Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Sad to say, but there is zero credibility for this type of thing here in USA. Shame this is what we have come to. Wish we could reverse this situation and stop this sort of thing because people like this are contributing to this: http://www.goldprospectingonline.com/wp-content/uploads/2012/01/us-do...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

Very glad to hear the MS-X version is that versatile! Do you run braid to leader for jerkbaits on the 6'5" ML or is the action fast enough to get sharp movement out of the bait without braid? So, it was a rough day yesterday. The only action I got was a head butt or tail slap on a 110 Jr, fished on...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

If that Corzza is anything like the MS-X 65ML (and having a cross force blank and SS/SiC K guides it should be) I think you'll be impressed with its casting distance and sensitivity. I've had that one for 2 or 3 years and it's great for precision casts with flick shakes, senkos, and finesse jigs. I...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

Oh man. Well, at the risk of sounding like a paid promoter, I have to say they are sublime. Thanks for the detailed write-up. I saw Major Craft was selling the Corzza line at ~$150 shipped and I was hemming and hawing over trying out a 6'5" ML. Pulled the trigger and now I'm just hoping I like it e...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

Megabass xti evolution series. These are stuck between the vaulted xfti that have better re-sale value due to collector interest and newer C40s that look exotic. But, xti are awesome and there seems to be a ton of them floating around used or barely used that can be had cheap. It's not as easy as f...

Extrapolating from the rest of the lineup, I read the first two "XS" models as spinning.

2nd vote for the Revenge Darter Hedz here, perfect size and a great looking bait.

2 Vision One Ten LBO Max, a jerkbait claim to cast 40% further than regular one :-k
At 3/4 oz that may be possible, but I can't help but wonder how the action/running depth is impacted.

Re: Interesting Take on Drop Shot Knot

Awesome knot, super quick to tie and the hook stands straight out. I started using it last summer and haven't had any issues with 6 or 8 lb InvizX.

Re: What’s your 2019 Rod to have?

I really only need a Kistler H3 dropshot rod and a Ci4 2500. I'll probably get a 73H Zbone because I have a problem ](*,) If it helps, after fishing a Helium 3 7'0" ML paired up with a Stradic FK pretty frequently throughout 2018 I have nothing but good things to say about the combo, feels great an...

Looks like the Scorpion MGL will be a 150 size. A Curado/Scorpion 70 MGL would be a more interesting addition IMHO.

Re: Megabass levante

Really wish I needed another rod. Just got to tying up some NFC blanks I bought a few months ago I don't "need" a crankbait rod, but I don't yet have one. I have predominantly shorter rods, so I was thinking the Levante Launcher would cover both the "crankbait" and "crazy long" bases. I just need t...
