Re: Megabass rod for swimjigs and frogs?

Daemos can't handle frogs in pads. My ideal swim jig rod and frog rod doesn't really have the same characteristics. If I had to choose one of the rods I've fished I'd say the C40 Mephisto. Otherwise if you don't want to spend much just get the XXPP. Tip is soft enough to run swim jigs on it but very...

Re: Post purple

Bought the reel from Japan as "SLP 6.8 gears and tuned". :lol: I ran my nails across the logo and it seems like a sticker. The reel does have higher speed gears in it but probably just Daiwa 6.8. The line guide and ccc is probably just a PX68 ones. I know SLP once did a paint job and stick...

Re: Javelin as bottom contact rod?

I've used mine for Texas Rig and it did just fine. I like my Trigs to have a softer tip than my Jig rod. It's true the Daemos doesn't have the traditional MB tip, very American rod like, but it's one of my favorite rod regardless. The Javeline is the versatile one of that line and it has enough back...

Re: Post purple

Already gave away the spool. Will try to get a ZPI PG or KTF spool this winter for it.

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

Frogs and weightless senko rods really are a bit apart power wise unless you're fishing mostly moderate to open water frogging. Megabass Frog rods are usually F7 power with F6 doable. Weightless senko rods for MB is usually F4-F5 power. With that said and the length you want I would recommend the Ph...

Re: Ultimate Drop Shot set up

Best is subjective and not everyone has tried all brands and models. It has been nothing but pure pleasure to fish my two DS rods though. I wouldn't trade these two rods for any at the moment. Even if better ones came out I would keep these and just buy the better rod for my 3rd. :lol: Megabass F2.5...

Re: FMJ Vs PIII Bearing down

Just tested my FMJ today quickly on shore. Yes the tip is soft enough for roll cast and skipping. It's a really nice power rod.

Re: FMJ Vs PIII Bearing down

I have both and yes the FMJ has a softer tip to work lures. Even though it is 1 power stronger the tip is more forgiving. I was never a fan of the P3BD. I just felt it was a stiff rod with no tip action. I did like the weight of the rod but didnt like a few things and sold it. Too bad the phase 3 su...

Re: Megabass fmj vs valdiva

Sorry all the lakes I used the FMJ had soft mudd bottoms so never tested sensitivity for FMJ. I'll try to test it once lakes are thawed out. Yes its April 8 and still froze here.

Re: Megabass fmj vs valdiva

Valdiva is 7'6 so it's not a short rod either. I don't have that rod but I do have the FMJ and XXPP. The power is similar but the XXPP has a softer tip. If you want to pitch in tight quarters the FMJ would do handle it nicely. I don't pitch in tight quarters but I use my FMJ on 1/2oz Trig into milfo...

Re: Random pics

PLEASE PLEASE tell me how you like the BE in the Steez Ltd? I was looking for one in such shape as yours appears to be but I settled on the 1010 spool. I think a man should own one BE in his lifetime, they are certainly expensive but I hear they are worth it.. Anyways nothing says limited like a re...
