Re: Where are the shimanos?

How would you compare the expride vs. your adrena Rods? First off I haven't been able to fish a rod from both lineups in similar length/action. I can say flipping with the 7'3XH Expride vs the 7'4XH PA the Poison had much more feel! That split grip disappears behind you where every other rod I've e...

Re: Deep Cranking/Big Bait Combos

Perfect indeed I just noticed the black matching nicely between both :lol: Fun reel like how it's much more sealed than the Curado. Little more beefy look with the handle. Watched a good tear down between both learned lots

Re: Deep Cranking/Big Bait Combos

My only setup for "big" swimbaits. Just spooled up some Sunline 25lb Assassin FC main 2 baits are the Jackall Gantarel Jr and in lower light conditions I'm going to try the Megabass Big M 4.0 Shimano TranX 200HG/Shimano Poison Adrena 7'4" Ex-Heavy http://i.imgur.com/mjTJg7M.jpg Can't wait to try it!...

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

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: 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...
