I didn't like my Jackson rod either.
Looks sweet with the Zonda hedgehog but it’s dead feeling. I have recently caught a few off beds with a trd and I set the hook when I saw the fish swim away cause I never felt a thing.

Steez racing design guys

I'm looking to replace my 6'8 Jackson super trickster pp finesse with a racing design for Ned's and shakeyheads as I feel my current rod is lacking greatly in the sensitivity department. My question is do I want the 6'8 or the 6'10. I believe the 6'8 is a medium and the 6'10 is a medium light, but t...

Re: Megabass Valkyrie Rods

Got out on the water with 6’11 mh Valkyrie today, the rod is very nice. I only fished it with a 3/8 jig with a Flappin hog trailer but I did catch 5 with it. Nothing big but the rod is very sensitive and has a sweet taper to it. With a zillion sv the rod balances under the reel. Anyone looking for a...

Re: Megabass Valkyrie Rods

Just had Valkyrie 6'11 mh show up yesterday. The rod looks beautiful. Balance's right on the front of the locknut with the but in the standard setting. I was a little nervous with the weight because specs say it is a 197g but it certainly doesn't feel like that at all. Hopefully I can get it on the...

Re: Expride Med

I have 6'10 med expride 1st gen and it is excellent for jerkbaits. I wonder if the 2 gen is a lot different from first. The price for the 1st gen 6'10m was 349 about 90 more then the 2nd gen. The only 2nd gen's that cost that much are the 9ft rods.

Re: MLF/BPT opinion

I feel like there is not easy access to watch or follow bpt. Haven’t payed one bit of attention to it. I also don’t like the format, so I just started to follow the new guys as I find the elite series and flw more interesting.

Re: What are your thoughts and experiences

I typically don’t use a jerk bait year round more spring and fall so you may be able to get away with the right rod for jerkbait and topwater. The expide would fit the bill and I have always heard great things about the Jdm destroyer hein. For Texas rigs I would look at the fmj first. If you want a ...

Re: What are your thoughts and experiences

F6-611 Mat Bucker and the . F5-610 Chimaera Anyone have either of these two rods? looking for some real time feedback I have the chimaera what would you like to know?

Re: Gear ratio: 8 VS 7?

I always say use whats more comfortable to you. As for ratio, IPT should be what you are looking at. One reels 6 speed may just be as fast as anothers 7 speed, and on and on. So, there are the people that prefer fast or slow reels for certain applications. If Im swimming baits, I prefer something a...
