Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

I got to try out my Diablo Spec-R and Daiwa SV Steez for the first time and all I can say is WOW!!!! The rod is unlike anything I’ve ever used and is extremely sensitive based on what I’ve used in the past. And the reel is like butter, deadly combo. Threw some 40lb Maxcuatro and loved it. Caught som...

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

What knot have you been using on the super slick? I've been using super slick for many years now and have had no issues with knots. I use braid in the ocean and the fish there run much larger than bass lol. Try using the FG knot. I use 30lb super slick to 20lb fluoro. Of course the knot has to be t...

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

Try Maxuato 40, the new Sunline Xplasma or Dual Hardcore 30. The recommendations on line size are not the gospel. I wouldnt go above .3 mm if you want to maximize distance with less than 3/8th oz lures. Couldn’t find the first one you mentioned maxuato even tried maxauto for typo. And I said power ...

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

Frogs and weightless senko rods really are a bit apart power wise unless you're fishing mostly moderate to open water frogging. Megabass Frog rods are usually F7 power with F6 doable. Weightless senko rods for MB is usually F4-F5 power. With that said and the length you want I would recommend the P...

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

What size braid should I go with now that I have the steez sv 103xs and the Spec-R combo? I use power pro and I was thinking of getting 50lb braid but is that too heavy for my finess applications where I’m weightless? I currently have 20lb on my revo sx and works great but the steez is saying it’s 1...

Re: Tekel sprekel frog

I use my whopper plopper in open water but when there’s any weeds or pads, I use my sprinker frog before any regular frog because I still love that tail action to attract bass in between pads and over veg and weeds and man it works. I’ve caught tons of bass and I even add a trailer hook which stays ...

Re: TackleTour Discussion Forum - Guidelines and Rules

Hi Cal,

I’m new to the forum and absolutely love it. The help here is amazing.
I would love to post in other threads but can’t seem to find the reply button or anything of that sort.
Do I have to wait a certain amount of time to be able to post in other peoples threads?

Thanks!

The Hook up Tackle is based in AZ, they have a real store and a website. They take trade in on used rods and list them on ebay, they also sell thier new rods on ebay. You will probobly do well and not have to deal with Ebay if you just call them and offer a price on the rod. Or go to the website an...

But I would strongly recommend getting your new MB rod from Tackle Trap. The advertised price is the same and Tackle Trap is well known for their customer service.


Yes you’re right I forgot about them.

Thanks again

Warranty still available when buying Megabass from eBay?

I’m looking to buy a brand new Megabass rod from eBay and was wondering if their warranty still applies?

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

There is a MB PH3 Bearing Down for sale in the classifieds, posted just a couple of hours ago. Would fit your needs well. It probobly won't last through the night on the board. As you will soon learn with a MB addiction, act fast and make excuses to your wife later. https://tackletrap.com/index.php...
