Re: U-40 pros and cons

Yes, you can probably apply to your rods three times with one bottle.

Re: Megabass jota slantbridge

I have the jota, just not slant bridge(wish I did). I use it for topwater 1/4 -3/4. The length and action are perfect for working walkers and poppers and if I didn’t have a rod I use for jerkbaits I would use it for that as well. The slant bridge gives you even more clearance to work baits as well a...

Re: Steez racing design guys

Sounds like the rod I am looking for. I'm not to concerned about the money, I can always make more but I have limited time to fish and want to make the best of it.

Re: Steez racing design guys

Thanks dom. That's exactly what I'm looking for I have found it in the low 800's but that wasn't shipped. 725 shipped is definitely workable. Any place special I should look🙏

Re: Steez racing design guys

I can maybe get that much flouro on it. Worth a try. I have never felt like it was transmitting much when dragging a small jig head. I have never fished a moving bait on the rod. Of the rods I have that I fish bottom contact with, Fmj, javelin, Valkyrie 6’11mh, perfect pitch and Valdivia, all feel w...

Re: Steez racing design guys

Ygk 22lb to 8lb gama flouro with fg knot Ah, well IMHO You should try going straight fluoro. Unless you're swimming baits or actively dragging them across the bottom it's just hard to tell you're getting a bite on braid. Even with a $1000 rod you'll be line watching just because braid doesn't trans...

I didn't like my Jackson rod either.
Looks sweet with the Zonda hedgehog but it’s dead feeling. I have recently caught a few off beds with a trd and I set the hook when I saw the fish swim away cause I never felt a thing.
Using what line?

Steez racing design guys

I'm looking to replace my 6'8 Jackson super trickster pp finesse with a racing design for Ned's and shakeyheads as I feel my current rod is lacking greatly in the sensitivity department. My question is do I want the 6'8 or the 6'10. I believe the 6'8 is a medium and the 6'10 is a medium light, but t...

Re: Megabass Valkyrie Rods

Got out on the water with 6’11 mh Valkyrie today, the rod is very nice. I only fished it with a 3/8 jig with a Flappin hog trailer but I did catch 5 with it. Nothing big but the rod is very sensitive and has a sweet taper to it. With a zillion sv the rod balances under the reel. Anyone looking for a...

Re: Megabass Valkyrie Rods

Just had Valkyrie 6'11 mh show up yesterday. The rod looks beautiful. Balance's right on the front of the locknut with the but in the standard setting. I was a little nervous with the weight because specs say it is a 197g but it certainly doesn't feel like that at all. Hopefully I can get it on the...

Re: Expride Med

I have 6'10 med expride 1st gen and it is excellent for jerkbaits. I wonder if the 2 gen is a lot different from first. The price for the 1st gen 6'10m was 349 about 90 more then the 2nd gen. The only 2nd gen's that cost that much are the 9ft rods.

Re: MLF/BPT opinion

I feel like there is not easy access to watch or follow bpt. Haven’t payed one bit of attention to it. I also don’t like the format, so I just started to follow the new guys as I find the elite series and flw more interesting.
