Re: ICAST 2019

Probably something similar to Poison Adrena, which been selling on Internet, quite a
long time, and came up as a "new" product on US market.

Re: High end JDM rod recommendations

Yeah, I have some Poison Glorious and Ultimas rods, and they are really cool rods. Love those handles.
However, my next rod is going to be a Daiwa RD.

Re: Hooks/Split Rings

Do not like Owner hooks in saltwater, because they rust.
Split rings are great though.

Switched completely from Owner to Gamakatsu.
Nanosmooth Coat for freshwater.
Hyper Shield for saltwater.

Re: SV Spool Inductor

Which SV spools are prone to be stuck?
Never had any issues with Zillion or Steez G1 spools.

Re: Mail Call

New month, and another call directly from Japan, brought to here by KUBOTA staff. New 2019 product from Jackall - TN80, should be good in saltwater. B Crawler Swimmer swimjigs and a trailer for it - B Crawl Flapper. Excellent combo, catches bass even in clear water. https://live.staticflickr.com/655...

Re: High End JDM spinning rod help

Gentlemen, I decided, I'll go with Shimano Ultima 2610L-S, the length was the deciding factor, can't except (mentally) anything lower than 6'10". Should be a great combo paired with Vanquish 2500SHG or C2500SHG. Thank you so much your valuable input! Learning everyday by reading this forum! TT rocks!

Re: Favorite Chatterbait

Wow! Why so many? It's one of my to go-baits and the availability is mostly really bad - therefore I am glad to get the chance to buy some of them from time to time. In that box you have all weights 1/8, 3/16, 1/4Oz and colors? Or just one model? I guess you have a lot of pikes out there. I would t...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

I recall receiving a Rage 68MH rod as a promotional rod at one point. (It was a deal, buy two Extremes and get one Rage) And it was a decent rod for the retail price ($149), caught a lot of fish on it. Sensitivity was good. In general I like higher end St. Croix sticks for sensitivity, don't see any...
