Zillion rods in the House

Recommended Posts

Not my house...not yet anyway.  I can tell you right now the fit and finish of these rods will be superior to anything available for $199 (have you checked out the Steez rods?!)  The Zillion is rolling off the same assembly line.  Will the sensitivity hand with the Cumara?  Don't know yet.  Who's going to be the first to buy one?

when are they going to be available in stores?

Check the link I posted above...they are available right now.  Simmons Sporting goods seems to be the first to receive their order.  Tackle Warehouse is scheduled to get their shipement 8/6.  I've got to wait until Cabelas gets theirs before I get one...it just makes more sense being I live 2 miles away.

Nah, haven't ordered one.  I'm on a bit of a Kistler kick now.

Kistler  :).  I'm glad Kistler finally switched to the Fuji reel seat and for '09 ditched the Batson Zirconium guides in favor of Fuji ceramics, but I still think the whole line is overpriced.  I do praise them for their plans to roll their own blanks here in Texas...that gets bonus points.  However..I've owned two Kistlers (crankbait composites), and kudos to Tackle Warehouse for taking them back.  The price versus what I got didn't jibe.   I generally respect everyone's rod choice, with the only tangible attribute being the components.   With your jig and worm rods already decided and on-deck...it's a blast to shop in the ultra competitive middle rod market for my spinnerbait, chatterbait, fluke, etc. rods to do my 'dirty' work.

You won't get any argument from me on that one, but....  :)

The rods are really nice guys.  I'd say comparable to the Steez line for alot less.

Amen Natural, probably the most fun I have tackle shopping. This is where I go for the bling. Although, one couldn't pry the boring old ho-hum BCR's from my cold dead hands.

It's become a mainstay in rap culture; I'm not sure who originated it, but ICE-T sounds about right.  From 'Cop Killer' to an actor on 'Law and Order'...pretty crazy.
