Re: Got my Xray blanks.. Weights

I think Fuji Titanium Alconites are the best bang for your buck. Got any better close up pictures of those blanks :big grin:

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

X2 Heavy power is all have experience with in the adrena line. But like a noodle in my hands compared to similarly rated megabass. Thinking back the g-ax may have been one kind of comparable, but stiffer nonetheless. Always find it interesting that we can feel rods differently. That's why you have ...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Its spot on when compared to shimano rods, but i wouldn't say that megabass rods of the same power are as stiff, at least not the ones i've used or currently own. I don't find the Adrena stiff at all. It's very reminiscent of Point Blank X2 Heavy power is all have experience with in the adrena line...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Thanks I'll probably end up getting 2 piece medium power. Now I need to figure out what reel to pair it with :) The nice thing about the 18 model is that Shimano ditched all the red highlights, so just about any reel will look good on it. It's a very stealth, under stated rod. lol the red accents a...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

have the gen 1 2pc medium in 6.10. Its great and sensitive, but feels more like a medium heavy than a medium. A bit too stiff for my taste. I think it's pretty spot on power wise, in contrast to most JDM rods. If I had to guess, I'd say it's somewhere between 375 and 400 grams of power. Its spot on...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Your thoughts? Worth it? I'm looking at their two piece medium light and medium casting rods. I have a two piece BFS zodias and was wondering if adrena is a worthy upgrade. Any other suggestions for two piece casting rods in that power rating? Here in Canada we pretty much have nothing that's two p...

Re: 18 Poison Adrena jdm worth it?

Strange timing. I literally just recieved mine in the mail today from JPangler. I got the 2 piece 6'10 medium. Worthy upgrade from the Zodias - every day of the week. I also have / had 1st gens. I like this one better and I haven't even fished it yet. It's lighter and I feel confident saying it will...

Mine was sinking as well even though it was supposed to be suspending. I got rid of it, never liked it.

Same. Sank too fast, much more so than "slow sink"
