Re: NRX 9th Year at ICast 2019 / Revamp?

I wouldn't mind a NRX954C FPR :D 7'11 Heavy Punch rod like the GLX would be so nice.

Got my second Conquest 905C this past week, extremely excited. 1)65lb MaxCuatro-Deep weedlines anywhere from 7-12' sometimes 14 and 15' depending on t...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Something about these combos I love! Great reels the Curado K 200XG's are I've used them on older Expride's & a Curado rod, they fished a variety of techniques very well last year for me but this new frog rod I went for is going to be fun to use in the heavy slop and duckweed.

Re: Conquest 905C Question

From a strictly power perspective, how does the 905c compare to the next 895c? If anyone has experience with both? For being 1" longer with a weight rating being 3oz up from the 1oz rating on the 895 I was impressed this summer overall with the 905C MBR. I owned 2 NRX895C JWR's. Used them for pitch...

Re: New Antares MGL

I'm excited to try one, not sure if I can swing it with all the other gear I'm getting this spring but for sure next year it's on the wish list :D

Re: best bass of 2018

Only got away for 2 vacations this past summer in June we were lucky enough to get a beautiful 5lb 3oz Largemouth and on my August trip I got one a little longer in size that went 5lbs 14oz! Overall I was happy looking for that 6lb+ fish or twice as many 5's next year! G.Loomis Conquest 905C MBR/Met...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Punched slop last summer with a Curado 7'7 Heavy used the NRX916UBR before that finally got the rod I've always wanted to get for the technique. GLX954C FPR am I ever glad I did. Very light rod at 7'11 the extra length for working the bait up and down as well as the leverage when punching a little f...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

6'6ML that picture. I ran two of the 6'10M Poison's last summer, one for Vision 100 (10lb Fluoro) the other for Dog-X Speed Slide (15lb Mono). Caught lot's of fish still bent the odd treble on the Jerkbait setup so grabbed this softer 6'6" Medium Light Poison Adrena. It bends similarly to the XX Oro...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Didn't plan to obtain a Aldebaran MGL this summer but I'm glad I got one now! Love the tweaked paint job and MGL treatment. Spooled up some 8lb Mono for play sake and was casting more than half the spool off 100' casts across the street no problem :lol: I've used Aldebaran for 10lb Fluoro and the th...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Went away on a weeks holiday with a friend earlier last month. Got a new PB for the lake on my favourite rod quality fish all week just not many giants. 5lbs 14oz Long and skinny but what a hard fighting fish.

Re: Disturbing discovery - Poison Adrena 7'4" Heavy

I'll keep a eye on my 7'4 Poison so far have not seen this on any Poison Adrenas. I'm fishing all week next week will inspect them in the light a little more, my NRX's did this quite bad. They still bend hard just had those bubbles all over them.

Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

When I joined the forum 4 or 5 years ago maybe more I found I was "going back in time" on the Shimano stuff. Seeking out Chronarch 100D7's Chronarch MG's Holding onto Core's after Metanium was released, old Stella's etc. Once I got a Exsence DC and felt a little more speed with a 8.0:1 gear ratio my...
