Re: New Poison Adrena

The 611M+ is a lot of fun with a D-Shad. The tip is too stiff for a Zoom Super but the heavier D-Shad casts very well and the rod works it well. It's longer then I want for tip-down work from the bank but from a raised position it's really nice. I am really really impressed with how the rod fishes, ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Have you used the expride version? No, I was looking at it hard but the PA was too interesting looking to pass up. I wish the 611M+ had a bit of a softer tip, but other then that I am really really loving it the more that I fish it. I changed over to 14lb Sniper from 12lb and think it's a better fit.

Re: Turn down for what!?

Imho the Zillion 1016sv and the RCS 1012sv are universally the “best” 34mm spools in they they both have worked well in every reel I have tried them in. The 1012sv is a bit more free and is my preferred for thiner lines or pitching. The Zillion SV spool is a great GP spool but they seem to sell out ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

I would love like a 72ML+ with the same taper as the M+ but with a sweet spot between 1/4-3/8.

Re: Turn down for what!?

That’s awesome, I wish I had been less of a turd when I was a kid and learned more machining from my granddad. I have played with a PG spool in a sv103 but only for a bit of yard casting. I don’t have a strong opinion of it, it didn’t feel different enough from the RCS 1012sv or Zillion SV spools to...

Re: TD-Z Owners Guild

https://i.imgur.com/nAXdgggh.jpg My baby is home at last. Carbon drag, ZPI PG spool, and fresh glue on the magnets. It cast so so well and I think the TD-Z is maybe the most comfortable non-finesse reel I have tried on the glx seats. I am thinking about getting a beater TD-Ito for my 783c, have it ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

The 611M+ continues to impress. I threw a 1oz glidebait on to see how the rod handed it and unbelievably it did pretty well! It didn’t feel overloaded at all, but to be fair I didn’t push it with hard casts. Got a little bass in the process as well. https://www.dropbox.com/s/zis7gblpmvb5sly/2019-10-...

I have the entire casting lineup and I love them... all my destroyers are slowly leaving my arsenal.
Do you have the 67L BFS? I am really interested but want to know what kind of XF it is.

Re: New Poison Adrena

Got out with the 611M+ a bit after work today. Whomever said it was a 2.5 Loomis was right on, it's got a bit stiffer of a tip and a bit less backbone then my 783c. It casts a 1/4oz swimjig w/ 3.75" Kietech trailer (~.66oz) amazingly well but doesn't do super well with a weightless Trickworm (~.25oz...

Re: New Poison Adrena

https://i.imgur.com/sp82rDoh.jpg It has arrived. Thoughts after like 45min of yard-fishing: -It feels crazy light. -The seat fits the steez wonderfully. -The power/taper reminds me a lot of my 783c. -The handle is very very weird feeling, not in a bad way but super weird. I can't get out with it un...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Welp, I ordered a 611M+ last night. I think it's going to be heavier then I want but the 67L-BFS seemed like it would be too light and I am leery of buying any XF rod without a lot of info about it. https://i.imgur.com/YdC5IUm.jpg The suggested uses are wacky as hell, I am really looking forward to ...

Re: Fishing in Washington DC

Thank you for the info/link - I will be sure to check out his videos. Unfortunately, I am “only” in the US from Oct 1st to 6th. On a side note, are all Walmarts created equally? I was wondering if I can find cheap Rooster Tail spinners at the Walmart on H Street. I would be surprised if the H Stree...

Does anyone have the 167L BFS? I think I am sold on getting one of these rods but maybe want to go lighter then the 611 M+.

Re: Alphas sv105

I have a pair of sv105’s and they are the wildest SV reels I have tried. I still like them a lot, but they definitely require more thumb if you really want distance. My bro swapped inductors between his sv105 and sv103 spools and said that it dramatically increased the performance of both. I have ye...
