Re: Which Luxxe Oltre is right for me?

Yes the 69MH is the rod you want. I already have many hours on the water with the 70H and while you can use it down to 1/4 ounce, 3/8 ounce and up to 1/2 is this rods absolute sweet spot.

X2 spot on....

Re: Evergreen TKIC-DG69MH Stallion

Bassm1n also has the DG stallion... I have the cobra DG, so the the only reason Im commenting is because it shares the "Dense Graphite" blank technology with the DG stallion. Its 6'6" and I bought it for jerkbaits not knowing what the DG stood for. Had I known, i would have bot purchased it for this...

Re: Shimano Jackal poison Ultima - Anyone got one

How come there isn't any love for the new Steez SV103 ? I thought that SV spool in a Steez body would be great for 1/4 to 1/2oz stuff For me, I only have the MB variants and those only go on MB rods. All other rods get Shimano... at this point though, I honestly like my MB and Shimano reels equally...

Re: 70H Luxxe Oltre... Ultimate test. PASS! new pics added p

https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=z5-Ujb8XTX8 The taper looks to be pretty fast from this video. Definitely think that titanium tip contributes a lot to it. I definitely think Ultima is better looking rod, but I am so intrigued by the unique sensitivity Oltre offers. in the video he set pretty good and...

True. If you're looking for a combo thats overall lighter, then put the Met on it! If you're going to be fishing heavier lures with it, then go Antares...

Re: Shimano Jackal poison Ultima - Anyone got one

It is a blast to fish, in part because of the unique feel to it. At first I found it very similar to the 72H Ultima, but more time with it and the differences become obvious. Again, I wont say either is better than the other, just different. The actions are similar but the Ultima is slightly faster...

Re: Shimano Jackal poison Ultima - Anyone got one

I have the 72H and 70M. The 72H I use only for jigs/plastics, the 70M I use for shallow cranks. They are truly exceptional rods... what I have come to find, I love all the different brands (MB, EG, Jackal Poisons, especially the unknown Luxxe Oltre) for different reasons, they each bring different ...
