Re: Black Jungle 7'4" Power Versatile

I know it’s probaby not the ideal rod but could I get away using PV with Huddleston 68’s because I don’t do enough larger Swimbait fishing to warrant a rod for single hook and treble hook. Or is there a better rod in the megabass line up for trebles in the 1-2.5 oz range and single hook soft Swimbai...

Re: Over-Braked Daiwa's

I bought 4 tatula’s. 2 8:1, 1 7:3, and 1 6:3 and the only one I felt didn’t feel over braked was the 6:3. Not sure why the 6:3 cast better but i sold the other 3. I have SV103 and sv105 and the both cast better than the tat.

Re: Knot question

If you leave yourself a nice tag end of leader I find you can get it to grab every time. I clinch the braid in my teeth and do the wraps with the leader, seems to work best for me.

Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

There is a shimano poison adrena 7 ft 4 swimbait rod on ebay that is rated 1-4 oz that may fit the bill for your 2.5 oz baits. Power vesitile is way to go if you have the coin.

Re: Any braids better than Daiwa Samurai?

The new spiderwire smooth is really strong line. It is impossible to break 50lb when hung. It is a little on the thick side as far as braid goes but its smooth and quite. Probably because it's abs is close to 80lbs Daiwas j braid 50 breaks at 76 when I use a pr knot Makes sense, I had a frog hung i...

Re: XX PP for small swimbaits?

I don't have experience with the rod but the hyuga 7'2 h has been talked about on this site as being very similar to the destruction and the power versatile has been recommended for your techniques listed.

Re: Light line leader connection

I have found when using the FG knot and smaller diameter lines you just need to make 6 or 8 more wraps than you would with larger lines. I have also found that if you grab main line with your teeth and put tension on line by putting rod where it wont move and wrap the leader instead of the braid it ...

Re: best topwater frogs

Snag proof bobby's perfect fro in cicada is hands down the best for me. I caught back to back 5 pounders. The hooks spin upside down on hookset and the bass can't leverage itself off. They also don't take on water and have a rattle.

Not sure about the nrx comparison but from what I've heard the destroyer Black jungle power versatile could be a good option for your swimbaits!!!

Mine balances right at the fore grip with a tatula sv on it. From what I have heard the whole series is very well balanced.

Re: Megabass Levante

I have levante flat side special and I really like it for mid range cranks. I also have orochi xx perfect pitch which is a sweet rod for pitching, bottom contact as well as frogs. If you can swing the extra $100 I would advise you to go with the orochi xx line for anything bottom contact and levante...
