Re: G. Loomis rods

It seems like all rod companies have QC issues. I have a NRX, glx, a handful of st.croix rods, and a kistler. No problems so far with any of my USA gear, but I've seen plenty of posts where someone has had multiple problems with each of those rod makers. I had 2 MB destroyers snap, 2 with epoxy free...

Re: St. Croix stagnating?

I'm going to pick up a LE 7MF spinning rod before spring because of their focus on build quality and durability. My friends&family have st.croix rods over 20yrs old. I have lighter more sensitive rods but never had a st.croix break in a normal fishing situation. I think a lot of the rod industry is ...

Re: What are you Skipping with?

SV reels are the ticket for skipping. I do jigs and weighted plastics on my glx854c/sv103. weightless on my Diablo 68xti/sv105p.

Re: **Daiwa BLX & Megabass FMJ

I’m one of the unlucky ones that has to order rods to get my hands on them and if it’s not the feel I’m looking for I have to send them back and try again. Same old song I know but it can be exhausting lol Daiwa dropped that BLX in which the few reviews I can find on them say the rods in general ar...

Re: NRX 854c vs Megabass FMJ

I own a NRX 894, GLX 854 and owned an FMJ. I can't make a direct comparison between FMJ and NRX 854 but I think I can help ya out. I can say that the FMJ has a 1/2 click more power than both the nrx894 and glx854 which have similar power. It's seems to be a common opinion that the NRX 854 is a half ...

Re: Disappointed

I have a 7MH LE and prob wouldn't be my first choice as a jig rod but its very legit for topwater and spinnerbaits. I can also say I've never had a st.croix break in a normal fishing situation. Can't say that for other top dollar chinese made rods.

Re: Righty Spinning AND Lefty Casting?

It seems to me reel manufacturers had it bass ackwards. It should be natural for a right handed person to cast right handed, set hook right handed and reel left.

For me lefty spin and righty casting.
Same. I think its due to there not being many LH baitcaster options when I started. I have read that your non dominant hand is more sensitive though, shaving was an example they listed. May be a blessing in disguise.

Re: Switching Combos

Def. Sometimes it takes fishing the gear a bit to find strengths and how it fits your style of fishing. Generally when buying combos I try to match megabass with daiwa reels or loomis with shimano, it ends up out the window for the most part. ](*,)

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

Pulled the trigger with Gary at ttt. It's going to be a while before I can fish the rod on the water. I'll probably get some looks from the neighbors while throwing a frog in the snow next week.

Re: A Lesson Worth Sharing

At the time I was considering evergreen for bottom contact word was they were being made by daiwa and nrx was king of sensitivity so kinda dismissed them. Just found those Luxxe rods you speak of.. I really like the lure rating on that Oltre 70H 3/16-1 1/4. That could be a problem. I have 7 "high en...
