Re: Daiwa Steez Rods

I've been on the fence about either the Steez 7'6" MML spinning rod or waiting for the NRX 901 and 902 to come out in the near future or possibly the Conquest 902. I've read and heard from a variety of folks about the guides on the Daiwas breaking. I do like the fact the Steez will cover what both t...

Re: Super tough bite! Help

I would try a spybait and an underspin with a small swimbait style bait. What type of baitfish are in this particular lake?

Re: Is there a better deep jerkbait than the staysee 90

Another to look at is the older Rapala Depp X-Raps. I've had very good luck with and they run true out of the package. Although, it is very hard to beat the Staysee 90!

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

Can you share with us who you are ordering these through? Or just send a PM?

Yes sir I can confirm a yes on both. I already preordered a 901 and a Stella FJ for it. I’m batting around adding a 902 as well. I had two of both the 901 and 902 and stupidly got rid of all four. Not again.

NRX 901 SJR Special Run

Is it true that Loomis is talking about a special run on this blank? Have heard they were considering a one-time run on the 901 and 902. Can anyone confirm if and when they might do this?

Re: New Poison Adrena

Just picked up a new 6'11" and used it this past weeknd. Very nice rod overall and appers to be very versatile. I'm hoping the blank is not too stiff for throwing 110's and pointer 100's.

Re: Megabass rods

Rob, I'm with you. Very unimpressed with the US line overall. Have had a few breakage issues, but overall not too bad. The Gen 2 Orchi is a dud IMO. Gen 1 are just a better rod at least for me.

I've been using the Conquest 905 for swimbaits and Alabama Rigs and love it. The rod can handle baits up to 3 ounces.

Re: thinking of a new bottom contact rod

I've owned both the 904 and Valdivia. I still have the 904 and love it. The Valdivia was nice, but was not impressed with it as a jig or texas rig rod. It excelled as a carolina rig rod in my opinion, but I wanted something that could do that as well throw a t-rig and jig and feel the 904 does all o...

Re: Conquest 905C Question

Really love my 905. Bought a 904 as well and really prefer the 905 as a jig rod. My preference is a stiffer rod for jig fishing. It also has done well for me throwing an A-rig this winter/spring.
