Re: 8wt rod advice

The Link had a made in China sticker on the bottom of the fighting butt.

Loop to loop connections for me.

All I fish is 8wt (largemouth & stripers) & 9wt (stripers) rods. I blind splice the backing forming a loop large enough to pass the fly line spool through. ...

Re: Galvan Torque T-8 or Ross Momentum 4?

Well, I decided on going with the Galvan Torque. There was a point when I was thinking I can stretch the budget. I almost pulled the trigger on some Abel Super 8's. In the end, I decided that I...

Re: Galvan Torque T-8 or Ross Momentum 4?

Other than the Lamson, the reels I looked at all seem to be about that weight. Galvan Torque, Ross Momentum LT, Nautilus CCF, Abel Super 8, & Tibor Everglades all were right about 8oz. I assumed...

Galvan Torque T-8 or Ross Momentum 4?

I'm considering either the Galvan Torque T-8 or the Ross Momentum LT 4. This will be for use on a 8wt and/or 9wt rod being used for stripers. I'm guessing that these reels shouldn't limit me if I...

Re: Sage Z-Axis 890-4 line?

I practiced casting the Z-Axis with the Outbound Short 8wt today. It really loads the rod compared to the SA Bass Bug 8wt line on the other reel.
