Re: Phenix Feather

Hey robsone79,

For the saltwater stuff, did you happen to get any specs on the Titan jigging rods? I've tried contacting Phenix but no one has responded.

Thanks

Re: $150+- frog rod

I too fish the Delta and my frog rod has always been a Powell 735. Great rods and can pull fish out of the weeds. As a reference, if you've ever fished Whites or Italian Slough, that's the kind of junk I've pulled fish out of. Last year, I added a 13 Omen Black 2 and like that rod a lot, too. It's p...

Re: New Spinning Setup

I am total agreement with the others. Put your money into a good rod. The Powell MH is not a drop shot rod, at least for most of us. When I think drop shot, mostly it's in deep water and with fairly light line (unless I'm on the CA Delta). The Envy is nice, but you could also go 13 Muse Gold, Tatula...

Re: Kidney stones!

So sorry to hear that! I had a stone earlier this year. May 23rd at 8:00 am to be exact. Once you get a kidney stone, you will never forget it. I had to live with it for 5 days before my surgery. I know a guy who told me that he was shot during the Korean War. He said the kidney stone was worse lol....

Re: TATULA 711MHRB Casting Rod?

If I'm not mistaken, the R refers to the taper of the rod. In this case, a regular or moderate taper. These are crankbait actions. I have the TAT701MRB and it's an awesome rod. Light, well balanced and at a good price. Can't ask for more.

Re: Cal's Kistler Z-Bone Review Dated 10/2016

There was the same kind of issue with the review of the St Croix Legend Elite. The specs were posted as 6-12, but that rod does not exist in St Croix's site. On closer inspection, the first picture says "ES70MF". That model is on the site, but it's a spinning rod. Cal definitely is using a...

Re: Steez AGS rod

I got the 7' ML and I have a 1500 size certate on it. This will be my finesse set up and it balances really nice. I've also tried it with my Pflueger Arbor and it feels good with that reel, too. Balances right above where the spool would be under the rod. This has got to be the best balanced rod I h...

Re: Steez AGS rod

I just received my AGS yesterday and I have to say, it does indeed "float" in my hands. This is an incredibly light rod. I can't wait to try it out this weekend!

Re: New GLX rods

Hey Gary,

There are 3 2-power rods. The 842 MBR and the 852 and 892 in JWR. How do these rods compare? I really don't know much about the difference between the MBR and JWR series.

Thanks!

Re: New St Croix Legend Elite

I was just wondering, but when Cal did his review on the EC70MF, the ratings were listed as 3/16 - 5/8, 6-12lb. I can even see the "6-12" on the rod in one of the pics. But on the web page, the EC70MF is 1/4 - 5/8, 10-17lb. Is Cal's version still to come or was it a rod that got mislabeled...

Re: Powell frog rod?

I think Powell still makes an excellent frog rod. I don't have the Max 3D rods, but I still use 2 of the original Max rods for frogging. With all the new rods hitting the market at low prices, the Powell has been overshadowed. But make no mistake, they still make a good product.

Re: Help with jig rod

Thanks for the clarification. Balance is also very important for me. I got the NRX 894 and didn't realize how tip heavy it was. I balanced it with a balancer in the back, but I expected more. It says a lot if you are considering replacing your 853 with an HP (I also have an NRX 893).
