Re: Tatula LT vs. Fuego LT spinning

Thanks for the help on this, I've decided on the Tatula LT and as luck would have it, I actually got to check out both reels in person. Yeah, you were right, the Fuego LT wasn't bad but it wasn't what I hoped it would be from reading the specs. The Tatula LT however was very nice and I was surprised...

Tatula LT vs. Fuego LT spinning

I'm looking to get a new spinning set up in the mid range price point. I'm getting the new revised Tatula spinning rod and I'm hung up on the which reel. The Tatula LT is lighter with the Zaion frame but the Fuego 2500 is still light for a spinning reel and is mag sealed and I like that feature. My ...

Re: Power finesse rod

It may be a little short at 7'1" but I think it fits your needs. G.Loomis IMX Pro 852C JWR, it is an extra fast action and works great for shaky heads and smaller finesse jigs and Neko rigs, it might be worth your time to check one out. I was actually looking at the IMX Pro 892C JWR. It seems ...

Re: Poppers that "bloop"

Rebel Super Pop-R, it is 3-1/8" long and only weighs 5/16oz. I fish spitting poppers when the fish aren't very aggressive or the water is clear but when I want that "bloop" sound the super pop-r is what I like. The best part for you is that it is heavy enough to fish with casting gear...

Re: Old school flat rubber

I did the video on the puffball jig and thank you Big-Bass for explaining that I'm tying at a slow pace so you can see how I do it. Now, I talked to mmarkinma56 a few years ago on Tackle Underground in which I gave you my email and shipping address and you were going to email me pictures and send me...

Re: Jigs with Living Rubber

Living rubber has a little more action than silicone but it doesn't mean it makes it better. There are also a few different types of living rubber, there is the flat line rubber which looks like silicone, then you have the round rubber, and old school square rubber. I also have to add in the fact th...

Re: Putting the Pro in IMX, G.Loomis's new DSR822S

Just to let you guys know, you listed the rod in the review as a "light" power and Loomis has it as a mag medium power.

Re: Do Expride rods have a high rate of breakage?

You may not like what I say but I've heard this right from the mouth of a rod designer years ago. He told me that boat flipping fish is wrong, if you break a rod boat flipping a fish it is your fault as the rod isn't designed to be stressed like that. Just like high sticking, boat flipping puts extr...

Re: Why no love for the E6X?

I have a 783c and it's an OK rod but I find it lacking in sensitivity. I use it mostly for spinnerbaits. You're paying for the G Loomis name and warranty for these rods in my opinion and this rod would be better suited with a 100 dollar price tag. I agree with the above statement, if they were $100...

Re: Favorite finesse jig trailers

It depends on what type of finesse jig. If you are talking about Eakins style finesse jigs then I'd go with the Zoom Super Chunk Jr. and the Netbait Paca Chunk. For the small finesse jigs in the micro category I like the Venom Ron Yurko Finesse chunk, the Zoom Tiny Chunk, and for the slightly larger...

Re: Favorite Mid-Range Crankbait (8-12 feet)

I'm old school when it comes to mid depth cranks. I do well with a Bomber 7A, and the Fat Free Shad in the #5 and #6 sizes. I also like the Rapala DT-10 and the Bagley Diving B2. I know these aren't flashy lures but they flat out catch fish and it amazes me why more don't use some of the old school ...

Re: Pflueger Trion

So over 100 views and only one reply? Wow. Doesn't anyone have anything bad to say about this reel, other than the price for an extra spool is way too much. I went ahead and used this little pearl white reel and so far I like it. Very smooth and quiet. Anti-reverse works good, bail opens and closes...

Re: Evergreen Brett Hite Combat Sticks

I think I'm done reading reviews on here. My wife got some money on a scratch off and let me have a guilty pleasure, so I ordered the Evergreen JackHammer 7'3" Glass rod. I have a Hammer Rod in a 6'9" H and I should have just got a longer model but I was really intrigued by the review it g...
