Yes Accurates are expensive, but if money is no object, then that factor is out of the equation. If I had the money, I would have Accurates, but I don't so I don't have them.

You may want to...

In the 30 class size reels, I think you will be doing yourself a disservice if you don't look at the Avet Pro 30W. Its drags are better suited for braid/spectra and the open topless frame puts it way...

Not a straight pull off the reel. Feed your line through your guides on your rod and then attach to a scale or use the bucket / water method. The guides add friction and some drag so you want to...

One important thing to make sure you do if you make your own bars is to balance the side chains so one side is not heavier than the other. This is easy to do by just hanging the bar by the middle...

Hey Gus,
Sorry I have been out. You do just like Backtothesea said. The pliabond is used on the last 1/4in to flatten the frayed end. Then you apply the catalyst and let dry. Then apply the JB glue....

With an Avet 50, you should be able to pull all of the Old Salty planers up to #32. I have not tried it, but with 60lbs of drag I would think the Avet 50 will pull even a #32.

One thing on the JB glue is to make sure you let the catalyst dry before applying the glue.....just thought I would offer that up.

Not sure how stainless steel keeps the baits "colder better and longer" than aluminum since aluminum thermal conductivity is about 15 times that of stainless steel. As long as you have ice in the...

I am no expert with knots, but I think the best connection would be to tie a bimini in the mainline 100lb PP. Then buy a 100lb mono topshot from Basil with a loop already spliced on one end of it. ...

This sounds good to me if you have larger BFT in your area. It is overkill for the smaller BFT, but you will be ready for just about anything. Make sure your rod is at least an 80lb class rod. Also,...

The decision for 80lb or 100lb mono is yours. If you can get 100yds of 100lb mono and don't mind the thicker line even though you may not need it, then so be it. If you want a 100lb class setup, then...

Yea the top framed reels may be stronger per se, but they are also heavier. The Avet 30W is a topless frame and designed that way, and it still pulls more drag than the Penn 30VSW. The Penn 30VSW...

Before you go to the Avet 50W, get the Avet 30W. It will pull 35lb of drag at strike and still hold 600yds of 100lb spectra plus a 100yd 80lb mono topshot. (or even a 50-75yd 100lb mono topshot).

Basil can do that. You will just buy a topshot from him and connect it to your mainline with a spliced loop. If you have him load the line, he will splice in a loop for you in the mainline, make the...

Thanks Bull for the reference. :)

Well that is the complete opposite of us. My dad's VSWs showed much more wear than our Avets, and our Avets had more use. For us, it just does not make sense to pay more money for an equal product,...

I agree with contendernut as well....Avet 30W. We have 6 of them and as he said you get about 600yds of 100lb JB hollow on them with almost 100yds of 80lb mono topshot if you fill it up full and...

Gus: If you do end up going with an external vacuum sealer, the Cabela's CG-15 is a very good unit, won't overheat, very wide sealing strip, and very high level commercial quality.

Good luck,
