Re: Dock skipping setup

DOBYNS 704 EX. and the zillion 7.1 twsv is my fav. 3/8 to 1/2 jigs . Makes skipping jigs so easy . For heavier cover and jigs 1/2 to 5/8 the 745 EX with a steez 100SHA and I'm a braid guy so 40sx1, 16-18lb leader on the 704 , 50fx2 ,18-22lb leader on the 745 . FG knot 8-10ft leaders.

Re: Favorite low profile squarebill reel?

I have two curdo D100 and 50E , truth be told I really enjoy the 50E . Haven't had a chance to try the 70 yet but I bet it's a sweet little squarebill caster in the 6.3 ratio .

Re: Best all around crankbait rod in the $200 range?

I have the 705cb mf and the 765cb glass rods and these two rods are very similar in action , with the 765 having a little more power of course . I can fish 3/8 square bills to 6XD , but I do perfer the deepdivers on the 765CB , Dobyns crankbait rods are jewels in the crankbait rod market IMO

MAXIMA VS FX2

I've been using Sunline 50lb FX2 for yrs. flip and pitch'n, frogg'n etc. with great results and I've notice alot of TT members have praised the Maxima braid and I'm wondering if anyone has used both the FX2 and the Maxima and can tell me the pro's and con's between the two .

Re: Best Baitcaster under 100$?

x2 diawa ct , the r has better bearing and lighter spool cast lighter baits better . ALF has new r's 139. on fleabay . Best bang for the buck IMO and I'm a shimano guy at heart curado and up . Diawa's cast control is the shizz .

Re: What Fluorocarbon should I buy?

sunline Sniper is a great all around line , not the best at one thing , just great all around [ knot , stretch , memory etc. ] ALF has it on sell .
