My first love still loves me 2018

Postby goldrod » Mon Jan 01, 2018 5:04 pm

When i came here some years ago , the IMX 843 was the very first expensive rod i ever brought and it does so many things so well that i was like uh.. I recently got a steez lt and put on it with a 1016 spool in it and now Im so in love with this setup.
Not all chatter baits are the same, the zman ones in my opinion require more of a stout rod while the phenix ones more of a parabolic type rod.. I can assure this one thing to you that the combo of the steez ltd and imx 843 can do the phenix chatterbaits
with no problems. If you are in a pinch and want to throw lighter wire cb. i suggest this rod. Im about to use it for 5/16 jigs as its a bit nippy and I've always wanted to have an Edwin Evers 2016 bassmaster classic day on the water.

Im still throwing s/b with this rod and reel combo but if you want one of the "original" versatile rods, this is one to be had.
Many men go fishing all of their lives without knowing that it is not fish they are after.

I use my NRX 843/101hg conquest for Chatterbaits and swimjigs and it works amazing..

Mine, too. I just gave to an old friend who wanted a shorter rod. I remember when that rod was really long! ;)
