Re: Lost fish therapy

God, I lost a nice one today. I was using a light power rod and an Alphas Air with 8# braid to a 6# fluoro leader to a light wire owner cover shot hook and roboworm Texas rigged with a mojo sinker.

Re: Pics of most balanced high end rod please

And a few others: Those pics say a lot about those major craft rods. Light weight pretty well balanced and underrated. Nice stuff. That's what got me hooked on them. They're very well designed and constructed. The only one that's really tip heavy at all is the frog rod, but it's still pretty balanc...

Re: Fastest Round Reel?

Yeah, it is. All that gold needs some contrast. I wish I could've gotten a purple spool, but that red one was too good of a deal from another member in the classifieds.

I've been intending to get some clear cork or sawdust knobs for mine. They really look great. I may get some metallic pink or green ones for my Alphas ASC and put the ...
