Re: Curado 100B upgrade

I put the curado g handle on mine. Is 86mm and has the bigger pg knobs. They can be found on ebay for around 20$. Tackle trap sells a bunch of factory shimano handles also

Re: How many Shimano Antares do you own?

I fished a 12 model and was not impressed. I think the metanium mgl blows it away

Re: Curado K

It is leaps and bounds over the 200i to me. Cast a lot better and smooth like a high end shimano. I do love the 70s tho

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

I got to see and handle the new powell endurance at the richmond fishing expo yesterday and i was very impressed. They are light and very clean. I think the purple is very close to the .8:1.1 tat. I dont think you will find much better in that price range

Will the dsr work for squarebills around cover or is it too stiff?

I held the 6'10" mh in store and was very impressed. The feel and build quality were very nice.

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

Great info eveyone. The Light and Tough looks really interesting. I really like the OG Tatula rods but I have to get a Tat CT CS or Morethan PE to match. Don't know why Daiwa does not match their reels to their rods. I've always been curious about the current gen Mojo rods but know know anything ab...

Re: What is the Tatula SV of rods?

I picked up a tat sv also and looking for a cheaper rod for it. Im between the original tatula 6'10" m or mh and a hammer rod. I've been reading the hype on those 2 over the past couple years and haven't pulled the trigger on one yet. I wish i could feel a hammer before purchasing it. No one i fish...

Re: Imx pro

I got a 853c and to be honest im not very impressed. It feel it's a little tip heavy with my Chronarch mgl. For 300$ rod i feel like it should balance better. It also feels heavy for a rod in that price range but its probably the balance issue. I got spoiled by my xx rods i guess. After spending way...

Re: New Senko/Neko Rod

I really like the expride and zodias. I dont think the expride is that much of a upgrade over the zodias but i love the cork on the expride. I have both imx pro and expride/zodias rods and i feel the shimano is a much better fit for me. Im a sucker for those jdm tapers over the loomis extra fast. I ...
