Re: Kistler Helium3 vs Megabass Orochi vs St Croix LTB

I would go Megabass, then Kistler, then St. Croix. Since versatility is key for you, I would probably go with the Helium 3. You can do a lot with that rod taper, and it is a nice stick.

Rod Shipping

I have been shipping rods across the United States for the last 10 years, and have never paid more than about $40 to ship a rod. I went to my local UPS today, which I have probably shipped 15-20 rods from, and usually pay about 30-40$. They told me it would cost $251 to UPS ground ship a rod, cheap ...

Re: Reel Seat Question

Yeah it sounds like we really do. This is the exact reply I was looking for. Was there something performance related about the rod that you didnt like, that caused you to sell it? No, not at all. It was a very nice rod. I bought the rod to be paired with a Curado DC and I sold the reel, so I the ro...

Re: MB Orochi xx EMTF for jigs & t-rigs

To me it seems like the Gen1 EMTF is more comparable to the Gen2 Braillist than it is to the Gen2 EMTF

Re: Reel Seat Question

I'm looking at picking up an Expride sometime soon, and had a question about the reel seat. Is it comfortable? How does it compare to an ECS seat, and how does it compare to the new Megabass seat that you are seeing on a lot of their rods like the Orochi XX gen 2? It looks pretty similar to the Meg...

Re: Megabass levante

Will Megabass ever go back to the ECS style seats :crying: :crying: Those are old news to MB, and it’s doubtful they will go back to them. I prefer the ecs seat and the switch has made it so I’m no longer interested in any of the new MB rod offerings. Im in the same boat unfortunately. A shame too,...

Re: What’s your 2019 Rod to have?

I think I will finally try an Expride. The one year warranty has scared me in the past, but the reviews are too good to pass up
