PD Chopper Jig

Does anyone know where I can get some Zappu PD Chopper jigs? Preferably in the U.S.

Thanks,

Re: Frog rod for punch/flip or flip rod for froggin?

If I had to choose a rod for what you want it would be the Rushburn. I have watched so many Youtube clips of that rod being used for flipping, frogging, swimbaits, and even punching. They even pick up 8lb bass and boat flop them. It is the real deal. You don't need 7'10 rods to punch or flip. Jackal...

Re: What setup am I missing?

So do you fish close or do you like making long casts? If you like in close I would recommend a 6'6" rod. However, you can do it with a 7 ft rod too. Get rid of the flipping stick (since you really don't use it much) and the big swimbait setup (because you really didn't say that you are weighti...

Re: What setup am I missing?

My first thoughts are how do you really like to fish? What baits do you throw consistantly that produce for you where you fish? Most of us are not "road warriors" and fish limited bodies of water. We pretty much know what will work and what won't. The 6'6" Med is an excellent choice f...

Re: Coangler Tackle Space?

I have had plenty of non boaters on the back of my boat. I have fished local, in state, and have spent my share on the road. I expect a co-angler to bring his own drinks and food. Be considerate with the food because I don't want to have to spend my evening cleaning up your crumbs out of my boat. An...

Re: Megabass telescopic rod

I have been using a 7'6" telescopic Kistler flipping stick for over 8 yrs. I don't find it unballanced or less sensitive compared to a 1 piece blank. At 4.7 oz. it is lighter than a lot of long rods on the market. I don't miss many fish with it. I have seen and held the 711. The feel of this ro...

Re: Expride reviews/opinions

I got to compare the Adrena and Expride rods a couple of weeks ago. I didn't get to fish them, but I did get them in my hands for inspection. In short, none of these rods are extremely light. My original Kistler LTAs and Helium IIs are much lighter. I guess it is all of this new layering of graphite...

Re: Megabass Punching rod

I finally got to see and hold a Record Breaker 77. I was very impressed with it. It is a beautiful piece of work. It fit comfortably in my hands, and is ballanced well for a flipping stick. I can see where Gary is comming from on it being a good jig rod. The components were straight and lined up. Th...

Re: Weight or Balance..thoughts?

I believe that you should go for both weight and balance also. But if I had to choose it would be weight. When your rod is light then tip heavy doesn't come down to much of a weighted feel. To balance out most rods you have to add a lot of weight. To me weight is weight. Balanced out rods just weigh...

Re: Megabass Punching rod

I don't punch because none of the lakes near my home have any grass. But, they do have log jams. There is a lot of wood that collects in the back of creeks and coves that I flip and pitch into. Much of it is big wood and it stacks in tight. Docks are another big target that I hit. I currently use a ...

Re: Megabass Levante

So how are these rods as far as blank straightness and guide placement? Is everything straight? I went to purchase a XX Spinnerbait Special when they first came out and could not find a straight blank. I looked at 8 different XX blanks and they all were crooked. The guides were put on in a stright l...
