Re: Is there a braid better than Spiderwire Ultracast?

I'll be honest, I love ultracast 10lb for my inshore applications but my vain-ass wants to match my line to the blue trim on my new first ever NRX. Is there another braid you guys like as much/more than ultracast, and hopefully something that comes in a nice blue color? Thanks If your looking for s...

Re: Sensitive jig rod

Can't speak to the 74 since I haven't handled it. I got the 72 in today and pitched a jig around my apartment some. Sensitivity is very impressive and the handle gives the whole setup a very connected feel which is hard to describe but very unique, at least among the rods I have used. The taper is ...

Not sure when the updated Luxxe Oltre will be released either.
You have a source saying that this is going to happen or just speculating? Either way, I hope your right!

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

I had to do it. Just got my 701MH/HXB-ST. Even though this is my 5th RD it's impressive. Definitely has some added sensitivity compared to the other 7' models and even compared to the 641 SMT although different feeling. It is slightly more clear than the others almost like they turned the bass down...

That white falcon I bought for some bigger cranks. Is it sufficient for smaller ones too?
I'm pretty sure Dom and possibly RISE are two members who currently have the rod. I don't, I've been waiting for a cherry Cristobal to show it's face..

Re: 19' Steez Ct vs 20' Steez CT

My source shows the new 2020 Steez CT 7.1 at the same price as the 2 ratios from 2019. You might be speaking of the Steez CT Air, which is a whole new real, it is more expensive.

Re: drop shot plastic for bedding smallmouth

Watch out on the TW order, they only have the one color in stock. You really want the 2.8, the 3.8 is much bigger. I get mine from Japan, so not sure where else they would be in stock in the US. That bait in particular does well with a nose hook, the Texas will work, but it takes away action and you...
