Solid spinning baitfeeder
on June 20, 2009
I've been fishing beyond the breakers on a kayak for a couple of years now. Last year, I picked up an epixor eb-30, in addition to my conventionals.
-easy to cast(i can't cast a conventional w/ a 3 ft leader if i tried.)
-bait runner works great, used on smacks, ling, bull reds, sharks, kings.
-EB-30 holds ~200+yds of 30lb of braid, which is more than enough via kayak.
-drag is nice and smooth, just as good as a normal epixor ef-30
-has a standard rear drag when in baitrunner mode, helps when trolling for kings if your ribbon fish is causing too much drag
-slightly bigger than the ef-30
-the clicker is not loud enough!!!!
-the paint on the exterior chips too easy, typical okuma quality. Okuma products tend to work just fine, but they look beat up with only 1+ yrs of moderate fishing.
I recently bought a 2nd epixor eb30 and no longer bring out my conventionals for nearshore fishing.
