  1. They are in lol. Thanks
  2. I was thinking the 10’ as I already have two 9’ 3/4-4 oz rods
  3. I know lol and I will!
  4. Again I really appreciate the insight. Very helpful. Now I’ve got to get one in my hands and feel it. The local tackle shop I favor is small and has a very small rod section. I have a feeling there won’t be either of them there. I may have to take a ride to tackle direct or something. If I like the avid I’ll probably pick up that and order the Suzuki if I don’t like it I may be splurging. Either way will be a win win lol
  5. I have a noodle rod already. I use it to fluke while my kids are swimming in the summer. I would not use it to fish for bass in the summer
  6. Thanks for all the input everybody, very useful stuff and I appreciate it
  7. Thanks for all the input. After googling and what not I’m strongly leaning towards the avid. Would I love to get the loomis yes lol but 400$ price tag is a bit high. I could buy the avid right now, if I chose the loomis I’d have to wait for my tax refund (not that I’ll be fishing anytime soon). I’ve only owned one st Croix rod in the past and it broke casting a lure well within its range before I ever even landed a fish with it. That’s the only st Croix I’ve handled. Buddy of mine always has a light loomis rod with him. Made a few casts with it and I loved it. Would you say it’s worth the extra money? This will likely be my most used rod so I don’t mind the extr cost if the experience is that much more enjoyable

  9. Fast=stiffer moderate=softer ? I tend to prefer a softer tip so I can really feel the lure at the end of the line. Most of the time it’s very light idk what the weight is of say a havoc sick fish is bit light and sometime hard to “feel” in the dark
  10. It’s all good. I definitely want the Suzuki in 10’ but not for this application. 10’ is just a little long. Stellar lite was another one I was intrigued by
  11. Yeah figured as well, I haven’t fished fresh water in ten years and don’t know what’s what. Diawa presso was the first one that struck my fancy but it’s hard to tell from looking at pictures
  12. Trying to find a decent light rod for throwing unweighted soft plastics at night for schoolies. Was using a Shimano cellus(I think) worm and jig rod my girlfriend had bought for me which worked ok but I cracked a guide. I’m thinking 8ft is the right length ad will be pored with a 2500-3000 size reel with ten lb braid.
  13. Guess I should add my two cents as well. I mostly use regular power pro 15lb. Have also tried the field and stream, suffix 832, j braid8, Seaguar, and one more I can’t remember. All in 10-15lb. All performed very similar, none ever lost me a fish or seemed to cause an abnormal amount of winds knots. I will say when I first used super slick 8 I fell in love but stopped using it because it frays so quickly and made me nervous
  14. Curious as to your guys thoughts on nanofil? Is it good? Is it different then it once was? I picked up a spool like two years ago for cheap. And it was absolutely the worst fishing line experience I ever had lol. One cast and I threw up a little in my mouth
  15. I’m in. Will deff keep it going as well. Good luck and thanks!
