Re: Chatterbait rod

i love throwing skirtless bladed jigs with keitech trailers. i typically use a MH fast for grass, open water or moderate cover. for slow rolling a heavy one on the bottom ill use a heavy power. i can recommend these: old GLX 783 - roll casts and pitching to laydowns old GLX 843, NRX 843.

St Croix LE for dropshot

Hello, Ive been sitting on a damaged St. Croix LE rod that I plan on sending in. I'd like to trade it for a LE spinning rod, ML power for light dropshot. Would you recommend the ES610MLXF? The Mojo version is labeled the "drop shot/finesse" rod. Does the LE version share the same character...

Re: Spining Rod Opinions

the nrx 852s is hands down the best spinning rod ive ever fished. Ive fished F and XF Med and ML LEs, Avids, other NRX, GLX. The NRX 852 is noticeably softer in the top section than the 2016 LES7MF. I'd say it sits between a St.Croix ML and M in power in the upper part of the rod. You can find NRXs ...

Re: megabass destroyer Daemos

^^^ x 2

great t-rig and small jig rod when your not tossing into the mess.

a totally different rod from the XX DSR. doesnt load as well but better suited for bottom contact IMO. feels like a medium power rod in hand (light, well balanced and crisp). if it were a loomis id call it a 3.5 power.

id say almost 3.5 compared to my nrx843. to me its the ideal t-rig rod, cover permitting.

Re: 6'6" version of the old MBR 842 GLX

agreed. the old 782 and 842 glx are not just different in length, very different rods in my hands.

Re: New Senko/Neko Rod

NRX 852 would be my choice. I hear the new GLXs are great. ask tackletrap about a TT discount, you might be surprised. the expeditor plan lets me treat all of my loomis rods like they cost $100. 852 is also a great shakeyhead and 3/16-3/8oz DS rod IMO.

Re: First look at Megabass Destroyer USA rods

Will there be any new USA Destroyer models added this year? Or will the lineup stay the same? i'd love to see a 4 power treble hook rod around 7'3" and a small swimbait rod. in this old video they mention more models to come at 0:30 https://www.youtube.com/watch?time_continue=90&v=HeB42raz...

Re: Need some help with G loomis What is your?

the old glx 842c is another of my favorites. i use it mostly for small swim jigheads with small paddle tails and topwater. the old glx 782c is a great pop-x rod. feels almost a power lower than the 842c in the tip IMO. i love the old grips on the glx. i dont care for the cork foregrip but laying my ...

Re: MegabassOrochi Diablo Uses

DSR is a great rod. i like it mostly for single hook moving baits around 1/2oz, lipless and "moving" top water as opposed to walking. loads up and casts the small whopper plopper a mile. ive never fished a frog with the rod but i dont think it would lack in power when fishing them in light...

Re: How many rods?

if overhanging trees will be an issue i take 3 rods. on scotty holders at an angle, 1 in the front and two behind. if its an open area i will take up to five. usually 3 verticle and two in the scotty holders. 4 is a good compromise IMO. what rods i bring depends on the body of water and what i feel ...

Re: Destroyer USA Oneten special

i hope someone with more time with the rod than i have can answer your specific questions. i have only thrown walking topwater on the rod and it has been great for that. great for making roll casts. its a 7 foot rod north of the reel seat. balances very well - i have a Metanium on it currently. the ...
