Received my Savage.Gear Black Ops casting rods yesterday....7'6"MH and 7'11"H.  They are on sale for $199.  I had purchased the 7'3"MH last fall, so I was already familiar with this series.  42T blanks/Fuji K Titanium/SiC inserts and the roomiest reel seat I've held.  All the models are very light weight, but the 7'6"MH/Fast (3/8-1 1/4oz) is in another league.  It feels lighter and more balanced than my 7'4"MH Poison Glorious.  I literally checked the rods length to make sure they didn't send me the 7'1"MH.  I don't have a sufficient scale, but I bet the 7'6"MH weighs 4oz.

I was hoping my new curado k was going to be in this picture.  I ordered it along with hayabusa hooks.  My bad for just glancing over the shipping email.  I didn’t noticed just the hooks shipped.  That’s my fault.  However, I was very surprised when I went to the mail box and first felt the box.  I was like this feels light for a reel.  Opened it up and just hooks.  I very quickly and politely called the company.  Both items shipped separately.  After getting in touch with C/S the  curado I ordered was apparently on back order but,  magically a shipment came in yesterday  and the reel will go out today. He did call me back within 5 minutes.  
 

so for today hayabusa hooks and two variations of boom boom jr swim baits. I’m going to use the curado to throw smaller swim baits and swim jigs

Well I got some more stuff, more different craws to try in black and blue and I wanted to try some spro square bills. I wanted 3/8 oz jigs, I accidentally got a 1/2 oz black and blue. It will work, I fish shallow weedy places so I like to go lighter on my jigs. I wanted to try a variety of craws in black and blue and see what my fish prefer lol. I lost my rights to purchasing any more fishing stuff for a while. I don’t need any more and I told my wife I have a problem and I need help, I am still breathing so I am currently alive for now.

Report back! I've been waiting to get my hands on one. 

Threw it for about 20 minutes today. No takers but I was impressed by the action for it being the mass produced version. Nice tight action with slow steady retrieve, super responsive to rod twitches or manipulating the reel and also looked good on burn/pause/burn retrieves. Very versatile and it'll be in my rotation until I inevitably lose it.

Nice. How fast is the ROF would you say?

I'd guess in the neightborhood of ROF 3-4. Slow enough it doesn't sink much on a brief pause but fast enough you can let it get down in the column a bit if you want to fish it deeper.

I'm thinking she will wear a 9.1 Zillion with some 14lb line for light/medium t-rig/jighead.

Went hunting for a jerkbait rod today, stuck with what I know and grabbed another 6’ 9” Fuego Medium Regular paired it with a 6.3.1 w 12 Daiwa J-Fluoro. The 7.3.1 Fuego CT will go on my topwater rod which is also a 6’ 9” Fuego. 
 

I’ve read really good things about these Spro Little John Deep Divers, going to work it into the rotation with the Duo G87 15A, Berkely Dredger and Money Badger. The Crazy Flappers are for Bifle head jigs, footballs jigs and t-rig.
 

After the last few days, my wallet is crying Uncle.

I like the confidence of a man that buys 2 packages of culling equipment ?

I catch a few small ones. I have to have the beam to tell who’s the smallest.

I picked up a TFO Tactical Elite 736 today at Sportsman’s Warehouse today for $99. I needed a heavy rod to round up the arsenal. I’ve never owned this brand before. Got the first big trip of the year next weekend so we’ll see.

My curado 200 k 6:2 came in the mail yesterday.  Just from palming it in my garage  This is definitely the nicest reel that I own.  It feels amazing. I’m going to put some 40 lbs braid on it and put it on my rainshadow rx6 mb844 1/4- 1oz 7ft 2 in rod.  I’m going to use this set up for swim jigs and soft swim baits like sleeper gills boom boom jr swim bait  etc etc. 

 

I’ll probably put my 8:1 slx dc 150 that’s currently on the rod on my new mhx 843 blank that I just ordered.

Of my Curado's, I've come to like my 70 and 150 MGL's more than my 200's. But man, the 200K is a workhorse! Just a solid, all-around reel. You're gonna enjoy it.

Well I hope the new Vanquish was worth the wait. In hand, it's crazy smooth. It actually feels smoother than the Stella, but just slightly. I love the previous version. I also got a few odds and ends as well.

Well I sold most of my stuff this past Sunday, both yaks and all rods 23 of them and 23 reels also along with most of my lures and plastics. I had way too much stuff and it was creating A never ending addiction. I got permission from the wife to own 1 rod and reel, besides my 3 beaters. This made it really hard to choose a rod, I was looking at megabass  p5 super destroyer, tequila baccarat, and a couple loomis rods. I don’t trust myself with the recoil guides of the nrx + so I had to look lower or higher. I had really good luck a couple years ago with my 844c mbr. After 3 days of consideration and fondling of rods at my local shop I finally decided. G loomis conquest 844c mbr reel was a oddball being a tatula 80 but why not.

Are 70’s and 150’s for smaller baits ? I’m confused on what 150 Mgl and 70 are for.  Sounds 150 is a lighter reel and the 70 for BFS?

 The 70 MGL and 150 MGL can definitely cast lighter lures better than the 200K, but they can also be used for "normal" baits as well. The 70's frame is smaller than the 150. The 150 is smaller than the 200K. Also, the 70 and 150 are quite a bit lighter than the 200K. Also, the 150 comes with bigger knobs than the 70.

 

The 70 isn't BFS. They actually make a separate BFS Curado. The 150 holds more line than the 70.  But you can absolutely throw swim jigs, chatterbaits etc on the 70.

 

Right now I have five 70 MGL's, three 200's and one 150 MGL. I love them all but especially love my 70's. They just disappear in your hand because of their smaller frame. I do wanna get another 150.

Ok, this makes me sad. ?
