Re: Conquest Price

Will this price increase fix the bad thread work, epoxy and crap build quality?

Re: Conquest 905C balance

I don't think you are going to find a reel that will balance that rod out nicely. The main reason is that the reel sits more than 12" up from the butt end of the rod and creates a fulcrum point in the balance. Adding more weight at that fulcrum point will slightly improve balance but with diminishin...

Re: Steez SV TW frame swap

the frame on my steez A is aluminum and heavy AF. Really?? Wow. I certainly wouldn’t call the Steez A heavy by comparison to other reels. You might save 1 - 1.2oz going to the Steez SV TW but IMO will be hardly noticeable in your hand. What rod are you putting it on? Often times a tip heavy rod wil...

Re: We really not gonna talk about the new 2020 Ultima 172H “full carbon triangle grip”?

I have a few Ultima rods, one of them being the 172H and they are incredible. That new grip and blank on the 172H has me thinking about getting another. :mrgreen:

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

I’m really tempted to pull the trigger on the new RD hustler solid tip. I’m debating between the solid tip model and the regular hustler technical tune. I have a poison Ultima 172H that I feel fishes more like a MH. I’m wondering if the regular hustler technical tune would have similar power and tap...

Re: Evergreen Rapid Gunner RSR

Nice taper! As the load increases, does the blank progressively bend toward the butt section or does it shut off at a certain point?

Re: Evergreen Rapid Gunner RSR

Can't wait to hear more about this rod. One thing I'm wondering before I make the plunge is the differences in the guide size between the RSR model and the HD? I also assume the blanks are the exact same between RSR and HD?

Re: MB Destroyer Javelin vs Poison Adrena MH

The Javelin is my favourite in the casting lineup for the destroyers. It certainly is very versatile and good at almost everything in its weight range. Also, I find it has great sensitivity too.

Re: NXR 873 vs 893

893C would be perfect for this. The 893C is also the sensitivity king IMO.

Re: Medium Heavy Spinning Rods

Take a look at the Megabass destroyer brigand F4-74XS Excellent rod and lots of power. It’s slightly faster in action to the XX enforcer. I ended up selling the enforcer as I realize I hate the feel of a spinning rod with a front locking nut.

I'm going to go 74 AGS it will pull double duty as a deep jig rod. If I get any other rod I'll just end up wanting that one. Thanks for all the great info as always TT!
You’re gonna love that rod. It’s among my top favorites for heavy cover.

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

Since you asked about the 71H Steez AGS, it is another excellent jig rod that I like for close quarters pitching primarily. This one is of course light, well balanced, very sensitive, and loads up nicely for pitching. I've sold a few other similar rods I've had after fishing this one quite a bit. H...

Re: Glx 893c vs. Nrx 893c

I have had the NRX 893C for 5 years and is my favorite from that lineup. I'm not crazy about the NRX real seat as I find it somewhat uncomfortable. However I am more than willing to deal with that as the 893C has amazing sensitivity and I like the action for my intended purposes. I bought the GLX a ...

Re: Heavy cover frogging and flipping - DX746C or Expride 73XH?

That Dobyns cant hold a candle to the Expride in terms of sensitivity. That's why he was using it as a frog rod. :lol: I've read that the Champion Extreme line is pretty sensitive though. I had an Expride, 6'8MXF spinning and it was very sensitive as far as I remember, but I feel like Dobyns should...
