Re: Part of the club now

Only got to try a 1016 spool today with 8lb big game. Was throwing a weightless fluke (bubblegum of course) and could only throw out with brakes maxed out and spool tension to where the fluke would only move if I flicked the rod. Got surprisingly good distance also considering it was quite windy. I...

Re: thinking of a new bottom contact rod

You have two really good rods! The NRX 894 would be another choice. Good luck in your search!

JDM Zillion HD 1520.jpg[/attachment [attachment=0]JDM Zillion HD 1520.3.jpg How does that monster plam? Like an older Tatula without the mag dial rubbing on your finger? I could go for that. I want a "1516" spool reel to play around with those sized spools. Don't have an older Tat to compare, but i...

Re: Shimano conquest 903c?

Thank you everyone, I might have to pass on it cause I really need a rod that can handle a 110 whopper plopper. I don’t throw a lot of chatterbaits as I’ve had terrible luck with them. Not sure if I’m really looking for a rod of this length. I always wanted an 893 nrx but I now have 894, 853, 852 s...

Re: DAIWA 18 ZILLION TW HLC 1516 SH

X2 on Zillion HD 1520, a 6.3 would do the job. And should you feel the need for HLC, just get a 1514 or 1516 HLC spool for it.

I had a Bantam and replaced it with a Steez A, there is big difference between the two it's on another level over the Bantam in just about every respect.
