  1. Past hour
  2. Some years ago Wal Mart had these for $2.99. I think they were an exclusive cheaper made model because they also had $5 ones. My dad and I used them all the time. I got his tackle box after he died and he still had several. I used to always buy a chrome and a fire tiger. Occasionally we'd hook a striper on them and have to loosen the drag because they would break the rear hook off. I caught many a LMB and striper on these baits.
  3. Absolutely! Although it may have to be when I return. Cell service is spotty at best down there where time stopped 60 years ago
  4. I have owned both and they are good rods for the money. That being said, I had to warranty the Dobyns twice. After the 2nd time I was done and sold it. The iRod is still doing work. To add another option, I have a Spiralite Maverick 8' HF that has become my fav swimbait rod and it's only $119.00.
  5. If it has been well maintained 422 hours is not alot. Barely broke in. You should be good to go for awhile as long as it has been well taken care and you do the same.
  6. Wow, crazy we didn't have a "BASS Elite Series has turned into a dink fest" after the Winyah bay event when the leader weighed 50lbs IN 4 DAYS. You guys are smarter than that, this is a result of the fishery and not the the format. I will agree that BPT is geared more towards the number of fish caught (which is way more exciting to me) however, i don't agree this is a "dink fest".
  7. Mine finds the bottom great but the GPS is so slow to update that I'm looking to buy a different unit and use the Hook on the bow.
  8. If you haven't bought your blank yet Get Bit is having a 30% off sale on Rainshadow blanks.
  9. This past event I won. I was about 200 yards from the launch and repeatedly trolled the same 50 yards bank flipping the same 3/8oz jig for 7 hours and weighed in a 12lb bag to win. Never cranked the outboard.
  10. Based on ergonomics and price the Helium 3 gets my vote. I have an FMJ - gorgeous rod, but I’ve learned to hate the trigger on the reel seat and how thin the grip is. Sadly I likely won’t buy another MB rod until the change the reel seat. I also have a GLX 844MBR and agree it’s an awesome rod, reel seat on this one is great for me for casting but not awesome for pitching so for pitching the Helium 3 or one of my Gen 1 Orochi XX rods is what I prefer. I got my GLX on a deal as a rep sample. I have no objection to high end expensive rods but the Helium does all I need, I think if I were to ever look at a $400 rod like a Destroyer again I’d seriously consider a custom.
  11. Coming from Ohio I have to drive crazy hours to get to any Classic. I really loved the fact it was in Knoxville this year as it was only 8 hours for me. Sadly I will not be making it to this Classic as I was there in 2014 and not interested in making that journey again. I say push the classic back about 6 weeks and bring it to Erie.
  12. Around what hours on a gas boat motor that things really start to go down hill, I found nice boat for a reasonable price, just to find that the motor has 422 hours on it, its an 07 skeeter skeeter zx225 with an 07 yamaha Vmax 225. To me 422 hours seems like its sure seen its life, but on the other hand if she has run this long it leads me to believe that she has been well taken care of to keep going as much as it has... opinions, thoughts any help is appreciated. Thanks
  13. Next time you're up at Table Rock, if you find this lure around the Aunts Creek area, put it away for me. I lost it several years ago and would like to get it back. It was my goto lure.
  14. Stripers get after it pretty good, you will want some slip from the drag if using braid. They tend to be line shy so if you go braid a leader may be involved.
  15. So what do we make the winning tickets out of?
  16. I knew gators were big but dang! Hope you post a report or two.
  17. Worse... I’m a kayaker. I almost paddled the entire lake that day and never caught a limit. One of em said he caught almost 15 fish pitching 1 (ONE!) flooded tree.
  18. Today
  19. Produces big bags and saves you a boat load (pun intended) because your not running all over the place wasting gas.
  20. I placed an order to ship to NH, there was no sales tax. My company sells and ships items to states with sales tax and we (pass it on to the customer) have to pay based on where it is being sent. I would have to believe that the new laws regarding internet sales to states that have a sales tax are being put into place. Any item sold/shipped to a state that has a sales tax is going to be taxed accordingly.
  21. 1st and 2nd place in my last tourney never went further than 300 yards from where we launched.
  22. Doesn't matter. I like the DD22 for those times when I want to crank down into that structure and not worry about losing it. A lot cheaper than the LC and MB deep cranks and just as effective. I've got LC and MB divers, but sometimes that bottom structure gets gnarly, and that's when I tie on a Norman.
  23. Like Kidflex said, if you're maxing out at 3/8 oz jigs & t-rigs you'd want a 3 power loomis like the 853 or 893 for best sensitivity. The US Destroyer doesn't have a 853/893 equivalent casting rod which really bothers me because I think it's missing such an essential technique in the lineup... Megabass newly added Brigand to the Destroyer lineup but it's in Spinning... Really wish they made it in casting instead... You're probably best going with GLX 853/893
