Kvd reels question

Recommended Posts

No. He mentions in Bass Pro's Series DVD (in season 1 or 2??) that he uses 5.4:1 gear ratio crankin' because he tends to want to fish fast and the reel makes him slow down.

Met him at bps grand opening inrossford ohio 2 yrs ago 8-) got there early to shop,walking around with basket ,noticed him walking around with same basket. I ran out to car, got my bass mag i brought for him to autograph, grabbed a couple hats and t shirts from store. I am almost 50 hope i grow up some day ::D and walked up behind him asked what he could be needing to buy? He laughed walked around the store with me showing me baits , answering my questions ,wife taking pictures. That was 1 of my questions, he uses 5:4 or 5:1. for cranking. He was a very nice guy and genuine. He kept walking with me as i shopped.I guess was star struck, I asked him a few times if i was keeping him from something important? he said no just hung around, no 1 in my book!

i just finnished both of his books, and in them he says that he used 6.3:1 for most application and some of crankbait applications.

haha beav your statement is probable more accurate for what he used today, those books are from i believe 2001 or 2002 so they are a little older.
