Re: Megabass Orochi XXX or Phenix Feather Bass

So, if I have a Phenix Recon2 C681L BFS rod and a XX Drop Shot rod and if I want to sell them and combine their uses into a single rod, will be XXX Black Themis work for this? I like the Phenix but I use it for weightless/lightly weighted plastics like 80%, so the more ModFast action isn't super use...

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX or Phenix Feather Bass

I think you should get the Black Themis because I am really curious about it don't seem to be any reviews of it online

Yeah that would make you the ultimate weeb


It would be totally worth it for that 1 out of 100 trips when someone notices it.

Re: USDM 500-size reels

The 500 sized reel on the 6400 IMX is really a sweetly balanced combo and is wonderful to fish with. I have a 6400 IMX with a 1000 Stradic FJ on it and it is a little heavy, but I kinda like how butt-heavy it is. It took me a while to come around to the 6400, it's a weird little rod but I really li...

Re: What new baits will you be tying on this year ?

Also been using my version of a "Tiny Ika", take a Hula Grub's tails off and rig the body with skirting pointed rear on a #1 or 1/0 and pitch with a 1/8 Tungsten into brush. It's like a tiny tube but a little more slender. I have done this and it works pretty well, I never settled on a go...

I literally just made it up, so hopefully someone who actually knows what they're doing in this matter can weigh in.

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

Yea, I don't mind having to flush bearings, I have an untrasonic cleaner and was going to run them in there with some acetone, then blow them out with compressed air. I am not even really upset it didnt blow my things off, its still a great feeling reel, I just was shocked how much it feels like th...

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

I have a RCS 1012 I am going to try in it, but I was hoping to not need to. At this point I cant tell if I feel like the Steez SV TW is over valued or if the sv103 is undervalued. Other then weight, the reels have a near identical feel to me in terms of smoothness and general "damn this thing i...

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

I gotta stop reading TT; https://i.imgur.com/MRwxrFim.jpg I decided to get the Steez but for some reason threw a lowball bid on a NIB Aldebaran, fully expecting to get sniped at the last second. But nope, I won it and got the reel for $250. I only have an hour or so on each, the Alde feels like it i...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I owned both the TV and PP. I sold the TV because it had too much overlap with the PP and though the PP is a heavier stick, it was more versatile imo. The TV just felt really stout and lacking in the tip department. It didn’t load near as nice as the PP did. Almost a broomstick feel to it when comp...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

The new model taking its place will be very impressive and cover more of the finesse presentation spectrum. Will still be an excellent choice for dropshot presentations but will be more versatile as well. I have an XX Dropshot and while I do really like it as a DS rod, I am not really digging it fo...

Re: Favorite paddletails?

I see Keitech mentioned several times . . . but not its Easy Shiner . Maybe I missed it in another post. I've never used anything with better tail action. I actually prefer to throw mine unweighted where I can run it at various heights in the water column more easily. Nearly weedless, this way, and...
