Re: A classic rod and a new reel

If you don't want to pay for a paint job for the sideplates of a pixy or rob the sidplates from a sol, there is always the spruced up sol option.

Re: Pitching a Tent

I have 2 tents that I really like a Marmot Fortress 3 person tent, but you can't stand up in it and a Cabelas alaskan guide geodesic tent 6 person. I camp and fish in the spring and sometimes in the fall, so I like a tent that is going to keep me warm if need be and have plenty of ventilation if it ...

Re: Pitching a Tent

Do you want room to stand up? Are you ok with sleeping on the ground or do you need a queen size air mattress?
2, 3 or 4 season tent? Budget?

Re: G Loomis IMX-Pro or E6x 802c JWR

I have the IMX-Pro 802 C. Using it for finesse jigs like a Pepper Custom Baits Micro Jig 1/4 oz size or Z-Man Shroomz Micro Finesse Jig 1/8 oz size. Works well with jigs or t rigs in that 1/8 oz range. Have even put a keitech swing impact swimbait 3 1/2" on a z man finesse shroomz jig head 1/6 oz.

I beg to differ. It goes best with a 2003 Pixzilla. :big grin:

The Cosugi Works Spool is very user friendly hand has a little more line capacity.

A Sol with a Cosugi Works Spool works pretty good too.

Re: A classic rod and a new reel

Very nice combo, what finesse baits are you going to use it for? Don't know yet. I might try it with a Ned rig first...or maybe a small jig. Any insight? The Pixy Rod works well with open hook baits. I bet the ned rig would work well or a flick shake jig and worm. I have fished a 1/8 oz crappie jig...

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

I really like my Dobyns rods but if your looking for the most sensitive rod get a NRX. The NRX 893 is a sweet rod for 3/8 oz jigs but if your going 1/2 oz get the NRX 894. I love my DRX 723C for skipping 3/8 jigs. Haven't tried the 754 or 755 yet.

Re: Cosugi Works Spool bearing

Sweet, now you have to do a casting comparison and let us know the results. What rods to you use your cosugi spools with? What lure weights? Thanks I have several rods that I have fished with the cosugi spool. Megabass PopX Stick, X4 Cyclone, X4 Super Mirage, X7 Super Cliffhanger, Daiwa Presso AGS ...

Sweet, now you have to do a casting comparison and let us know the results. Finally got to try out the cosugi works spool.
