Re: Daiwa SV103 or 50th Anniversary opinions

I have both. If your keeping them stock, than I would go with the SV103. If you can find a TDZ 100M spool to put in the 50th, that would make the choice harder.

Re: Which 12 pound fluro to get?

I use sniper fc and invisix on my moving rigs.  But for my more finesse rig I want the absolute 'best' FC line.  What I am hearing so far is: * Tatsu: very good manageability, has some stretch (less thatn Invisix?!)  * Shooter: not as good in manageability as Tatsu but is more sensitive Thoughts? I...

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX snapped

I had a similiar issue with the of my replacements and decided to wait. If it's a rod you really like, I say wait. If not, go for the upgrade.

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX snapped

Hit up Gary, I'm sure he'll take care of you X2 X3. Gary will let you know who to get a hold of. I never had a warranty problem with a MB rod purchased through Tackle Trap that is less than 1 year old. I broke an X4 Black Elseil and had a destruction with a lock down nut that came unglued. Both wer...

Re: Alphabrake - New Kind of Braking?

Yea, Abu produced an anti-backlash reel. Designated as 5600AB. The fishing line was threaded through a spring loaded leaver (flap). When line went slack during cast (backlash potential) the released load on the line would allow the leaver to raise, applying a friction brake to the spool. It was a m...

Re: Jackall or Robo plastics for drop shot

I use both and generally catch more fish on the Alive Shad vs the Cross Tail. Of course, there are some days when the reverse is true, which is why I carry both.

Check out FlatlandsCustomTackle.com
I am not affiliated in any way. I had him make some custom hand tied jigs for me last year and really like his work. I think he could get you what you want.

Re: Chatterbait rod

I have been using a MB X4 Destruction for a few years now and love it for 1/2 oz chatterbaits and 65lb braid. I know its no longer made so I dread the day something happens to it. This is what I've used too. Works great, but I'm a chatterbait rookie so don't know if a faster or slower action rod wo...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

I owned a xxx Rattle Viper for a season. I liked the rod a lot but the reel seat didn't work for me. It was the most uncomfortable trigger I have ever used. I sold the rod this winter because of it. I was afraid MB was going to use it on the new xx. Unfortunaly, this is a deal breaker for me. Hopefu...

Don't feed the troll! To give my input on the original question posted, I just ordered and received a JDM Steez TW1012SVXH. The reasons I went with the JDM version is: 1. I wanted the higher gear ratio not offered in USDM 2. I wanted purple highlights to match a custom I've having built 3. I will b...
