How does the reel seat feel on the Racing Design? I was checking them out and that was the one thing I wasn't too sure about.

Re: $300 spinning rod for bottom contact techniques

Agree with the St. Croix suggestions however if you want to stay at your budget the Kistler He3s are worth looking into as well.

Re: Sustain FI Question

Thanks, I haven't used the reel yet, it is fresh out of the box. I was wondering if it just needed to be broken in a little and would go away with some use too but not sure if i should risk it.

Re: U40 cork sealer on rubberized cork

I have only been able to fish the rod a couple times but the sealer has held up great. It sticks on there and absorbs/dries just as does on regular cork grips from my experience and is not slick at all. It does darken it a little also as it can on some cork handles. Hope this helps!

Re: Phenix Feather

Picked up the 6'9" MH extra fast casting rod for a do it all rod when fishing with friends and I have only been able to use it once but I really like it. I have heard Phenix rods generally fish lighter/softer than their ratings which was what I was hoping for when I ordered and I think that hol...

Re: G Loomis IMX MBR783C for LC Pointer 100s?

I prefer mh rods for 100 sized jerkbaits because I found I can get more aggressive action out of the baits compared to m powered rods. Used a e6x 783mbr in the past and kind of wished I kept it ](*,)
