Re: Ordering from Japan... Metanium MGL???

I would personally go with JapanLureShop. I ordered a Met Mgl on Mon June4 and it arrived Fri June8 in the morning, Japan to Canada. On top of the quick delivery, they included a FREE Megabass Vision 110 jerkbait as a gift \:D/ Note that the Met Mgl is overbraked vs the 13 Metanium in my opinion, b...

Re: What is the ultimate 1/2oz Jig combo?

For me, it would be:

Rod: Daiwa steez racing design 7011 HRB , OR Megabass destroyer FMJ

Reel: Daiwa Steez SV TW 8.1:1, or Steez A - Equipped with ZPi NRC001PG spool

Line: 18-20lb Seaguar Tatsu, either straigh floro or 50lb YGK WX8 ultra jigman braid to 20lb Tatsu leader.

Re: 16 Destroyer JDM v. 17 USA Destroyer

The texture or ribbing of the unfished blank on my faust and super destroyer both (16JDM) are the same. The texture of my FMJ (17USA) is noticeably different than the jdm models. I feel like my super destroyer is more sensitive than my FMJ. My best guess is they are using different graphite. They s...

Re: Rod similar to NRX 901s

If budget isnt much concern, Take a good look at the Daiwa Steez AGS 76MMLFSA (7-6” M/ML). I think this rod would be a little more powerful than the 901S though. I have this steez rod and absolutely love it. It excels at many finesse applications from its relatively light tip, but has lots of power ...

Re: Debating between a couple frog rods

Another stick to consider is the Shimano expride 173XH. For the price this rod is fantastic and a top notch frog stick. In the expride series this particular model stands out.

The cork looks good in the pics. Looks like MB made improvements in this area compared to the previous gen.

Re: Do Expride rods have a high rate of breakage?

I can never understand why guys aggressively boat flip fish over a certain size. In most instances we are fishing for the enjoyment and not in a tournament time crunch where wasting 10 seconds to either net or hand lift the fish into the boat will cost us money. It simply amazes me when i see guys j...

Re: QUESTION: Daiwa Tatula/Zillion TWS -> Braid -> Fluoro Topshot

Using an 'FG' knot will solve this issue. Taking time to practice this knot will save you headaches in the union knot hitting the TWS line guide. I can use longer leaders, that go into the reel.

Re: What rods do you thinks we'll see debut at the Classic?

Do we think Shimano will bring the Ultima over? Wouldn't that take away from the Conquest? They are describing it as their most advanced rod ever, so why bring over competition to challenge it within their own organization? That would be like Chevy making a car to compete against the Vette. I doubt...
