Poison glorious with new handle? are you referring to the poison glorious xc rods or is there another pg with the full monocoque?
I'm referring to couple new models they added last year to standard PG lineup with a solid tip.

Re: 4000 Spinning Reels for 7'6" L Rods

I used to use Daiwa's size 3000 (54mm diameter spool) on my ML, M, MH Legend Extreme St. Croix rods, because I thought the bigger spool gives me the edge on distance (it always was speculation about it), which I never actually properly tested. Since I replaced those rods to same rods, I had to down...

Based on like 1 video I saw, the *new* Poison Adrena is more sensitive than the Poison Glorious and is closer to GLX level, possibly approaching NRX. As far as build quality goes, I've read quite a few complaints about the GLX and even NRX. No such complaints about the new PA. Can you post a link? ...

4000 by Daiwa or Shimano? My Daiwa 3000 has bigger spool in diameter than 4000 Stella.

Re: F5-75X7 Extreme Mission

I use this rod primarily for t-rigs in 3/8Oz (and occasionally 1/2Oz plus trailer), also Carolina rigs 3/8-3/4Oz plus trailer.
Like this rod a lot, better balanced and more sensitive than Loomis NRX.

Re: JDM bottom contact rod

Ultima way to easy to obtain than Oltre. Don’t know what graphite actually used to build Ultima’s. Anyway, I would wait three more weeks to see what new tackle is coming up at Yokohama expo.

Re: Steez Bottom Contact & Shimano Poison Adrena

Gary,

What graphite is being used in this Steez AGS bottom contact? SVF or Toray 1100G?
And what is the total weight of this rod?

Re: DRT baits ?

Wondering what happened to DRT by the way?
Those swimbaits have been selling really good, for $70-$90 and DRT just stopped to make new batches without any explanation.
