I understand some of the issues with quality control. Hit or miss in my experience with Gloomis. I continue to buy because I love their actions and performance! I have 4 NRX+ now. Haha

Which models? I like to live through others and their spending habits. :lol:

Re: Kistler rod clearance

I added some additional impressions to the last Kistler thread http://www.tackletour.net/viewtopic.php?f=46&t=85040&start=75. At $270, a Helium might be a good investment, but bite detection is a potential issue. I certainly wouldn't buy a new Zbone after what I've experienced so far. The new Zbone...

Re: American Tackle Components

These things look :big grin: I broke my custom, so when I get to another I may try this setup in matte https://static.wixstatic.com/media/8bdd64_e1ba4e27256644f8b9a20c3d7448aabd~mv2.jpg/v1/fill/w_700,h_469,al_c,q_80,usm_0.66_1.00_0.01/G2-Tsuka-MatteBlack-1.webp https://www.americantackle.us/g2-tsuka

Re: Daiwa Catalina TW 100 Spool

I put a zillion 1520 spool in mine. I was able to put lots of 20lb cxx on it for big baits. The JDM site had this I used as reference "Wide range of SPOOL compatibility Especially compatible with ZILLION 1500 series, compatible with 1.0-300 for 1516, 1.0-400 for 1520 and DEEP tyraba." What JDM site...

Re: Olympic Vigore

Saw some 20's on an overseas site, but based on the price they quoted me to ship a lure, the cost for the rod will be a mortgage payment :lol:

Re: New NFC material

I just snapped my MB 736 xray from a gator scare with a fish on the line :lol:

I want to rebuild, but am wondering if I should wait.

Hopefully the blanks aren't going to price me back to the xray for now

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

It's a great wobblehead rod. I've cranked on it and the taper is there, but it's a bit too heavy and stiff for that to my liking. Overall it's an amazing all-around rod. It can jig (beats many dedicated rig rods in that area), it can frog (in light to med cover), it can do topwater (too heavy and s...

Re: New Megabass Destroyers

So how is everyone liking the Super Destroyer that has had it for a while now? I like it a lot. I've been using it primarily for topwater lures (buzzjets, horny toad) and some of the smaller swimbaits (Gancraft 128, etc.) over the last several weeks. Rod has plenty of power and is responsive. I bou...
