Re: Rods without a hook keeper

That's some nice handy work there no doubt. Nicely done and a very, very clean look... Thanks . That was my first spinning rod I had made after a number of fly rods. And it was a Sage blank of all brands. Nice! That's impressive.. It really does look great. A really nice alternative to those who do...

Re: Rods without a hook keeper

That's some nice handy work there no doubt. Nicely done and a very, very clean look. But honestly, I still prefer the Fuji EZ Keeper. To me, it screams JDM and quality. Not only do I love how it looks, I love how I can place it where I want, then move it if I want, then change the color if I want wh...

I throw 110s and Pop Max's on my Hein. It handles them very nicely. Love that stick.

Re: Best hollow body frog rod

My favorite frog blank I have used is the ALX Zolo Toadface. For some reason, that blank just does it for me. But the rod just doesn't do it for me aesthetically/component-wise. Maybe the Perfect Pitch is the answer I have been looking for..

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

Tough question as it probably depends on the depth the angler fishes the most. For me, I mostly fish shallow and I love getting on a good squarebill bite. My two favorite squarebills are the Megabass S Crank 1.2/1.5 & the PH Custom Lures Huntin' P.

Re: Orochi XX Casting Rod 7'2" Diablo Spec R

For frogging, I'd be worried about consistently driving the hooks home and moving fish out of the cabbage with the DSR. Hell of a stick, very nice with single hook moving baits and texas rigs though..

Re: Midseason Tackle Trap Project

Finally spooled her up with 8# Seaguar InvizX and went out to the local pond for about an hour or so Sunday Morning. Wasn't sure where to start lure weight wise, so I rigged up a weightless wacky rigged 5" Senko with a 1/0 Gamakatsu Finesse Wide Gap Hook. The combo was a pure joy to fish. Had 2...

Re: **Galaxy Red Hyper Lariat.....the X-Mas Present theme**

I'm actually kind of digging the knobs. But I agree with Hog & Cortman -- Replace any gold with purple. But nevertheless, to each their own.. always appreciate your unique style man.

Re: Round vs Low Profile reels. Which one do you prefer?

I LOVE my round reels, but I only have 2. If I had to choose all Round or all Low Profile, I'd go Low Profile. But I'm not about to give up my Roundies. Been patiently waiting for a Conquest 51 for awhile now to make it 3 8-)
