Steez AGS Drop Shot Rod

Im looking at potentially adding the 7ft ML/F Steez AGS spinning rod as a drop shot rod. For those that have used it, how would it be for a 1/8-3/8oz ds rod? What is it good at/bad at? I do like my ds rods a hair more powerful, which pretty much means no noodles. I am currently running an NRX 822 ds...

Re: Which Loomis or Megabass Rod for 1/2oz spinnerbaits

Megabass flat side. Have one for 1/2oz spinnerbaits and one for 3/8oz bladed jigs. Works like a charm for both

Re: Jig/Frog Rod for Bank Fishing

Zilla for me. Rod loads a little deeper than the PP, so it should hold fish a little better. Ive got two, one for frogs and one for 3/8oz swim jigs, and could not be happier. Zilla? Alpha Angler Zilla. That and the gen 1 XX EMTF are far and away my favorite "utility rods". Not much you cant do with...

Re: Jig Rod Recomendation

For those of you that have the previous generation 7'3 H and are saying it could be too fast, are you using braid or fluoro with it? Or both?

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

TT should do a 1 day contest with users guessing the price. Correct price picks go into a hat and get a prize. Let's look at some numbers, Diawa Retail vs. TW Retail: For the sake of comparison lets assume the exchange rate is $1=100Y and I will ballpark my %. Steez A: 46400 Y vs $499 (+7%) Steez S...

Re: Looking for a MH Spinning Rod w/ Moderate Action...

If you have never ordered a custom rod, I’d highly recommend calling Thorne Brothers in Blaine, Mn and ask to talk to Lonnie. He builds rods for a living instead of a hobby and knows his stuff. He’s also a big time fisherman so if you tell him what you’ll be using it for, he’ll know exactly what bl...

Agreed, most factory spinning rods are in the generic spinning rod power/actions

Wart style baits

With so many companies selling their version of an old wiggle wart now, has the gap closed between todays offerings and the old "hunting action" warts? With products today such as the 6th Sense Curve 55, the Spro Rock Crawler, the Teckel Drunker, etc. do you feel the gap has closed? Are the original...

They are priced at $474 on Digitaka.
Good to know, havent even checked the Japanese sites for them yet. All I heard was the rumor that the USDM price could br around $700 and that made me nervous

Re: Rod for a "Guest" Angler

I let them use my Dobyns rods since the warranties are so good that if they break them, they only pay a small price lol I really like this answer! There are only a couple of people that I would trust with my high end gear. [-o< Agreed, very few if any. Especially considering a lot of my favorite ro...
