The elusive one has been captured...

Post by Dragboatdriver » Tue Mar 11, 2014 10:12 am

Here are a few items I have recently acquired, as well as a piece that I couldn't seem to get my hands on... until now. :evil22:

First up are two new X7's that I added to my lineup. I have had the Super Eiger and Shading X for a while and loved them so much I decided to pick up a few more.

These rods are the X7 Bearing Down Type X and the X7 Cyclone Advantage. I must say, they are both absolutely incredible rods. Particularly the Bearing Down Type X. Gary at The Tackle Trap set me up with this rod and I have been blown away since the moment I held it in the store. I fish a lake with a lot of docks, and with this rod I can nearly double my skipping distance! The rod has such a subtle tip, yet has plenty of power to horse them out from under the docks! In the posting below this I will show a 6.22 pound largemouth that succumbed to the power of the Bearing Down Type X

The Bearing Down Type X is paired with a Megabass FX68 and the Cyclone Advantage is paired with a dolled up ITO 103M with a ZPI RC-001 spool.

Now, the gem shown below (and in the following post) is a reel that I have been trying to get my hands on for quite a while. I was presented with the opportunity to purchase this brand new in box Megabass IS63 Racing Illusion. These pictures do not do this reel justice. It is stunning in person. I will also show some pictures of it next to its fellow limited color IS brethren.

Thanks for looking and stay tuned for the post below of more photos!

:whistle: That's some fine tackle porn. I like how you rest your gear on towels too. When I see rods/reels resting on concrete/blacktop, it makes me throw up in my mouth a bit :sick:

Amazing collection for sure! Are they for the man cave collection or part of your active arsenal?

Amazing David, truly an enthusiast level group of items you have there =D>

I'm glad you're enjoying the X7 rods as well. That Bearing Down X7 is such an incredible and unique rod, sounds like you have it dialed in from the start!
