Re: New 2018 Stella FJ and Bantam MGL

I was going to pick up another K series or two... Looks like I'll be getting a pair of Bantam's instead. Can't wait to try it out.

Re: New Senko/Neko Rod

David,

I agree with you. But I said Neko, not Ned.

I'm really leaning towards the 852C in either the IMX Pro or GLX (if I can find the right deal). But the Expride is still in contention.

Re: My first Megabass

Shimano is on to something with these dust black finished reels (Exsense and Curado K). Man they look sharp.

Re: Shimano’s Curado K Baitcaster : More than Black and White

Great write up. Like you mentioned, I'm in the camp of thinking this may be the best Curado yet. We'll see how it stands up over time.

Re: Alphas SV or Other?

I've never thrown hardbaits with my SV105, but I don't see why it wouldn't handle it.

However, my Chronarch MGL with 11lb. Defier on it will bomb a 1/4oz. Baby 1-. The MGL spools are very versatile.

The Keitech Swing Impact Fat is easily the best out there, but it's probably the priciest too. A few high quality knockoffs are out there.

Re: Looking to upgrade: Megabass XX Flatside Special or Dobyns 705CB

I can't comment on the Flatside, but I own the Champion 705CB (graphite version, not a fan of glass rods). I absolutely love my 705CB. That rod will literally handle any moving bait I throw with it (topwater, swim jigs, chatter/spinner baits, squarebills, mid depth cranks, rattle traps, jerkbaits, e...
