Re: Most sensitive JDM rod for crappie?

Alphahawk, on digitaka, the IC 69F Sis is out of stock. What do you think of the IC-69F or IC-69S? I know the F version is the finesse and the P is the power, but I'm not sure how that actually plays out in the rod.

Thanks

Re: Most sensitive JDM rod for crappie?

Thank you for the information Alphahawk! The price isn't too bad...I was looking at an Evergreen that is listed at $600 lol. I'm going to take a look at the ice cube. Seems you are the resident expert!

Craigthor, thanks for the stateside link. I'll check it out.

Much appreciated everyone!

Re: Most sensitive JDM rod for crappie?

Is this the panfish series or the legend panfish series? The legend series are about $370 and are a new series.

Which web sites do you recommend I check out to source these rods?

Thanks!

I originally posted this in the rods section, but someone suggested I would also get valuable feed back here.

Re: Most sensitive JDM rod for crappie?

Thanks for the suggestions. I actually found some old posts from Alphahawk on a crappie board. The wallet's already light, but hey, when you play with fire, you will be burned! Sometimes I think I don't need the high end stuff, but I hate being outgunned and also, they're just really nice to look at...

Happy New Year everyone! I was wondering if anyone has any opinions on the most sensitive JDM rod that is out there. I know sensitivity is very subjective, but just wanted to get some ideas of what is available. I'm looking for a dedicated rod for winter crappie and was looking at a St Croix Legend ...

Re: Bass spinning rods for rock fishing, is that possible?

Hi Wirinhar, You will have no problem using bass spinning gear in saltwater. I live in California and I rockfish with light gear all the time. I use 7' rods rated only 6-12lb and catch plenty of rockfish and the occasional ling cod! I use braid (10lb up to 20 lb) with a fluorocarbon leader and 60 - ...

Omen Green 72H Spinning

I was looking at the Omen Green 72H spinning for some heavier duty freshwater fishing...like frogs and spider jigs. Could this rod handle it? Just curious.

Thanks

Re: Looking for first megabass rod please help

What knot have you been using on the super slick? I've been using super slick for many years now and have had no issues with knots. I use braid in the ocean and the fish there run much larger than bass lol. Try using the FG knot. I use 30lb super slick to 20lb fluoro. Of course the knot has to be ti...

Re: G Loomis nrx

I too fish the delta and the 893 is my senko rod. I have not lost a fish due to break offs. I use 15lb fluoro and wacky senko. You will not regret getting the rod. I also balance the rod to make it fish better. 893 will handle the light stuff very well.

Re: Advice for a new rod

Thank you all for some ideas. I think the Javelin may be the one I should get. I think there is a Kistler in my future (too many people have said glowing things about it!), but for now, it will be a Javelin. TT crew, you're the best!

Thanks for the suggestion. I'll take a look at it. The ratings look like what I'm looking for.

Advice for a new rod

Hi, On the occasions that I can only bring a few rods, I usually carry a NRX 893 and a NRX 894. I'm looking for a rod that is in between the 893 and the 894. This rod would be an all purpose rod that could handle senkos, yet stout enough to handle 3/4 spider jigs. Any suggestions? The lakes where I ...
