Re: Heavy or extra heavy rod for 12 exsense dc

Try the new Phenix k2 736. Not sure if it's on their website yet, but I do know the production version is available.

Re: Foul Weather Gear - Simms, Gill, Cabelas Guidewear or what?

I've got a Frogg Toggs Pilot suit. At 250 ish total, it's a very nice suit. It's a few years old, and I've used in steady rain all day and have walked away mostly dry. A little leakage around my knees when kneeling and culling fish, but overall a great buy.

QUESTION: Daiwa Tatula/Zillion TWS -> Braid -> Fluoro Topshot

:?: Hey all. Anyone have trouble topshotting fluorocarbon to braid with the Tatula/Zillion SV TWS reels? I notice the line guide is fairly narrow. Was curious before I spool up for spring. :?:

Re: Phenix Bass Recon?

I’m not familiar with the Dobyns Champ Extreme, but I think it’s their flagship rod. I have used the recons plenty. I have a 762 spinner (Recon 2) that is currently a dedicated float n fly rod. It’s pretty nice. I’ve used it for flick shakes, spy baits, and light under spins. For Ned rigging, and de...

Re: Phenix PHX-C682 = BFS rod

I've been using a Phenix K2 713 for my BFS needs, mostly ned rigs. The top of the lure weight rating (5/8) in my opinion really pushes it. I've done some light split shotting with it as well. It's really sensitive and fun swinging it around with the Aldy BFS.

Re: Crankbait/ChatterBait Rod /w conquest 100

Depending on the size cranks you use, and depth, i use a Phenix M1 72H. This rod is carbon fiber vs. graphite, but has a nice smooth load. I'd call it a Fast taper. I primarily use it for 3/8-5/8 ounce chatterbaits and spinnerbaits around shallow cover and vegetation. I'll also crank 3/8oz + square ...

Re: Fall Delta Punching Video

it's a canned edit feature. i basically just pick the clips i want mashed together and the app does the rest. Pretty legit. Copyright laws prevent me from using my own music on platforms like Instagram/Youtube/Facebook, so i just upload it to the GoPro site.

Fall Delta Punching Video

I'm like 8 years late on the whole GoPro thing, but I have been messing with it some this year. I really appreciate the apps GoPro provides, with templates for your videos, it's made it super easy. I'm looking forward to messing with some of the more advanced apps soon, but for now... https://quik.g...

Re: Frog Rod ideas????

Are you fishing over matted vegetation? If so, I think the recon elite will be awesome. If you're trying to walk/work your frog in open water, the tip might be a little fast and take some adjusting. I think a Phenix MBX 707H is a great all around option.

Re: Frog Rod ideas????

As a Phenix user, the M1 78H or Recon Elite/Recon 2 796 or 766. Just depends on how stiff a frog rod you like. the 766/796 are going to be a little stout. Those three run less than $200 each. The UMBX 707H works well too. A classic is the Cumara 74H. but that's kind of heavy in weight. A buddy of mi...
