Re: DING DING!!! G Loomis vs St Croix

I think it's "don't beat a dead horse" (To repeatedly bring up a particular topic with no chance of affecting the outcome) and "Let sleeping dogs lie" (Revisiting an old conflict is like waking a sleeping dog; we best not to do it)....however you say it....This is not a good thing!!!!!!

Re: Airrus Pulsar rods

I've seen the G-Blanks and they are nice rod...they will even do some custom requests (colored threads and windings) for the same money. Was kinda captivated by the Airrus appearance....looks very unique.

My 6'9" Kistler LTX II is very sensitive, I'd compare it to my 6'7" Steez in that area.

Re: Airrus Pulsar rods

I was hoping the 6'9" and the 7'3" would be in the 4's somewhere. I know they aren't Kistlers..but a rod in the 4.0-4.8 oz range would be decent. I was thinking the 7'3" would make a nice frog- topwater/swim/spinnerbait rod to fish around the heavy slop we have in South Florida. Priced right and I w...

Airrus Pulsar rods

Anyone know where I can get the rod weights for the casting models?

Checked the website and no rod weights are listed. Sent them an email asking and never received a reply back. I like what I see in the Pulsar line..but want to know how heavy these sticks are.

Re: Premier vs Compre

Compre for the warranty....as to the guide question...I think it's a moot point as you'll never wear either of them out..but I'd probably go with the Fuji if given a choice.

Re: G loomis technology

If Loomis would just start making some split handle rods, I'd jump on their band wagon...but for the money, I'll look elsewhere or go with a custom build on one of their blanks or an SCV blank and get exactly what I want.

Re: Any thoughts on a multi-purpose casting rod?

Since you asked about St. Croix, I'd recommend either the Avid AC66MF which weighs only 4.1 oz. or the AC70MF at 4.4 oz. Both are priced at $160 retail and both are Medium power , fast action, 10-17lb and 1/4-3/4 lure weights, ..carry a lifetime warranty and are really nice sticks for the money. the...

Re: Trying to ID a Swim/crank bait

The bait had no lip...was a vibrator type..but with a single joint. He said he uses it to "burn" the bait. Figured he'd say who makes it or what it was..but never did....it's driving me crazy.

I'm guessing it's not an exotic...although it looked really nice...."lucky craft" nice.

Trying to ID a Swim/crank bait

Okay...how many of you guys saw "Bass Pros" on TV this "Mother's Day" Sunday? What crank/Swim bait was Van Dam using in his segment? I looked though every catalog I have could not find anything that matched it. Looked like a jointed Rattle-trap. Figured Bass Pro shops would carry it...but was not in...

Re: Baitcasting Reel Help

Daiwa Inshore is a great reel....you be able to throw your baits a country mile. Protective finish and Stainless steel guts. If you fish salt and don't want to spend a lot of money..buy this reel. Shimano Citica is a nice reel for $10 less...but not built for Saltwater. You can rinse pretty much any...

Zillion or Big Bait Special?

Debating whether to go with a JDM Zillion or the BBS? Will be using on a heavy action 7' rod for frogs in slop, Carolina rigs, swim baits, and maybe some "shiner fishing". I really like both reels.....BBS for overall weight & uniqueness, Zillion for appearance and Saltwater crossover. (Saltwater cro...
