Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

My Shimano & Daiwa 7ish:1 reels feel noticeably more powerful than my Gen2 Revo 7:1. I have Gen1 & 2 SX's and Premiers and they are backup duty only. I'm tired of trying to keep the clutch working properly. I believe all of mine have needed a pawl replaced at some point. Just too many issues...

Re: Quantum reels

I bought a couple Quantums back in the day and they just didn't last. Neither lasted a year.
I'm not willing to let go of any more of my hard earned money to try them again.
I seriously doubt they have anything that is better than the offerings from Shimano and Daiwa.

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Braillist- what an ingenious name! Great looking rods.
I may only have one XX in my lineup at this time, but it looks like I will have to get more.

Re: Legend Glass vs. Lunkerstik

Pretty sure the old Fenwick glass rods were E-glass while the newer Fenglass rods are S-glass like the St Croix's. I'd be curious also, as I still use old custom Lamiglas E-glass and Seeker S-glass rods. I'd really like to know their weights. I've fished with some glass rods that were quite heavy an...

Re: Best rod for Whopper Plopper (sizes 110 and 130)

My favorite rod for the ploppers is a 7'2" MH Swampland (Seeker) S-glass. I use 30lb braid and can flat out fling those baits a mile while still having the grunt to plant the hooks and still have the soft tip to keep the fish pinned. I've tried throwing them on heavier fast action graphite rods...

Re: I don't understand Enigma Rods

Skeet Reese has made an absolute fortune off the W&M rods, so I'm sure A-Mart thought he could too.
Other than the "pro staff" discount folks, I don't know anyone who owns the Enigmas.

Re: Lucky Craft Gunfish 95

It's my favorite walking bait in calmer conditions. I've caught a ton of fish on them through the years.
It casts well and walks easily.

Re: If you could have only one crankbait...

No contest- Yozuri Rattlin Vibe. Whether the water temp is 35 or 95, it will catch fish.

Re: Spybaiting - who's been successful with it?

It's been a key bait every vacation trip to N. Michigan the last 3 years. It's a great bait for covering water much in the same manner that I use a trap here in OK. My Dad put a 5.86 smallie in the boat on one this year and it put a lot of 1-3lb fish in the boat. Here at home I have had a few good d...

Re: The Wife's Combo

My wife loves to go fishing so I got a few setups just for her. Custom Phenix UMBX 7'3" MH w/ red Winn Grips and a Scorpion 201 for bottom contact baits. Powell Endurance 723 Composite with a Curado 201E for cranks. Abu Ike 7' M with a Daiwa Emeraldas MX 2508H for lighter stuff. (Beautiful comb...

I've heard Z was dropped by Shimano/G. Loomis, so he went to Daiwa.

Re: 13 Fishing Concept Z

Polymer bearings- plastic bushings. I'm shocked they would work better than ball bearings, but some googling revealed they are used quite a bit in industrial applications in place of ball bearings. As far as the anti reverse, they are roller bearings not ball bearings, so technically they could say ...
