Re: Show off what you got for the holidays!

Wait there is a such a thing as "WAY too much tackle"??? :shock: no. no there is not. 8-) There is when you have crankbaits you bought 6 years ago that are BADA$$ but you haven't thrown them yet cuz ...

Re: CI4+/Core/Metanium..

I've tried the CI4+, own 2 cores, and almost picked up the Metanium (went with a Sustain instead because I didn't have a spinning reel until a couple days before Christmas!). Love the Core, passed on the CI4+ (for now anyway) and had a really tough time putting down the Metanium in favour of the Sus...

Re: How many combos do you guys have

Mine are always changing but I think I've settled… for a while at least! Spinning: • G. Loomis NRX 842S SJR & Shimano Sustain 3000FG with… haven't decided yet! Either 6 lb. or 8 lb. fluoro, or 10 lb. or 12 lb. Nanofil. Will be used for drop shotting and light plastics like the Yamamoto Shad Shape Wo...

Re: *NEW* Spinning Rod

Thanks for the info guys! I took Phippy's advice and went with the NRX 842S SJR as it could possibly double as a drop shot rod. The NRX 872S JWR was much stiffer than the NRX 852S JWR so I took it completely out of the mix. Then I discovered the NRX 842S SJR and it felt perfect. Picked up a Sustain ...

*NEW* Spinning Rod

I have the opportunity to pick up a new spinning rod - and what will be my only spinning rod - and am trying to decide between these three rods: GLX 852S JWR, NRX 852S JWR, and NRX 872S JWR. A few different questions for those who have any experiences with any of the three: • What do you use it for?...

Tennessee Bassin'

Heading to Nashville just after Christmas and was wondering what good fishing is available nearby. I'd like to get a guide and would love to catch a striper on the fly or standard bass gear!

Any tips or info is greatly appreciated.

p.s. driving down from the great white north!

Re: NRX 916C UBR

Hmmm...I guess it would depend on the round reel. If it was like an Abu Garcia 5500C3, I would say it might not feel right (the reel seat and handle in this rod are not oversized like they seem to be on the heavier G Loomis Swimbait Rods). I have some smaller round baitcasters, like the old Bass Pr...

Re: NRX 916C UBR

I have both the 916 and 895. When I get a chance, I will go to my local pond and throw some frogs with each and let you know how they feel. I originally chose to pick up the 916 but changed my mind last minute and went with the 895. Finally got it last week. Been waiting since July so I missed my c...

Re: Core 50 line options

I have mine spooled with 30 lb. braid… casted well last time out a few weeks ago. I've tried my 100 spooled with 10 lb. before so I'd love to try 8 lb. with it!

Cumara Crankbait Rod

I just ordered a Cumara Crankbait rod (7'0" MH) and was wondering what experiences people have had with it!

I've never felt one in person so I'm hoping it'll pair nicely with my Calcutta TE200GT!


I'm thinking about it using it for spoons for steelhead in a few weeks too. :big grin:
