Re: Show off your stuff

Hard to follow up a boat haha. Nice rig and gear guys! This fall I decided to sell off some older gear and replace it with new equipment. First upgrade was not needed but a bit of a impulse but after fishing and selling the Calcutta Conquest 100's I really missed having a high end 5 gear Shimano. Th...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

More Shimano goodies! Picked up 3 of the Curado K 200XG's for my Spinnerbait/Swimbait/& Frog rods! Very impressed with how well the 70XG's held up last year and the previous fall. These feel wicked smooth and are going to fit in my lineup nicely. They even match the Expride's a little with the g...

Beyond excited can't wait to fish it. Little bigger than Calcutta Conquest 100's that I fished prior but has a sleek feel and palms nicely. Should be fun with those 1/2-7/8oz plug's I plan on throwing.

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Thanks for the reply, the Aldebaran interests me because of the extremely light spool. I love my Chronarch MGL but the more I use it I understand it can't go as light as the Zillion SV's I have. I do really enjoy my first Shimano though and the light weight capability of the Aldebaran interests me....

Re: Where are the shimanos?

How have those Aldebaran's held up??? Been considering one of them versus a Metanium MGL JDM, just not as much feedback as I expected on the Aldebaran. The Aldebaran has held up great. I do a basic oil and outer cleaning each season. Nothing internal. We fished them hard pitching plastics and winch...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

I really like the 6'10 medium adrena too. The tip is perfect and its so light for one hand slinging. I agree i use em as twitching rods one for jerk bait's the other for small spook style topwater (Dog-X Speed Slide). Handle smallies, largemouth, treble hooks and both mono/fluoro lines well. I'm in...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Added a third Shimano Poison Adrena to the arsenal this morning, thanks again to a good friend of mine. I absolutely love the accuracy and light weight the pair of 6'10" Mediums have gave me the last 2 seasons now. The third addition is the 7'4" Ex-Heavy. The action isn't labelled on the r...

Re: How many Shimano Antares do you own?

Finally took the plunge and purchased the Antares 100 to go on my G.Loomis CBR958C DD Crankbait stick. Feels beautiful, the Calcutta Conquest 100 was a wicked reel and sold it needed some cash replaced it with the Curado 200I PG. Curado was nice but that's sold too so can't wait to get some time in ...
