I have a SV103 paired with my XXPP. They are hard to beat for the money. There has been some for sale in the classifieds lately.
Megabass Orochi F5-70DG Advantage Type River Slant Bridge is a very nice swimjig rod. Nice combination of power and taper. I am thinking of picking up a Steez STZ721MHRB-AGS to try. I like the stiff jdm regular taper more than an US fast taper for swimjigs.

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...
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...
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...

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...
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...
I really don't like to build reels. Cost too much and waiting for parts sucks.

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...
