Re: The Best Swimbait Rod

I’ve been eyeballing Artex for about a year now. I just can’t bring myself to pay that much over retail even though I seldom mind overpaying when the monkey gets too crazy. A member on this forum had those not quite artex but similar drt x studio composite rods on the classifieds at a price that see...

Re: Luxxe Rods

oltre 69 mh. It's certainly sensitive. I have to get a faster reel for it; lariat was only unoccupied reel I had to put on it for now. My fishing has changed since I've switched over to faster reels, so it felt kind of strange cranking like a madman. This may have colored my first impression. Like e...

Re: The Best Swimbait Rod

Hey guys, I'm on the market for a swimbait rod. I don't have any budgetary limits. The sky is the limit.... Best regards, The Pond King Artex/DRT Zero, Border Patrol or Hacker depending on what size bait. https://auctions.yahoo.co.jp/closedsearch/closedsearch/artex%20zero/2084005512/ https://www.di...

Re: Used F4-610XDTI Elseil price?

Basically, asking you guys to talk me into buying it or talk me out of buying it. :lol: I’m always hunting around for used rods even if I don’t need them. When I’m hunting Japan sites, I always need look for at least 100 below what I’d like to pay to account for shipping. I’ve seen a few of these e...

Re: The most UNDER rated..

Megabass xti evolution series. These are stuck between the vaulted xfti that have better re-sale value due to collector interest and newer C40s that look exotic. But, xti are awesome and there seems to be a ton of them floating around used or barely used that can be had cheap. It's not as easy as f...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

My St.Croix 7MH LE is a perfect utility stick. Topwater, cranks, spinnerbaits, traps. I LOVE it. I've only had issues with the newer Destroyer line from Megabass. I purchased two '16 fausts, a FMJ and a '16 super destroyer. A pike broke a Faust tip boatside and a smalllie broke my FMJ in a similar ...

Re: More Parabolic Punch Rod

I posted about this rod in punching thread but deserves to be mentioned again here if you’re still looking or want another. New zbone 76 heavy MOD. Parabolic, ultra sensitive, and just addicting when you pick it up and starting flipping, punching what have you. Best rod I’ve ever used for those app...
