12 oz. sounds a bit much, these new blanks are supposed to be really nice.
It is a lot of money to spend on an experiment. "choose well grasshopper" :big grin:

Re: Guide Size - Orochi XX vs Helium 3

Did a quick check. The XX A-Mart Flip 6.9 3.2 2.0 2.0 for the rest. The Helium 3 7-3 Hvy 4.7 3.2 2.6 for the rest.
The running guides for the H3 are bit larger.

Re: Bait Monkey is F***ing Me Over!!! HELP ME!

Yup, just save up and get the one you really "gotta have" . If it's the Conquest you want, you will never be free of "The Monkey"

Re: TD Zillion Type R & Phenix UMBX

Re: New Flipping Rod??

Both are very good looking rods. The fit and finish on both is very good. The DX746 weighs in at 5.96 oz. The A-Mart comes in at 5.51 oz. Surprised that the 7-9 weighs a bit less than the 7-4. The Dobyns uses 3 double foot guides, the A-Mart uses 2. The A-Mart has the edge in the sensitivity dept. [...
