Re: Who regularly throws small 3/16-1/4 spinnerbaits?

i enjoy throwing the small single blade H & H spinnerbaits around timber. they're heavy in relation to their size but still have a good thump that'll get bites. chartreuse is always a good color. may try changing blade colors for fun of it.

Re: Who fishes with OLD rods?

i still use a few older rods. i've a lot(not by TT standards) of Shimano graphites-(Aero's, Fightin', magnumlite's) rods. and a few Garcia, BASS PRO SHOPS, AllStar and Fenwick fiberglass and graphite rods i still throw. just recently bought an old zebco 3366 rod for the handle and nostalgia. it was ...

Re: Question on Broken Megabass Rod

i think i'd go with the idea of now having a truly CUSTOM heavy spinnerbait and jig rod. as you said, going the warranty route may not be going to give the value another new bandersnatch purchase would. i'd keep it as is, put a good tip on it and have it for stronger duty. definitely a bummer at any...

Re: building your own rods/mhx

this is MY take on rodbuilding: there is a learning curve. steep at times, many things can go wrong. it's demanding, deatil(see how that went wrong?) wise. fun to do. you can make whatever you want, however you want it. options are practically endless. stealth to sublime and all in between. i'd star...

Re: What's in your reel collection?

Megabass FX68R Rosso The Lews is on my travel setup. Don't have rods yet for the TD-Z or the Megabass. I don't have much of a collection compared to a lot of you but then again I'm pretty new to the JDM/high end scene. How do you like your Rosso? what are you planning on using it for? one megabass ...

Re: Shimano baitcaster handle

"older shimano" as in the Calcutta 100 i snapped up at a pawn shop this week? looks like something has taken a chunk out of one of the knobs. handle replacement is in order. other than that i'm really impressed with it. i will check the shimano facebook out.

Re: Throw in the Towel

All the time :lol: Well... More like put on hold until I find an interest in them again but I have unfinished rods, bare blanks, blanks with handles on them and reels that are completely taken apart. I haven't touched some of those stuff in over a year. Same with my venture into building swimbaits....

Re: Which shorty/shower Blows style bait brand is the best?

i've got a bunch of top water baits. never did do a lot with them for years. got a couple of shower blows shorty baits. just a world of difference to me when it comes to ease of use. like 'em a lot. doubt i'll throw spooks very much.

Re: Counterfeit Megabass Reels?

I got one each of the fx68 rosso and viola; from the auction site 220 each plus shipping each. the last few the guy has have now risen to 295 each shipping each. reels cast great. I don't doubt for a second their authenticity.

Re: Spinning Reel Deal?

I don't think the local Dick's store would know what a steez or sustain was. I have more fly tackle than they do. to be honest some did come from their- redington ct reels! score for $29 each. don't think I've ever found much there. acdemy opened here recently and is dominating local sales.
