Daiwa Megatop

Postby Isaiah20 » Sun Feb 25, 2018 1:57 pm

I am looking into getting a JDM Daiwa UL rod. I have no idea about the megatop tip though. I am looking for a rod to throw hair jigs for dinosaur trout. 1/32 to 1/8. Cronos 682 UL is the rod that I am looking at.

I have a Presso AGS 54 XUL-S with the Megatop. It is very sensitive. The solid tip is only .8 mm thick. I'm sold on it for ultralight fishing with light lures. Mine is an Area rod designed for micro spoons and line up to 3lbs.

The Chronos 682 ULS-ST is a bass rod. I'd be suspicious it would effectively cast 1/32 hair jigs. Otherwise it looks good for big fish. You might consider an Ajing or Mebaru rod, casts light jigs but plenty of backbone.
