Scooped up an Ebay reel stand.  One of my JDM reels came with one, and they are pretty nice for keeping the rash off a reel when laying on deck.  I could not bring myself to buy the Titanium Shimano one...

Wow I didn't know that they made kickstands for reels. What the heck.

I've got some mid/high end stuff that you're referring to. But let me tell you I went fishing yesterday with a 35.00 Cabela's rod and 100.00 Daiwa reel and couldn't have been better equipped. Nice combo and welcome.

That was very similar to my first "nice" baitcast combo, I also got the Fury and a Tatula CT Type-r! Still one of my fav combos.

Yeah well worth the money, it's one of the best you can get around this price range imo

The lightest rod I own is a Croix Legend X 7'1MH, and I recently got a deal on a used Aldebaran 50G.. so naturally I had to put the two together. This combo is so stupidly light it's like a toy. I get why people love magnesium reels.

This is my lineup going into the 2019 season. I've finally purged my collection of oddball manufacture rods & rods that I was not totally smitten with. I've really focused on quality and decided these are the brands/models that really speak to me (currently). These guys have made the cut (so far). 

 

Baitcast reels are mostly Curado K's, Lew's Tournament Pro's, or Tatula's. Spinning reels are either Ballistic or Tatula LT's.

Honestly I don't have enough seat time in with it yet to give it a review.

'19 Vanquish 2500SHG.  Feels VERY close to Stella smooth, but impossibly light.  20g lighter than my same size Stradic CI4+ FB.  I'll be fishing them both on Guntersville Thu-Sun.  I'll try to give an idea of comparison after.

I've never seen unpainted Shimano ci4+.  Looks neat like Daiwa's Zaion.

I don’t have a picture right now but when I get off work in the morning I’ll post one up! Edit: added

 

6ft medium fast St. Croix triumph with a penn battle2 2000 series mainly used for plastics. 

 

Dobyns 734C with a Daiwa Tatula CT 7.3:1 which I use for everything. Decided on this setup from browsing these forums prior to actually signing up. Love it!

For you canoe/kayak anglers, the one rod and reel I always carry out, use the most:

 

A 5'6" M powered, F, St Croix spinning rod (PS56MF) with a Shimano Stradic Ci4+ 2500 or 3000 reel. Gosh, for finesse applications from a kayak where we can get "up close and personal," for casting under docks, for accuracy, a short lever for great control over fish especially as you bring them along side to lip them . . . greatness.

Picked up a used NRX 895C for a pretty good price. It has a few cosmetic blemishes but nothing major. It seems like a beast of a rod. Not really a fan of the aesthetics. Never been a fan of recoil guides and they look even less appealing being part of the hybrid guide train. We'll see how she fishes in a few weeks when bass opens. Either way I don't see myself ever paying full retail for one of these rods.

I miss the days of sub 6' rods being standard. You're one of the few that really grasps the short lever principle, too.

Thanks!

 

Note, too, that none other than the great Hank Parker has been promoting a pistol grip casting rod on his TV fishing show. Hank grew up with these and so did I. We are both the same age as I recall and they were popular years ago. Hank can cast his short rod into places that are hard to hit with a longer rod. I think he pulled in a 7 pounder on one of his shows.

 

Yes, go get a 10 ft. rod, make it a stiff one, and have a ball catching one pound bass that feel like double digit monsters.

 

Or, heck, if you aren't using the rod to make long casts? Go short.

i use my 5'6' pistol grip when on private waters and ponds ... in a jon boat ... some close spaces ... that's when it shines and the entry into the water is smooth and unobtrusive ... great presentation ...

 

good fishing ...

What do you throw with this combo? I've got the same rod. I even had the same reel paired up with my 754c Xtasy at the end of last year but I switched from a tat sv 8:1 to a metanium 8:5 for throwing jigs this year. I love both combos. Skipping was easier with the tat but I love the metanium for palming on the retrieve.
