Re: St Croix Legend rods

I have a couple of the 7ft6mhmf Legend Elites, i love them.....They are very sensitive, dont think ive missed many bites..... Cant say its nrx sensitive, but damn good. The build is excellent, quality cork, and the reel seat is super comfortable. To me, if fishes like a fast action rod and more of ...

Re: Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

I own both. If you can only take one i would suggest going with the addermine. it is more versatile and better for true finesse tactics like neds, open hook dropshots, shad raps/jerkbaits and finesse swimbaits. the 852s is better for bottom contact and weightless presentations, such as shakey heads,...

Re: Conquest 842s

Not to hijack the thread.. but those who have used both the CNQ842s and the NRX 852s, how do the actions and versatility compare? Currently I do just about everything with my 852s, from light trig/shakey head to dropshots..

Re: Looking for a rod recommendation (shakey head, weightless worms, jerkbaits)

I have a 6'10 MF Shimano Expride. Its an awesome rod. Probably the best Jerkbait rod I have used. I usually run 10-12 lb flouro on it in the spring for Jerkbaits. Once the Jerkbait bite starts to die off, I will spool up 20-30lb braid and use this rod for light trigs/shakey heads and topwater baits,...

Re: Dedicated swimjig rod.

Currently using an Expride 7'2 MH and a Falcon Cara 7'2 Mike McClelland swim jig rod. Both are great. I used the Expride for heavier baits in grass and the Falcon for more open water or more 1/4 oz finesse swim jigs

Re: Need a Pitching and Frog Rod...Help...

My vote is for the Expride. I pitch with two 7'2 Exprides. I used the 7'2 mh with braid to leader and 7'2 Heavy with flouro. That is unless im going into thicker grass ill go braid with the heavy. Awesome sticks for the price.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

I have used Gen 1 MB Orochi XX Diablo and EMTF, Expride A 72 MHF and DX 744/DC 734. Of all these rods, the Expride and Diablo spec R were my favorite. That being said, the only rod on this list i still have is the Expride. Love the way they feel, sthe sensitivity they come with, balance, and respons...
