Re: One for the Enthusiasts: The Shimano Antares A70 Baitcaster with MGIII

Great piece sir. I'm getting one. Thanks.

Ps: I think you also traveled back with a Complex CI4. I'll be interested in your thoughts.

Well done.

Re: Feed Your Enthusiast Soul : Conquest 842C MBR

I too, wish G.Loomis would make more 1 power rods ... I will cast a vote for that as well. If a Conquest spin were available in a 1 power or better yet Mag Light I would pre-order a couple tonight. I was hopeful one would be coming with the demise of of 901 NRX. Perhaps one day. Well done as always...

Re: St Croix SCV panfish rods

Thank you for the reply sir. I fish spins with my hand forward of the reel stem with index and middle finger wrapped around the blank with thumb extended on the blank vs the reel stem between my fingers. I figured that you were in the latter group if preferring the Croix handle. The TSR 791 GLX is c...

Re: St Croix SCV panfish rods

No doubt in my military mind it is the finest UL rod on the shelves in the USA. Glad it’s working out for you. Regards Yep, just wanted to throw out some thoughts on it for those that may not be ready to take the plunge on the JDM stuff quite yet. I imagine I'll eventually take the JDM plunge mysel...

Re: NRX 9th Year at ICast 2019 / Revamp?

Since the disappearance of the 901 spin I will cast a vote for a 1 power Conquest Spin. Better yet a "00" Mag Light. I know I'm dreaming. More so with one that the handle doesn't extend past my elbow when wrapping index and middle finger around the blank. Until then Loomis spins will land every smal...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

I grew up between Oneida and Cayuga in upstate NY. When my wife and I decided to build a log home thirteen years ago in the woods it had to be on a smallmouth river out of New Yorks snow belt where we could fish year round. Yes sir I'm familiar with the New and all of the smallmouth rivers in the pa...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

Here is a piece that recently did for Ned Kehde. It is an always rigged offering for me nowadays so much so that I have a rod coming specifically for it.

Quite welcome sir. I have been waiting for a new Certate for a few years and like you have been looking for a release date here. I still haven't found one.

Re: 2019 daiwa certate

It was at the Classic sir. Like you I've seen little mention of it from the coverage regarding releases. Odd. I watched a tear down video yesterday. My take and I could be way off. Looks like my '18 Exists of course but also much heavier. Similar to the '16 Certate weights. Looks to be well protecte...

Re: 1000 size shimanos

Anyone else use the 1000 size shimano reels? Yes sir and like you I've used about every Shimano size iterations over the years from 1000-4000. All kinds of early Stradics, Stradic Ci 4 (A and B), Sustains etc Model sizes depending on where I was at with my smallmouth fishing. I suspect I've landed ...

Re: Loomis Bassmaster Classic Releases?

I've heard nothing though I haven't asked my Loomis confidant. I won't either as he's a good friend.

I would however vote for a 1 power Conquest Spin. I would preorder tonight. Doubtful but I could hope. I would like to think that the 901 NRX was taken away for a reason.

Re: Gloomis Classic Trout

I throw a lot of 3/16-1/4 ounce baits jerkbaits for trout, will the 791 be able to handle that? I've been using a 842 SJR or Adderemine. No sir. Strictly open hook weightless and 1/32 fine wire heads with non salted offerings in my hand. Though it'll chuck a #7 original Rap or 1/8 UL Rapala popper ...
