I would definitely like to see a new Core come out as well. Such a popular reel still in the used market.

Get that Zillion TW SV with ZPI M or PG spool, and the reel is soooo good for any applications.

Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

Need to pick one of these rods. Has to be a person on here that has tried both and can give me an opinion. I only carry one spinning rod. I will usually use it for bottom contact but I like the idea of versatility. My previous rod was a Dobyns Champion XP 682SF. The reel is the current gen Shimano S...
