Re: What rod/reel combo has/will withstand the test of time?

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

for one thing, the USDM G. Loomis rods will all have hook keepers. I dont think any of the JDM shimano rods do. that would drive me crazy, to me, buying a rod without a built in hook keeper is like buying a car without cruise control. :D interesting. i wish all of my rods did not have built in hook...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

check out the MB FMJ for 1/2oz jigs. a little bit of overkill for the cover you describe but feels as nimble in hand as a lot of MH rods. well balanced IMO. jig plastic rods are what id recommend spending the most on. id recommend a NRX used or on sale (expeditor service still works if not original ...

Re: Rod for a "Guest" Angler

a loomis or st croix or something else with a similar replacement plan so if it breaks youre only out $100 or so.

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

i plan on adding a MB Javelin. seems like a great rod to launch single hook moving baits. im so happy with the balance and feel of the Daemos and FMJ that im not worried at all about the purchase. id love the CNQ 905 for small/medium swim baits and offshore fishing but the price tag is too high for ...

Re: What rods compare to a NRX 852c ?

sensitivity doesnt get better. put something lightweight like an aldebaran on it and you will be spoiled for life.

Re: Megabass F5-72X Daemos

i agree word for word on what vishus said although ive never tried squarebills on it. jigs and t-rig (1/4-3/8oz plus plastic) is what i mainly use it for but also great with single hook moving baits in the 1/2oz range. i even like it for 5 and 6 inch senkos. the daemos and the fmj have become two of...

Re: All around spinning rod (NRX v. ST. C LE v MB Add)

the nrx 852s is my favorite spinning rod. i think it sits right between st.croix ML and Med powers. if i only had one spinning rod it would be this one, no doubt. a ML st croix might be a little better suited for light DS and small mushroom ned jigheads and a Med st croix for 1/4oz jigs (+ plasitc) ...
