Corto or Finezza Help

Hi - I am thinking about getting into UL and based on what I've learned here I thought the Corto 18 or Finezza 17 rods might be a good start. Having a hard time finding them online though so if anyone could let me where I could find one it would be greatly appreciated. Thanks in advance

Z Bone vs NRX

I'm looking to add a med-light casting rod this winter for throwing 1/8-3/16 oz jigs; maybe 4" senkos. Picked up a couple of z-bones last year and was pretty pleased so was thinking about a custom z-bone or the NRX 802c. I picked up a 802 when they first came out and wasn't too impressed with the qu...

Edge Rods

Does anyone know what's going on with Edge rods? I bought a couple when they were first introduced and while they don't have the bling of other rods I have, its a great blank and I like the graphite handles. On Black Friday I put an order in knowing it would take a while and while they were good eno...

Edge Rods

Edge Rods is having a pretty decent sale going on now and I was thinking about picking up a couple. I have a couple of their older rods (MH casting spiral wrapped and drop shot rods) and I think they're great but I see very little about them on the forum. Is there anything going on with the company ...

NRX 852C Uses

So I couldn't help myself when I saw a ridiculous price on a new NRX 852C and picked it up. I already have plenty of other rods to cover pretty much everything I throw (MB Expada and Cliffhanger for light topwater, Super Eiger for most light applications, NRX 893 and Edge 705 for jigs and senkos, MB...

Damaged MB Simoon Reel Seat

I'm not sure if this is the right forum for this but thought I'd give it a shot. I have a Simoon spinning rod where the small plastic fore grip above the reel seat has come loose. I am thinking that a slow curing epoxy should be used to repair it but thought I'd reach out for help before potentially...

Re: NRX 893C

Great deal on the X7 EM and Gary's the best; I'd listen to him. Every recommendation he's given me has been dead on

Re: Suggested line for Jerkbaits

Have only used Defier on both of my jerkbait rods without any problems; great stuff. But will try tatsu in the spring based on what I've read here

Re: New dropshot rod: who's got the best?

I also have a Edge Finesse 6100 which is a great light drop shot rod and couldn't agree more about the balance and build quality. Not sure where you can buy one unless you pick up the NFC blank and have it built

Re: Help me decide rod for 1/16 + minnow grub

I've had the Gloom SJR 721 and have the SJR 720 (which I may be selling) and both are excellent real fun to fish rods; not whippy at all like the TSR rods (IMO). I would think that the 720 would be a better choice for the 1/16 oz jigs you are looking to use. I was thinking that the Gloom smallmouth ...
