Dobyns 705cb or loomis imx pro 845cbr

As title says, looking at these 2 7’ crankbait Rods. I don’t do a ton of cranking but looking to get a dedicated rod as last year I lost a bunch. Will be throwing lipless rattle traps, shallow diving, generally 9’ and less, squarebill. And hoping to double down this rod for some top water minus frog...

Re: Shimano Chronarch mgl vs diawa zillion sv vs 13 fishing concept c

I don’t know why but the concept C just has my attention every time I go into the local store but I guess I’ll try to keep away from it lol I’ll probsbly try the zillion this time around and maybe swap out my tatula on to a crankbait rod I’m debating on grabbing and then try the Chronarch on the dob...

Re: Shimano Chronarch mgl vs diawa zillion sv vs 13 fishing concept c

Hahaha it’s sometimes too hard to make the decision. I did the same thing earlier this year between the Curado and the tatula and ended up with both. Well I have been debating on grabbing a crankbait rod as well so maybe I could try both. Any thoughts on the concept C though? the 13 is not in the s...

Shimano Chronarch mgl vs diawa zillion sv vs 13 fishing concept c

Looking at getting one of these reels in a 7.3 range. Love the look and feel of the concept c but hard to turn away from 2 tried and true performers. What’s your thoughts?

Will be sitting on a 7’ medium heavy fast action Kistler helium LTA rated for 1/8oz-3/4oz lures

Re: Why no love for the E6X?

I guess I’ll have to try a higher end loomis cause from what I’ve seen I seem to really like the e6x. The sensitivity seems awesome. I have a few rods to try out this season

Why no love for the E6X?

I’ve read a few times on here, and it seems that’s most people stray others away from the loomis e6x. I picked up a few spinning rods last season, st. Croix avid X and a G Loomis e6x and I love both. But after hearing what some people have said about these rods I’m confused as I feel like it is a we...

Re: Tat SV TW or Curado K?

I just bought one of each and haven’t had a chance to try them on water yet but playing around the house with them I’ll tell you the tatula sv is definitely more user friendly, easier set up and smooth! The Curado seems to cast further but a little more finicky! Both seem awesome and can’t wait to t...

What would you use each rod for?

Stumbled across a good deal and have 2 rods but not sure what line to throw on them and what to use them for exactly. Have a dobyns 734 and a 7’ helium lta Medium Heavy Fast Action. Was planning on using the 734 for my jig rog, but then purchased the helium and I don’t know what I want to use either...

Re: Opportunity for a Kistler Helium lta?

I had the 7' Heavy from the same era as yours and it was a very nice rod. I sold it because the grip was so fat that my hand didn't sit right. At the time, I wasnt sure if that rubberized cork could be turned down to be thinner.....I wish I had kept it. That’s too bad, I have a bit of a bigger mitt...

Re: Opportunity for a Kistler Helium lta?

Picked up the Kistler today! Looks to be in perfect shape, almost unused (which is what he had mentioned). Increadibly light, good back bone. Very excited to try this rod out. Like mentioned for 75 dollars probably not to many new rods I’d be able to get to even come close to this. Thanks everyone.

Thank you everyone! Good point I didn’t look at it that way, I’ll try and pick up this rod

Re: Opportunity for a Kistler Helium lta?

If I’m not mistaken then it’s probably the in between. So is it worth the 75 dollars. Like I said a new helium is about 419.99

Opportunity for a Kistler Helium lta?

Wondering if you guys think it’s worrh it? I know there older rods but I’m not sure if it’s a fair price. It’s a friend of friends rod. I’m great shape. It’s was produced in the later years of production on these rods. He’s asking 75 dollars for it. It’s a 7’ Medium Heavy Fast Action 1/8-3/4 lure ra...

Re: New Senko/Neko Rod

I picked up a few new spinning rods last season and played a lot with a 5” senko. Both rods were fantastic to use. First was a rod I bought primarily for walleye, 6’6” g. Loomis e6x med fast paired with a Stradic CI4 + and second is a st. Croix Avid x 7’ med fast action paired with a shimano nasci. ...
