Got my new Core 50! Reviews?

8 posts in this topic

Man o man.. is this reel small. Big difference from the original core. It's even slightly smaller then the steez. The handle is a bit smaller too, compared to the older 85mm core. Palms a lot better then the old core. Can't wait to get her out on the water! Matched her up on my Cumara 6'9 Med/Hvy fast rod! Boy is it lighter then the regular core. Throws the balance point off a bit.

Deitz.. have you fished the reel yet? What are your thoughts? What color brakes are more aggresive? I'm ordering some ceramic bearings for it tomorrow!

they made a difference in my daiwa and other core. I wouldn't doubt it. I'll report back tonight. Maybe I'll hookup to a monster!

ergo and shape. Skimmed off about .5 ounce or so. Much more over the flipping version. I'm not sure if the gear is still brass or not though. Added 3 more bearings.. I take it, it was to the worm gear and knobs. Much more palmable then my other core.

grin Ease of pitching and casting distance. The ceramic bearings are lighter and are smoother but are a tad bit louder. If you haven't tried them before.. give them a go. They're about 15-20 bucks and very easy to replace on reels. Shimano are super easy. Daiwa has it on the spool so it's just a bit more work. Made improvements on my daiwas so I tried them on my core. They were just a little louder then the normal bearings but boy did they make a difference. I have them in all my baitcasters! I can give you the info to the reel guru on tackle tour forums. He's an awesome guy and will tell you what's best. He'll even tell me where I can find the bearings cheaper then what he sells it for.

    • Hey everybody. An FYI. There is something new coming. Should be out around October, 2017 and available for on-line purchase.   If you google : ICE WELL Live Well ICAST 2017 The video of the product roll-out at ICAST 2017 in July, 2017 will pop up.   Also you can go to the product page. See : ICEWELLLiveWell.com. The page has a separate video to view also.                        The product is being manufactured from a custom blend non-buoyant polypropylene with impact modifiers to withstand extreme cold without cracking. The product will sit within 99% of all manufactured 5-gallon buckets for transport to and from the fishing spot. It is designed to fit within a drilled 8 or 10 inch ice hole. When in the drilled hole it will fill allowing you to throw your catch in the ICE WELL Live Well. No more throwing them on the ice or in the bucket to die, freeze or turn to slime. At the end of the day, pull it, place back in the bucket for transport home. No more frozen fish and easy handling. It's going to sell for around $19.99 plus shipping. The listed page will undergo changes before roll out that will allow purchase direct on-line. This is a creation by a Nebraska ice fisherman for ice fishermen. Made in the USA. Made with recycled materials. "Respect the Resource".
