Re: Megabass Cyclone advantage

I have one and love it. I use it mostly for jerkbaits and topwater, but have also enjoyed it for 3/8oz squarebills. Very sensitive as well!

Re: Conquest 842S or Megabass Addermine

My vote is for the addermine as it will do any finesse technique really well. In my experience it is a very sensitive rod that is close to the NRX IMO. What sets it apart is the handle ergonomics - while ever so slightly less sensitive than the NRX, the ergonomics make the rod far more enjoyable to ...

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: 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: Evergreen Inspirare RS rods

Thanks for the info on the egoist! Sounds like it would be good for power. Do you think it has the guts to pull 1/2oz spinnerbaits or 1/2 swim jigs with trailer through the weeds? Im just thinking versatility here, maybe this rod can do more than just bottom contact. I do have a MB diablo fastmove ...

Re: Evergreen Inspirare RS rods

Hi jmb27 - how do you like that EG egoist ? I am thinking about acquiring one of these and wanted to know if it is any good at bottom contact, jigs and t-rigs in the 3/16 to 3/8oz range? I would also want it for many other techniques as well. Is it really a "heavy" as stated in the specs ...

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: Evoluzion super diablo

This rod is a tuning fork. It has the real "IT" that the megabass rods of old have. It feels very much like my original Diablo seems like it's the XTI/ XFTI rod that was never released and blends in to that series very well. It can do anything , and do it well. A 9lber on a chatterbait. I...

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.
