Re: Expense and Certate LT

Thanks for the replies and yes I guess the term I’m looking for is the stem length before it curves back.

Expense and Certate LT

Narrowed down to these 2 reels however I am an ergonomic junkie so here’s my question as it will make my choice easier. I own both Daiwa and Shimano spinners however the wife usually ends up with the Shimano for this reason. The distance between the reel foot and where it makes its first curve back ...

Re: Dobyns Xtasy 754 Impressions

IMO I have both the 754 and 755 and definitely would move up to the 755 with jigs or anything 5/8oz. Or so and up. I’ve had both now for about a year and love em. To me me they cast like a fast action but load up a little slower and further down the blank as stated above. I have an original green 87...

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: Light braid

I’m using the YGK G soul SS112. Absolutely the best braid I’ve ever used on a spinnng rod period and That includes Samurai. 16lb is perfect. Never had a wind knot and been using it for over a year now. Extremely smooth casting and do3snt have that wispy feel that I hate. No waxy feel at all.Only one...

Re: Fishing fingers

New skin is what I use. If you don’t have that handy super glue works great but I’m not sure if it’s good to be puttin it on open cuts all the time but works in a pinch

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: No lord, please, not another version of Jack Hammer

Re: Gamma Fluoro and CoPoly

edge is expensive however if line diameter isn’t a factor and you do a lot of flipping or just need the toughest nastiest flours out there. gamma !! It’s pretty brutal especially if your abusive with line it’s waaaay more forgiving.
