are you branching out from your Ducketts?
Could you do a review on the ugly stick gx2 rod
Great review!!! Any idea when you will be posting your review of the Fenwick Aetos? As a die hard Fenwick guy I have been looking forward to this since the first time I saw you using one!!!
Review bravefisherman braid line
Dude, This is awesome. I really want a Go Pro!. Been missing a few fish this year and want to see what im doing wrong
why did scott go with the moderate fast rather than the regular fast action ?
Gene, would you still recommend these rods? I snapped my No.8 Blackout MH on a hookset so I need a new 7’MH. I am really interested in these so may pick one up soon. Thanks.
First, thanks for always answering my ton of questions. Ok, I got the 7′ M+ and I think i should have gotten the 6’9 MH/MF for squarebills and traps. What’s the best use of the M+ besides jerkbaits?
Thanks as always!
The Helios are even better!! Okuma
Very nice review gene thanks for sharing that with us
nice review I shared your video in oficial Okuma facebook page for Portugal
When is april’s mtb slam coming out?
I’ve been on the fence about picking up an Okuma rod and reel. Now I think I’m gonna have to.
Would it be a good frog rod
this can be use for saltwater inshore fishing?
Great review Gene! A note to add is that most of the rods in this series are a moderate action. I have used several models and I thought i was using a medium action rod until it loaded up. You can really keep the bass pinned with these tapers. Parabolic in the true sense of the word. Don’t expect a true fast action tip on these. You will soon learn how to set the hook like Greg Hackney if your using a jig! Plus it looks dramatic when you have a 2 pounder on and the other boaters think you caught a 10! The hook keeper sucks but not a deal breaker. I have a love hate relationship with these rods but I agree with Gene, awesome rods!
What one of those rods would you use for chatterbaits, lipless cranks, and crankbaits? The 7′ MH or the 7′ M+? Thanks
Where is that fishing place???
Quick question for you. I just bought a Pinnacle Perfecta DHC5 (7ft 6in, Medium Heavy, Moderate Fast) and it was delivered today. When I took it out of the box I was surprised to find that about 8in above the reel seat the pole telescopes down about 8.5 inches. I have never used a telescopic pole before, so I don’t know much about them. My main concern is (since I plan to use the pole as my jig rig) will the pole be as sensitive as a one piece? My second concern is whether the pole will be able to handle heavy hook-sets? I spent over $100 on the pole, so any advice would be greatly appreciated while I decide on whether I should send it back or not.
Gene, I want to to get a TCS rod for weightless flukes. Is that jerk bait rod good for that?
Hey Gene. I was wondering what the power means? I hear around like for example ” This is a 6 power rod” I don’t know what that means. I know what like medium power or heavy power is. I just don’t know what those numbers mean. Hope you can answer me back. Thanks!
Awesome!! How many rods do you own?
Thank you Gene! Cant wait to pick some up!
nice new boat Gene 🙂
Will you be doing the April MTB SLAM this month?
Nice review Gene! I’m actually doing my rod review tomorrow and I agree with you on the hook keeper, I’m not a fan of it either.
I got the 7’11” version so I’m assuming that might not be ideal for using soft plastics or texas riggings a senko? Can anyone enlighten me?
about how much do these rods retail for Gene? I didn’t catch that in the video or the comments.
These rods can be found for low 100$ like under 110$ on Amazon and on Walmart for around 90$.
When is the MTB Slam coming out? I’m really anxious lol
Just ordered the crankbait rod and couldn’t be more excited! They’re on sale for $94 on Amazon right now. What a steal.
