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.

This year, other deals have been better than Blaque Phryday.

Shackle Warehouse is only offering 15% off standard....In other previous years it has been 20% off.  Still wait, Syber Mawnday is still coming.

Ugly Stik Carbon Catfish Spinning Rod

Here's one to think about and almost unheard of for catfishing.  Normally people want the fiberglass poles that bends for catfishing.  Well this one is graphite so it's more like just for normal lure fishing and stuff.  Unfortunately they gone back to using just stainless steel line guides with no inserts.  Sure it's more reliable for tough treatment, but that also means it will shred your braid lines more so too.  Guess what also, the price hike on these rods.  They expected you to pay a retail of $90. 

Weird lengths available in MH 7'6" and H 9'6" are gonna be different for comparison of other rods. 

Compared to the old Ugly Stick Catfish rod in white that retailed for $50.  The old one had ceramic inserts plus glow inserts in the upper tip section, while current model went to trash with plain stainless steel line guides and no inserts.

Ugly Stik Catfish Special Spinning Rod

Which is kind of a duplicate of the standard white Catfish rod, only they expanded with additional longer lengths available in 9', 10', and 12' lengths and it's orange colored or copper orange.  While getting an increased price tag of $60.

I was thinking about checking out some updated products but with the cheaper stainless steel line guides, nah nope.  Unless one wants to replace their braid lines often.

This whole thing just reminds of some 80's Mad Max surreal mishap but in anime and zombies.  :D

I like it in a sort of way of totally unrealistic appeal of Akira animotion movie.  Just enjoy and don't fret about the stuff that makes absolutely no sense.

It's sort of goes back and forth with cross plotting or something.  :D

Sort of a watch but not fully immersed into show.  How are witchers made plot.  How are mages made plot.  How the big monolith stones are connected with some portals plot.
