Re: Jig Rod Recomendation

Thanks for all the help and recommendations guys I really appreciate all the feed back/input: I fish with 30lb braid to a 20lb fluoro leader most of the time because I'm targeting structure and in a tournament situation I don't have time to re-tie and don't want to risk breaking off a fish. I am a ...

Re: Jig Rod Recomendation

Go to jig rod is still the Dobyns DX744. That is number one. My number 2 is the Edge Black Widow 704.

Just like everyone said: 7' or longer, I consider both of those MH action with a FAST tip. I only use Flouro if I am fishing a jig.

Flipping is a whole different deal down here.

Re: Fishing ole classics

Curado and Chronarch E series and the older Zillions are my favorites.

Re: Is Fenwick's New Flagship Fantasia a quality rod?

Are you referring to their world class or the Abu Garcia Fanstasista?

Re: Looking to upgrade gears in a PIXY Liberto

You still got that thing huh? Yes sir I do. I mean it doesn't get much use due to the speed, but I think if I put faster gears in it, it will be a Ned Rig Beast! I am all about using baitcasters where I can. I want a Senko rig too, so don't know which way I will go. Honestly, they just don't make r...

Looking to upgrade gears in a PIXY Liberto

Who would carry them? Wanting to go up to a high speed reel to use for a Ned variant type bait or wacky worm. I currently use my PX-R for my ned rig, so can I use the same gearing in the liberto? If so, I know tackletrap sells that, but I wanted to be sure before ordering.

G-Rod Pro Bass Experience?

I know TT did the review, but I wanted to know what the end users think of the graphene technology? Is it worth the hype or just another dud? How does the sensitivity compare to some of the heavy hitters? I have some money and may buy a new rod. I have been looking at G-rods for a bit, but I may sav...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

I would like one of these myself, but I will have to be patient. I like the idea of the solid feel for my cranks. Shimano is definitely bringing their A game with some of the newer releases.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I think I would like to try one of these some day. I mean sensitivity is a relative term in my eyes. I have fished custom rods with K2 blanks and did find them very sensitive, but not that much more than lets say a Dobyns DX. I prefer some backbone and strength with my rods which Shimano seemed to d...

Re: What rods do you thinks we'll see debut at the Classic?

Do we think Shimano will bring the Ultima over? Wouldn't that take away from the Conquest? They are describing it as their most advanced rod ever, so why bring over competition to challenge it within their own organization? That would be like Chevy making a car to compete against the Vette.

Re: Abu Garcia Revo Ike

My guess is $199 on the casting reel based on the STX frame with a carbon handle and bushings in the knobs to reduce the elusive bearing count.

PLEASE do not put the ALX braking system in that piece. That alone makes the reel drop by $100 as it is the worst braking system I have ever used.

Re: Abu Gen4 Revo Premier

My partner has one. It is a pretty nice reel. It feels solid (more solid than the Team Lew's anyway). It fishes similar to the Revo Rocket but it is noticeably lighter. The gears feel smoother too. I fished it a couple of times and would buy one at the right price (just not MSRP ha ha).

Re: Tat SV TW or Curado K?

I got the Curado K and my partner has the SV Tatula.

I really like the Tatula platform and would never say anything bad about it. That said, the curado is better for cranking or moving baits. The SV kills it though on pitching or flipping. Take that for what it is worth. Both are solid, solid reels.

Re: Bass Pro Patriot Rods

I would like more information on who is rolling their blanks. As far as I know, Purefishing does not have any US factories making rod blanks (I obviously could be wrong).

That said, the rod clearly states made in America, so I would like to know exactly where.

Re: Chatterbait rod

I am currently using a St. Croix Rage 7'6" MH Moderate for my chatterbait and so far so good.

I would like to upgrade this year to maybe a Dobyns 734 or 744.
