Best Line Counters - I Want To Ask Some Information

Recommended Posts

Celena

I bought a couple Okuma Magda Pro 20DX line counters. They have worked great with a couple 7ft ugly sticks for planer board rods, and some 8ft 6in okuma dipsy rods.

I was just wondering when it comes to line counters what do most of you use?

I use primarily daiwa Sealines and upgrade the drag disks to carbon fiber drag disks.

 

I do use Okuma Convector line counters on some of my salmon rods.  The magnas are just too cheaply built to hold up for salmon.  Probably just fine for walleye, pike, etc.

I’ve used trolling combos for the last couple years. But a few weeks ago I finally got the money to buy my own. I went with the okuma classic pro trolling rod and paired with a okuma magda pro 30. It was alright but a few days later I ended up returning the Magda and getting a daiwa acudepth plus 47 LCB.WAY better real! I think In the end I ended up paying like $5 more for the accudepth as it was on sale at the time. I’d by another accudepth in a haeartbeat. Awesome real for the price hands down.

I have a Daiwa SG27-LC that has nearly 20 years on it. Still works perfect and outlasted other reels.

I have 18 Daiwa accudepths and 8 sealines,,,, Swapped out all the drags to carbon fiber and have no reason to upgrade to Shimanos ,,,YET!!!!

 

If I had any magda's they would be used for structure on the bottom of the lake

I have a Jason Mitchel walleye trolling rod and paired it with an Okuma cold water CW-354DLX.  Very slick combo!!  I will be looking for another set up similar to this!!

      that can be nasty with no handle

      I put my lazer bit on my dewalt brushless the other day with a homemade adapter (piece of pipe and a bolt) tryed it out the other day and was amazed, very smooth setup and since I have the max XR kit I have the nice lithium battery’s ( 2 and 4 ah) so I’m set for first ice drilling. Super light setup. Only downside is I don’t have a size handle for the drill so I just have to be mindful and not break my wrist.

      Just checked the ice this afternoon and Shoe has 2.5" of ice and is 100% ice covered with some river current areas.  Summer access is no longer open.    I will be starting to ice fish as soon as I am done deer hunting in front of my house.    I predict a limit of walleyes first night out.     Don

      Saw those at Scheels in St. Cloud this afternoon.  Light!  The sticker shock blew back my hat a little but there’s always at least 1 significant upgrade to the ice fishing arsenal every year.  It’s not my upgrade yet but maybe later.  I was checking for a drill adapter for my new to me 8 inch Nils bit.  I like the 6 so much on the drill but sometimes I want an 8.   Anyone have an extra laying around?!

      Sounds terrific.   Having spent my career in the Tech field I am always cautious as to what startups are claiming.  But more power to them, I hope that they can achieve everything they are aiming for.    15 ms seems really fast.   It will be great if so.      Note, claiming a lot more than can be delivered is not limited to startups.    I have run into it many times inside an established tech power.     Fortunately, we are only like a half mile from the fiber on 24 so our DSL works fine...   Before that we had access.  Before that we had 26k dial up.

      Here you go. Took this on the way out of town today. Hopefully, you can zoom in on it!

      its nice and light.  sold other battery. deal with it. put 5.5 cans of soup in a plastic bag and lift it.  that's the difference

      Not quoted numbers!  Lets see the whole unit with each on a scale pal! 🤨

      15 ms round trip from/return to space is what SpaceX is claiming now. Pretty impressive if it pulls off.   The issue with Hughes is the position of orbit of the satellite. Hughes satellites are in Geo-synchronous orbit with the earth, which means the satellite's orbit moves at the exact same rate as the earth turns. That way the satellite remains at relatively the same spot over the earth. The trouble with geo-sync orbits is that they are a long ways away. 22,500 miles, give or take. That's a long ways for a signal to round-trip. And there's not really a high-demand capacity solution.   The new constellation model of internet satellites uses a bunch, like say 4000, of really small satellites, about the size of a desk. These are in low-earth orbit, only 150 miles from earth by comparison. Capacity is handled by allowing satellites to share data between themselves. So if one satellite is overloaded, it will off-load data throughput to another close-by satellite via peer-to-peer communication. It's a pretty cool engineering model.   As you can probably tell, this is in-line with what I do for a living. But i am pretty hyped about the possibilities for people like us, who will never have optic cable strung to our remote location.
