How sturdy are they? Do they slip or the bands break very easy?


Never had one slip or break a band, I've used them for 2 years now.

Re: SS SV or Alpha SV?

Love my SV105 (USDM Alphas). I've not heard many good things about the SS SV, frame flexes and feels hollow are the most common complaints.

Re: 10" Curly Tail Worm

The mag 2 is a 9" thin worm, it's not my top favorite either but I do like it. For a good 10" worm I highly recommend the Zoom Ol' Monster. It's noticeable thicker in body than the Mag 2 and the tail has more meat as well. That's the worm I catch all my good worm bass on. If you're going a...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Rockchalk knocking it out of the park. 8-) Nice combos. Interested in your opinion of the Curado K and how it holds up to your D series reels.

Re: If you could have only one crankbait...

Same as papabassin for me, I don't fish deeper cranks much at all and I love my Megabass S-Cranks. I prefer the 1.5 size.
I'm also really liking the Ima Bill Loewen squarebill, it's a very shallow diver that works great over submerged weed beds, an area I do fish quite a lot.

Re: Livingston Lures -- What has been your experience

I have only one Livingston jerkbait, caught one fish and that was when I was cranking it back to the shore.
I don't want to just down a company but I'm definitely not sold on them. Build quality and paint jobs seemed fine.

Re: Megabass F4.5-70XX Flat Side Special

It should handle them fine. It's a good rod, nice slow action but still a good amount of backbone. I use mine for all cranking needs since I don't do much cranking beyond squarebills.

Isn't addiction when you can kind of realize you should stop and/or you want to stop but can't?
