Re: Antares 2019?

Tactical Bassin just released a YouTube video talking about the new Antares. It was more like a Shimano ad than a review. I wish they would have talked more in-depth about it like casting distance, ergonomics, etc. They used to be pretty objective about their gear, but within the past year they hav...

New Kistler Argon released March 12th

Fairly recent to Kistlers (2017) so I’m not sure where the new Argon will fit in the hierarchy but here’s their teaser for it. Anyone have any additional information? https://youtu.be/gqAAa9JeGUs Edit: As I was looking on their website this actually popped up in the model line section https://www.ki...

Re: You guys hear about a Vision 110+2 ?

Anyone have a chance to fish these yet? I still have a couple weeks to go in my neck of the woods. Gave a sexy french pearl one (confidence color) a good workout today. Didn't catch anything. Didn't catch anything on any jerkbaits for that matter- fish still too deep in ~40 degree water. The plus 2...

First fish on the new vision 110 +2.

That... is a hell of a first fish. Well done. Other than its fish catching ability how was it to fish?

Re: Is there a better deep jerkbait than the staysee 90

Maybe the new Vision 110 +2? I do like the Shadow Rap Deep. Too many northerns around here to throw a 110 all the time. I’ve mentioned this before because I fish waters loaded with pike and we know how pike love to munch on Visions and! Contrary to common belief, we/you can throw them using short a...

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

I was refunded. Fantastic, I know quite a few guys who were ultimately refunded. Glad to hear that... we try hard! It seemed legit as he said he had a guide business and sent an invoice from a tackle shop. The invoice from the tackle shop was misspelled though. I was the one screaming for you guys ...

Re: No lord, please, not another version of Jack Hammer

If your looking for a unique sounding bladed jig, look no further than a Nories Hula Chat. I’ve got a great JDM bait shop very close to home and he just started stocking the Hula Chats. I’ve been curious about them for about a year so I’m definitely going to give them a try. Very funky blade to hea...

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

You guys have actually used micros and minis that function properly? I bought 3 of each and not one ran properly or if it initially did it stopped shortly thereafter

MegaBass approved crank wraps? Would appear

I had just started a conversation with a gentleman who custom paints lures regarding repaints on my chewed up Visions and later that day another member in our group posted crankwraps for 110’s and it appears MegaBass gives it a thumbs up. Whoda thunk it...I know without that endorsement a lot of guy...

Re: Megabass Vision 110 vs Lucky Craft Pointer

surprised no one has mentioned the Jackall Rerange yet. Matt Allen on Tacticle Bassin seems to really like them. Gorgeous looking bait and I’d like to give the Rerange a try. As for the OP’s original question, my preference is 50% Vision 110+1, 30% Vision 110 & 20% Pointer. Like another poster ment...

Re: You guys hear about a Vision 110+2 ?

Got my first two today. Looking at that bill next to the +1 I’m thinking I might need a 10XD rod to work it ;) Since we’re still locked up with ice for the foreseeable future if any of you Southern guys get yours and can try them out, I’m sure we’d all would love to get some honest feedback. I hope...
