I don't like them at all and have since removed them :lol:
Yea, had one on my Emeraldas. I hated it too. I cant even stand the new Tatula style knobs. I shape for me.

How does the warhammer compare to the Dobyns DX 795 Flip, Megabass Power Versatile, and Megabass Super Red Demon?

MB Faust/sv103xs not all the lakes I fish up here in NW Wisconsin require punching so it will also double for big jigs and big T-rigs. I have another Faust on order it will be paired with a chronarch MGL 8.1:1 for frogs. FAUST!!

used a powell 3D 795 last year. works well but this year I'm using the faster action Powell 3D 775. Punching for me is normally a 1oz weight, hook and small plastic. My heaviest sinker is 1.5oz.

Nice, also 1 daiwa and 1 shimano! I really want a rounder. I was so close to buying a conquest but I found a nib anteras 5.6:1 for 400.00, couldn't say no, can't wait to cast it.

Ian installed a set of 7.2:1 gears in the ringa and with the R+ spool it will pitch twelve innings with no problems
The antares i use for jackall rythum waves and such. I have mono on but i may change up to braid today
