Mid to high end drop shot rod?

Looking to add a good spinning rod for finesse and dropshot. I use my glx 852c for shakey heads, finesse jigs, flukes and senko’s, and use a 7’ 2 piece avid x spinning rod for my back ponds hard to get into, but would like to add a good 1 piece for the boat as we are fishing a ton more off the boat....

Re: Concept C worth the $?

I was in the same boat. Everytime I walked into the store I couldn’t help but pick it up and play with it but kept buying s different reel. Eventually I finally did it and purchased the c. I throw it on my imx pro 845c cbr. To start it feels amazing, looks amazing, palms amazing and out of the box f...

Re: What’s a decent 2 piece rod?

St. Croix (big name in Canada eh) has a 7ft.1 MH 2 peice casting rod in the Mojo series. It's a moderatly priced rod at $140 and can be had from many major outlets and seems to have good reviews. If you want to spend some coin, I have some suggestions for that as well. I was looking into the premie...

What’s a decent 2 piece rod?

So my dad likes to bring his 2 piece casting rod on our annual fishing trip and annual moose hunting trip to our hunting camp. With the amount of gear we bring the rods need to be 2 piece. Well he snapped it this year accidentally and now I was thinking of replacing it for his birthday. I do...

Re: What to add to the arsenal?

Nrx 893 w/o a doubt, pretty sure it’ll become your favorite rod. That’s what happened to me once I got that model & I think I had 3 other nrx rods at the time I’m just waiting for one to go on sale or a good used one to come up. I am itching to get this rod but I feel like I might be waiting a whil...

Hands down. I can say enough about them
Which kistler do you think would fit in there nicely. My kistler is an older helium lta and might be going to a buddy that’s why I was debating the mbr 842/843

Re: Metanium worth the extra cost?

Thanks everyone, I’m pretty set on grabbing a met mgl to try for myself and compare first hand the chronarch mgl and the met mgl. I believe I’ll throw it on my glx 894c. I’m also in the market for an nrx or glx 893 which I might pair it with the met and leave the 894 with the chronarch to test. sou...

I’ve got both the tatula sv and curado K and I’d pick the curado for a frogging reel personally!

Re: Metanium worth the extra cost?

I would get a Bantam MGL for the 894 and an Aldebaran MGL for the 842. Both of these reels should balance those rods perfectly and fish better than the Met. Why do you say they would fish better then a met? I’ve heard really mixed reviews on the aldebaran h50/51 and nothing on the mgl version so I ...

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

13 fishing envy black 7’6” with a curado K! Wicked set up. My only 13 rod and it’s awesome! Super sensitive and loads of power! Doesn’t get much use cause I throw a lot on my glx 894c. Thinking of just leaving a t-rigged creature on there this year and the fox as my jig rod
