Re: 2019 Megabass Levante issues?

There might be some truth to that. I was checking The Hook Up this morning and noticed that ALL of the Levante were down to zero. Thought maybe it was an error on their site, but have since checked and all models are still at zero stock. Then checked Tackle Warehouse and it's the same way, except th...

Re: dippin' my toes in the BFS world

With that rod I would go with braid. You're liable to spool that reel tossing the baits that rod is designed for with the appropriate diameter fluoro. I have the MS-X 69M/BF and I use an SV105 with it. Funny enough I just took an SV105 off the rod in exchange for the Air. Based on your experience w...

Re: Hedgehog & Megabass purple

Thanks for the heads up. Have a spare SV105 and thinking about throwing a couple of purple parts on there to match with the Levante. Nothing overboard, just a couple highlights like knob caps and handle nut & retainer.

Re: dippin' my toes in the BFS world

I guess I could have mentioned that, but that's why I included the rods specs. I was hoping to get some recommendations based on that info. I'll moslyt be throwing topwater, small jerkbaits, and shallow cranks.

dippin' my toes in the BFS world

Hedgehog & Megabass purple

Thinking about picking up one of the 4 piece Levante rods and was curious as to how the purple highlights match up with Hedgehog Studios components. Is it closer to their royal or deep purple parts?

Re: JDM Levante

I didn’t see your thread earlier. If you read my above post you will know the rod doesn’t fit my grip. Other than that it goes together very nicely. Has small white alignment dots to help line it up. It’s put together very well and is a great option for putting under your seat in the car. Wacky Senk...

Re: JDM Levante

Interested to hear about the shortcomings as well. Especially since I mentioned this exact model in a previous post.

There’s also this entire series of travel rods coming from MB fairly soon. Little more expensive than levante; but not outrageous: https://jp.megabassstore.jp/fs/megabass/c/rod-triza-all
Thanks for the heads up! That 66 model is perfect for what I have in mind.

Levante Multi Piece rods

Does anybody have any info or possibly hands on experience with any of the new multi piece rods from the Levante series? Have my eye on the F3-67LV. Thinking about a travel rod to keep in the car so I can make a few casts on my lunch break.

Re: JerryC : Feedback Request Topic

Stand up guy as usual. Great communication during the transaction and fast shipping. Just ordered two PopX's from him and the packaging was better than what you'd get from some retailers.

Re: Attn: Megabass Lure Guys

The Hookup is pretty legit. They have their own Megabass shop within the store. Mikesrx is also a good choice, somewhat hit or miss on inventory, but tends to have some of the JP offerings that most others don't have. Both have prompt shipping.

Re: Gan Craft Jointed Claw - is it worth it / colors

Gotta agree with Cal. I’m not swimbait enthusiast by any means, but both are entirely different. Splurge a little bit and go with Gan Craft. The attention to detail is top notch as is expected with most JDM lures. Also, it looks as though they will be releasing a smaller mode soon. The 128 if I’m no...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : Biovex USA Joint Zari 65

Is it weighted near the line tie to allow the defensive posture in the water?
