Re: Megabass Orochi XX vs Expride vs New GLX??

Hey rick i have a few of the orochi xx rods and also have the new glx rods which i have used for a longer period of time on the water due to them coming out first. In my hands i will give the glx a tad better rating in the sensitivity department its not putting the xx to shame or anything but it doe...

Re: Am I crazy?!

i went that route before and i would strongly suggest not selling the rods you have. i am now back up to 9 combos lol where i sold all my fishing gear last year, so yeah i have to do some retying at the moment. At one point i had around 30 combos and like the above comment when you get past that num...

Re: xship vs air rotate

yeah its a shame offdahook you have to keep doing this, there are a lot of helpful people on this forum who would really help you out on these sort of questions if you would stop the manner in which you post your topics.

Re: 7' vs 7'6 - Distance Difference?

yeah i agree with mattman on the wind and lure that is being thrown. say you were thowing a bandit that is unweighted for the most part compared to a megabass bait or something that has a better casting system you will see the difference. i had a dobyns 705 and a 764 rm cranking rods last year with ...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX do it all or most?

i have the xx spinnerbait special, and the xx extreme mission type f. I have found those two rods to be very versatile. The spinnerbait special has surprised me i have thrown spinnerbaits, chatterbaits, small jigs and t rigs, senkos , and some small swimbaits like the swing impacts. The rod handled ...

Re: Newest Combo

great combo have had mine for a week now and love it. it has turned out to be a very versatile rod from what i imagined from first handling it to actually getting to fish with it.

Re: Crainkbait/Topwater Rod Poll

i have used the crucial and the dobyns 704 cb and prefer the dobyns for the lighter cranks it shines with 3/8 oz cranks and topwaters. I have also used it to throw vision 110s which are 1/2 oz and it handles them fine as well. Makes a good rico rod as well even with the the 1/4 ricos. i like the cru...

Re: New GLX vs old GLX MBR842C and SJR782??

the new glxs def have a softer tip than the old glx models i have noticed while using some of them. I had the new glx 854 and 853 and both of their tips where more soft than the older model glx rods

Re: i curado VS tatula

yeah i was curious about the drag myself. i caught some good ones today on the cu i and was impressed the way it pretty much manhandled the fish. in my hands the new curado is more smooth than my ci4 chronarch, well we will call it close haha.

Re: How light can the core throw?

yeah i would choose not to throw those weights on the 743. like mentioned above i would go with the 2 power, havent fished a 1 power but can only imagine it would handle lighter weights as well. i would usually throw down to 1/4 just fine with the core stock. i have thrown 3/16 with it stock but spi...

Re: Spinning reels: high end versus lower end

thats what i had found as well i used to have some abu soron spinning reels then went to shimano and only thing i saw the shimano did cast a bit further than the abu with the same weights, rod, and line. i have also had the stradic fj before and it didnt really blow me away, but it was tough as nail...

Re: Do you really need a Frog Rod for frogs?

yeah i wouldnt buy into the frog rod concept so much because there are a lot of good options. i usually let the cover dictate the rod i use. i have used dx 745 and dobyns champ 734 in more moderate cover and have never had a problem. i really like the 734 in open water because it has a nice tip for ...

Re: Curado 200i pics next to Ch/Met 100 Platform

i agree with buster i really like the aluminum feel and i can tell it is going to be a strong reel i didnt catch anything on it today just casted around but i really like it. I like how the lines flow on my ci4 chronarch better but thats just a cosmetic thing the curado looks great i just dont like ...

Re: Curado "I" made in Japan??

yeah i didnt like seeing malaysia on the bottom when i got it :| but i have to say i really like the reel but only time will tell though. I still get down at the fact that i look at the citica e and it is even japan.
