Re: Looking for a MH Spinning Rod w/ Moderate Action...

i havent handled them, and kind of forgot about them, but st croix also has a couple models in their inshore line with moderate actions, forget exactly what powers they come in, but they have a few different price ranges

Re: Looking for a MH Spinning Rod w/ Moderate Action...

i have a couple of the older (pre-2011) st croix legend tournament walleye series MH/Mod rods and they are awesome, they work great for square bills (i usually throw 1.5's on them), and most medium depth cranks, not sure how well they would do with something like a dt16, as i never throw them. i als...

Re: A Good Braid for Spinning Reels...

i have used sufix nanobraid since it was released (in the US anyways) and have had no problems with 6, 8 and 10lb, it casts and handles great, however has very little abrasion resistance. (nanofil was a coily mess when i tried it, and it broke off alot for no reason so i will not try it again) same ...

Some stuff new on digitaka

I was just looking around on digitaka and they have some new stuff up (none has stock yet that I saw). I know some Have been mentioned before, haven’t seen anything on others. New Certate LT. aluminum monocoque in 2500-4000 sizes, under $400, looks pretty appealing! Alphas CT SV, 70 sized Millionair...

Re: Glx or Legend Elite

i didnt have any problems with the XF tip on swimbaits, but i think if i went with a medium over a medium-light, that might be different. i havent used the current gen of the 6'8" mxf, but i had a previous model, and it was faster than the ML by a bit. the 6'10" mlxf i would call more of a...

Re: Glx or Legend Elite

i havent used (or handled) the loomis so i cant comment there, but i have 2 of the LE's and they are awesome, i have never had any problems feeling a bite on them, very sensitive rods. i usually have a 1/8 ned rig on them, but also spent a lot of time throwing a small swimbait (baby rage swimmer, al...

Re: All around spinning rod (NRX v. ST. C LE v MB Add)

the st croix LE 6'10 mlxf is what i would get (in fact i have 2 of them), i dont have any experience with the NRX or addermine. the 6'10 mlxf is definitely between the mlf and mf st croixs, and makes for a great all around spinning rod. other than crank baits and very light "ned rigs" i us...

Re: 18' Steez Type-2 or 16' Vanquish C2500xxx

Are there any differences between the 17 and 18 models with the Steez lineup? I lost my handle on my old Steez spinning reel and considering the cost it might be worth it to just get a new reel. as far as i know the 17 models were the high speed gear ratios, 6.x:1 while the 18 models were the norma...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

Nothing to do with the panfish rods, but, with the 6’3” mlxf I landed a 40”, 45+ lb flathead catfish yesterday, with a 2018 Daiwa steez type 2, 6 lb j-braid x8 and a 8lb floro leader, it took about 20 mins, every time I got it near the boat it took off again. Rod handled it in stride, not a super po...

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

I used the 6’3” mlxf legend elite this morning for some smallie fishing with a 1/16 jig and either a 2” Senko or a baby rage craw (a lot of the time bitten down). Felt great, sensitivity with this rod in my hands is awesome, it cast the 2” Senko well.


Can’t wait for the 6’4” panfish version!

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

loving these, not crazy about the reel seat but not a deal breaker, those guides are killer. i have 3 of the regular legend elites (2 6'10" mlxf and a 6'3" mlxf) and love these rods. ill likely add either the 6'4" LXF or the 6'9" LXF. I've looked at St. Croix for an extra Light ...

Re: Backing for braid on spinning reels?

for me it depends on the spool depth, on a deep spool, i use cheap mono (the cajun red stuff works good, stands out against the braid). for shallow spools i use electrical tape, just tie my knot directly to the spool, then a wrap of tape, then continue spooling the line. works great and have had no ...

Re: Roboworm Ned Worms

i got to use these for the first time this past weekend, and they catch fish for sure, great colors, cast very well. did pretty well on the smallies, no giants but a few nice ones (with a couple walleyes thrown in) they dont have much durability, didnt have a fish throw one, so i could bite them dow...
