Re: New Curado 70 mgl K

I will be pairing this new XG 70 with a GLX 842 for an all-around medium rod. Should be a blast for weightless senkos.

Personally I am not a fan of the color scheme. It is not going to match most rods very well. The older 70 would look good on a much wider variety of rods.

Anyone know a price? If it is still 199 that is a steal

Re: Stradic CI4+ on clearnce...new model coming?

Yea looks like a retro ci4 to me. Certainly intriguing but for the price I might rather get a twinpower for 70 more

New Met DC

Do you think they will drop a new met DC with the coresolid body, or is the DC unit too large to fit in a compact frame? The reel is definitely due for an update.

Idk but I am curious about a zillion 10. Not really a tatula baitcaster fan myself.

Re: Shimano Stradic FL (Smootheness)?

I've never had a decent spinning reel before, and thus far I love my stradic FL.

Re: A longer MH rod

I am pretty intrigued by the XX EMTF even though I know it is a bit tip heavy from the TT review. They said it was a great paddletail rod which would be the primary use.

The 78M1 is also pretty intriguing.

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

I can't deal with the weird space egg shape of the Steez CT. It's like that one weird Civic the Europeans got. Good for the wallet I guess. And here I was planning on getting a 19 Morethan PE and one of the gold 17 Destroyers. What are the chances of the 17 models going on clearance anytime soon? T...

A longer MH rod

I'm looking to pick up a MH in the 76 range for paddletails, maybe some texas rigs and jigs. Ideally I want to avoid tip heaviness but that may not be possible. Thinking about: -Destroyer Javelin -XX EMTF -75MH Zodias or 76MH Expride Any other suggestions? I want the rod to be versitile enough for a...

Re: Confirmed new Nrx coming out !!

I was just thinking about switching rods to all JDM too lol. I really enjoy the conquest and NRX lineups but those recoil guides were absolutely terrible. Great sensitivity with mono or fluoro but the worst for dishing braid. I don’t want my high end rod sounding like I’m sawing through the guides....
