    Terminator shudder bait

    Trying new stuff is important to me too. I'm a bit conservative when it comes to buying a lot of the new offerings but this one looks good. A different vibrating lure in our now muddy waters gets my attention.

    New Rods and Advertised Rating

    A bit of help, maybe. https://www.fix.com/blog/selecting-the-right-fishing-rod/ There is no set standard in the rod industry. One manufacturer's MH Fast Tip may be another manufacturer's HVY Fast Tip. Generally speaking the cheaper rods weigh more than the more expensive. Simply due to cost of material. There are other factors but nothing trumps costs. Weight figures in the fatigue issues. A lighter more sensitive rod is in demand. The blank is part of this equation. How the blank is fixed to handle, reel seat and guides are also something to consider. If the components are top quality and assembled by trained employees. These things need to be considered when you're looking to spend your money. Wife owns a sales agency and we've been around sporting goods manufacturers for many moons. And yes, age is a factor.

    Lews SG1 rods

    Full disclosure---our rep agency works with Fitzgerald Fishing. Had to make a change for those of you who know us. That being said, I think Lew's puts out a good product. I use Lew's reels, as well as Fitzgerald reels. Hard to find a rod for $50 that performs well. Hope this one suits your needs and if it does you should buy it as that's a good price. While you're over to Watson's take a look at Fitzgerald Rods. See what you think of the Versa series, the gray rods. Retail is higher than the Lew's you're looking at but for $129 it's a very good rod. if you decide to purchase one of the Fitzgerald Rods, send me a message or text 606-434-9146 and I'll get a hat out to you. But if that Lew's rod works for you then that's the one I would buy. i'll be at the 3 day annual Watson's show with Fitzgerald, stop by and say hello and Merry Christmas.

    Spot lock- anchor

    My schedule involves traveling. . But I do make it home weekends. Be glad to let you have as much time on the Ultrex as you'd like. I love it. We could always put Fishman in the boat so we'd at least get a biscuit LOL

    Spot lock- anchor

    Ross, you are welcome to fish with me sometime and use my ultrex all day LOL Spotlock is wonderful. These things have lots of features but the spot-lock is the real deal. Let me know when we can get together. My schedule is kinda crazy but with couple days notice I can make it work.

    Rain gear recommendation??

    Carhart is supposed to have some nice ranger. Have no experience with their rainwear but it's worth looking at. Guide wear that I have has been worth every penny. Bought in bargain cave several years ago, product was going through running change and I lucked out. It would be difficult to have rainwear that will perform well in both winter and summer.

    Co-poylomer line?

    Braid has it;s place, lot of folks like it. I enjoy reading about other guy's experiences with products. Fluorocarbon is very popular as well. Just wanted input from this site. Hope you like the Seaguar.
