Re: 13 Omen Black 2 H?

No experience with the H powered omens, but I will say the step up from the 6'10 M omen to 7'1 MH omen was pretty drastic. The blank is much bigger and bulkier, and the rod just generally feels clubby to me. Not my finest purchase, but I'm sure I'll figure somewhere to use it at some point.

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

No I fish the White River close to Batesville AR. Some of the tightest (hard) finesse fishing ever, overrun with aggressive little smallmouth, but there are some MONSTERS in there. Also monster stripers below dams, really good fishing, just takes a while to figure it out. Problem with our system is...

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

Doesn't sound like we're too far from each other. You ever fish Frierson? I've never fished there, but I used to pass by there a lot when I was an appraiser.

Re: Fury 705cb??

Perfect!

I'm trying to drop a rod and pick up something that will basically cover everything down to 10', and from there go to my deep crank rod. Right now I'm using a 7'2 mh steez, but it's a bit stiff for the 1.5's.

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I'm just guessing, but I would think the gen4 uses basically the same frame as the new lews & bps reels. I have the carbonlite 2.0 on my plastics rod and the alx on my jig rod, and while there is a difference in size it's not a lot. I do prefer the Abu, as it has a flat front piece on top of the...

Fury 705cb??

Anyone here have this rod? I'm needing a 7' m+ cranking rod that will handle 1.5, 2.5, and pretty much anything down to 8-9'

Re: Have you guys ever had this problem with shimano reels?

Things like that only happen on the "junk" reels doesn't it?? :lol:

Of course, I'm just kidding. I'm neither snob or cheapskate, I use whatever.

I came across your videos a couple of weeks ago. When I heard you mention TT, I figured you must be a member so I subscribed.

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I wouldn't let the braking scare you off of these reels. I got to fish the reel this weekend and had no problems at all...other than getting rained on!

Btw, where are you located?

Re: Tasty vs assassin

Thanks for thr response. I'm not unhappy at all with the assassin, but Tatsu has still got the "best fc" hype. I may try some if I catch it on sale

Tasty vs assassin

I've been using 17# assassin and really like it, but the Tatsu is still kinda nagging at me. Guys that have used both, is there enough performance difference to justify the cost? I would be going with 20 in the Tatsu

Re: Any info on abu Garcia Revo alx?

I got the alx in yesterday and really like it! I haven't fished with it yet but pitched around with it enough to get it dialed in. I will probably replace 1 more reel with another alx.

Re: Delta blanks

I have 4 Deltas and bought them because someone on this forum said they were like IMX blanks but not sanded and he said he got that info from talking to someone at NFC on the phone. Well, NFC updated their website and have a more specific description of the deltas and it's a surprise to me that the...

Re: Kastking reels

I haven't used one but it seems they are totally polarizing as it seems like people say they are the best reel ever made or total crap. Now I am pretty sure they aren't on par with a Curado, Tatula, or something of that caliber but would they be a good reel for someone on a tight budget as a better...
