Re: Sensitive jig rod

US market - Grab a new Z Bone or K2. The umbx is no slouch either, and the new models should be out soon. JDM - Something from the folks at Evergreen, or perhaps an Ultima or Glorious, depending on what you can find in your price range. These would be my suggestions. Let us know what you end up gra...

I did not find it overbraked/restricted, but as mentioned only used the combination briefly. I will have to try it again.
If you do, please let me know :big grin:

Re: Alphas air stream custom

It may be of interest to some: The Pixy Ize spool fits my Alphas Air Stream Custom, but the DIY spool did not. Have you used the Pixy i'ze spool in the air stream custom? If so did it perform the same as in a Pixy? Thanks Only briefly and it performed nicely as in my PX68: good control overall and ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Anyone own an old model Adrena and a new model Adrena in similar powers/actions and can give some idea of the differences between old and new? Own several of the old models, and don’t feel that they were anywhere close to other top end rods from other brands. Not saying they had no feel, but very t...

I have the 6’11 my spinning . It can go lower than a 1/4, ive been fishing shakey 1/8 oz heads and some neko in 1/16 as well. It has a solid backbone.
Sweet, I appreciate it. Where does it top out, 5/8 oz? Sounds like it fishes a little lighter than the 6'10 medium casting.

Re: New Poison Adrena

Anyone have the 6'11 MH spinning rod yet? Can anyone compare it to the 6'10 medium casting rod? I'm hoping the spinning stick can go a little lower than a quarter ounce.

Re: Alphas Airstream Custom or Steez CT for BFS

The ACS is going to be more of a one trick pony, compared to the Steez CT. I don't own one yet, but I've read it can handle those weights with the right rod.

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

I wish Daiwa would realize that there are other colors in the rainbow than red. A great spool doesn't become better because it's red. Just keep the spools black, and let us do our thing.

On the website, there is a spot where it said this weights 2 oz. Can that be right?
Evidently not

Re: What rod handle material do you prefer?

There’s a special way they cure their grips they have yet to divulge to me. Been trying! If I can readily cure them so they have all the same properties and durability, I’ll dive in head first. Are you curing yours in any special way? That’s a pretty technical grip. Cool stuff. 😎 I put epoxy throug...

Re: New Saint overpriced or not?

St Croix blanks have always been over priced imo. I can't speak on this one though. I believe there are less expensive blanks on the market, that offer better performance. Personally, I wouldn't dish out that kind of coin for a Croix. Ymmv

Re: Newbie question (sorry in advance)

My opinion is no. I'd definitely recommend running the same bearings on both sides of the spool. I've found bearing upgrades are good for casting lighter baits. They can also casting easier, as in achieving the same results, with less input from the angler. Both Shimano and Daiwa utilize good bearin...
