Re: Ticking Sound-Stradic FM

Since you mentioned it above, I have and love love love my Gekkabijin X. It has quickly become my favorite eggbeater. I have it on a 2 pc ML rod that stays in the xterra. I've used it extensively, and I've caught some 4-6# fish with it. I have zero complaints, and it is still as smooth as day one. I...

Re: Power BFS Rod: Sierra or Rebellion?

So, in another thread I had asked whether the Dobyns Sierra 682c would make a good power bfs rod for finesse jigs, small paddle tails and T-rigs, mini-max 1/4 oz chatterbait, 1/4-ounce squarebill, Lucky Craft Pointer 65, etc. Mostly for small pond near me with light cover. Got one positive reply. R...

Re: Short List for My New Rod: Help!

Update on the Dobyns Kaden 713: Loving it! Great all-rounder for lighter presentations. Definitely a fast action but still a soft-enough tip to load finesse jigs, mini-max chatterbait, small T-rigs, paddles tails. Best $80 I’ve spent in a long time. Same dude I bought it from now selling a Kaden 68...

Re: Major Craft Issue

They have looked like bankruptcy for at least a year now. Most stuff is discounted, but nothing is in stock, website hasn't been updated in over a year. I've been concerned myself, because I love their quality and consistency.

Re: 2024 SLX with MGL 3 spool.

Fwiw, the slx I had was the xg model. I've had more issues with high-gear reels of all brands than lower ratio models.

Re: All new steez sv tw

Does anyone know what the spool side plate is made of? I think the US ct sv was all magnesium (frame, both side plates), but the JDM was zaion (mg frame+gear side). A TW II is zaion as well I think. Last Steez to have mg palm plate was the EX version. Palm plates on US and Japan versions are both i...

Re: 2024 SLX with MGL 3 spool.

The reason I mentioned my Tatulas is that the SLX I had went geary before the end of last summer. I just ran a lipless bait(and a squarebill) with it, so no logical reason for that to have happened. I bought it for $65 and sold it for $50, so I wasn't really out anything, but I'm still puzzled as to...

Re: 2024 SLX with MGL 3 spool.

The new slx mgl better be as fun to use as the slx dc xt or it has tough competition against a small packaged reel like the tatula 70/80. Those reels are quite impressive for what they are. And the Tat 80 can be had for $110 from aliexpress, while the Tat 70 SV is about $165 there. Which do I prefe...

Re: What is this

I like those. I used to have jointed red zone rat-l-traps similar to those, but not exactly the same. Long since discontinued, though.

Re: WHY are there no short enthusiast pitching sticks?!?!

Its not enthusiast-level, but the FXtreme XAS 610H is a fantastic frog rod. It is light and very well-balanced. Another plus is the shorter than average rear grip makes walking a frog tip-down a breeze. I've used it for 3 seasons now just like you describe, and it doubles as a jig rod for me when I ...
