Re: Any florida peeps going to I cast?

ICast unfortunately isn't open to the public. It is for representatives of retailers, the press, and those that work in the industry/manufacturers.

Re: New Zillion - We want info!

Do you all think Daiwa has been paying attention to how Shimano has handled the new Curado I roll out? Look at the saying on the bottom of the ad, "When your customers ask, be sure you've got Zillions in stock!". Looks like a small jab at the competition. :lol:

Re: New IMX

I don't have that particular model, but I do have the 822s SHR IMX. It's not as sensitive as a GLX or NRX, but it has a much more crisp feeling than my older Gloomis blended SHR and is noticeably a more powerful rod. The sensitivity isn't as pronounced over the older SHR rod as I was hoping for, but...

Re: Shimano Pitching/Punching/frogging Reels

I would get the Metanium. The X-ship reels are smooth and powerful under load. I would also get the 8.5:1…the extra speed is perfect for those techniques to get the bait back to you quickly…or a fish out of cover fast…plus it has a longer handle than the two slower speeds. The only reason I chose t...

Re: lucky craft skt mr and dr compair to the rc1.5 and 1.5d

The SKT MR and DR are not as round as the RC 1.5's. They have a more flat sided body if you're comparing those two. Also, the skeet has a much tighter wobble when being reeled in. I like using them when fishing stained or colder water when you need a different type of action. SKT MR/RC 1.5 rsz_21pho...

I think he's saying the Sol has a TDZ handle, not a TDZ reel. I'd keep the steez and put a SV spool in it.

Re: Megabass Orochi XX do it all or most?

Would the EMTF be a good choice if I also did some light flipping with 1/2 to 3/4oz lures around moderate to heavy cover? I rarely get into anything too heavy. I had a 734 Powell Max that did really well for lots of things, but I'm not sure I'd consider it a true heavy/4 power. I'd look at the tour...

Thumb bar and shape around the t-wing looks like a tatula, just with more cut outs.

Re: KVD 1.5's and Traps (1/4) rod

For the baits that you're describing, I recommend the Dobyns 704CB. That's the rod I'm using right now for my squarebills and mid depth diving crankbaits.
