Re: Dobyns xtasy or kistler zbone

I have a 755 Xtasy and a 7-6 LE-5 Z-Bone, 2019. While i like the full cork and balance of the Xtasy, if I'm going to throw a 10 or 12 in worm I will always pick up the Z-Bone, it's got that "electric" feel. Not that the Xtasy is a slouch, I guess I just expected a little more. Going to give the Xta...

Re: Steez XBD SVF Discontinued?

Quick (a bit unrelated question) here since it is about the same rods. I am looking for a heavy Jig rod (3/4oz - 1.5 oz). I have used the XBD Frog rod for a while here, since I did not have anything else but was not super happy with the sensitivity of it. Now I am strongly considering the Steez AGS...

Re: Taking spooled reels on flights...

Years ago I read that taking reels that were spooled with line was a no-no for most airlines. Is this still a thing? Planning to take some gear with me on my next vacation and would strongly prefer not to check my reels and want to make sure I don't have any issues carrying stuff on. True, spooled ...

Re: Part of the club now

Only got to try a 1016 spool today with 8lb big game. Was throwing a weightless fluke (bubblegum of course) and could only throw out with brakes maxed out and spool tension to where the fluke would only move if I flicked the rod. Got surprisingly good distance also considering it was quite windy. I...

Re: thinking of a new bottom contact rod

You have two really good rods! The NRX 894 would be another choice. Good luck in your search!

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

JDM Zillion HD 1520.jpg[/attachment [attachment=0]JDM Zillion HD 1520.3.jpg How does that monster plam? Like an older Tatula without the mag dial rubbing on your finger? I could go for that. I want a "1516" spool reel to play around with those sized spools. Don't have an older Tat to compare, but i...

Re: Shimano conquest 903c?

Thank you everyone, I might have to pass on it cause I really need a rod that can handle a 110 whopper plopper. I don’t throw a lot of chatterbaits as I’ve had terrible luck with them. Not sure if I’m really looking for a rod of this length. I always wanted an 893 nrx but I now have 894, 853, 852 s...
