Re: Recommend me a spinning reel

The Revros is a great looking reel too. It's definitely on the list.

Recommend me a spinning reel

Ok, allow me to preface this by saying I am not interested in a Shimano as this is on my creek wading rod. I am looking for a $50-100 spinning reel to go on my St. Croix Eyecon 6'3" MXF with 15/4 PP S8S. My old reel was a Lew's SG300 that was $50 new. I used it for 8 years. I just got a Lew's Mach M...

If I am not mistaken, the Speed Slide is supposed to have a wider side to side walking pattern compared to the Quick Walker. I have both and have a hard time telling the difference myself haha
I was thinking the same thing. They're really nice baits and I love tossing them.

Dog X Quick Walker vs Speed Slide

Simply put, what's the difference? I have 1 SS and 3 QW. They both fish very similarly and I can't really tell the difference. I'm just curious here. Pic is of 2 Quick Walkers, just a picture of two of my baits.

Re: Store brand rods and reels

May I ask why you think inexpensive or store brand tackle isn't the target of this site? I'm not an owner and I don't want to put you on the spot, just wondering. Many on here fall under the enthusiast label. It seems that most on here do not appreciate anything that isn't Daiwa or Shimano. That's ...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

I have a quick question fellas. I've got a major jones for the DS and was wondering, in my situation, what would you recommend? From my 'yak, I float some skinny, gnarly places where a 6'6" stick is almost too long, but then I also fish some open lakes and ponds. I'm wanting to fish these in a kayak...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

First time out with these, I caught two on my first two casts. They seem to try and swallow these quickly, making hooksets easy to make. I was using the 3", 1/2oz in hanahaze. First flip was against a tree in a little feeder of a park lake and I skittered it away about 4 feet. Whilst sinking, it got...

Store brand rods and reels

I know it isn't the target of this site, but what are some store brand rods and reels you find to be passable to total steals? For me, it's the H2O Mettle reels and Ethos HD casting rods. My creek setups consist of Mettle MT2 reels on older Lightning Rod pistol grip 5.5' rods. I can drop a jig, cran...

Megabass Griffon Zero/V4 buzzbait

Hey, just picked up a Griffon Zero from Ichiban and must say, it's a cute little guy. I think it will work great around shallow weedlines and over the top of submerged grass. Anyone use one and, if so, what do you think? Also, the V4 buzzbait I grabbed has the small dual clear 4 blades on it. I thin...

I only have a few, very common ones, really looking forward to what this thread uncovers. I have seen some awesome MB patterns for the 110 on here.
Let's see them.

Re: Wart style baits

As a long time wart user, the benefit of the old warts was that they all ran differently. Some had a really wide wobble with erratic action while some didn't and you had to tune them to run properly most of the time. To me, you can't replace an original wart with any modern bait. The newer baits ar...

What's your rarest Oneten

I've gotten a couple of less than common Onetens and I'm curious what your rarest baits are. Here are mine. Megabass Vision Oneten OB Zebra and the Vision Oneten Pro J 10th Anniversary bait.

Re: Favorite Chatterbait

With rereading this thread in mind, what is everyone's favorite method for fishing bladed jigs during the postspawn period and into summer? I'm normally fishing small ponds and lakes up to 15 acres from shore or my kayak. Most of these have emergent weeds, moss cover, wood and the occasional dock. J...

Re: Spool question

It should drop right in. I think I've done that exact swap, but it's been years since I sold off my TD-X's. 99% sure, because I specifically recall that the gear sets will swap between the 2 reels. Thanks. I ask because I have a couple TDX and I can get the 105Pi spools cheaper than a reel, and I p...
