Someone talk me out of this....

Post by CodyNeely11 » Tue Jan 12, 2021 1:44 pm

I really think I need to add a steez AGS 7’6 MML to my collection. Currently have 1 spinning rod, the addermine. The steez should compliment nicely being so versatile. I welcome any and all suggestions if there is a better option I’m missing.

Main uses would be Ned rigs, Neko rigs, and small swimbaits.

What weight Ned’s ? I have to ask as they’ve grown from the original prescription. Just curious.

I fish them a bit along with a ton of finesse stuff on spins and have never found a Loomis of some sort that I couldn’t match to conditions. Just asking.

Thank you sir. I figured heavier than I use for them that’s why I always ask nowadays. Ten years ago I didn’t have to.

That would be 872 NRX territory for me (weight) with other offerings (tube).

I tried :lol:

Happy shopping sir.

Get it over wise YOU will never know.
Do a review on the good and bad and let us know what you think

Just my thoughts because I’ve been there and not knowing is worse than buying it and not liking it.
At least if you don’t like it you can resale it.

I got one a couple months ago and I don't love it. There, did I talk you out of it? :)

Your "problem" is that it's a legitimately great rod, and I don't actually regret my purchase. It's very sensitive and has a crazy weight range, which makes it versatile. It does feel a bit awkward to me (the big AGS guides contribute to that feel), it feels a bit noodly, I really dislike the hook keeper, and I'm not a huge fan of EVA handles (I can fix cork gashes and nicks, but if EVA gets slashed, it stays broken). But the 761MML does stuff that I can't do with other rods, it does it excellently, and it fills a hole in my arsenal (I was looking for a long-range, deep-water DS rod from shore). Sounds like it might do the same for you.

Buy it! If you like the addermine you'll like the AGS line. The 7-6 covers a lot of techniques. Comfortable handle and great craftsmanship as well.

If you want someone to talk you out of it consult your wife/GF. This place is just the opposite...

I really like the 7’6” spinning rods and the AGS mml is my favorite.
