Second Is a light rod for neds rigs, third is a dedicated drop shot set up and last is a universal set up for anything and everything. The universal comes out every time, don’t always use it ...

Which shimano low profile for deep cranking

Looking at getting a low profile shimano reel for deep cranking. Strongly debating the bantam mgl. Rod is a megabass launcher, 7’11” medium heavy, main purpose will be 6xd. The odd 10xd, deep six and 300x

Megabass launcher help

Looking at my first deep cranking stick and looking for something to learn on, grow with and use most universally. Wondering if the f5 or f6 is the better way to go? Afraid the f6 I won’t be able to try some of the slightly shallower baits ( 13-18’) and that the f5 won’t handle the real deep baits. ...

Re: Ned Rod

I’ve thrown 5/16oz tube head plus plastic and didn’t feel over powered. Through 1/4oz jig with plastic and didn’t feel too bad! I’ve mainly thrown light stuff so unfortunately I’m not too sure. I’ve yet to feel underpowered with in my hands. I’ve been extremely pleased with power, sensitivity, and b...

Megabass launcher f5 vs f6

Would like to get a bit more Insite on these two sticks. I’m looking for my first deep cranking stick for this upcoming season and heard great things on this rod. Wondering if the new gen 2 (f6) is better overall vs the gen 1 (f5). I see it had a wider range of luring ratings but not sure if the f5 ...

Re: Ned Rod

For neds near cover i use my nrx 852s but don’t fish near too much cover so my expride 7’ light+ gets the win for 95% of my ned fishing. That rod has truly blown me away! What a versatile and powerful little rod, hooked a 5.5lber which pulled me into some thick weeds and this little rod fought back ...

Re: Deep cranking rod?

I used to use an OG Tatula 721MHRB-Glass and honestly it worked almost as well as the Zillion 801MHRB-G, even though it was considerably shorter and rated for an ounce less, so IMO it's good you're not too hung up on length. I purchased on a whim a zillion 7’2” medium heavy regular and was told it ...

Re: One Nice All-Purpose Spinning rod

All this talk about the 842 is making me want one lol. So far I really really like my 852s nrx. Not designed to be all purpose but so far haven’t found anything I don’t like throwing on it. Would love to grab a longer conquest like a 902s or a used nrx 902s if I stumble across one I would be all ov...
