Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

I don't want no stinkin finesse CT frame for my Zillion. [-( I'll take a brass geared Steez A as a Zillion though. Just axe the Steez A and throw a brass main gear in it for $300 as a Zillion with better knobs already. I love Daiwa, but they don't listen to us. Nothing they have done in the last 10...

Re: Favorite EWG Flipping Hook

I use the 7/0 Trokar Big Nasty with the 4.5" Yum Christie Critter and other larger thick body baits like Zoom Mag lizards. I feel like a wide gap hook of the same size doesn't hook up as well as a standard offset worm hook, so I upsize when using wide gap hooks. X2 when fishing in heavy cover. Othe...

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

I use the 7'5 Irod Air. Love it for all things frog. Run through some pretty heavy mats and slop with no issues. Handle is a touch longer than some like, I know my father in law modified his from a local rod builder and now it fits him perfectly.

Is it bad that when I read this, all I could think about was how big was your musky?
Not a giant but unexpected and fun

Re: Fishing fingers

A few days ago I had a pulled a muskie close to the boat and was holding onto the line and set my rod down thinking he was done, well he took off and the line cut right through my skin to the bone :sick: Glad it was thin or I would be getting stitches....but damn did it hurt. Is it bad that when I ...

Re: Help IDing this crank

It's a Yamamoto Chikara crank. I remember picking some up from Bass Pro a couple years back.

Rapala and 13 Fishing

Will 13 Fishing still make their own decisions or do they now have to be run through Rapala? You have cut a piece of the market pie because of the chances you were willing to take. I would hate to see that change.

Re: ICAST 2019

Looking forward to seeing more on the Fuse Carbon, a new handle construction method sounds interesting! More on FUSE Carbon launching shortly... You MUST feel these rods, the sensitivity is mind blowing. The best way our testers have described the feel is "electric". Matt 13 Fishing What about dura...

Re: **Say it ain't so**

This story had all the intrigue of the dateline murder stories. Every page was like, "WTF"!? It sounds like the California Tourney anglers knew, but everyone was afraid to say something for some reason. I am interested in how BASS reacts. My 2 cents is that all his records are either voided or have ...

I know Daiwa has multiple new models to debut. I'm excited to see them and try them out.
Yes indeed. I've fished quite a few of the new introductions, good stuff coming for sure from our Daiwa friends =D>
Ughh… Teases :crying:
