Re: More Parabolic Punch Rod

I posted about this rod in punching thread but deserves to be mentioned again here if you’re still looking or want another. New zbone 76 heavy MOD. Parabolic, ultra sensitive, and just addicting when you pick it up and starting flipping, punching what have you. Best rod I’ve ever used for those app...

Re: hedgehog Air Bfs bearings

They come with Alchemy Oil in them. Using a drop of the low viscosity Alchemy Oil every so often is recommended. Thats what I do.

I dont want to say under rated but, the OG Tatula rods dont seem to get the love they deserve.

2019 Skipping Preference

What is your preference of gear for skipping baits? his has been discussed in the past. In the past few years, the tried and true braking systems of the major reel manufacturers have got a major facelift. Daiwa's SV, Shimano's SVS Infinity and new DC iterations to name a few. When listing your skipp...

Re: Replacing a reel seat

I would use the fiberglass mesh self-adhesive drywall tape. It works excellent, holds itself in place better and is porous. The epoxy gets all around it and still leaves plenty of blank surface area to bond to, as well. Not to mention, its not adversely affected by water like masking tape is. X2!!!...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Of the current rods the E6X, in my hands, is no better than the current list of $100 rods. In the $100 list the SLX feels much better than the Exage or the BassX, to me. The top end St. Croix I like but not a fan of the lower end. Liked the Shimano Crucial not the Clarus. So I guess for me it is no...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Steez Compile X for sure. Dead in my hands. St. Croix Mojo and Rage. Hated the way they fished. Agreed. I wanted to love that rod so much but couldn't. The Steez AGS rods are a HUGE improvement in my hands. I don't want to brand bash, but there have been some good points made on this thread already...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

TW says that the reel can hold 100 yards of 10 pound line . Does that seem to be accurate? Any thoughts? That's tackle warehouse propaganda, designed to hoodwink the american buyer who still believes more line=more better. 100 yards generally bieng the lowest threshold. The 100/10 contention doesnt...

Re: What’s a good rod for spinnerbaits?

Length is widely accepted to be less than 7ft. Where it begins to split is when people talk about action. Some prefer a really fast rod. Some prefer a mod-fast. Personally, I feel the rod choice should make sense with the line used. If using FC, a faster rod could be used. If braid, mod fast to help...
