Re: Rods with the 'it' Factor

I’m somewhat of an off shore fisherman so I’m using rods at 7’3” and above pretty exclusively. That being said that 902s conquest for my deep water Shakey heads is just a crazy rod. I use it on almost every trip

A marts reels

Saw some video footage of Arron’s reels most of them metaniums with what looks like over sized drag stars. They look to me like they would be easier to adjust on the fly than stock drag stars. I like everything about them except they are purple. Anyone know what aftermarket brand they are ?

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

I have both Xtasy 754 and 755 great rods. Compared to my buddies 744 champ extreme just a bit more power from a 754 to the 744. I like the f7ll cork handle but I think it’s an option for the 744 as well.

Re: Lost fish therapy

After losing a big fish I always look up and thank the Father for the opportunity.....check my gear and hook closely, retie in most cases and make another cast. Always in that order and usually it pays off with a bigger opportunity later on. Maybe not that same day but most assuredly I’m afforded an...

Re: G Loomis demo rods

How do you know a rod is a demo ? Are they marked in some way? I’ve bought demo rods and reels and haven’t noticed anything.
