dippin' my toes in the BFS world

Finally got a reel to match up with my bfs rod and looking for all around recommendations from line, lures, and techniques. The setup is an Alphas Air with a Major Craft Go Emotion GEC-69M/BF 6'9” 1 3/16-1/2 6-16 Regular Fast. Thank you!

Hedgehog & Megabass purple

Thinking about picking up one of the 4 piece Levante rods and was curious as to how the purple highlights match up with Hedgehog Studios components. Is it closer to their royal or deep purple parts?

Re: JDM Levante

I didn’t see your thread earlier. If you read my above post you will know the rod doesn’t fit my grip. Other than that it goes together very nicely. Has small white alignment dots to help line it up. It’s put together very well and is a great option for putting under your seat in the car. Wacky Senk...

Re: JDM Levante

Interested to hear about the shortcomings as well. Especially since I mentioned this exact model in a previous post.

There’s also this entire series of travel rods coming from MB fairly soon. Little more expensive than levante; but not outrageous: https://jp.megabassstore.jp/fs/megabass/c/rod-triza-all
Thanks for the heads up! That 66 model is perfect for what I have in mind.

Levante Multi Piece rods

Does anybody have any info or possibly hands on experience with any of the new multi piece rods from the Levante series? Have my eye on the F3-67LV. Thinking about a travel rod to keep in the car so I can make a few casts on my lunch break.

Stand up guy as usual. Great communication during the transaction and fast shipping. Just ordered two PopX's from him and the packaging was better than what you'd get from some retailers.

Re: Attn: Megabass Lure Guys

The Hookup is pretty legit. They have their own Megabass shop within the store. Mikesrx is also a good choice, somewhat hit or miss on inventory, but tends to have some of the JP offerings that most others don't have. Both have prompt shipping.

Re: Gan Craft Jointed Claw - is it worth it / colors

Gotta agree with Cal. I’m not swimbait enthusiast by any means, but both are entirely different. Splurge a little bit and go with Gan Craft. The attention to detail is top notch as is expected with most JDM lures. Also, it looks as though they will be releasing a smaller mode soon. The 128 if I’m no...

Is it weighted near the line tie to allow the defensive posture in the water?

Re: Lake Powell FLORIDA

Thanks for the all the info! I was a little on the fence about using my Alphas SV because from what I understand there is some saltwater in the lake and didn't want to risk ruining the reel. Looks I need to grab a few green Xraps and give it a shot. I think I'll have the chance to fish from a kayak ...

Lake Powell FLORIDA

Looks like I'm heading to Rosemary Beach, FL in July and was wondering if anybody had any tips on Lake Powell. I'm not familiar with dune lakes and see that it has a mixture of fresh and saltwater fish. What techniques, lure types do you recommend and how about rod/ reel? Would an Alphas SV be okay ...

Re: My new favorite jdm YouTube channel

Pretty cool videos! Great to see the lures action in an up close and clear picture for once. It would be pretty cool if he could add a pump to create a current in the tank in order to see how lures such as the Easy Shaker would react.
