be more refined for the 200 bucks I bought it for. Also, the cap for the other side of the handle broke off at the base of the cap and left the threads in the hole so no more water resistant.
  8. It will replace my current fuego and ballistic ex reel
  9. I’m getting one with second Christmas hopefully to pair with my favorite all purpose bass rod. Tatula ML spinning.
  10. Selling like new GoPro Hero 5 session. Used only once. No box. Asking 160 shipped, firm. Comes with the camera, housing, and a generic usb-c cord for charging. No SD included.
