Re: St. Croix stagnating?

I am new to Muskie fishing, picked up my first muskie rod, a St. croix Premier. But i quickly realized that they are HUGE in the musky world. They have 5 muskie rod series, which is a lot.

Re: 4000 Spinning Reels for 7'6" L Rods

I like a 3000 size shimano spinner on my 7'5 medium powered rod.

i think a 4000 would be way too bulky

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

for one thing, the USDM G. Loomis rods will all have hook keepers. I dont think any of the JDM shimano rods do.

that would drive me crazy, to me, buying a rod without a built in hook keeper is like buying a car without cruise control. :D

Re: Any 2020 Shimano reel leaks.....

maybe its payback because the Daiwa ballistic spinning reel is a carbon copy of the Ci4+, same handle, color scheme and everything

Thanks! That’s Sunline Defier, IMHO, the best cranking line available.

Re: Shimano and G.Loomis Launch Limited Edition Bantam MGL & IMX-Pro Combos

take my money please!

as amazing as this combo is for the price, I am kind of thinking it might have been better to pair the bantam up with one of the newer more 'all around' MBR IMX Pro's like an 843c or 903c would it not?

Re: Longer high-end rod choices

I have the E6X MBR903C and i love it. its 7'6 and one piece.

it is also offered in IMX Pro which is higher end than the E6X.

One thing i would not want is a two piece rod. 1 piece is still way better even with modern ferrule design IMO.

just food for thought.

Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

on the spinning side, the SS whiskers (the black and gold ones) are still in production and I believe are unchanged since the mid to late 80s.

thats almost 40 years now.

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

for what its worth, I believe the new IMX Pro has SJRs 901 and 902 S that will be in 'permanent' production.

not conquest or NRX level but still awesome rods supposedly (i have not fished with one yet, but will one day)
