The Most Coveted rods of the X7 line up are?

Post by goldrod » Thu Nov 15, 2018 10:26 am

AND,
What rods in any current line up exceed them for a specific technique?



I have a Super rekkai and I have been looking for X7 rod that is longer BUT has the same action and power. I was looking at the 7'1" Valkyrie but from the current write up seems like the 7'6" rod may be the better buy. I'm trying to decide now as any rod over $350 will evaporate its worth when you try to resale it if you don't like it. Plus I have a few flippin sticks that are good with me. I don't want to but I will get another IF its versatile and worth it. ..

Far as I am concerned the x7 destruction is one of the best but it really fits the way I fish so it subjective to a point. Football jigs ,big worms big spinnerbaits, paddle tails it can do a lot. I would love to get my hands on an x7 elseil

I have a Super Eiger, Super Elseil, Rekkai, Western Flip, and a Parry Arc. Love the X7's, Super Elseil and Rekkai are my favorites. Would love to acquire an Extreme Mission and Simoom.

Super Eiger is awesome as a medium / medium light type rod. Super Elseil also has the it factor.

Yea I wish they still made this series and if anything expanded the lineup with that build and blank. This series just seemed to be a little lighter, a little more sensitive and have a little more of the "it" factor than the other destroyer lines.

I think the super eiger goes down as the best rod in the lineup. Used ones sell immediately and its just an awesome medium light/medium powered rod. Definitely more of a medium power imo, ive actually done open water froggin on mine in the past.

I love the super criffhanger and shading-x as well for bfs sticks.

Amen, the Eigers go so fast. I still kick myself for not getting one when they were more available...I have a NIB Zonda Hedgehog waiting for one.

The DFM is my absolute favorite. I have one paired with an Antares DC, and it is the best 1/2oz spinnerbait setup I've ever fished.

Yea I always have my Super Eiger on the deck. I use it with braid and a leader and use it for topwaters, lighter jigs and texas rigs. I have a PX Type R with a CP-301 spool and it is my most "fun" setup. Also makes an unbelievable walleye hair jig setup!

I have quite a few of them.
I have to pick the Eiger, and Shading X.
The Eiger is super sensitive, and the shading X just has that "it" factor for effortless casting distances, I use mine for swim jigs.

Gary was the one who got me into the line. I've been collecting them ever since. 8-)

I love the Super Eiger too. I throw light plastics and small swimbaits on it.

Super Elseil is probably the hardest to source.. Super Eiger is probably the most loved.
