Re: Hot weather and Trout Magnets

Do you fish those things with a float or just the head and plastic? Because of the pickerel issues you mentioned I can never make myself go below 4-6lb mono, but have yet to find a rod that will cast just the head/plastic very well with such "heavy" line.

Re: Floating S-Waver?

I had one that would sit just under the surface and would very very slowly float up on the pause. But I believe Cal is correct, they are supposed to slow-sink.

They are great lures, but I would gladly pay a little more for better QC.

Re: GLX 842c new model applications

Give a light t-tig a try before you give up on the rod. Get a soft 6" worm like a Producto or a Fat Robo, rig it with a thin-wire 2/0 hook and like an 1/8oz sinker. If it's anything like the old style GLXs then I think you will be pleasantly surprised.

Re: GLX 842c new model applications

Is there much difference in action between the new 842c and the old 782c? I recently picked up an old model mbr782 GLX and it is amazing for light t-rigged worms/heavy Neko rigs. I am also going to use it for small paddle tails in open water. I like a faster rod for jerkbaits which is what most peop...

Re: Phenix Recon PHX-C682 and PHX-C712 differences

Compared to other bfs rods i have used the feather is more similar to the 6'6" XL legend inshore as far as power and taper go than it is say to the 6'5"L cronos, 6'4"L hyuga or 6'4"L super trickster. Those rods have a much faster and responsive tip than the feather but the feath...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

I have a Steez sv tw that I bought because I was looking for a smaller-ish reel that was lighter then an sv103 to use for heavier lures then I want to use a sv105 for. I also picked up a Aldebaran 50 at the same time because I am a child who hates money. The Steeze is far nicer and easier to cast th...

Re: Floro on SV spools v.s. conventional

Wouldn't you be casting all the leader or fluoro and braid off on a BFS spool??? My SV105 with 8lb P-Line Halo and a 1/4oz dropshot weight will almost dump the spool. If it was over 1/2 full I would be in trouble to have a big connecting knot come flying through. On my Chronarch MGL (backing is old...

Re: Floro on SV spools v.s. conventional

I have even noticed it makes a pretty big difference to fill even half way with old braid. I always just filled SV spools all the way with fluoro until I recently got a scale and was shocked. A big Zillion TWS spool full of braid weighed like 27 grams, and a G1 1016 weighed like 23 grams full of fl...

Re: Roboworm Ned Worms

I bought a few packs and am unimpressed with them as a MWF plastic, they have very poor durability on a jighead and don't get hit more often than the Zman stuff. I do think they will be great rigged weightless on a small EWG hook for slow moving water, fished like a sluggo. They are pretty heavy for...

Man, the urge to sell my old-gen XX DropShot and pick up a Whipsnake is getting stronger by the second.

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

not sure what you want this rod for but the 110 special has a short handle (like an old BCR or 6'6" MBR) and is like a 7ft rod above the reel seat and pretty well balanced IMO with even a lightish reel like a Core or Curado 71. I like it for 1/2oz walking topwater (i like a little more tip for...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

Cool, thanks guys! It sounds like I should be looking at the CNQ 842C if I want to upgrade or the 853c GLX if I want a more lateral move. I need to get the CR723 GLX some more time on the water before I make any moves, but if it can cover the presentations I use the 783c GLX for then I think the 783...
