Re: TW/Daiwa chatterbait rod

Yea, I have the 7'2"MH glass Tat also, along with the 7'7"M-G. They are noticeably heavier than my Seeker & Lamiglas glass rods, but I do like their actions. I'm thinking the full grip would balance the TW rod better, but I'd hate to buy one and find out out it weighs 6.5- 7oz.

TW/Daiwa chatterbait rod

Does anyone own the TW chatterbait rod? Curious as to your thoughts on it. Is it stupid/cumbersome heavy in weight? I'm actually looking at it for Ploppers. Currently I'm using an old, wore out 7'2" MH Seeker S-Glass along with braid, but unfortunately the finish has come off a 1/3 of the rod a...

Re: Bass/FLW/MLF

MLF is angler owned and looking to become THE big dog with the biggest names fishing it exclusively. Johnny Morris is supposedly dropping some serious cash into it to have bigger paydays with less money invested by the anglers.

Zodias glass rod action

I've been eyeballing the 7'6" MH Zodias glass for a while and I was curious what kind of action it had. Is it just a more parabolic graphite rod with a mix of glass or is it 1/2-1/3 glass with a graphite butt section, similar to the Glatech stuff from Daiwa? I had an old Crucial crankbait rod t...

Re: PFD Inflatable

Mustang HIT. It's comfortable and I hope it works if the need arises. My Dad has a few non-HIT inflatables and all have discharged at one time or another from getting too wet or damp in a locker.
Unfortunately it's time to replace the one I have, as it's becoming quite worn.

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.
