I don't know what I just watched, but I think the "Published on Sep 27, 2017" would mean it's the old model rod, right?

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Anyone have experience with the new Leviathan? I want to dedicate this winter to throwing a 68 Special and I want a rod a more powerful than the Hyuga 72H that I throw them on now. I am also looking at the various Dobyn's rods and while there is a ton of info on them there is almost nothing I can fi...

Re: Swimming Unweighted Worms Rod

I cast a weightless trickworm ~.25oz, on a 783 or 723 GLX with pretty good distance for shorter rods. I do use more finesse orientated reels and/or spools though.

Re: Post purple

You guys got to be careful, the obsession with purple can lead one into some trouble; https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wsoMVxtKlGM 2 seconds in and my head hurts :crying: Hah, yea, Big Mo was not very good. DJ Screw was great, though the purple got the better of him in the end as well. https://www.y...

Re: Taper Characteristics of Different Rod Brands?

I haven't used those rods, but you may want to look into iRods. I've fished quite a few of the Genesis II series rods and most of them are built on a thicker, thin walled blank. The moderate action ones really fit my style of fishing. Quick blanks and more bend equals less lost fish for my style of...

Re: Anybody target the Green Trout ?

There is a little river I like to wade that is full of big Redbrested sunfish and small smallmouths. I usually just fish a Ned the entire time but a few times a year I bring a UL along instead and throw tiny cranks and worms. I really like little 3" trout worms wacky rigged on like a #6 or #4 c...

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

For me I can’t get enough of the older Alphas/Zonda, the body type is perfect for my hands. Made in Japan and build to last! Oh man, that is a nice pile of reels. I also love the Alphas reels, they are so so comfortable. I have yet to spring for a Zonda, but I know one of these days I am going to p...

Re: Taper Characteristics of Different Rod Brands?

If you want a powerful rod that bends deep into the bank, the MB Hyuga 72H has been working great as a frog rod for me.

Re: Post purple

I seem to be a big fan of purple. The ito parts all match but the lighting makes it look like it’s a different shade on the retainer and caps. https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/150x100q90/923/zGC6nO.png https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2/150x100q90/923/Ee8RCh.jpg https://imagizer.imageshack.com/v2...

Re: Purple Knobs

I have almost bought the purple version of this handle a dozen times, but I am never quite loaded enough to do it. One night the insomnia and beer is gonna push me over the edge into doing it.

Re: OG Steez vs Steez TW

I ran into a similar situation with my monoblock. I really tried to find a way to grip it comfortably but I just couldn’t. It had a sharp edge that would dig into my pinky and I ended up selling it. I paid close enough to msrp that I am not gonna sell it, it feels good on my FMJ so I am sure at som...

Re: Do I need to change reels or line?

Man, I am either just a bad caster or run my brakes way way too conservatively. I have a sv103 on my Hyuga and with the same capacity spool and using 55lb braid or 25 lb Defier Armilo, I never come close to spooling my reel, hell, I run both spools with like 40-45% backing and never even hit the tap...

Re: OG Steez vs Steez TW

I think both are comfortable for how I hold a combo. I’ll give a slight edge to the sv tw though. If we are also factoring in price, then I’m og Steez all the way. Sv tw isn’t worth the money in my opinion. It does nothing that my $200 Alphas sv can’t do, and it does nothing my $200 sv103 can’t do....

I didn't set out to get a purple rod/reel to fish a purple rat on, but I am pleased that it worked out that way.
