Given he amount of holes I can drill this might be important sometime soon grin.gif Think some other people might want the answer too.

I'm not sure. I should be pretty simple to touch them up as you sharpen the back side and not the angled edge. I do know that Nils has an exchange program with a 5-7 day turn around. I believe the cost is about $12.

I picked up an additional cutting head so I wouldn't loose any time in case I hit something or had to send mine in for sharpening.

Who do you contact regarding the exchange program? Nils Master USA?

Mark,

Contact J.P. at Nilsmaster USA. I do the same thing that Borch does. I have an extra head and when I need one sharpened I put the new one on and send in the old one. One week turnaround smile.gif and as mentioned it's around $12.00

Did and sadly JP said the grinder is kaput and he won't be able to do the exchange until he gets a new one. He gave me all the info I need to touch the blades up and then talked me into a new centerpoint head. I like the idea of having a spare around just in case so it's all good.

      I agree with AlwaysFishing--you can come down in line weight for braid if you're just straight up bass fishing. I personally like 30lb if there are a lot of toothy critters around. I use 50-60lb when going after pike and muskie. Have you ever tried fireline for your spinning rod? When jigging, wacky worming, etc., I use 8-12lb fireline exclusively--you can feel EVERYTHING and no stretch is an added bonus.

      Very high expectations. Especially that splake...36 inches would be 2.5 inches longer than what the state record is.

        Good for him holding that big pig.

      Going to hit it tomorrow. Haven't decided where we will but in at the junction or head towards birchdale. Have heard varying fishing reports. Any info is appreciated! Tight lines everyone!

      I was up for my first trip to RR on Wednesday and Thursday. Launched at Birchdale Wednesday morning because it was the only one open. Launched at Vidas on Thursday.  Fished the ice edge as it pushed westward for some of both days with minimal success. Caught a 28.5" and 26.5" on consecutive casts on Wednesday but not much other action at ice edge.  We had our most success at the connection of the Rapid River (just west of Vidas Landing). Caught about 45 walleyes total with a 28" and 26" being the biggest from that spot.  We also hooked up with 15 sturgeon, landing 4 of them. A 66", 60" and finished the trip landing two sturgeon in the same net (a 42" and 32", or so).  It was an amazing experience and I will be back again in the upcoming years!
