  1. How are rigs like these any worse than chicken rigs? Seems like when I catch fluke on bucktail and teaser and chicken rigs the other teaser/bucktail that’s not in the fish’s mouth is way more treacherous and can hook someone way easier. Also don’t some boats just gaff the fish? Never been yet so maybe I am mistaken. Looking for any tips.
  2. What’s your opinion on a good model. Do you think the swimbait fanatic rods have a model that can handle some heavier lead
  3. How about the uc swimbait fanatic chicken rod that’s built on the tilefish blank. Think that’s way overkill. With the trigger and split grip I think it would match nicely with the tranx
  4. Was also looking at the Lamiglas Triflex 7240 and 7640 and the g loomis new pro blue 905c. Any info on any of these or others?
  5. Yeah I kind of figured the tranx isn’t perfect but it will have to do. Loaded with 30 lb max cuatro. How’s the action on the 700m. It’s not too stiff is it. Should be a super light combo for sure. Maybe next year a saltiga will be in the cards
  6. Actually was researching the 700m for a Nantucket shoals party boat fluke trip. Trophy tackle has them made up with cork handles. Do you think the 700m would be good for dropping down and jigging chicken rigs with heavy lead for big fluke? Have a shimano tranx 400 for it.
  7. I guessing that not a lot of people have them yet to voice an opinion. Going to head to tackledirect this weekend and put hands on them.
  8. I just picked up a Tranx 400 loaded up with 30 lb max cuatro. What do you guys think of the new G. Loomis IMX pro blue rods. Specifically the 905c model. 7’6” heavy moderate action. The jigging world would prob make a super light combo though.
  9. Anyone have a chance to feel the new version of the G. Loomis pro blue rods? Going on a Nantucket shoals fluke trip and looking at these to go along with my shimano tranx
  10. Any 10 lb braid will work perfect on it. I have mine spooled with yozuri 10 lb in blue. Was flicking with it this past Saturday. Great reels.

  13. Thanks guys
  14. Chicken rig is a heavy sinker on the bottom and two droppers with light bucktails above it.
  15. What blank would you recommend for fluke fishing Nantucket shoals on a party boat. Dropping down heavy lead around 16 oz or more?  I’m thinking 7’6”?  Thanks for any info and advice.

      ROdgeeks XC804, or 805. I fish with Bad Influence, Captain Jeff uses a 734 - that is ptryy much the recommended blank for up there. TEh 8' you can cut a little off the tip and from teh butt to get teh 7'6 and to get it to handle heacier than 16oz. Teh 805 is a lot of rod, but will handle the weight

      So basically the 734 would be the ticket to handle the weights?
