Re: Megabass levante

I was wondering if they’d update the Levante line and actually make them worthwhile. I was skeptical, but now I’m kind of excited! Can’t wait to get a peek at their design.

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Got a gen 2 Perfect Pitch yesterday and though I haven’t had it on the water yet, it’s a different stick. I’m a bit surprised by how less powerful it feels, and how deeper the tip flexes compared to the original. I definitely understand the difference in lure ratings now. The usual quality and craft...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

I don’t see the light green in 30lb?

Also, can you link the Paulus site?

Thanks for doing these tests, have you done Sunline SX1?

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

So if you're looking for a line that is as thick as most 20 lbs braid, I suggest you give the 30 lbs Xplasma a try since the 18 lbs is as thin as most 10 lbs braid. Xplasma Asegai is similar to fused fireline 8 ultra. So if you are not a fan of stiff and wiry line, you might not like it. Personally...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

Thanks for that info. The size is interesting, as that’s actually between most brands 20-30lb sizes. I was thinking about trying some of the light green but wanted 30lb. Looks like they only make it up to 18lb, but if the diameter is bigger than stated I might try it.

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

The Orochi XX Perfect Pitch is the rod I’d choose, though I can’t speak for the current version yet. I’m assuming the new generation is at least somewhat similar. Or you could try to find a used gen one. It should handle weightless senkos and all of the topwater lures you mentioned. It’s a beast of ...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

Good to know! Might have to try this one.

And yeah, I could get the TX1 and PEx8 to fray just by looking at them wrong.

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

It’s not like the TX and PEx8 at all? Those lines frayed so easily.

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

Anybody able to compare the power and actions of the new models to the originals? And how is the power and balance on the Braillist?

Re: Best Jig Rod for $200

I recommend the gen 1 Orochi XX Jig and worm. It's not the lightest rod, but it's still plenty sensitive and has power to spare. Lots of people don't like this rod, but it's underrated in my opinion. The Zodias I've had in the past were plenty nice and the Curado rods seem decent, though I only trie...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

Each year there's less and less I'm excited about, which is good for my bank account! But there's so much of the same thing, or a new variant of something that already exists. Lots of marketing and hype, it's disappointing. Personally, I'm not liking the direction a lot of companies are going with g...

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Between the cheap nut cover and the spider graphic on the side, no thanks. No reason they couldn't put a nicer aluminum nut lock on there, even the cheap sub-100 dollar reels have it. How many Tatula variations have come out since they debuted, what, 4 or 5 years ago?? I'm assuming the SV version wi...

Maxscent Creature Hawg

Picked up a pack in South Africa Special color, and after a few casts I noticed the color started to fade to a milky grey on the outside and the texture changed. Kinda like if you stay in the bath or pool too long. But this was only after 3-5 casts or pitches. It didn’t seem to catch more fish than ...
