Megabass Valdivia or Wild Bunch?

Hey TT, I need a versatile heavy powered rod and was considering between the Megabass Wild Bunch and the Valdivia. Looking to do a little bit of everything with the rod from frogging, pitch/flip, light arig/swimbait and jigs. Not looking to excel at a particular technique, just well rounded enough t...

Re: Antares A Casting Reel

Just picked up one after reading through the posts. Incredible reel to say the least. Currently running 2 brakes with braid. Effortless casting.

Re: MB Destroyer Javelin vs Poison Adrena MH

I think you'll be very happy with the Javelin. I've thrown med/deep cranks, spinnerbaits, big topwaters, bottom contact, and 168 Swavers without issue. Definitely my most versatile rod.

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

From experience, I think you'll be ok with a 4 or 5 power. If you're running braid to leader like me, the 4 power works fine. If fishing straight fluro or mono, the 5 power would be better. Personally I use the Champ Extreme 784, but any of the 7'3 -7'5 models are good to go.

Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

Thanks, that's what I was leaning towards. Care to give your opinion on the 753 in terms of performance?

Performance was great. Threw a bunch of stuff on it from topwater to bottom cotact to 3/8 ounce. Very crisp and light feeling in hand.

Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

I've fished a buddy's 753c and I think you'll want at least a 4 power if you're going to fish 1/2 ounce in deep water.

Re: Expride 7' light spinning

I've been fishing this rod for the past season and it's been great. Very light and sensitive. Great for 1/4 and under for my tastes and shines with 1/8 - 3/16 ounce weights.
