Re: Looking for a short frog rod for medium to heavy cover

I use the XX Tour Versatile for Frogs/Light flippin and have had no issues. Another rod I would consider but might have a hard time locating is the F6-69XRC or the Aaron Martens "Frog Game Special" edition. I’ve been looking for a frog game special for about three months on and off I found the regu...

Re: Jig/Frog Rod for Bank Fishing

Depends on what size jigs you plan on using but consider the Megabass Tour Versatile or Power Versatile. I use it for frogs as I am not very tall and with you standing on the bank I feel like the shorter rod would help you work it better. Plus the shorter length will be easier to transport when bank...

Pssh... To a certain extent they'll use whatever they have to in order to sell rods.

You do you, brother.
In the present, yes but during the year this came out I’d like to think other wise. Given that it’s a 1 of 99 I would think money was the last thing they were looking for.

Re: Megabass F5-72XRC-ACL

I have the non crane version, so same thing just not as fancy. I have it paired with a TD-Z and use it for lipless cranks. This rod was one of Amarts favorite jerkbait rods. Thanks for the info Teal! It seems like it would set up perfect for any 3/8-1/2oz moving bait. Given that I’m not a very tall...

Re: Megabass F5-72XRC-ACL

I would think so considering they released a limited edition knuckle with it. The only information I've found is specs on the rod not really a typed out description which is why I made a post on here to see if anyone has used one.

Megabass F5-72XRC-ACL

Was finally able to locate one of these gems at a price point I could afford that wasn't terribly abused. Just curious on if anyone has ever used one of these rods? What was your favorite technique for it? Trying to get an idea of what reel to by as I feel like this rod deserves more than just ANY r...

Re: Expride Tip Guide Replacement

If you cant get a hold of them or determine the size MudHole makes a tool so you can measure both the diameter of the blank and diameter of the tip top and then you can order one from MudHole themselves or your company of choice.

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

I've tried the chatterbaits before and they are money for ponds or small rivers. I went with a Zoom Swimming Fluke Jr. and just bit it down to what I felt looked right. It worked well and I caught many fish but it definitely caused the bait to rise/wake as previously mentioned.

Orochi Peak Performance F3-610DGS

I just ordered one of these rods from a Japan auction site and have only ever seen the LTD edition. Curious on if anyone has ever used or seen one of these rods before?

Spinnerbait Trailer Hook

What is everyone’s go-to spinner bait trailer hook? I’ve tried Gamakatsu and VMC and I think I like the VMC more but just curious if anyone found anything better?
