Re: Coronavirus "Covid-19"

I don' see virus can get over here by mail, otherwise all mail would be restricted, and you can start a biological war yourself, if you can ship stuff like that.
But I see less availability of tackle made in China and even made in Japan, until good economical depression will play own role.

Re: Z man Jack Hammer

They are better than standard Z Man offerings, however most Japanese chatterbaits are in the same league with Evergreen. Only difference, they can't be sold in US, because of the patent issues. https://www.jackall.co.jp/bass/wp-content/uploads/sites/2/2017/06/Bbrade.jpg https://www.daiwa.com/jp/reso...

$695?! You can get Ultima’s in 700sh range, RD’s just a little above it.

For the people that own the 73MH how well with it work for 1/4-3/8oz jigs and T-rigs? I’m looking for a solid all sound rod to fish the bank with and wasn’t sure if the 72H would be overkill
Don’t own any of those, but I would definitely go with 73MH in your case.

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

I own several LE LX rods, however I won't buy any in the future. Pros: One of the best warranty on the market. 15 years as I recall. Good rods for the price, especially, if you have connections to get them with extra discount. ( I would never pay MSRP though) Cons: They had a lot of issues with QC i...

Poison glorious with new handle? are you referring to the poison glorious xc rods or is there another pg with the full monocoque?
I'm referring to couple new models they added last year to standard PG lineup with a solid tip.

166M-S
