  1. Iv always wanted to pair it with a daiwa vadel. If i can find one at the right price then i would snatch it up. but as of now it can wait
  2. I wouldnt buy a reel based on max drag. Smooth is what im after. I picked it up for $250. was an impulse buy. hence no hurry to use it when i have a setup that works
  3. I have a lateo2 110xh thats rated to something similar to 60-150g i think. Bought it was the same reason. But havt used it yet as im yet to find a reel that i like and can afford to pair it with. and always seem to go for my lighter outfit when fishing off the rocks
  4. Im pretty prawn drag nets are legal
  5. My mate has the demon blood 72mh. And compared that to my shimano jewel 802tw. It is a much better rod. Only advantage the jewel has is that it being an 8ft you could use it to stickbait/popper off the rocks We both use saragosa 10k but definitely the demon blood.
  6. Should of swam onto their boat and roughed them up. But in all seriousness. You have their boat rego and could of reported them
  7. Use a razor blade to trim back the cable ties
  8. Never used Ballistol. And i know importing the shimano grease sprays are a pain. While i dont use the service ports as i service my reels after every season. Are the inox mx5 oil dropper bottles an option? i use them to oil my finesse reel bearings and roller bearings. Never had an issue with it dissolving grease.
  9. Nice one. Probably better than the 2 you asked about
  10. I have a 5000fk and used to have a 3000fk. Same build. Only difference is only the 5000fk has shimano carbon washers. While 4000fk and under has felt washers
  11. ci4 is just carbon fire reinforced plastic. i can absolutely guarantee the FK is not an aluminium body as iv taken apart mine many times and it is plastic of some kind. most of shimano reels use CF aluminium spools. But then on the shimano au website shows the ci4 uses hagane body and a ci4 body? just marketing.
  12. Dude, in no way is the FK built of aluminium and the ci4 built out of carbon fibre..........
  13. ci4 are prone to stem twisting. so if you are after a 4000 to throw slugs off the rocks or big snapper off a boat. i would choose an FK over a ci4 for the bigger size
  14. Bundeena wharf is where i fish with my daughter some warm nights Never had an issue with rangers or coppers. but if one does get a "heavy fine" dont blame me
  15. Why not pair the 6000 and 8000 on the terez 30-50lb and see how they feel in your hands
