Re: Z bone frog rod

I use the 7-6 Hvy H3 for frogs. The Z-Bones will frog but I like them for bottom contact. The 7-6 mh Z-bone is kinda underpowered for frogs. If you're going to frog in the morning and worm later, and want 1 rod, then for sure the 7-3 hvy Z-Bone will fill the bill.

Re: Top Water rod for 1ozers

I've been throwing the I-Jack on the new Megabass Destroyer Wild Bunch Carbon Head, among other things. It handles 1 oz range top water baits very nicely. That Valkyrie 71H is an interesting option too... I know how much I enjoy the 71MH version in general. Off topic, are all the MB Valkyrie rods s...

Re: Need help locating Zillion TWS bumper

I have the old model Zillion TWS The part # for the 100XXS is 6J044505 it's key #63 plate
The part # for the 100HS and 100P are different, so that may be the color.

Is that sideplate aluminum?
Robust super metal housing
Handle side plate, mainframe, brake side set plate metallified, like a round bait.

Re: —Daiwa Catalina TW—

I have one on the way, in 7.3 gear. I have the new model Zillion HD and the new JDM Zillion HLC. Both are really good performers. Don't really need an SV spool for the heavier baits. If the Catalina is as good as these I will be happy. Will post up a pic when it comes in. The price was rite, didn't ...

The 1516 HLC would be a good option, holds a bunch of 50lb. braid and will sling a bigger bait a good way.

Are you sure there aren't any thin shims on the knobs, handle posts or bearings? They can be hard to see sometimes.
X2, would check for shims.

I also prefer the full grip, but they are getting few and far between. Hope they do come back around.

Re: 2019 Z Bone vs. Conquest

I have the 7-6 LE-5 Z-Bone and the CNQ 904. Both are great rods. They are neck and neck as far as sensitivity. With the Z-Bone being on sale, you can't go wrong.

Looks to be cheaper if you build it yourself, buy reel from digitaka and parts from ktf and you will be ahead even before reselling original parts.
Yea, but then you wouldn't have the cool KTF sticker...LOL :lol:
