Re: Forgive me daiwa

Unless I am being paid to be using Shimano or Daiwa exclusively I will continue to buy both! Why limit yourself to just one flavor of ice cream?

Re: G. Loomis MBR 842 GLX

Anything “mag” finesse. I also like it for smaller topwaters like a 1/4 or 3/8 oz popper style bait.

Re: How Do You Keep Your Fishing Closet Organized?

Simple- 20 or so combos on the racks in the garage. 3600 boxes, soft-side cases and big hard boxes all fit on a shelf in the front corner. In spite of all that, I still have stuff strewn all over the garage, on top of the china cabinet, microwave and refrigerator(among other places). I found 4 nib ...

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

I don’t have the MB rod but I do have the NRX 852. Super versatile if you are just needing an “all rounder”. I heard the MB rod is the same in terms of versatility. There probably isn’t a right or wrong option as you picked two really good performing and versatile high end rods. There are a few on h...

Re: How to post for sale??

Just make sure they are halfway meaningful posts spread out over a reasonable amt of time. i've spread my 80 posts out over 6 years . a couple more years and i'll be there! Hit the gas pedal! I am sure you are good. It is the yahoos that show up on a Monday and by Friday they have 50 posts or more.

Re: Kistler He3 vs ALX Zolo

Nice choice! I have rods from both the Zolo B and H3 lines. I think they are very good buys for the money. Both have similar cosmetics. I think they both have good feel as well but feel the taper on the Zolo to be more versatile. For $200-250 give or take sale prices and what not, they are good mid ...

Re: Need some advice: Metanium MGL

1st welcome to TT! Nice choice for a Shimano reel. Lot of options... 1. I would suggest trying it stock. That way when you apply any upgrades you can judge for yourself if there is a difference. 2. You can buy a set of brass gears for it. Many have done this with great success. The stock gears, at l...

Re: Calcutta 200b/gtb

I picked up my Conquest 50 for $165. It has some pix sized marks on it but came complete with reel cover plus box and paperwork. If you can live with some cosmetic wear and tear I am sure you could find one for a good price.

Re: How come other manufacturers don’s use as much salt as Yamamoto

I would think it would be for sink rate, some sort of flavor that would make fish want to hold on longer, and perhaps casting distsnce.

I have no problems with baits with salt other than longevity.

Thanks SS! Rod is due to arrive this Thursday. We have about 6 inches of snow on the ground so it will be a bit before I can use it

Re: Phenix Feather Light

http://i64.tinypic.com/otqmmv.jpg I have that rod with a pixy on it. Its a nice rod for the price, no bells or whistles but id say its similar if not a tag more sensitive than the og tatula line of rods. The light power weighs 3.0oz and it is soft but not too soft. I've casted as light as 1/16oz bu...

Re: Recent builds

Nice work! Thanks for the photos and narrative.

I too have 873 MHX Hi Mod. What started off as a rod for bigger jigs evolved into my frog rod. Paired with an Esxence DC it really shines!
