  1. Very nice. Mine came in white, so I spray painted them black. After a couple seasons that look like killer whales. White on the bottom and black on top. I kind of like them that way. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  2. I have been yearning for some of those Salmon Candy flashers and flies over here on Lake Michigan. My buddy just bought a load from them...like 8 flashers and flies. They look and feel great. Being the middle of the Winter, he has not tried them out yet and I am afraid that if I wait for Spring, they will be sold out. Guess I will have to bite the bullet.

  3. Thx. I haven’t noticed any difference in planing out wide from the edge of the weight (4) to a 6. So I just keep mine on 4. I use braid dipsies low and braid slide divers high. Seems to work OK. I will still get tangled on sharp turns. I am switching to wire low dipsies now. Hopefully that will give me a little more separation. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  4. Mr 580, that little piece of tubing on the lite bite trigger is ingenious! Thank you. I will copy your technique and claim it as my own. I noticed you have your weight set like mine-right to the edge of the weight. Do you find setting it to “6” doesnt really do anything? Is there a reason why you don’t go out to “6”? I run mine to the edge of the weight too. (A “4” setting). Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  5. Good question right here. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  6. You guys ever just install a Twili Tip on a regular rod(with ceramic guides)? I’m wondering if the 7 strand wire tears them up quickly or if I should just shell out the cash for a Stainless steel eyelit rod? Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. Have any of you guys just put twili tips on your regular rods (with cheap ceramic inserts in the eyelits)? I’m wondering if expensive wire line rods are really necessary. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. For a downrigger I like medium. Its more flexible and you can tighten it down to get a good bow in the rod. For a dipsy, I like medium heavy. The rod is stiffer so it doesn’t bow back too much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. I like 8’6” Diawa Wilderness in Medium Heavy. On sale at FishUSA for $17. They have enough backbone to drag a dipsy and not be bent around too much. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Taking a stab in the dark here, but I don’t think the OP was looking for you term paper on rod building. Congratulations on your 2016 win! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Or you could just buy a $20 Diawa Wilderness. Ha! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. And they are quiet and have very little amp draw. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. The Titanium Finish makes my black boat pop! Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
