Re: ALX Enox

Terrific rods- lightweight, responsive and balanced well. I have the Zolo Maestro as my senko rod. I have a Kistler Mag2 with similar specs and I prefer the Maestro.

Re: Spinning MH rod

Thanks for everyone's help. I got a chance to handle some of these rods at a recent tourney and I've narrowed it down to two rods- Kistler Mag2 LMH/MF and the Denali Lithium MH/MF, both in 7'. Lithium has a cork reel seat handle but it felt really nice. I'll end up pulling the trigger on one of thes...

Re: Spinning MH rod

I will measure it tonight when I get home from work. I have a Tatula LT 3000 on it and it balances pretty good. Awesome, thank you! From the green accent directly above the fore grip it measures 16". From the middle of the reel foot on the reel seat to the butt it measures 13". This rod i...

Re: Spinning MH rod

I suggest taking a look at the kistler mg's very nice sticks for the coin. (frequently on sale directly off their site at least according to a friend who bought 9) I was very surprised by their sensitivity. If they used the latest tvs seat vs the standard barrel they'd be a home run![/quote] Ordinar...

Re: Spinning MH rod

Look at Irod's Fred's Power Finesse H which is a MH. How's the handle length on that rod? Looks short in the pick on TW. Also, the Evergreen Rod looks pretty nice. Not sure I'm feeling the camo action on the grips, but not a deal breaker. Regards to action, any thoughts on Fast vs. Moderate Fast?

Spinning MH rod

Hi all: Need some help picking a spinning rod in the $150 +/- range. Narrowed it down to Daiwa Cronos, Denali Kovert Lite or Abu Villain 2.0. Want a split grip with either EVA or Winn handles. Will be used with a Daiwa Fuego LT 3000 series with 20lb braid for fishing plastics around pads/weeds. Any ...

Re: secret for fluoro and spinning

I just picked up a Cabelas arachnid 2500 spinning reel for 6lb fluoro use. I'm glad I found this thread. Reviewer on another site used 8lb fluoro without any issues. Do you think a line roller bearing would have any effect on the fluoro winding/spooling?

Re: Trout Lures

In the rapala line, stick with CD1, CD3 and CD5, xr6 or the smaller husky jerks.
Yozuri Pin's work great as do the L-minnow.

Re: Best finesse popper?

For me- still the 06 size chug bug. Pops, walks and catches fish. Tennessee Shad. That is all.

Re: How long can a bass live out of the water???

What's the point of this question? If you're CPR, then get it done as quickly and responsibly as possible. Not sure why some people are inclined to photo every 1 and 2 lb bass they catch, but that's another story. Hold it vertically by the lip, not horizontally unsupported, try not to let the bass f...
