Re: Best buzzbait

Another vote for Cavitron. However, for a "finesse" buzzbait, I really like the Picasso Buzz Saw Jr (1/8 oz). Caught a 6 lber and several in the 2 to 3 range since June with it. It gets on plane pretty quickly and can be crawled across the surface like a Cavitron. x2 for the Buzzsaw Jr- was amazed ...

Favorite EWG Flipping Hook

Switched over to the Trokar MagWorm this year and haven't had too many issues, a few cases where the hook went through and by the time I got the fish to the boat the hook just fell out. I'm guessing this is due to the larger hook point of the Trokar compared to other brands. What hooks do you guys p...

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

I have the Gen 1 XX Tour Versatile and have a 7' M Expride and while they are different actions I feel the Megabass is more sensitive. I mainly use the Tour Versatile for Frogs/Flippin but it does work great as a jig stick and was designed for swimjigs so I dont see an issue throwing swimbaits with ...

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.
