New !3 Fishing Products
« on: November 04, 2013, 08:03:25 PM »
Anyone been looking at these products?  Last year they came out with the BlackBetty 6061 straight-line reel and this year the new Teardrop reel?  And a couple of new Wicked rods?
I ordered two the teardrop reels and two 28.5" medium wicked rods, to use for walleye fishing/jigging.  They are pretty slick feeling/operating, for ice rigs.  Tested them out over the side of my boat  :)

I got a teardrop reel and have mixed feelings about it.  I like the concept, just don't think they have perfected it yet.  It would take a 1/2 oz weight to free spool on its own.  Also the drag was F'ed up but I took it apart and fixed it. 

I got a tickle stick also, unfortunately our ice is gone and it will have to wait for next year.  It is the most sensitive of all my rods with a QT.  NO Need for a spring bobber here.

I know the original posted back in 2013, seeing someone else brought it forward, I'll chime in.....6061 reels are great reels and have no complaints. ....

I've got the Tear Drop and the older version of the Black Betty 6061. Got to admit I really like them both. I use mine mostly on my Jaw Jackers.

I use my 6061s for perch , walleyes , and lake trout in all applications they work great ,matched with 28" med and 31" MH  , but I do own the plain black Betty 1:1 retrieve , IMO I think it's not worth the cash , it now sits in my cabinet
