probably the NRX 843 with an Aldebaran 51 HG and the old BCR GLX 803 with a Scorpion 71 XG.

NRX 852s with Stradic Ci4+ 2500 and NRX 802s with Rarenium Ci4+ 2000 on the spinning side.

2 outfits I just acquired a few weeks ago:

7.9 J-Dream on a Megabass X4 Super Mirage.

Ian Shields tuned TD-ITO on a Shimano Expride 6'10" M or the Dobyns DX 703C coming in tomorrow.

OR

MEGABASS IS73C on a Megabass X4 RATTLE VIPER

1. Casting-Shimano original black, 7'2'' MH Cumara with a Quantum Smoke for jigs, t-rigs
2. Spinning-Shimano original black, 7'2'' M Cumara with a Shimano Static CI-4 for senko's, soft jerk baits, drop shot, light darter heads and shakey heads

A bit older but i've caught so many fish with these set-ups over the past several yearsI still do most of my fishing with them, it's a confidence thing

NRX 894 with Steez Ltd 105 and Megabass Diablo Fast Move x7 paired with Metanium MGL HG will most likely be my two most used this year.

ccass wrote:It usually varies by season for me but overall I'd say:

1. 7' M Steez Fle-X-Lite paired with Steez SV TW 7.1

2. Custom punch rod (Phenix K2 765, extended to 8'9") with a Zillion TWS 9.1. If the rod doesn't have the power to punch than I will most likely either build another custom or I will just get the 8' Archangel.

Last year, top combos were:

7' M Steez Fle-X-Lite with a T31016 (SV Spool) for spring and fall.

Archangel 7'2" MH with a T3 AIR (SV custom) 8.6.


Change:

Summer:
1. Destroyer X7 Destruction with Zillion 9.1

2. 7'2 Archangel with Steez SV TW 8.1

Spring and fall:

1. 7' M Steez Fle-X-Lite with Steez SV TW 7.1

2. 7'2 Archangel with Steez SV TW 8.1

I have been neglecting my spinning setup for a long time, so this season i plan to use them more than my baitcast setups. I will be mainly throwing drop shot, neko and shakey head with these two setups;
TKLS-70MLX with Exist Hyper Custom 2508 8lb Tatsu
TKDS-63L M-1 with Vanquish Limited C2000HGS 4lb Shooter
