Omen Green 7'2" MH Questions

I'm looking for a good 7'+ rod for 3/8-3/4 spinnerbaits & chatterbaits, 3/8-1/2 buzzbaits and 1/4 - 1/2 swimjigs. Is the action moderate enough for these baits? Does this rod throw 3/8+ baits well?

thx

Abu Revo LT v Shimano Scorpion XT

Looking hard at both of these reels ... Any experience with these reels, particularly side by side would be excellent. Application would be for 8-14lb mono or fluoro, jerkbaits (Pointer 78-100, Ima Flits 100-120s, Duo Realis 100), Topwater poppers (Iovino Splash Its, Yellow Magics), and small cranks...

Re: What would you like to have on a Fishing Rod?

Here is my list of wants... 1) Guides somewhere between normal size and micro/macro size... Can you imagine trying to fish the Hartwell Classic with micro/macro guides. 2) Probably the one thing I've wanted for years... a simple, discrete, robust and effective balancing system (I think Cabelas or Ba...

Should also mention I don't want to spend more than $300 per rod.

Pitching/Paddletail/Frog Rod (Replacing Powell 765 Max)

I have (4) Powell Max 765s that I currently use for pitching/froggin/paddletail swimbaits/carolina rigging. I'm looking at replacing them with more sensitive and more balanced rods as I find the 765s to be quite tip heavy and not as sensitive as I would like for fishing with fluoro. I'd prefer rods ...

Re: 13 Fishing Rod (Balance w/E Series Curado)

Thanks for everyones feedback. Next TW sale I'm going to pull the trigger on at least one Envy. I'm thinking either a 7'3" or 7'6" pitching rod (3/8-3/4 jigs)

13 Fishing Rod (Balance w/E Series Curado)

For those of you who have rods by 13 Fishing, I'd like to know how well they balance with an E Series Curado? I currently have nothing but Powell Max rods and have been fairly happy, but they don't balance worth a #$%^!!! Thinking of replacing a number of my Powell Max's that I pitch and/or flip wit...

Larger handle options for LH Alphas Ito and LH Fuego

What are some lower cost options for replacement handles that are longer than the stock handles found on LH Alphas Ito and LH Fuegos? I know ZPI and Bassart have 90mm handle, but they are a little pricey for a handle IMHO.

Thanks
