Re: Need a rod to match my SV105HS...

Hey, that's a good looking SV105HS..... :D What's your price range on a rod? Yes it is! I bought it off of a pretty cool angler :D Price range would be under $250 ideally. The Megabass Black Themis is right at the top of your range. Its rated 1/8-1/2 and is best in the 3/16-3/8 range. Its very much...

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

If the boat capsizes with people strapped in, the occupants would likely drown. Life jackets are designed to keep heads above water, even if a person is unconscious. That is obvious and I feel dumb for not thinking of it. Hitting a submerged log going 3mph in my kayak is all the excitement I can ta...

Re: What have you lost while fishing?

Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most. :lol: :lol: :lol: But seriously, we hit a wake once back when I was around 12 yrs old and my dad lost ME out of the boat. We were going around 60 mph, so I skipped across the water like a stone. So, I didn't grow up around boats, so maybe this i...

I didn't even think about the handle being longer. In any case, that thing is stunning!

Do aftermarket paint jobs hold up any better the the factory ones?

Re: Nrx or glx

Second one I want to cover the lighter end of the spectrum. I love throwing senko’s like I mentioned, mainly weightless, but occasional 1/8 and 3/16 bullet weights, finesse jigs maybe, smaller paddletails, weightless flukes and stuff. I fish all those lures on a MBR 783 GLX and really love it. My o...

That looks amazing, but somehow it also looks a ton smaller? Maybe it is the less reflective finish, but it really looks tiny!

Re: Show us your Sol

There is also a blue rays studio spool. I am not sure they still make them in blue, I have been checking ebay and aliexpress every month for like six months now and have not seen one in blue for the Alphas or Pixy. What blank is that you're talking about ? I'm asking because I am also looking for a...

Re: Show us your Sol

Ok, I am leaning more and more towards getting on the Sol-train!

Does anyone make a blue colored finesse spool for the Alphas platform?

Re: Show us your Sol

This is a timely thread as I am looking for a orange reel to go on a BFS rod with a royal blue blank. I was looking at an Amber Orange Pixy, but man, some of those Sols are gorgeous looking. Am I right in thinking that they are just an orange, USDM version of the Alphas 103?

Re: Favorite finesse jig trailers

For very small jigs, a Cross Tail Shad makes an interesting trailer. I did it the first time out of desperation, but it has a nice wiggle when hopped and moves in almost any current.

Re: SV103H with upgrades

Amazing looking.

How are you liking the PG spool in your sv103? I am still hunting up the perfect spool(s) for mine and I am really eager to try one, but I waffled too long and now they are out of stock.

Re: Floating S-Waver?

A word to the wise. Use a net to get the bird in the boat, and turn it upside down, so the bird is pinned to the deck. Then you can use a towel to cover the bird, which will calm it, and let you get to the bait or cut your line loose from the bird, without damage to it or you. That was more or less...

Re: G.Loomis's 820S DSR GLX : A Top Notch Performer, but...

Man, that grip/reel seat does look huge when you see it in hand. I have two MagL/XF IMX rods and am really learning to like the taper. I have one in 5'2" and one at 6'. I would love a longer one but am not a fan of any of the Loomis spinning rod seats I have held. I would buy a custom on that b...

Re: Need help ( Bottom contact rod)

I bought an FMJ this spring and so far it has been in my hands maybe half the time I get out fishing, I just can't put it down. Almost every time I go to try a new presentation/lure and am thinking "ok, this is asking too much" the rod surprises me with how versatile it is. If all my gear ...
