  1. I am kind of in the same boat. Built a cooler radio and trying to figure out how big of a battery I need. I don't have an extra car or boat battery.
  2. I've owned in Ice 55 since they came out, no problems. A single person's experience is tangetial, I.E not representative to what everybody else is experiencing.

    You mean like this? http://www.nfl.com/videos/nfl-game-highlights/09000d5d81a77070/Controversial-call-on-Megatron-non-TD
  4. I stopped using rod slicks after the tips of 2 Meatsticks broke off in them. Just put them in the case w/out them and have never had a problem since.
  5. Thanks for the info. I'll just skip it then, since I will be disconnecting it from the battery any time I am not running it. In your setup, I definitely think it was smart to wire in the master switch!!
  6. Princeton, looks great!!! One of the nicest I've seen!!! Say I recently picked up what looks to be the same amplifier as you (Kicker). Just had a quick wiring question, since the manual is pretty worthless: There are two positives in the wiring harness "ignition" (red) and "constant" (yellow), did you hook up the both to the battery or just the "constant" (yellow)? Thanks, CJH
  7. Thanks, that's exactly what I am doing, but I was using a Palomar knot. Good to know that the Trilene knots have held up and you haven't had any problems. The ability to change quickly, efficiently, and with however I want to design my snells/leaders is the appeal. Thanks again.
  8. I have the Motorola one and haven't had any problems with it. Don't think it asks for many permissions either.
  9. I would think any 18v hammer style drill would work. Obviously more voltage, more power, but for a 6in auger you get to a point where its overkill.
  10. + Digital Depth + More Power (Watts) I've had an Ice 55 since the first year they came out and its been a great unit for me. I like the display better than than the Vex/Marcum alternatives - its just easier to read for my eyes. The only thing I didn't like was the battery charger (which were a little flukey with the first year batch), so I just picked up an Interstate brand one and haven't had any problems.
  11. Don't want to hijack the thread, but are the reviews on the Clam Conversion kit generally positive? It sounds like it works with most hand drills, but not the gas equivalent. I have a 8in Lazer Mag that has been nothing but a pain in the arse since I got it and this would seem like a lot less of a hassle.
  12. So toying with the idea of making my own Flouro leaders. I have read about people using super glue on the knots in order to keep them tight. Has anybody done this and/or noticed any detriment/problems? Any difference in catch rate, vs non glue? Thanks for any info, just kind of floating the idea around in my head.
