I was checking out the XXX rattle viper, but I thought of using it for smaller moving baits.

I have a lot of unfished gear currently...but right now my "fun factor" setup would be a Steez SV TW (6.3:1) on a '16 Megabass Destroyer F3-610X Hein w/13# Sunline Defier Armilo. Seriously an awesome looking/feeling setup and so fun to fish.

Got quite a few. Down here if you fish most places you need some heavy equipment. I have figured out that I really dont need more than 3 "heavy" setups for a day on Lake Okeechobee. So that being said, I decided to get back to what really was fun for me, and that was getting out and fishing with lighter setups. Now, light down here is M or MH outfits with 10-12lb mono or 30lb braid. So, I revamped my setups to this. My Curado50E has 30lb braid on a MH F Phenix Lee Smith Custom rod for small swim jigs. Scorpion XT1000 with 30lb braid on a M F Point Blank Lee Smith Custom rod for light T rigs with 1/8oz weight. Aldebaran MG with 20lb Seaguar Senshi on a MH F Crucial for T rigs with 1/4oz weight. Pixy PX68R with 10lb Seaguar Senshi on a M F Defy for T rigs with 1/16oz weight. I do have another reel on the way that I will be able to use for lighter baits as well. I have a few spare rods laying around, so I will see which one it fits better on. I will probably spool it with 20lb Senshi, and use it for pitching heavier T rig baits or worms.

As for pure fun factor, I would pick my Grey's 3wt with an Echo Solo 2/3. For my conventional setup my "BFS" Daiwa Fuego and my 13 Gen 1 Omen 6'10" ML casting rod.

The funnest for me is throwing hollow bodies in the rice, reeds, pads with a Tatula 7'4"H and Tatula 7:1 reel.

Boy. Any of my setups is fun whenever the fishing is good. And any of my setups is "whatever" when I'm getting skunked, LOl.
