Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

Another update on SLX XT performance. Caught my first frog fish on it, maybe a pound and a half largemouth, and had to tighten down the drag while pulling the fish through a ton of slop. You really gotta lock it down on the standard SLX too... the minimum drag is actually so little that sometimes i...

Re: Ned head shattered my Expride...

I had a 1/16 oz bullet shaped jig head and 2" keitech tied on and when i tried to pull it free the bait came flying back and hit the rod blank it sounded like a 22 rifle when it hit and i ...

Re: Chronarch MGL interesting story

I have 2 chronarch mgls a hg and xg and to me they're just as good as my metainum mgl hg. Now i got a bantam hg and feel all 3 are in the same league. My chronarch hg has been used for traps and spinnerbaits and is just as smooth as when i first got her

Re: Antares 2019?

Does it feel about the same size as the bantam? Or smaller?

Re: Kistler He3 vs ALX Zolo

I own several of the Zolos and they are great rods. That being said, I have around 20 Kistler KLX and He3 rods and they see a lot more service than the Zolos. They have a lighter and crisper feel to them and are very sensitive (especially the He3s). I also have heard miscellaneous rumblings about t...

Re: Kistler He3 vs ALX Zolo

I have the 6'9" mh h3 and use it for spinnerbaits and love it you just have to let the fish eat the spinnerbait and not take it away from it to fast because it is sensitive and you don't have to hammer them on a hookset just let it load up and sweep like a crankbait. I had the deputy and loved it it...

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano
