Re: What to add to the arsenal?

Nrx 893 w/o a doubt, pretty sure it’ll become your favorite rod. That’s what happened to me once I got that model & I think I had 3 other nrx rods at the time I’m just waiting for one to go on sale or a good used one to come up. I am itching to get this rod but I feel like I might be waiting a ...

Hands down. I can say enough about them


Which kistler do you think would fit in there nicely. My kistler is an older helium lta and might be going to a buddy that’s why I was debating the mbr 842/843

Re: Metanium worth the extra cost?

Thanks everyone, I’m pretty set on grabbing a met mgl to try for myself and compare first hand the chronarch mgl and the met mgl. I believe I’ll throw it on my glx 894c. I’m also in the market for an nrx or glx 893 which I might pair it with the met and leave the 894 with the chronarch to test. sou...

Re: frog reel

I’ve got both the tatula sv and curado K and I’d pick the curado for a frogging reel personally!

Re: Metanium worth the extra cost?

I would get a Bantam MGL for the 894 and an Aldebaran MGL for the 842. Both of these reels should balance those rods perfectly and fish better than the Met. Why do you say they would fish better then a met? I’ve heard really mixed reviews on the aldebaran h50/51 and nothing on the mgl version so I ...

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

13 fishing envy black 7’6” with a curado K! Wicked set up. My only 13 rod and it’s awesome! Super sensitive and loads of power! Doesn’t get much use cause I throw a lot on my glx 894c. Thinking of just leaving a t-rigged creature on there this year and the fox as my jig rod

Re: Metanium worth the extra cost?

Would the metanium mgl make a better finesse reel for my glx 852c to throw weightless senko’s, finesse jigs, shakey head and such. Or would it make a better jig reel for throwing 3/8oz-1/2oz jigs with trailers on my glx 894c? Both. I use my Met 13 for lighter stuff and my Met MGL for 3/8 and up, bu...

Metanium worth the extra cost?

I picked up a couple rods and have yet to purchase reels dedicated for them. I grabbed a glx 894 and a glx 852. I paired them with chronarch mgl’s which I love these reels and was going pick up 2 more to throw on the rods I took these reels off (just couldn’t wait to get the reels as I wanted to fis...

Re: best topwater frogs

Been killing it on the Jackall frogs this year. Little smaller, fish seem to inhale it a bit easier. Hooks are crazy sharp and body is super super soft. Hook up ratio had gone way up after using them
