I'm wondering if the FMJ can take the place of either or both of these rods, power and action wise?
Or do the TV and PP still have a spot in your arsenals?
I was using the TV and PP for frogs and jigs.
I have the XX PP and the Destroyer FMJ and both have a place. They both have power to spare, but vastly different tapers. Both can handle many of the same techniques, but the PP is probably slightly more versatile overall. The FMJ, however, is a lot more sensitive for bottom contact presentations. I'm very impressed with it in that area, but it can do other things if you want it to.
What else are you using your PP for?
I have a hard time seeing it as anything other than a jig or frog rod.
The taper is quite fast for a Megabass imo.
Haven't held an FMj so is it faster or slower than your PP?
