Re: Is there a better deep jerkbait than the staysee 90

Maybe the new Vision 110 +2? I do like the Shadow Rap Deep. Too many northerns around here to throw a 110 all the time.

Re: Tenkera Fishing Rod

They work pretty good in the Driftless Area where it's all small spring creeks. Casts are rarely further than 20 feet. The telescoping action makes a pretty good backpacking rod.

I know the owner of Badger Tenkara and he's a good guy.

Re: Daiwa RCS knobs

I also put RCS knobs on my Steez A. The paddles are just uncomfortable. Digitaka sent me a promo code in the fall for 20,000 yen which made it an almost free upgrade.

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

The reel came in the mail today and all I can say is wow. It's the smoothest reel I have ever used.

I will need to see which one it bal...

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

I was refunded. Fantastic, I know quite a few guys who were ultimately refunded. Glad to hear that... we try hard! It seemed legit as he said he had a guide business and sent an invoice from a tackle shop. The invoice from the tackle shop was misspelled though. I was the one screaming for you guys ...

What does someone pay to get a reel shipped to the states with the service? $30?

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

There’s been a ton of fake Loomis rods being posted lately. Seems like all of a sudden it’s blown up in the last month or so. A bunch of guys got scammed on another site when new NRX’s were posted for $200. Be smart people! I saw, locked, and ultimately deleted that thread over there. Folks thinkin...

Re: Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting the addermine but was curious how you guys hold your rods and reels. I hold mine right handed with the reel foot between my middle finger and ring finger. Two fingers in front. Two behind. It seems like the handle design favors more fingers in front of the reel....

Are the spool bearings 3X10X4 like the Steez A and SV TW? I have an extra set of ZPIs.

Re: Megabass Destroyer Javelin?

Javelin would be a 893.7 IMO :lol: but with a med fast taper unlike the NRX. Yes it is a versatile rod that can do Texas rig, senkos, chatterbaits, and deep diving 1oz cranks. I use mine mostly for launching swim jigs and chatterbaits to cover water. Tried some Arashi 18ft divers and handles it fin...
