Recommended Posts

Fedex Just dropped mine off 6'9" MH. Here are some pics paired up with my Core 51mg7. the Vendetta is def not a light as the cumara was paired with the same reel but hay its only 79.00!

I figured I would check it out since it was so cheap B)

We shall see how well it works.  I  recently switched some rods reels around.

 Alphas R_edition- paired up with my Cumara 6'8" M/F

 Pixy (Pixzilla) -  with a Dobyns DX 702c

 Core 51mg7-    Vendetta 6'9" MH/F

and I needed something cheap to go with my Core until I have a little extra cash around so I grabbed the Vendetta.

Next I need to find a frog rod for my Curado 201E7.

Nice setups!  Since you seem to like higher end gear, take a look at the BCR 875 GLX - amazing hollow body frog rod for heavy slop, or the BCR 855 GLX - fantastic "horny toad" type rod.  The great thing about these two rods is they can both be used for big worms, jigs, football jigs, C-rigs, smaller single hook swimbaits, and pitching to name a few 8-)  oh yeah, and they look GREAT with the new Curado E Series!!

There is also one of the vendetta rods, 7'MH I think, that says "My Rod" where the specs should be.  

Definitely a nice looking rod for the money, wonder how it performs.  

Just one ?, how many guides does it have?

im really skeptical of lower priced rods that look neat. i predict sales for this rod will be on fire out of the gate though.

Balance is one thing, sensitivity is another!  ;D

It's got 8 guides, with SiC inserts (I think).  

 It cant compare to the cumara and core balance wise.  The new core is just to light  so it feels tip heavy with it.   It will do for now hopefully works well on the water.  But it definitely looks like a more expensive rod!

Yeah I am sure it will feel nothing like the Cumara!  But it will do for now until I get some money put aside for a custom rod from Matt at OtterRods.  B)

Sounds like a good plan! That is, as long as you post pics of the new custom job whenever you get it...I've seen some of Matt's work and...;)

The vendetta and vengence rods are supposedly factory balanced for revos, I assume the sx by the colors of the vendetta. That's 2+ ounces on the core so it's gonna be a bit tip heavy but i'm sure it's fishable. I too am interested in the sensitivity, but that's all subjective. Many people say the mojo rods are sensitive, others not so much. Ofcourse it's not gonna be as sensitive as rod 2-3x the price but it's good to see this price range being explored. I think the big thing to worry about is durability. The guys at tackle tour have had some hands on experience and say the foam will indent with constant pressure over time.

Yeah the EVA is not as nice as the Cumara,  but it really is not bad either.

 there is a Labor day sale at TW and there also was a discount they sent to email subscribers recently so now you can pick up for around $59.00!  I may grab a second if this works out ok.
