Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

I’m thinking about a CNQ 782s SJR. I will be using it mainly for tubes and the like. 6’6” seems to be my comfort zone. If you have or had one, please share your thoughts . Thanks. Does anyone have the weight of this rod?

Re: Lexy 123 : Feedback Request Topic

Re: Happy Birthday Dan

Happy b-day Dan. I am 70 and I can still do the things I used to do at 40. Maybe, sort of, kind of, oop's got to go, "nap time".
