the spin doctors

SPINNING GEAR lets anglers fish small baits on light lines to entice big bites when bulky offerings fail. Today’s spinning reels have evolved exponentially over their predecessors. An overabundance of bearings and a plethora of advanced materials render modern spinners lightweight while turning with an icy smoothness. Innovations in spool designs have alleviated many of the past line twist ills, while drags rival those of top-shelf baitcasters.Likewise, contemporary spinning rods benefit from decades of material advancements Their blanks are engineered supramolecularly. Resins and carbon fibers are amalgamated on a nanotechnology level These spin rods flick baits with surgical precision and deliver shocking sensitivity.The Game & Fish gear test team brawled with the largest redfish in North America armed only with the latest bass gear. Heres what we discovered…

GAME&FISH EDITOR'S CHOICE DAIWA TATULA THE TATULA has been a mainstay of the Daiwa spinning lineup for years. Recent refinements to the baseline have made quantum improvements to the reel. A high-strain, high-density carbon composite chassis anchors the platform, which is light and stiff.Seven strategically placed bearings keep tolerances tight and the Tatula turning with a buttery consistency. The art nouveau inspired crank and paddle grip are as comfortable a grab as you’ll find on a spinner. A bit of tackiness is added to the paddle for a secure grip in wet weather and when fished with sweaty paws.We found the micro-indexed drag let us dial-up just the right amount of resistance, and that helped us put more ill-tempered fish in the boat. The air rotor, a signature…

“please, no more exposed threads!”

WHY IS IT that a few rod manufacturers insist on subjecting us bass fishermen to exposed reel seat threads? These threads seem to be the only thing you feel while working a bait.During the test, there were several great rods, whose only downfall was the exposed threads. Most rod manufacturers have solved this problem, with creative foregrips that cover the threads.For those manufacturers who haven’t, we implore you — “please, no more exposed threads!”Along those same lines, hook holders are great, however, manufacturers need to spend some time considering where to place them on the rod. An ill-placed hook keeper can be distracting when placed where your fingers or hand are in constant contact with it. Plus, sometimes when you cast, a poorly placed hook-keep can snag the…
