Re: Your Path to the Dark Side ...

Daiwa Sol lead to Alpha Type R, but the real love came from OG Steezs going on sale at TW.

Re: Swimbait rod

Sorry for the late response to my own post. My rod is the MB Orochi XX Leviathan F10-80XX. I really like the Moderate action of my MB BJ Power Versatile and wish I could find an F8 Swimbail rod with that action. Looks like the Omega Leviathan might work. Thanks for the responses.

Swimbait rod

Looking for Swimbait rod to cast 5 to 6 oz Bullshads and some glide baits. Had a SRD but handle was to short and my XX Leviathan is stiff. More of a lop than casting. Is there something more moderate that handles these baits or am just stuck with lop casts.

Re: Confirmed new Nrx coming out !!

Looking forward to reading reviews on the 821s NRR and 903c MBR. Those are the main 2 on my radar. After a lifetime of hating spinning gear, I've kinda been enjoying it lately, trying to do everything under the sun on my 822 SYR. Kinda want an all around rod. But one specifically for ned rigs and 1...

Re: Calling all Megabass IP79 owners

I have an IP68 and IP79. They are excellent all around reels. The stock spool and empty itself of line with a frog and still skip a jig with SV like effortlessness. The HLC spool is a distance monster but should only be used with 1/2oz and up compact baits. It should also be cast hard only or not c...
