Got my new Core 50! Reviews?

Recommended Posts

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.

    • I should’ve looked closer - I have an eyes open pic too. 😌  Tough to tell sometimes on my phone screen.  
    • Among other wilds that have moved into our urban areas, we can now add loons.  There is a breeding pair on the lake formerly known as Calhoun, mostly staying on the west and northwest sides.  But there is also a bunch of yearlings fishing the east side, numbering maybe six or seven and so unafraid that they come right up to the 36th Street dock and try to steal suckers being used for musky bait.  Maybe the call of the wild is not really so alien to the South side of Minneapolis, but it looks like the loons have moved in and can be heard calling from time to time. 
    • Sounds like you guys gave her heck up there to find them. I'd be praying thanks, too if I got that one on! ☺️
    • Quick recap:   Weather was too darn “nice”!  Upper 80’s - 90’s; no wind to speak of; mostly sunny. Water temps were anywhere from 64 - 71 depending on location and day.   We looked the lake over from end to end, marking up our map and returning to some places where we saw fish either later the same day or a couple days later.  We could literally see the transition from spawn to post spawn happening during our stay.  Being new to both muskie fishing and that lake, we spent time in dead water as much as good water but feel like we got a pretty good handle on how to go about setting up a more efficient return visit.  It was a lot work and long hours but I’d go back this weekend if I could so I must’ve enjoyed it.   A few pics as hoped for:
    • big dave 2 and leech, darn good lookin meals!!!!  Dave have a good weekend!!!!
    • Ok Dave have a good weekend. Hope you get over the whole butt hurt Leech deal! Not sure where you got that I don't like folks smoking or grilling things?  I know I do enough. Have fun! 🙂  
    • Heavy rains across northwestern Wisconsin last weekend and early this week have flooded some roads and caused washouts on some highways, roads, state parks, forests and trails. According to the National Weather Service the area has received 7 to 12 inches of rain from Friday through Monday.Several park system property or portions of properties are closed due flooding. Amnicon Falls State Park, closed temporarily but has reopened, though some roads, trails and observation areas remain closed. Pattison State Park is open for camping only; all trails, observation areas, picnic and day-use areas are closed. There are washouts on the dam that forms Interfalls Lake and Highway 35 over the dam is closed. A campground and horse trail are closed at Governor Knowles State Forest and the day use areas along the river at Interstate Park are underwater.Water was roaring over Little Manitou Falls at Pattison State Park.Photo credit: Gervase ThompsonAll rivers in the region are running extremely high. The falls at both Amnicon and Pattison are roaring, but road closures mean observing the falls now is challenging. The Bois Brule and Flambeau rivers are high enough that some canoe launches and campsites are underwater. The water is making its way downstream and the Lower Wisconsin River is running very high with all sandbars submerged and canoeing and kayaking not recommended. The river is expected to crest Muscoda this weekend at 40,000 cubic feet per second. .
    • I'm still going to smoke this fatty while camping this weekend whether Leech likes it or not.....😋       See you fellers on Monday........
