Re: Cranking Reel

I use the Zillion TWS 6.3 for the Fat Free Shad, 6XD, not so much for the 8XD or 10XD. The 6.3 is great for a medium diver.

Re: Cranking Reel

When I do deep cranking, I prefer the Shimano Antares 5.4 or the JDM Zillion TW 1516 5.5

Re: tatula ct noise

I have a Tat Sv that has a "rattle" when ripping a trap or chatterbait, sounds like it's coming from the inductor. Going to swap the palm plate brg and see what happens. A jig or worm it's fine, only happens with a vibrating bait. :-k

Welcome =D> Check with the Tackle Trap, they may have a MB XX rod available. They were on sale. The best jig rod is the one you feel comfy with.

Re: Bantam MGL reviews?

I have 2, they fish just fine. With the advancements in plastic, polymer, carbon fiber, etc. I'm not concerned about a plastic pawl. If it breaks "I got a guy" ;)

Smooth casting, good distance, and a very solid feel with a fish on. :big grin:
