Re: MB Brigand - Feedback

Never liked casting this rod. just never really loads up quite right. But love this rod once the bait is in the water, I strictly use it for deep baits, mainly 1/2 ounce tubes, blade baits and 1/4 to 1/2oz swimbaits. Was expecting a bit more from it. wish it was a bit more like the phase 3 beast hunts

Re: Show off your OG Zillion

Thanks, I wish I could take better pics of that black zillion. So much nicer in person

The 50th has a 90mm RCS crank handle.

Re: SI for Trolling Motor

I have my front SI unit speed set at 1. I use a troll perfect on my TM and a lot of time set it on constant speed to cruise a shore line. i'll keep about 75 feet away from the shore and scan up to the shore and opposite side of the boat. it's amazing how much structure i come across on the opposite ...

Pfleuger Patriarch vs Lew Tourney Pro

Hey Guys, Both these reels seem pretty nice and are in the same price range. Lews seems to have quite a good reputation, but I can't find much on the the Pfleuger. Has anyone used the the new Pfleuger Patriarch's? And which one would you guys go with? Oh ya it's going on a dobyns 736 champion Thanks

Braid Ready Spools

I know typically you put a backing on before spooling braid. But more and more you start seeing braid ready spools. I fish with lews reels. The super duty has this spool but I've added backing, but i found as the season goes on, with break offs and and re-tying knots, I'm starting to see the backing...

Super Tuning - Pinion and Yoke - Calcutta 200GTB

Ok, So over the winter I pulled apart my Calcutta 200GTB for some maintenance and upgrades. Replaced spool bearings with boca’s and carbon drag washers. Then I start reading up on super tuning. So I polished the shims, the spool shaft, inside the pinion gear and brake race way. Anyway I noticed one ...

Re: Dobyn's 766 - Double Duty Rod?

Thanks for the answers, it brought to light a bunch of stuff i never thought of. The reel (300EJ) has being tuned up, polished parts and all bearings replaced with boca bearings. So flipping and pitching shouldnt be to bad. But I'm realizing that this will more primarily be used as a musky/pike rod....

Dobyn's 766 - Double Duty Rod?

So i'm looking for a double duty rod. I would like to be able to throw smaller musky baits up to 2.5oz but mostly around the 1.5oz range. But i'd also like to use it for a Frog/Flipping/Pitching rod for bass. I already have a reel Curado 300EJ for it. Another rod I was looking at is the Pinnacle Per...
