Re: What do you look for in a rod?

I've latched onto customs, so that is the biggest thing that changed for me. There are very few production rods I'd buy.

Re: Electric Only / Low HP Motor Lakes

I live just a short drive south of Lake Erie in PA and most of our lakes are either 10hp and electric only or they are unlimited horsepower w/ no wake. It really makes for a peaceful fishing experience and like Tok, I fish Erie often, but it's so massive, I can always fire up big momma and get away...

Re: Yo Zuri Hybrid ?Stretch?

Does everyone prefer the Ultra Soft YZH over the regular? I've been thinking about picking up a spool or two just not sure if I should go with US or not. I know the US is supposed to be more supple for use on spinning reels, but a line's manageability is a huge factor for me even on a baitcaster. S...

Re: Zillion 100H HCL

Yes, I think the 100M spool would be a better pitching spool for the Zillion. x2 Hard to control when casting tho...at least it was for me. Some other users don't seem to have that issue...some do. However, I've found the HLC spool is no slouch for pitching, but I pitch with all the brakes off. I w...

Re: Pond fishing

A lipless crank is the first thing I'd try. A senko is a great choice too.

Re: My only 3 bass rod

Great looking combos! I love the Sol's original color, but both those customs look SICK! In time your collection will grow. Until then, quality over quantity! :D And the handles are on the CORRECT side! :lol: :lol: Quality over quantity is definitely the way to go. I learned this the expensive way....

Re: Electric Only / Low HP Motor Lakes

I looooooooove electric only lakes. That's my primary body of water, with Erie being second. I love the fact there are no powered boats out on the local reservoir. Every time I go to Erie there is at least one idiot on a jet ski that just neeeeeeeds to get close enough that I can hit him with a cran...
