How would you compare the expride vs. your adrena Rods?
First off I haven't been able to fish a rod from both lineups in similar length/action. I can say flipping with the 7'3XH Expride vs the 7'4XH PA the Poison had much more feel! That split grip disappears behind you where every other rod I've ever fished you know theres blank behind your wrist. The Poison's on average in my experience are just as accurate as the Exprides.

Those rods have been sitting in the sun for a minimum of 90-110 days between 3 years of fishing. No ware no blistering in the blanks like all my NRX's did after simple being fished. The quality of both lineups of rods is second to none. This fall I'll be upgrading the entire fleet and replacing the fleet with new Poison Adrena/Exprides! These rods have performed flawlessly. I would go Expride before GLX and Poison Adrena before NRX.

I see you have a nice collection of budget UL and L rods. How do they stack up?

Yes I do and it’s hard to compare because I don’t really have any high end rods, but I’m very happy with my collection of rods and just can’t let myself spend over $150 for a rod. The Kuying, Tsurinoya and bottom end Major Craft rods are good stuff.

Lovin my new 19' Shimano Antares 70 6.2gr. Great caster, so smooth, virtually no backlash. 2 brakes on with no problems. And I really like the clicker on the drag. Well worth the money imo. I got it from JapanLure, fast shipping. I recieved it within 5 days. Came with a very nice MegaBass lure.

Sorry for the late reply. I had 17lb Berkley Ultra 8, but trying out 40lb Gliss.
