It also helps keep the filler in the cork.
This is the main reason I use it as it keeps the filler in place.

Re: I don't use spinning gear at all. Do you?

Sure do. I have 2 spinning setups. I use them mostly for drop shot and small keitechs. Although I have BFS setups that can handle these weights, I like spinning rods for these. Also, small tubes work better on a spinning rod because I can get the lure to drop straight down.

Re: Best rod to pair with Steez CT ?

I have one paired with a MB X7 Super Eiger with 8lb flouro. I throw a 4" senko a lot on it but its also great for small texas rigs. I have a 2nd paired with a custom rod (medium power) that is used for jerkbaits. I have a 3rd paired with a Phenix K2 medium light that I have been using for smaller je...

Re: Nrx 852c jwr

I mostly use mine for dragging tubes with a 1/8 oz jighead, weightless flukes, and jerkbaits. Sometimes I will throw texas rigs with 1/8 oz weight and a finesse worm. It's definitely an open water rod. For 3/16 or 1/4 oz Texas rigs, I use an 893 NRX.

Re: The most important setup-your truck and rig

No pics but I have a 2006 Bass Cat Puma (20'5") and I pull it with a 2018 F150 3.5L Ecoboost. I purchased the boat new for $47K and the truck new for $53K. It's my dream setup and I'm lucky to have it. I'm 49 and married but have no kids so plenty of money to spend on toys.

Re: What is your go-to Jackhammer/Cricket trailer?

Keitech Swing Impact Fat 3.8 to 4.8 all year. It's mostly due to the high level of continence I have using them. I'm sure many other trailers work well too.

Re: Is the spawn the best time of year to catch your new PB?

I catch my biggest bass of the year in early spring before the spawn when the water is in the low 50's. My personal best is 7.25 and was caught in NJ the last week of March on a cold rainy day with water temps around 50 degrees.

Re: Rods you bought for one technique that you weren't thrilled with initially ...

MB X4 Destruction. I bought it for punching mats. When I received it and put a reel on it, I was so un-impressed, I almost sold it. One day I tied on a 1/2 oz chatterbait. After hooking my first bass over 4 lbs that morning, I realized how well it works for moving baits. The softer action keeps them...

Re: EVA handles ... yea or nay ?

I like a mix of both. Cork below the reel and EVA on the locking nut and butt cap for split grip setup.

Re: Uses for Copoly?

No issues with breakage. Be careful tying your knots and you will be ok. If you get a bad backlash, that could cause issues because heat caused by friction can create weak spots in the line. One you get used to casting with it, you shouldn't have any issues. The sensitivity depends on the line. Eas...

Re: Uses for Copoly?

I use copoly for topwater and squarebills. Braid for chatterbaits. For everything else, I use flouro. Any particular reason? I'm a big fan of fluorocarbon but its not the best choice for every application. For topwater poppers and walkers, I want a floating line with some stretch to help keep the f...

I have one as well. No mods needed as the handle is 90mm. You won't regret it.
