Re: Jig Rod Recomendation

What is your budget? A lot will depend on it. I do not do a lot of jig work, but I have been doing a lot of reading to see what rod I would be best served with. On the high end I have narrowed it down to the Megabass FMJ or the NRX 894 or 895. On the more reserved side the Dobyn's Champion 735 witch...

Re: G-Loomis IMX Pro 852c JWR

I don't mind a little flex in my tip. Having said that I think 3/8 would be the upper end.

Re: G-Loomis IMX Pro 852c JWR

I have one and use it for shakey heads, weightless senko's up to 5 inches and going to try it for vision 110 size jerk baits. Sensitivity is real close to the older glx series than the imx .

Re: Gear ratio: 8 VS 7?

I stay with 7 ratio reels mainly. But have purchase a couple of 8 ratio reels lately. Mostly because of the longer handle that they have come with, and thinking I could just get another set of gears if I don't like there higher speed.

Thanks for weighing in guys. I just started to service my own reels and was wondering what others are using.

Re: Jdm Metanium or Chronarch Mgl

Jdm metanium. I had both & even got my chronarch mgl for $220, ended up selling it & getting another metanium. The jdm metanium is the best high end value reel for the price & if you order from japan lure shop, I’ve gotten a free megabass lure each time. Plenty of line capacity Just ordered a JDM M...

You should have made the trip! There was hardly anyone on the lake and the fishing was really good.

Re: What is your prefered reel for jerkbaits

Thanks for the detailed reply Hobie-Wan Kenobi. I have just started jerk bait fishing. I collected around 40 baits over the last year and throwing them on a glx 842 and a gl3 783. I have a few different reels and wanted to get a general consensus as to what people tend to prefer to help me narrow do...

Re: Nice surprise

How many reels does it take before you find reels you didn’t know you had? :lol: Not many if you can't remember what you had for dinner last night! :lol: I didn't want to go for the age jugular, but you did it for us. :) I am super particular about my reels. They get fished for many years. I genera...
