Re: St Croix LE for dropshot

I own the LE 7' ML from back when the blanks were brown and had the frosted reel seats. It is a great DS rod, the upper 20% of the upper rod is very lively, then shuts down quickly. Don't know if the same action is found in the current ML blanks. But having read the archives there was a very positiv...

Bought 2 reels from Mark locally. He was prompt meeting with me, and everything went super smooth, same as in previous transactions.
Excellent seller.

Re: What Frog Rod Do You Use?

Also got me a Daiwa Steez XBD this spring so looking forward to using it for frogs and even pitching 1/2oz and heavier jigs. I used to use a first generation Legend Tournament 7'6" MHM for hollow body frogs and it did a good job.

Is that a Phase3 Nautilus? Itching more and more to get me one. Sweet setup. Plan on throwing jigs on it?

Wicked! I like how the red on the handle sideplate ties in with the reel seat and the fore nut winding check. Fabulous looking setup.

Re: Time for some pre Christmas tackle porn

Wish Abu would've kept those MG framed Morrums. Still waiting to track down an Ultra Mag, or UM S2.
Morrums and Conquests hold a special place in my heart
