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.

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. ...

Looking for my first 2 baitcaster!

I’m looking at getting myself my first baitcaster, something to do a little everything thing I guess. Second rod will be for pitching and flipping. I’ve never done it but I’m super intrigued by that style of fishing. First rod I’m looking into getting is a dobyns champion xp 734 sh with a diawa tatu...

Re: First baitcaster. Little advice needed

Thank you everyone for your responses! I'm still so confused on what rod to get!! Between a med/heavy and a heavy. Something rated for up to 1oz or look for something rated more on the 1oz-1 1/2oz. I was able to get my hands on the st. croix legend tournament again and the envy black and really like...

Re: First baitcaster. Little advice needed

Another rod i would recommend and that is below the price of the others you mentioned is the Daiwa Tatula Elite 7'3" MH "All Purpose" rod. They are really good at many things. I have used mine for 1/2oz trigs, jigs, swim jigs, swim baits, spinnerbaits, senkos, finesse jigs, etc... does a lot of thi...

Re: First baitcaster. Little advice needed

I forgot to mention I live in Canada and dobyns are a little harder to find. St. Croix are everywhere and 13 fishing is getting very popular so easy to come by where abouts? Southern Ontario! That's pretty large area. Checkout Pro Js in Scarborough, Gagnons in oshawa, JB in Etobicoke, or Pro Advant...
