Re: Putting a Twist on Spiral Wrapped Rods and Making them Affordable – The Riverside M2

Actually, the reason it wasn't put on the RoD Wrack is because this fella who shall remain nameless (*cough-CAL*) has been shirking his duties... hopefully this will be corrected within the next couple of weeks :lol: ... we appreciate that you appreciate the measurables and apologize for the oversi...

Re: Putting a Twist on Spiral Wrapped Rods and Making them Affordable – The Riverside M2

Is the spiral wrap the reason this wasn't put on the RoD rack? I also didn't see any weight listed, and I don't mean this in a derogatory manner, but the review read more like an advertisement than an actual review. I guess what I mean is it feels like that when you compare it to all the other rod r...

Daiwa Tatula spinning rod question?

I'm looking to pair a rod up with a Tatula LT spinning reel and I think I found it. I'm looking hard at the new Tatula rods when they get released, specifically the 7' medium power fast action. My question is about the blank, I read the reviews on the first generation Tatula rods and was surprised a...

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...
