    Good fun on "light gear"

    Very nice!! I was about to say it was a tackle house popper haha Hey I have a question about playing kings when you're a bit outgunned. Do you let them run? Or lock up the drag?

    New Gear - Zenaq + Catalina

    Very nice! From Alan Hawk's review of the new Catalina, it's basically on par with the Saltiga for a considerable amount less. Same gears, drag and anti-reverse.

    sharpening knives

    I use whetstones too, if you have the time to learn, it's well worth it. Really satisfying =D

    Knife sharpeners

    I use two tiers of whetstones 400grit: quite rough, good for blunt knives, gives them a new edge 1000grit: fine, makes the edge sharp, for general use it's really good, probably equivalent sharpness to buying a quality knife out of the box and if you really care for your knives 6000grit: really fine, gives it a laser edge, good for cutting proteins (meat, fish, etc), with an edge this fine it'll get blunt quickly when cutting hard objects and may chip quite easily if cutting into bones, use this for a sashimi slicer like yanigiba or sujihiki, but not as a fillet knife unless you want to sharpen often using whetstones you won't need sharpening steels or gadgets, just some water and the stones, but it takes time to learn. good luck! =D

    tails getting bitten off

    could try some zman or snapback plastics, they are stronger and don't really get their tails bitten off

    using soft plastics

    I found most things hook themselves, so even if you feel a bite just continue whatever retrieve you were doing. Or maybe slow it down a bit.
