Re: Would you Tap that ito ?

It turned out great, zero handle play and looks good also! Thanks mountainman83! For anyone interested, I used the m4 tap with .7 threads To fit the steez handle lock bolt. https://photos.app.goo.gl/Yks5ssoV4Smq3gLfA https://photos.app.goo.gl/dvXmfWwg7nZFqzgA7 https://photos.app.goo.gl/rftBm1AHqj2z7...

Would you Tap that ito ?

Hello, I have a TD Ito that I converted to a swept handle, but the lock but has become lose. It fell off last time I set the hook with it and the handle fell in the lake!

Oh yeah! You got me there, those Steez RD rods are killer! Thanks Bronzefly! I will be getting the x bite and probably the dark sleeper =D> Just curious, what did you replace the P3 bearing down with for short pitching? You're welcome! Those are both excellent choices. I cycle through a lot of tackl...

I was a fan of the P3 BD myself and fished it for a few years before it found a new home. It was certainly a fine close quarters pitching r...

Re: The Megabass P3 Bearing Down f5-611x is the best

It is kind of a love hate rod. I loved how it was so light, balanced, sensitive, and great for hooksets. But absolutely hated it for casting. With my worm / jig rods I do a mix of pitching and accurate soft roll casts. And the stiffer tip was awful for roll casting and if I am pitching I prefer som...

“According to Megabass Japan website the new 5-D X-Bites rod is based off of the bearing down.”


Interesting! I was looking at that rod, I really like 7’2” jig ods

The Megabass P3 Bearing Down f5-611x is the best

The Megabass P3 Bearing Down is the best small jig (3/8oz) pitching rod ever made, prove me wrong! This rod is extremely light, beautiful and has a very unique and comfortable exposed blank grip. It is not a deep water rod, it’s only 6’11, it’s a grass or dock short range scalpel. There is not much ...

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

Anyone care to try and compare how these will stack up to the conquest? I have a couple poison glorious rods mighty stroke and Biwako, and my conquest 843 blank seems similar, maybe a little softer. I don’t have any ultimas, but I hear they are crisper than the glorious. So..take it for what it worth

Re: Tackle Loss Support Group

Rested a mint condition megabass p3 bearing down against a wall after taking the reel off for a cleaning, the rod fell over sideways and slapped the wood floor and the tip cracked off. I had to just go lay down. I swore off megabass rods after that...but I ended up buying another bearing down about ...
