Re: Daiwa Morethan PE Baitcaster...any other spools that fit?

If it’s the PE SV or first version of the morethan baitcaster, I believe you have a 36 mm spool. This limits your aftermarket possibilities like recent zpi and ktf offerings are a no go b/c they focus on 34s. Half of their newer spools are on the shallow side anyway. So, you’d have to look into the ...

Re: Favorite EWG Flipping Hook

It's not exactly EWG, but the Owner Twistlock Flipping hook is my personal favorite. I stick to 3/0-5/0 for d-bombs and keitechs. X2 on the owner twistlock. Also my go to in recent times. Easy on with baits and it seems to always get through the trick stuff nicely. It’s streamlined nicely for lack ...

Re: Underspin

Owner flashy swimmer. The one and only. I got some of those but some times it seems like I miss fish on them being weedless, I want a exposed hook. I see. Yeah; I fish them in thick grassy lakes typically. I will work them near weed edges when open water is available and often get really thumped th...

Re: Flip Pitch Punch Reel

Deps DR-100ZX and zillion type R. The type R really benefited from a 50th handle for this application. Unfortunately, I can be a slow learner and I had to go through 2 type R handles before I made this switch. The handles broke on you? What happened? Yes; the first time I thought it might have been...

Re: 2019 Z Bone vs. Conquest

You got me excited. I’m hoping the 5 power Zbone has more power then my 894 I think you’ll find exactly that. I’ve found no job “too big” for this rod bass fishing in the most choked out lakes you can imagine in FL. I think the new 5 zbone hands down has more power than conquest 904 and several her...

What have you been throwing on the 71h ??
Frogs; large wake baits; heavy vibrating and swim jigs with large profile trailers.

You can also bounce a jig on the bottom with it and feel plenty.

Re: 2019 Z Bone vs. Conquest

I have the 7-6 LE-5 Z-Bone and the CNQ 904. Both are great rods. They are neck and neck as far as sensitivity. With the Z-Bone being on sale, you can't go wrong. Very good information. Thank you, TommyG! Z bone owner Tried one. Not impressed Seems they kept the Z and gave me the bone I prefer the H...

Re: 2019 Z Bone vs. Conquest

I also have the same two rods as TommyG. They have such different tapers and fulfill such different roles in my hands that it’s hard to compare them for me sensitivity wise; but both are top notch in the department. The heavier feeling z bone is a flat out broomstick in my opinion, but that’s the po...

Re: Valkyries

I’ve fished my 71h now since the week they became available at TTT and still really like the rod. It’s become a staple. By far my favorite of the newer gen MB rods. The 71h doesn’t seem to get much attention, but I find it well balanced for a h rod, great taper, and I love the spiral wrap. It might ...

Re: Megabass Vision 110 - Best Color?

Thanks; I’ll give it a look. Yeah; GG bass is just a shinny gold blob in the water. GG shad is a dead ringer for a FL strain baby bass. I sometimes get bites only after a 10-15 Mississippi dead sticking next to docks. I like them to look real in those cases since I’ve caught some of the fish in my l...

Do you feel like it could handle 1/2oz cranks or stick to something more like 3/8oz (not deep divers).
Yes; i think it could.
