that tiny indent for the bait stop is actually now better.  it's a clear click.  you can't miss it.

It may not be very productive,
but it's sure going to be interesting!

What would the drag curve be on a 12 and 16 VISX.  Mark Romero is installing them and I was wondering if the freespool will allow a knife jig from 250g or sinker rigs to drop easily?
Fishhard!

I just ground down a set for mark and mailed them just before we hit the road. It's looking more like 4 degrees for the visx's and 5 degrees for the Fathoms and Torques.  You should be able to get 30 pounds at full with the 12 visx and 40 pounds with the 16 visx. From zero to full should be a smooth progression on both.

So the VISX 16 needs help right out the box also ? What about the Mak 16 SEA ?

Cool
I would rather be judged by 12 than carried by 6...

the mak 16 is good.  the cam of the visx 16 needs to be ground down.  also gotta replace the handle grip for the visx16.  it's way too small.
