Wow competition for the BFS reel segment is getting heated up.

Ark Gravity BFS reel retails for $149.99.  It costs less than the Shimano Curado BFS at $209.99 and is supposed to deliver performance near that of the Shimano Aldebaran BFS that retails currently for $469.99.

They are a new player into this.  However if they deliver on performance endurance like that of Shimano, it would be a winner.  Shimano reels when cared for will lasts 20 yrs but typically start to wear out about 10 yrs old.  Even when fished hard they typically lasts more than 5 yrs.  Unlike most other cheaper reels typically lasts one season of use and barely carry over 2 or 3 years.

nice.  The double hook set up is so dang dangerous  :D

There's a reason why I have that long 9' rod though.  I thought about getting a 12' rod but I really don't do that much kind of pole dip fishing anymore.

There's something about old age.  Gray hairs.  Gosh, now I see them grays, even with my blindish eyes.  :D

For 2024 the Shimano Twin Power freshwater spinning reel is getting a new generation.  :D

The specs on the newer one is doing away with the titanium nitride spool lip.  Gosh, so pretty much no more Shimano spinning reels will be using a titanium nitride spool lip anymore.  Well until the new one actually comes out.  Let's see what it will be.

As far as I know the clearance Twin Power sure went fast at the Shackle Warehouse.

Probably more wishing this season rather than ice fishing.

Shimano...SLX 70A casting reel

This one is supposed to one up the just recently released SLX 70 MGL.  It's all about the spool.  The Magnum Lite spool that's lighter in weight in comparison to the standard spool.  The 70A comes with the latest iteration the Magnum Lite III spool that is in likeness to their Aldebaran BFS reel with the MGL III spool.

When comparing the SLX 70 to the equivalent Curado 70 of both in MGL designation and at price point of $150 vs $250 with near identical parts in everything.  The SLX should be a winner.

Welcome to rain season.  :D

What's even more sick is all the lawyer fees and those who are making off with that mulah.

It's real but over shopped to be even more eye catching... :D  So in the end it's kind of faked.

Shimano BT Spin Bait

The Shimano BT Spin Bait is an ultra compact and super versatile tailspin bait that is perfect for mimicking small forage. Molded with a small shad profile body shape and a unique lightweight blade design, the BT Spin Bait produces enticing flash and flutter on the retrieve and the fall to lure fish into biting. It also gives anglers the ability to fish it with a horizontal retrieve in open water or use a lift-and-fall technique for vertical jigging. The perfectly shaped underside enables it to sit stationary when it hits the bottom to mimic a frightened baitfish as well. Covered in Shimano’s Scale Boost technology to add another layer or realism, the Shimano BT Spin Bait can cover the entire water column with outstanding efficiency.
