Re: Advice for a 1/2oz jig rod and some long-winded musings.

Over the past 10 years or so on TT, I think "the best 1/2oz jig rod" might be one of the most asked about, debated & uncertain of all the topics in the rod subforum. :lol: My rule of thumb for jigs is 'double it'. If using a 1/4oz jig, get a rod thats good with 1/2oz. For a 1/2oz jig,...

Re: Daiwa Millionaire S

I had one and it performed quite well for big baits. Not as refined or feature laden as more expensive options but it definitely did a fine job. Maybe look at the New Millionaire Classic UTD as well

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I can definitely see some cosmetic similarities to the xxx, but since I like the look of the xxx I don't mind that at all. I'm not going to form any opinions until the rods are in people's (my) hands, but I can see where the skeptics are coming from. As far as the reel seat goes, it was pretty obvio...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

So, retailers are dropping the price on the Levante series. Discontinuing them or introducing new versions? Could we be seeing TWO new series from MB this year? Or has the floor of the new XX lineup been lowered to compete in the 200-250 demographic? Personally, I hope it’s all true!!!! :D Strictly...

Here is a 3/8oz 4/0 he did for me. $8.99 shipped for 10 seems fair to me

Re: Quality Lead/Tungsten BALL Jigheads

I've been buying some lead ball jigs and other things off a eBay seller named toadzilla14, or "Hazies Dazie Lures" on Facebook. He doesn't have a ton of configurations listed but has been able to fulfill my special requests without issue. I think his standard hooks are mustad but I wouldn'...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I can however say we have a new frog built for the US market that will be dropping soon. Larger sized built around a killer hook. I have worn out my prototypes....LOL Well you can at least post a pic of one of these worn out prototypes...right? :D Speaking of frogs, I'm in the market for a new frog...

Decided to pull the FX68R off the FMJ and replace it with a new Tatula SV outfitted with a RCS carbon handle and SLP knobs. I think the neon green really pops. Now for tuning and Bocas...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Just speculation, but I bet one of the tweaks to the new xx rods is changing the reel seat to the style found on the new destroyers and xxx series. I could be wrong though of course

Re: Spro's New Dean Rojas Bronzeye Spit Shad

Cal, thanks for another great review! I myself have done rather well on the spit shad. I'm curious about your rod choice in using the Diablo Spec R. Did you feel it worked well with the spit shad? I have the same rod, and while I do feel it's quite versatile, I never would've thought to use it for e...
