Re: Tatula Elite AGS M/MH for Jerkbait?

The M/MH is a little on the stiffer side for a M/MH it is great for bottom contact and I do use it for flukes but with hard jerkbaits and I can see pulling the trebles might be an issue. I use the Steez XT M for my jerkbaits and it is awesome for reaction baits.

Re: Evergreen 7'11" Combat Stick

Thanks for the input. I just picked up the 7'11" and really like the feel of it. Gonna pair it with a Zillion 9:1 to see how it works out. If I don't like the 9:1 on it I will put a Zillion SV TW on it.

Evergreen 7'11" Combat Stick

Anyone fish this rod? I was checking it out last week and it seems like a pretty good rod for picthin and flippin. The chatterbait rod felt nice too.

Please don't tell me about other rods as in true TT fashion. I only want to know about the Combat Sticks.

Re: What rods do you thinks we'll see debut at the Classic?

More and more companies are releasing new products at the classic. One big plus is when they do they are usually up for sale then. I believe Daiwa is releasing the new Tatula 150 along with some new rods. I wonder if it an upgraded Zillion or a whole new line of rods since the Zillions is no longer ...

Re: Daiwa Zillion Rods Discontinued?!?

They just released the Saltist back bay and today they released the updated BG spinning reel. Saying they are the next generation. Leaner and meaner from a 1500 size to 8000 size. Lighter in weight is what they are saying.

On IG they announced the new Proteus WN rods and new look VIP Boat rods.

Re: Zillion Jerbait Rod (7' ML)

It is a great rod for jerkbaits, topwater, small swimbaits and squarebills.

Daiwa has removed the Zillion line from their website so they may be discontinued or are being revamped. They plan on releasing new products at the classic.

Re: Best Bottom Contact Rod From Daiwa nonjdm

There is no way on earth the Light & Tough is better than the Steez. I have been fishing Daiwa for years and the Steez is an awesome rod. I'm mainly a bottom contact fisherman and I have fished lots of rods and the Steez is one of the best rods I've ever fished. We all have our preferences but t...

Re: Jighead Underspins with Gama or Owner hook

Osprey Tackle company uses Gami hooks. I have not tried their baits but I do know the use the Gami hook.
Most use the Mustad hook which happens to be a really good hook.

Re: Best Bottom Contact Rod From Daiwa nonjdm

I have the 7'1"H in both AGS and standard Steez. The AGS is a little lighter and a more sensitive but even the regular Steez I use for bottom contact baits with plenty of feel. My next order is the Steez MH along with the 7'6"ML AGS in the spinning.

Re: Rod and reel storage in between trips

When I get home I take my reels off put them in reel covers and they get put in a drawer. I do this every trip. My combos do not stay together unless I have one I use to fish a local pond.
