Re: Jerkbait Rod/all around Rod

If you want to save a few bucks i really love the zodias 6'10" m even more than the 6'10" expride. The zodias has more tip and feels faster than the expride to me. Its a great all around rod that can handle jerkbaits mid and square bill cranks lighter spinnerbaits then can throw light wire hook jigs...

Re: GLX reel seats

I have a 893c and don't notice it feeing cramped when fishing it but when i read about this issue and think about it holding it i feel like its cramped. The core 100s/ jdm metainium mgs fit me very good on the 2016 glx. I recently got a aldebaran and put it on my 893 and it feels cramped but maybe i...

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

The tackle addiction is real. When i found TT and BBC it turned me on to stuff i really didnt need to see. It makes me feel better seeing people that have twice as much gear as i do :lol: The past 2 years i started spring with a totaly different line up than i end the year with.I have tried and owne...

Re: New Poison Adrena

First impression of the 7’3mh is what a amazing rod. For right at $300 after the labor day sale its a steal. By the lure rating I was expecting a “stout” mh, rating is right on point. Have a 7.4:1 metanium mgl & id give the balance almost a perfect 10. So far I’ve only fished a 3/8 scrounger. Going...

Re: Megabass rods

I'm still a MB fan but not diehard like I once was. I still have around 2 dozen of them which is almost 2/3 of what I originally had. Out of all of the rods over the years I've only broken 3. I broke 2) Phase 3 Nautilus' and 1) X7 Destruction. Both the Nautilus broke on fish. One on a hookset on an...

Re: Megabass rods

They make a beautiful balanced rod but i see so many post and comments about breakage issues recently in the past year or so. Ive had 2 in the last year break on hooksets of fish that should have never broken a rod. One was a a mart flipping special and the warranty replacement braillist. I've owne...
