Re: Off-season gear-up: looking for advice on baitcasters

The 200i was a fine reel and if you can find one, will probably be on sale since the Curado K replaced it. From what I have read, the K has been well received in the fishing community and has been said to be the netter reel of the two. This is of course just from review material I have read. I have ...

Re: Balsa and other wood crankbaits - Who uses them?

Steve, I have found a few custom builders that have exactly what you are looking for. They are promoted on Facebook mostly but I had asked this question within another forum and got some really good replies. I just figured if there was somewhere local that was doing it, I might as well try to suppor...

Re: Balsa and other wood crankbaits - Who uses them?

Balsa and other wood crankbaits - Who uses them?

Hey guys,

I've been contemplating getting into balsa cranks and have discussed this with a few of my friends.

Just wondering if anyone here still uses them and if so, what their favorite brand is. I currently have one Bagley's I totally forgot I bought but am looking for some other options.

Adam
