Re: Nrx 852c jwr

Personally, I think a 3 power would handle the 3/8 ounce + plastic better. I liked that rod for 1/8-1/4 plus plastic.

Re: Frog Rod

The Dobyns Champ 735c would be a good frog rod. Has a light enough tip where you can toss and work frogs well. Also has enough power in my opinion. Sensitivity won't be as good as the expride, but still enough for me.

Megabass Valdivia or Wild Bunch?

Hey TT, I need a versatile heavy powered rod and was considering between the Megabass Wild Bunch and the Valdivia. Looking to do a little bit of everything with the rod from frogging, pitch/flip, light arig/swimbait and jigs. Not looking to excel at a particular technique, just well rounded enough t...

Re: Antares A Casting Reel

Just picked up one after reading through the posts. Incredible reel to say the least. Currently running 2 brakes with braid. Effortless casting.

Re: MB Destroyer Javelin vs Poison Adrena MH

I think you'll be very happy with the Javelin. I've thrown med/deep cranks, spinnerbaits, big topwaters, bottom contact, and 168 Swavers without issue. Definitely my most versatile rod.

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

From experience, I think you'll be ok with a 4 or 5 power. If you're running braid to leader like me, the 4 power works fine. If fishing straight fluro or mono, the 5 power would be better. Personally I use the Champ Extreme 784, but any of the 7'3 -7'5 models are good to go.

Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

Thanks, that's what I was leaning towards. Care to give your opinion on the 753 in terms of performance?

Performance was great. Threw a bunch of stuff on it from topwater to bottom cotact to 3/8 ounce. Very crisp and light feeling in hand.

Re: Dobyns Xtasy power question

I've fished a buddy's 753c and I think you'll want at least a 4 power if you're going to fish 1/2 ounce in deep water.

Re: Expride 7' light spinning

I've been fishing this rod for the past season and it's been great. Very light and sensitive. Great for 1/4 and under for my tastes and shines with 1/8 - 3/16 ounce weights.
