  1. I liked the film. I thought Blue Ruin by the same director was better, though. He's made another one, newer one (I haven't seen it yet) which is supposed to be about a werewolf - or maybe someone pretending to be a werewolf.
  2. Looks like there'll be a 14000 PG model. Plat has put out a video which shows more of the reels to be released than I've seen before.
  3. Buddha, we don't have the Caldia in New Zealand. They have it in Australia, and I think there were something like 3 different versions of it. It was more of the Daiwa silliness - there were three or so versions of it available at the same time, with there being some spec differences between the different versions. But those were the previous Caldias. The new Caldia LT is different - I don't think it's just a shallow spool reel. I think they are offered in the full range of sizes including the 6000 size. The Sol has got more bearings than the Caldia and is about 60 Australian dollars more expensive.
  4. Sure is! The Certate's a looker. Yeah, I was a bit disappointed there's no 6000 size. Maybe it'll come later. It does mean my 4000 HD has not been succeeded yet. The Sol is a little higher spec than the Caldia - but I don't think there's much difference between them. Both are made in China. I imagine the Certate LT is made in Japan.
  5. The new Certate has been announced - it's been announced that it's coming out soon. Looks like it's an LT reel - several sizes of reel.
  6. The Sol reels - Inshore shows a pic of one, have been sold in NZ for a little while now. They are actually a slightly strange orange colour (though the reel looks gold in the picture) - not a very attractive colour.
  7. ^It looks like 30 lb j braid has a diameter more like PE 4 than PE 3, looking at Aquaholik's line testing results.
  8. It might be a bit understated, what it says on the spool of that reel. I think I have 300 m of PE 3 on mine. I don't know if 30lb J Braid in the US is PE 3 or not.
  9. Maybe you could get a Power Gear Stradic from Japan - order it online.
  10. Henry Gilbey highly regards the Twin Power XD and has written about the reel a little bit, briefly reviewed it. Google his name if you're interested. He's not catching very large fish with his Twin Power, though - European bass.
  11. Hi Ksong, do you think there will eventually be Black Hole rods for sale which are made for this kind of fishing? A rod like that would probably be good for yellowtail kingfish here in NZ.
  12. Wicked! I bet that was a fight. I'd love to get one of them off the rocks.
  13. I have not seen that braid before, Shimano Pitbull. You'll have to tell us how it goes.
  14. Pretty funny!
  15. More wind knots with the Saltiga than the Stella, do you think? Or have you noticed no difference of that kind between the reels?
