Re: New Loomis GLX rods creak when you shake them?

This happened on my 782 GLX spin years ago. Never altered performance but was weird.

Informative reviews on the series Cal. I’ve handled these rods in the store but personally can’t get over the camo EVA.

Re: Simms Challenges the Notion Gore-Tex Is the Only Viable Rain Fabric

Hmm, have you tested anything for rain up to say 80 degrees, with shorts underneath? Nothing worse then having a summer storm roll in and your choices are get wet or sweat. I don’t have any experience with summer temp rain suits, but the brand most often mentioned for those types of conditions are ...

Re: Which G. Loomis GLX Dropshot Rod

I can’t comment about the GLX rods, but i do own a couple NRX 822DSR rods. Besides drop shoting with them, I also use them for darterhead fishing. I like the action of the rods for lightweight open hook techniques.

Re: Bantam1, can we get a flipping reel please?

You're part of a small group that asks for this. The new reels have a two way clutch design on the clutch button. I think this is the direction they want to go since the flipping reels historically were not huge selling reels. The Core 100MGFV was probably the best we ever offered. It lived a short...

Bantam1, can we get a flipping reel please?

Hoping you guys release a flipping and punching reel with Instagage clutch similar to the original Castaic but with today’s lighter/low profile/high speed/more power reel platform.

Thanks in advance!

Rod and reel storage in between trips

Looking for suggestions. Mostly towards reels.... How do you store your rods and reels between long periods of use? Do you just keep on rack and let it gather dust or do you have a storage solution? I’ve seen soft sided Cabelas and BPS reel cases. Ever try those? It doesn’t help that I own more comb...

Re: Looking for a rod that I can use for medium swim and glide baits and heavy flipping

Simple. Kistler MAD 8’ This is the Mark Daniels signature rod. Mark was a local here at the CA Delta prior to moving to AL to chase the BASS tour. It’s designed with a mod fast action which keeps fish buttoned in heavy cover and also aids in casting the baits you listed. If it wasn’t for Mark’s des...
