Re: what is the best one stop shop crankbait rod?

The 764 rm is considerably lighter and smaller diameter blank than the 764 glass. I had the 765 cb glass at one point and it was heavy and clubby in my opinion. The only glass in my lineup is the old original tatula mh glass which is an awesome 3/8 oz chatterbait rod.[ quote=MRQturbo post_id=686391 ...

Re: Football Jig rod vs. C-Rig Rod

I use a champion 804c for both football and Carolina rigging as well as lighter umbrella rigs. It handles all well in my opinion.

Re: what is the best one stop shop crankbait rod?

If I had to pick one it would be my dobyns 764rm. It will throw small flat sides and square bills to smaller deep divers. It has the tip of the 704 coupled with the mid of the 705 and a little extra length that helps with light baits.

Re: Gamma Fluoro and CoPoly

Gamma edge is a great flouro and holds up well to zebras on the great lakes when smallmouth fishing. I tried touch and was not impressed with the durability or sensitivity of that line. Likewise their mono while being a decent line had too much stretch for my liking. I stick to Pline CXX for my mono...

Re: IMX Pro ice rods

I'm guessing a dealer with some Bros named Thorne ;) They have solid carbon blanks made for them to build. I have several Ice rods from them and they are extremely nice. Most of the stuff I've seen from them is in the 90-140$ range. Tuned up custom rods also assemble some nice Ice rods as well again...

Phenix M1 8’ heavy 1-5 oz rating handles jig and treble hooked baits well.

Re: Baits similar to Evergreen Gizmo

I suggest you look into a Deps Basirisky. Weedless frog style bait that I think would have the action your looking for.

Re: Do you mind Daiwa going full Made In Thailand?

It will be interesting to see if Steez and Exists get moved over as well. I think they may stay in Japan.

Re: What is your favorite frog?

Lots of great frogs out there. Not sure what is the "best" but I do like a lot of them. I have fished frogs from Deps, Nories, Spro, Snagproof, Reaction Innovations, Teckel, River2Sea, Evergreen, Jackal,Live target, Imakatsu and Terminator in the last couple years plus a few more I'm sure I'm forget...

My favorite is the Gambler Ace. Really good senko wiggle but slower drop.

Re: Tict ice cube power version ?

Kind of what I’m thinking. It looks like it would be an ultralight that handles 1/64 oz yet still has some power to move fish out of some cover. I’ll put up a quick review after I receive the rod.

Re: Tict ice cube power version ?

Thanks. I’m assuming this would be more powerful that the finesse and drift? It’s rated for PE line but I would most likely run 3.3lb tectan mono.

Tict ice cube power version ?

Do any of you know if the power version of the ice cube comes with a solid tip or tubular tip? Please let me know if any of you have fished this version and have experience with it.
