Re: 2020 Combos

No, flukes and senkos are the lightest stuff I throw and the Diablo or kistler are my choice for that. I have spinnning gear but mostly use for walleye or friends that can't sling a baitcaster.

This is what my 2020 Line up is going to look like, feel free to post yours too! I started out looking for an ideal bottom contact rod and now I'd say my whole line up is pretty legit. https://i.imgur.com/m3pcorC.jpg Top to bottom: 1.

Re: 12# sniper?

I had a few mysterious breakoffs with Assassin last year (reviews say it has bad abrasion resistance) so I'm all in on Sniper now. Never had an issue with it and I fish it in 6 (leader line for spinning rod) 10 (jerkbaits), 12 (cranks and some light bottom contact) and 16lb (jigs and heavier texas ...

Re: 12# sniper?

Sniper works for me. Oddly enough, I prefer skipping with FC vs braid. Idk what it is but, I feel there are less problems. An issue is, when there is a problem outside of a small amount of loose line, it is major and usually cannot be undone. Ight, so spending double on tatsu probably won't save th...

12# sniper?

I haven't found a great 12# flourocarbon line for skipping weightless plastics. Berkeley vanish, Berkley 100%, invisx, and sunline assassin are what I have tried so far. I get the occasional overrun, it creates a weak spot and the line snaps very easy. Funny thing is I don't have this problem with 1...

Re: G. Loomis rods

It seems like all rod companies have QC issues. I have a NRX, glx, a handful of st.croix rods, and a kistler. No problems so far with any of my USA gear, but I've seen plenty of posts where someone has had multiple problems with each of those rod makers. I had 2 MB destroyers snap, 2 with epoxy free...

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

I'm going to pick up a LE 7MF spinning rod before spring because of their focus on build quality and durability. My friends&family have st.croix rods over 20yrs old. I have lighter more sensitive rods but never had a st.croix break in a normal fishing situation. I think a lot of the rod industry is ...

Re: What are you Skipping with?

SV reels are the ticket for skipping. I do jigs and weighted plastics on my glx854c/sv103. weightless on my Diablo 68xti/sv105p.

Re: **Daiwa BLX & Megabass FMJ

I’m one of the unlucky ones that has to order rods to get my hands on them and if it’s not the feel I’m looking for I have to send them back and try again. Same old song I know but it can be exhausting lol Daiwa dropped that BLX in which the few reviews I can find on them say the rods in general ar...

Re: NRX 854c vs Megabass FMJ

I own a NRX 894, GLX 854 and owned an FMJ. I can't make a direct comparison between FMJ and NRX 854 but I think I can help ya out. I can say that the FMJ has a 1/2 click more power than both the nrx894 and glx854 which have similar power. It's seems to be a common opinion that the NRX 854 is a half ...
