Re: How do you define your enthusiasm?

unless you spend more than you can afford, youre not an enthusiast. ;)

$300 JDM reels and $350+ rods is where id prob put the line. you can fish quality combos for less but life is short.

Re: MegabassOrochi Diablo Uses

DSR is a great rod. i like it mostly for single hook moving baits around 1/2oz, lipless and "moving" top water as opposed to walking. loads up and casts the small whopper plopper a mile.

ive never fished a frog with the rod but i dont think it would lack in power when fishing them in light grass.

Re: How many rods?

if overhanging trees will be an issue i take 3 rods. on scotty holders at an angle, 1 in the front and two behind. if its an open area i will take up to five. usually 3 verticle and two in the scotty holders. 4 is a good compromise IMO. what rods i bring depends on the body of water and what i feel ...

Re: Destroyer USA Oneten special

i hope someone with more time with the rod than i have can answer your specific questions. i have only thrown walking topwater on the rod and it has been great for that. great for making roll casts. its a 7 foot rod north of the reel seat. balances very well - i have a Metanium on it currently. the ...

Re: Whose on top!

ha! its pretty hard to flip those things, you gotta really try or get into a hairy situation... there are only 2 lakes i would spend time throwing small hard swimbaits in my area (if you call a 2 hr drive "my area") and we usually bring a boat on those lakes. ive done 4oz+ in the bay on a kayak and ...

Re: Megabass Carbon Head Destroyer

thanks, Gary. i thought the older version was faster for some reason.

do you think the Faust would be a good choice for 1-1.5oz swimbaits and frogs or is it better suited for jig/worm?

Re: megabass destroyer Daemos

never fished the Javelin but im almost certain that the Daemos is faster. Its faster than the XX Diablo Spec R. More suited for single hook moving baits than trebles. i enjoy using the Daemos for t-rig, med jigs and larger weightless plastics.

Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

It’s incredible. had the mephisto at my house for a about a month. felt so good in my hands but i could not deal with the claw. they way i palm the reel, i could not get comfortable. the rod felt so good that i looked into changing out...

Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

hey gary, have you fished the carbon head faust? was thinking that might work for the small bullshad and some bbz-1 rats. looks slow and long enough on paper.

also, can you add me to your list for a X4 Destruction? ;)

Re: must have megabass rods?

i dont have much experience with older MB to say what is a must have but out of about 10 or so MB rods ive fished, the X4 Destruction (all 15 mins i had with it), Hein, FMJ and Daemos stand out.

tempted to grab a XX PP on sale for dedicated frogging and a Javelin at some point
