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 X...

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...

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 gea...

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

Ran the NRX916 UBR loved it, decided to try the Curado 7'7H F my past trip in June. Caught dozen's of fish it's softer in backbone but kept fish pegged and was just as sensitive. A tick with the NRX felt not much different with the Curado rod. Punching bites are full on pulling rod from hand or a sl...

Conditions looked good, normal water levels, lot's of vegetation temp's were 68-74 95% of the time. However it seemed the fish were a little post spawn this time around, a few re...

Re: 2018 Update! Pic's & Setup's for this summer!

All gone, Core's went when Aldebaran's came out and the D's I replaced with the Curado K's. Think I pitched with those on my 895's at one point they went away and I ran Curado 70XG's for a season. Got rid of those and now we are sitting on what we have now. I want another 905 Conquest/Metanium Setup...
