A new pride and joy

Post by Ripken_240 » Fri Dec 21, 2018 3:23 pm

After much time of my NIB Illusion sitting on the shelf, she now has a partner worthy to sit upon! The ARMS superleggera 7005X.

Nice pick up and beautiful combo. Wasn’t the right time for me, but sure did give it a long look.

Thanks bud. I was eyeing the rod for some time and finally was able to pull the trigger on it.

What do you plan on using the superleggera for. Would it be good for bottom contact. 7ft 5 power with a fast action, sounds like it would be foot for t-rigs smaller jigs

Very nice. An ARMS is the only Megabass rod that I would want to own. =D>

I'll most likely use the rod for bottom contact, jigs and t rigs. It's got a very versatile action to it that will work for quite a few techniques.
