Re: What happen to the Z hype?

To the OP: I'll try and give my honest answer here as I was sincerely intrigued by this new reel with "never before utilized groundbreaking technology that casts to the moon and is perfectly silent which took many years to perfect." -- or something along those lines... For me, it was the p...

Re: Your 3 go to/favorite baits, and three you hate?

I just don't get the finess thing. I would rather fish all day for one big bite. It's not for everyone, but sometimes it's the deal. Lot's of tournaments get won on finesse rigs. The guy throwing a t-rig or frog goes home early and empty-handed and the guy throwing a drop shot cashes $100,000 check.

Re: Megabass fmj vs valdiva

I don't have the XXPP, but everything I've heard is that it is an absolutely fantastic frog rod. In general..If I needed a frog rod and a bottom contact stick and I was picking 1 Orochi XX and 1 USDM Destroyer...I would choose the USDM Destroyer for my bottom contact duties. Not to say that the Oroc...

Re: Advice for a 1/2oz jig rod and some long-winded musings.

The FMJ is a helluva 1/2oz jig rod in my opinion. It's a special rod in my arsenal...one I find myself reaching for often. Extremely sensitive in my hands. I can't imagine you'd be left desiring much more. I have read a lot of posts like this about the FMJ which is why I am leaning towards it. What...

Re: Chatterbait rod

The Javelin is awesome. It's currently my primary chatterbait stick. If you like 7'5" go for it. If you want something a little shorter, go Daemos. Although I will say, cndbasshunter's CQ843/903 idea could be fun too 8-)

Re: New Steez Ergonomics

Just to echo the above.. nothing to worry about with ergonomics. It's probably my favorite reel to palm.
