ill second the 6'10 med expride it is a great feeling jerkbait rod and pretty good at many things in the lighter side of the spectrum.
yeah i sold all of my 2017 us destroyers and i miss the fmj that one is a great rod if you add it i know you will like that rod. its hard not to when fishing jigs and plastics loved it so much for that.
i have 6 of the new model legend elite and love them i have or had all the nrx and glx models at some point and also am a big fan of these. the glx hurt my hand a bit for long fishing periods so i tried the st croix legend elite and fell in love. really is a nice crisp get the job done rod for me. i...

i have two of the javelin rods and i do throw bottom contact on them with not problem.

The orochi xx 2018 model diablo spec r is also a great swim jig rod with a good tip for skipping as well if your in that situation. a step up is the 2017 U.S destroyer dameos which is great as well. If you are in sparse cover the jav...

I like the old platforms made in Japan a lot so every so often I’ll buy older reels I just ordered a d7 from ttt. I’m also afraid of spiders all the new Daiwa have them crawling all over them
