Megabass Levante Enforcer vs. Orochi Enforcer vs. Destroyer Brigand?

Looking into these rods to serve as a heavy drop shop option for fishing in upstate NY. Usually throwing 1/2 - 5/8oz drop shot weights in current. How different is the Brigand vs. the Orochi XX? How much more am I gaining with the Orochi over the Levante? Would be matched with a 4000-CXH size Certat...

Old School GLX (pre 2012) vs. Today's Rods

How do they compare? Back in 2001, the GLX 783C was $328 in a very good market. How does blank sensitivity compare to today's rods? Thanks and best wishes on the water!

Re: Luvias LT

I picked up a Certate 4000C-XH as well as the 4000C-XH JDM Luvias. Both performed FLAWLESSLY on the St. Lawrence since Saturday. I missed a PIG this morning on a boot tail 4" Keitech style custom bait that shook off in the whitecaps (jumped earlier and knew how big it was) as we closed off the trip....

Re: St. Croix Legend Xtreme 2020

My buddy fished the heck out of his 6'10" ML spinning Xtreme on the St. Lawrence this week and he is still blown away by the sensitivity.

Re: First outing with the Brigand (Destroyer 19 new spinning)

How would this rod suit big water (1000 Islands NY, Ontario, etc.) drop shotting?

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Hopefully the pictures will work. I need to do a complete 2020 rod and reel post, but these are my two favorite spinning setups. 7'6 MML Steez rods paired with 4000 Exists LTs. I have owned a lot of high-end gear and these are my favorite purchases. I fish a for smallmouth in the Great Lakes a lot ...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

I just picked up a Luvias LT 4000-CXH JDM and it's really nice. I have two NIB 15 Exist 3012H from last year that I have in my reel storage and just picked up through a trade with a good buddy a new with tags, in a sealed bag, Daiwa 76MML. Should I jump to a new Exist LT 4000 with it? He had three o...

The reel was clearly a Lews LFS. It also had red and black Winn flat paddle knobs. Maybe it was a prototype. The MLF rerun show is on the Outdoor Channel on Friday at 9.00 a.m. eastern. The reel is shown in the early part of the show.
Relax I was joking.

Megabass Custom FX68 Spool (Purple)

I got a Megabass Custom FX68 purple spool this week. Can anyone give me some info on this spool as far as performance in a TD-Z frame? I can't seem to find much info and I can't find any for sale to determine the worth of the spool. Thanks!

Re: Luvias LT

Ordered a 4000 CXH JDM the other day. Does anyone else have this model? Is it JDM only? Thanks and best wishes on the water!

Re: What is Daiwa doing?

I agree with the SV105 reels. That old Alphas/Sol platform is timeless and quality too.
