Re: 1/3 the Price Off

Steez Bottom Contact. I've been eying a new jig rod for quite some time...this one looks like it could be the one except for that steep price tag.

Re: Dobyns rods 40% off on Sportsmans Outfitters

So I'm assuming a lot of guys must have gotten an Xtasy? How does everyone feel about them???

Re: Powell VS Dobyns

I have a Champion 705, and it's not whippy enough for me to use for skipping. I wouldn't imagine that the Extreme or Xtasy are any better...

Re: GLX 855 JWR Info

Thank you very much sir! It does appear to be more tip heavy than I'm comfortable with--a big reason why the Powell rods were sold off so quickly back in the day. Looks like this might not be the answer for me then.

Thanks again!

Re: GLX 855 JWR Info

Could you post a picture of the balance point? I'm really interested in this rod for fishing the CA Delta, but balance is a huge factor for me.

Will this price increase fix the bad thread work, epoxy and crap build quality?

Re: Spiderwire Ultra Cast

This is my favorite braid. It's a little stiffer than Daiwa Samurai, and handles just as well.

My top braid choices:
1) Spiderwire Ultracast
2) Daiwa Samurai
3) Sufix Performance

Re: Dobyns 742c vs 742sf HP

I agree that the casting model is slightly more powerful...I would say about half a power more. It's hard to tell though because of the nature of casting vs spinning.

Re: Bass Fishing Bycatches

Lake Alamo is a small Arizona lake in the middle of nowhere. It was famous for 100 fish days in the 80's. The 4" ringworm was the overwhelming bait of choice there during that time. I fished my first club tournament there in 1988. I broke off a nice fish on a a rock pile fishing a motor oil with ch...

Re: Airrus Stargate - Foregrip problem

That. Looks. Bad. I don't have any nicer way to put it other than it looks bad...I wouldn't want to fish it because that would start to hurt! Have you tried contacting Airrus yet?? I really do wonder if it's just a defect that went out...

Re: EDGE RODS by Gary Loomis?

I know I mention Dobyns a lot here on this forum. I am not a pro staff for them or have any connections to them. But you should defiantly Give them a try. I fish gloomis, shimano, Dobyns, cousins tackle, st croix and a few others. Personally, Dobyns make great rods for the price, I have their low e...

Re: EDGE RODS by Gary Loomis?

My buddy uses them, he broke 2 out of the 4 in a hook set and had a hard time dealing with customer service. I think this is the norm...they're completely understaffed in customer service from all the stories you hear, and it becomes a nightmare (or test of patience) to deal with them. They're real...
