Re: Chronarch MGL interesting story

I have 2 chronarch mgls a hg and xg and to me they're just as good as my metainum mgl hg. Now i got a bantam hg and feel all 3 are in the same league. My chronarch hg has been used for traps and spinnerbaits and is just as smooth as when i first got her

Re: Kistler He3 vs ALX Zolo

I own several of the Zolos and they are great rods. That being said, I have around 20 Kistler KLX and He3 rods and they see a lot more service than the Zolos. They have a lighter and crisper feel to them and are very sensitive (especially the He3s). I also have heard miscellaneous rumblings about t...

Re: Kistler He3 vs ALX Zolo

I have the 6'9" mh h3 and use it for spinnerbaits and love it you just have to let the fish eat the spinnerbait and not take it away from it to fast because it is sensitive and you don't have to hammer them on a hookset just let it load up and sweep like a crankbait.

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

I lost a new chronarch e6 and tfo rod. I think i left it laying on the back deck before a rough ride across the potomac. Got to the next spot and she was gone. Sorry for your loss that stings for awhile especially if you had some of those hard to find baits
