Re: Casting Drop Shot Setups, What You Got ??

Megabass Eiger Northwall with a '12 Aldebaran XG- Northwall feels a little short but gets the job done- feel like the Super Eiger would be perfect :-k

Re: Frog and Punch rod suggestions

I think you might run into some shortcomings if you try to fit all of those techniques into one rod. While I'm sure that some rods out there could "handle" it. I think you would find yourself fishing better/more comfortably if you split it into a couple rods. I know I wouldn't feel comfortable fishi...

Index finger when holding bass?

While browsing social media one thing I noticed when looking at pictures of people holding fish is that some people stick their index finger out or don't grasp the fish with the index but rather with the middle finger. After I noticed this I realized I do it myself and began to ask why? Do you guys ...

Re: 7’2″ F5-72XRC Racing Condition by Megabass

I have the Limited Edition one with the cranes on it. Has become my go-to moving bait rod for baits in the 3/8-1/2oz range, has just the right action to snap the bait free from grass but loads up nice so you don't pull the bait out of the mouth. The limited one came with a limited edition knuckle so...

Re: What is your go-to Jackhammer/Cricket trailer?

When fishing shallow a Zako, Live Magic Shad, or Optimum Double Diamond. When fishing deeper I like a fluke as it gives it more of a "hunting" motion and even more so if you don't put it on perfectly straight :-$

Re: ID this Megabass color

Do you have another picture? I actually just created an Excel Spreadsheet with every color 110 that I know of so I might be able to ID it for you if it is a little bit better of a picture. Based on that picture I would guess GLXS Spring Reaction.

Re: Frogging reel suggestions

Core 50mg7 or Aldebaran MG7 swapped with XG gears. Smaller size for comfortability without sacrificing speed.

Re: Ned Rig CASTING only

Megabass Eiger Northwall paired with a '12 Aldebaran BFS XG- the rod works great but I definitely think it would be better if it was a little longer so I'm looking for the Super Eiger.

Re: First BFS Baits

I have a Megabass Eiger Northwall that I use for pond hopping and I found some lighter spinnerbaits that work well for me. My top choice being the Megabass V-Flat Power Bomb. It only weighs 6 grams but still gives you a decent size profile at the same time. Another good bait choice in my area for ri...

In the same boat myself. If you have a hard time trying to find some I used the Exthread last year and had no issues.

Optimum Double Diamond is super underrated but most of the time I throw a Keitech.

2012 bfs xg is the best bfs reel for NA imo. handles braid, super palmable, solid design, and handles 1/8 to 1/2 just fine.

Looks like I’m going ‘12- might have to dress it up like you did- I feel it’s only right!

Re: '12 Aldebaran BFS vs '15 Aldebaran BFS Limited

Braid has no stretch, so it's less likely to damage a fragile spool. Mono and flouro both stretch, which compreses the spool. A few loops wont hurt, but the problem is when several loops are reeled onto the spool under a load, as happens when a fish hits at the end of a cast. This is what damages b...
