Re: A Lesson Worth Sharing

Reels can be shipped for a reasonable cost. Rods do tend to cost a bit more to ship just due to the length and materials needed (PVC offers the best protection). I too condensed my lineup recently. I accepted the fact that I’d be taking a cash loss in exchange for gaining combos that I would enjoy u...

Kayak Box

What, in y’all’s opinion, is the best “box” for kayak fishing? I want one that offers ample storage in combination with the ability to hold up to 5 combos. Any suggestions are greatly appreciated!

Re: New kayaks!!

NRS Chinook is super comfortable and has a high back that won’t interfere with the seat at all. Good front storage for tools as well.

Re: Foregrip or no foregrip?

I dread the threads. If I see them on a rod I’m out. Foregrip minimal at most, and only to cover threads. I too like touching the blank for bottom contact lures.

Re: Shorter rods and kayak fishing

I’ve done both, 7’2” is now my preferred length. I fish mostly small lakes though out of a 13.5 foot yak. If I were to fish more rivers I would shorten to 6’8-7’ to help avoid overhanging branches and snags. Personal preference in my opinion but there are advantages of shorter rods in some situation...

Re: Daiwa Kage

What’s the balance point with a reel and without a reel? Does it feel like it wants to be neutral, slightly tip up or tip down?

Re: Looking for a Frogging Rod

I love the 1st gen Orochi XX Perfect Pitch for frogs. May have already been mentioned here but the tip is excellent and there’s plenty of power to spare to drive hooks home and horse quality fish to the boat, kayak, or bank.

Re: Megabass Orochi Aklys OR Destroyer Warhammer

Saw this topic and had a question similar so I thought I’d ask it here—Between the Aklys and Leviathan, which one would offer the most versatility? Primary use would be flip/punch heavy cover, but would one be better suited to small glide bait/swim bait duties?

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

I got a chance to handle the new rods at the Classic Expo. I was thoroughly impressed. Now after hearing the purpose and attention to detail behind the series, I am blown away. Megabass, in my opinion, leads the way in presenting a product that is not only a tool used to accomplish a task, but an in...
