Show off your Stuff

Recommended Posts

Post up some pictures of:

- your favorite set-ups

- JDM rods and reels

- Customized rods and reels.

I think Im becoming more of a tackle junkie then a fisherman. So I figured we have a section to show off our Recent catches, why not show off our prized tackle.

I'm not even going to take the time to embarrass myself. Excited to see everyone else though. I've seen quite a few really sweet looking custom rods.

My sentiments EXACTLY!

Here's what I have in the way of baitcasting equipment so far.....that one reel by itself there is a 7.1:1 ratio and still needs a rod but I haven't fully decided what one to get for it yet.

Top to bottom...

6'6" MH/F Shimano Compre with 6.4:1 BPS Extreme, I use this for spinnerbaits and buzzbaits, also can be used for jigs and t-rigs.

6'6" M/F Shimano Compre with 6.4:1 BPS Extreme, I use this for jerkbaits mostly.

6' M Quest rod from Dicks (cheap but I love this rod, it has a softer action like a MF would) with a 5.4:1, I use this for light crankbaits.

Closeup of one reel. They are very compact and palmable but wide open for good spool access with your thumb.

Hawk,

Those combos are hideous. Let me do you a favor.  Send them my way. I'll take them off your hands for you.  ;D

All kidding aside, I just held a Cumara/Core combo last week in a local shop and I almost walked out with a new purchase until reality set in and sales tax.  :D

It was perhaps the sweetest set up I have ever held, absolutely incredile. Nice collection.

Sad to say, I have nothing in my arsenal that qualifies for your said category.

Steezy, it would be cool to see your setups fo sho.

Nice, but just remember...give KVD a Zebco 202 and he will still kick all our arses. It's what you know and what you can do with it. :D

Understood. But the original intent of the post in no way implied that my equipment made me any better than anyone. I just wanted a thread to show off your setups. I enjoy looking at other peoples tackle. Especially those that customize or purchase hard to find Japanese tackle. Like I said I am becoming more of a tackle Junkie. So for me to check out other peoples gear gives me my fix. Get my drift?

Oh yea I got your drift 100%. I just remember seeing guys rigs and such when I first started out and thinking WOW, thats awesome and getting intimidated. I just through it out there to think about that it is not so much the gear that catches the fish. Trust me, I could look at Redline and Jimzee's custom stuff all day long and drool. And I liked the look of the black on black so much I teamed my Cumara's up with black Revos.  ;D

I'm 100% guilty of it too.   :D

I'll be happy enough when I get one of the new Pflueger Patriarch XT's.

Then even happier when I figure out which reel has 7.1 gears that will swap into the XT.

I'm all about value. Some of you guys are out of your mind.

So far a 6'6 Falcon Lowrider. MH W/BPS Pro Light Finesse.=Jerkbaits-wacky worms.

7' Pflueger Tim Horton Crankbait rod W/BPS David Fritts crankin' reel

6'10 Loomis SHR 821S w/Pflueger Supreme

6'6 Rogue MH spin/jig rod with older Abu 802 spinning reel

7'6 BPS Johnny Morris Elite, with BPS Extreme.

The Loomis Mossyback BCR853 should be here tomorrow according to UPS.

The Elite is a KILLER rod, but I'm thinking about selling it to get a BCR 855 Mossyback.

I want to put the new Partriarch XT's on the 853 and 855 if I get it.

One of my favorite reels are the Diawa TDS. But they are discontinued and I don't have ANY so I never bothered to pick any up. This reel, though is KILLER.

Note that isn't my reel, but still my favorite.

Loosen up its a joke.  I got a good laugh out of it.  I'd post up mine but I don't have a digital camera with me at college.  However last week I found two Chronarch 50 MG's new for about $100 each so I'm feeling pretty good about that deal

I'm not sure about posting gear pics, I got beat to death just listing gear in a signature line.

As far as the cold, my fingers are still frozen from this morning, 33 degrees, wind chill was 28.  I caught a small one on a rat-L-trap and a decent 2# on a black craw jig in 1' of water.  I could'nt believe how much that fish was playing and splashing in the shallows in that those cold temps.

I would but its not fair because I work for Shimano. It would just be a picture of the inside of my 3 car garage. I have way too much stuff. And no I'm not going to give any of it away  ;D
