  1. Fished once. Perfect condition. Low gear 5.1 with clicker. 30lb Jbraid spooled on. $330 local pickup Queens/Nassau $340 shipped
  2. Already have the BV-300 in the 5.1 ratio. Couldn’t help but pull the trigger on the older (2011) version of the Ocea Jigger in the power gear. I’ve already fluked and togged with the BV. It was effortless. Casts pretty well as well. Holds the same amount of line. I know it’s not anywhere near as smooth. I’m curious if it is indeed that much more powerful than the Ocea Jigger or are we just looking at drag numbers? Which will hold up better over time, which is more protected again bearing corrosion (rinsing down the reels after each use taken into consideration)? I know it’s apples to oranges in and lever vs star comparison. But for fluke, striped bass, tog, which is the better overall reel? And does the Ocea Jigger have enough power and drag to wreckfish with?
  3. Was just wondering if anyone has used this reel for distance casting from the shore/bank. What your experiences were. I only want to know about this reel please leave out any other distance casting reels. Thanks and merry christmas.
  4. Up for sale is a like new BV-300 in the 5.1 gear ratio with clicker. It’s been taken to the pier once for a few casts and then cleaned off. It’s spooled with 30lb jbraid. $350 local pickup Queens/Nassau $360 shipped Will also trade for a Saltist 20P plus cash my way.
  5. A question, and a speculation, on "twin drags." This comes in response to Kilsong's preference for the IRT Dual Drag reels, but isn't limited to them. I don't own anything with dual drags. If you do and have a comment, make sure you tell us what reel it is that you own. I have assumed, all along, that the real value of a dual-drag or twin-drag design isn't the ridiculously high loads you can place on the reel. The gain is in drag smoothness as line is taken, the diameter of the loaded spool shrinks; since the lever arm (distance from the surface of the loaded spool to the spool axle) shrinks, leverage declines, and the actual drag load increases. However contra-intuitive, you'd have to reduce the drag as the diameter of the loaded spool is reduced in order to maintain the same load on the drag. A related thought or two. First, current braids are skinnier then those of just a few years ago, never mind mono. This reduces spool shrinkage when Moby Whale climbs on, and takes off. So there's less need for twin drags then there might have been. Second, modern reels can, with a single drag setup, exert ridiculous amounts of pressure on a fish, enough to pull me over the side of any boat, if I'm careless. There's a Torque 300 in my basement, lined with a solid braid for jigging tuna. I never used it ... the box says it can exert 29 lbs. of pressure. Having played with it, I believe the blurb. Zcoker has remarked that he catches blacktip sharks on a Stella 8000, with a rated top drag of 60 lb. SIXTY LBs on a surf reel? That's wild. That last anyone would see of me, with that much drag on a surf fish, would be the drag marks of two feet and a belly. And my nose. Do those of you who fish an Accurate reel with two drags, Avet or Maxel with what they call two drags, Okuma Makaira, IRT DD or anything else, feel you're getting something for your extra bucks? I suspect that Accurate, AFAIK the first twin-drag user, shows the best result. They put a drag washer and pressure plate on each side of the spool, on their lever drags. No doubt they fenced off their design with lots of patents, as broadly written as possible. Avet has had - I suspect - to step around that arrangement. Maxel, I think, got in a patent fight with Accurate, and lost. The Makaira gets great love on Alan Tani's site, but that may or may not be because of their drag design. Accurate's TwinSpin spinning reel did not get love from Alan Hawk in its' first iteration, and user reports are few. Ladies, Gentlemen, persons of indeterminate gender, those who are confused, the floor is open. Kilsong, I'm going to start another thread with IRT - specific questions.
  6. This question is inspired by Beastly Backlash's "Reels for Sharks" thread, which, as of this post, is still on the page. Also, it's 11 F outside, and college football doesn't interest me. Accurate was, AFAIK, the first firm to the American market with dual drag surfaces, one on each side of the spool. Okuma liked the idea well enough so that the Makaira reels also use a dual-drag system. (I don't know whether Okuma licensed Accurate's patents, or whether they developed their own, or whether they're too big and rich for Accurate to be able to afford a courtroom fight over patent rights.) A question for those anglers here who have fished with either a Makaira or one of Accurate's dual-drag products (Boss Extreme, Dauntless Extreme, or ATD). Do these reels actually do a better job of tiring and landing fish? The design superiority of braking a spool by washer pressure on both sides is clear. But does it show up in real-world usage?
  7. Hey SOL, I was looking into buying a reliable, durable and just as important an accurate scale. I was thinking of going with the good o estaboga 60 lipper/scale but its hard to justify hat price for the product in my opinion, but then again I have never handled 1 myself. I recently seen a fishing friend with a Manley scale that he used to weigh a nice bass I caught and it seemed like a very accurate and durable scale with some other telling me the same. So my question is how good are these Manley scales? Do they rust easily? Are they very accurate? if so, I might just purchase 1 for myself =]
