  1. Oh man. ....looked like a great day on the water- experienced boatie doing it solo with everything under control... but that ending πŸ˜‚ Dave I swear I was laughing with you not at you.... and right at the end - just for a moment I thought you were going to say the stainless shackle snapped πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚ glad you didn’t damage yourself ! cheers and thanks for sharing cheers Zoran
  2. Re brand ... I can only comment on their "higher" end stuff... Remember Diawa are largely a wholesaler - and under Aus consumer law, your first port of call regarding warranty issues is the point of sale - the vendor.

  10. Live jigging ? .... I saw him pull his pants up ... wonder if he had to change his .....
  11. Hahaha ... yes ... there's lots of sites that give you their theory, but theory with some experience and local knowledge is GOLD πŸ₯‡. ... and as you now know, lots of videos show you deep drop techniques but they tend to focus on the catching part ... not the fishing part ! Bahahaha 🀣 Anyway, I can get similar line tension to when we deep drop, but what I can't get is for the line to be wet when spooled under load. I guess I could soak the spool in a bucket over night etc etc ... but have not gone that far yet. Also, braid ships with waxes and coatings (part of the manufacture proce
