Re: Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

What size Senko sir ? 5" I have a F2.5 XXX Black Themis and while I know the power-levels are not super consistent across different lines, I am thinking/hoping the F3.5 Addermine should have the power needed for them. I throw 5” weightless senkos on my Addermine with 8lb test Tatsu, no problem...

Re: Tatula SV casting distance.

No complaints on casting distance with my Tat SV or my Zillion TW SVs. They all have aftermarket properly lubed spool bearings installed and I’m happy. I expected and appreciate the control they provide, and still get the distance I need. What type of bearings? Tat SV has HH ZR bearings, and was su...

+1 for the Addermine, it’s a fantastic rod, versatile, not to mention a work of art!

Congrats and enjoy, it’s a really awesome stick. I predict it won’t be your last Helium 3.

Re: Kistler Helium3 vs Megabass Orochi vs St Croix LTB

If you’re throwing mostly chunk trailers on 1/4 & 1/2oz jigs you can easily get away with the LMH-F H3 Kistler. I’d stay away from trailers like Mag Rage Structure Bugs as those weigh almost 1/2oz by themselves and would put you just over the 7/8oz max recommended lure weight. I don’t like my M...

Re: Kistler Helium3 vs Megabass Orochi vs St Croix LTB

I have the Gen1Tour Versatile, I have a H3 MH/XF and LMH/F, and a LTB MHF as well as M/XF. That 1/2 oz jig to me is the problem with one rod for that range of baits. The original TV is a heavy powered rod, too heavy for anything on your list but the 3/8 oz or 1/2 jigs, unless your chucking 1/2-1 oz ...

Re: JDM Tatula SV TW

Slap some HH ZR bearings in the Tatula SV when it arrives to really open it up. After a tuning by Bryan and putting in the ZRs mine bombs 1/4 oz cranks on a gen 1 Orochi XX Flatside Special with great control.

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Need a little clarification. Are these the same reels, with the "domestic" version available only in 6.3.1 and 7.3.1, and the "JDM" version available in the same ratios plus 5.5.1 and 9.1.1: It appears they are. I used the 7.3.1 version last weekend at Clear Lake, via the Tackle...

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Another great thing about the Zillion SV TW is that if you order JDM online you can get a lefty in a 5.x gear ratio! Then if you need more line capacity you can easily swap in an RCS 1016 or other deeper spool option.

Re: Levante Spinnerbait Special, Super Orochi XXX?

Great score, love that rod for square bills! At that price it’s a killer deal. Now can I justify adding the Ronin to my already full rod rack?

Go check out the Tackle Trap, they just got some of the original Orochi XX rods back in stock including the Dropshot Rod and Stinger Shot for 189.

Re: Spining Rod Opinions

I hope I can help a bit. I have a St Croix Legend Xtreme 6’8” M/XF as well as a St Croix Avid 6’6” M/F, and I have the MB Destroyer Addermine. I totally understand why Gary is recommending it so highly, it’s just a bada$$ spinning rod performance wise and handles really nicely. I’d say it’s a bit le...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

One of the reasons the rods now have the Spiral Architect Reel Seat instead of the previous seat is that in many cases when you are palming a reel like so many do you actually have less contact with the rod itself and you are actually feeling "reel sensitivity" and not maintaining as much...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Definitely looks like a step up in the design/aesthetics department, and like the upgraded guides for sure. I am ok with the reel seat but do prefer the Fuji ECS. I was hoping for a bit more powerful all graphite cranking stick in the 7’3” range, like a big brother to the Flatside Special for mid to...
