Heat expands the rattles and body so the bait expands and splits at the seams or splits the paint. I made this mistake last summer and left my box on the deck in the sun for four hours after changing baits. I had seven baits split. Three different manufactures. Thank goodness they weren't customs.
Something about this new material puzzles me. If the CZB material was so difficult to develop and produce, why is there a conversation about making the CZB bushing or bearing substitute available at a cost of $11.00 to fit other main stream reel brands? Now if that talk is just fluff than so be it. ...

I'm always the last to hear about any new anything but was tipped off on Dobyns " D-Blade Advantage " spinner baits at Tackle Warehouse. I am a spinnerbait junkie so I ordered a sampling. Really nice baits over all. The trailer keeper is the best I've seen. The heads have a flat bottom con...
I wouldn't think so at this point. The Champion line is the flagship series. I'm sure that's why it's seen the greatest expansion to the number of models in that series. Dobyns has the actions and balance points dialed. If it isn't broke...don't fix it.
I have no experience with the Megabass but have two DX795's. The balance is fantastic for a rod at this length. The action is not too fast and is braid friendly. There is more than ample power to punch with heavier weights. I pitch with 1/4 oz. plastics with them too. It's a great stick.

I also picked up an SS SV on sale. It's been spooled with 12 Invizex and casts a 1/8 Bitzy Bug Jig a respectable distance. I understand the noise issue. My SV103 is quieter. May be it's the frame material. I like the reel very much regardless. A Steez is on my wish list, new or pre owned.
I have the pre HP 784ML. The rod serves triple duty. Football jigs, exposed hook lighter swimbaits and lighter texas rigs pitched. All are fished on fluorocarbon. Sensitivity is very very good. I think a lot of it has to do with the balance of the rod. For a 7'8'' rod, it's pretty neutral with a Lew...
