Im sure its a nice rod but I do not own one. Currently I use a 7' Medium St. Croix. I like the longer rod because I usually let the senko fall on slack like and the longer rod really helps pick up slack when setting the hook.

I use my 7'2" cumara for senko type lures some. It works fine.

I own both the Crucial, and the Cumara. There is a difference in weight and I much prefer the Cumara, however, it carries a much heavier price tag. You cant go wrong with the Shimano warranty either. Not that G Loomis is a bad one. Actually Shimano owns G-Loomis. I have both the 7'2" M action and the 7'2" MH.. both are a great rod.

Lucky,

I own 3, have owned and used them for a few years now. My opinion is that they are the best rods for Senko fishing I have used. I have no trouble with braid or flouro with them having thrown up to 30# Fireline and 10# flouro. I also have used and liked them with small swim baits. The length is just right and I have no problem skipping senkos under docks. As for the strength my largest MN bass to date 6lb 9 oz came on that rod. As a disclaimer I am on Loomis pro staff but would same the same thing about the rod even if I wasnt.

    • Trump got the information from Nunes. Nunes heads the House intel committee, but Nunes also was a member of Trump's transition team. Nunes then fed information to Trump (information that apparently nobody else on the intelligence committee has) about incidental observation of Trump and his transition team (a team that includes Nunes himself). 
    • A better question would be are you right?  Even the articles you link to don't really support your "most likely" assertions so you have to resort to everything is a lie as evidence, like Donald's twitter, and anyone that doesn't believe your alternative facts is an Obama luvin' librul. 
    • What projects have you worked on? Big or small lets see um. Anything, guns, boats, cars, Decoys.    I had fun reworking a few old Harley Golf carts. Didn't have any digital before shots to post. The carts I got were in very bad shape. Had to do a lot of fiberglass body work on them and some mechanical work to get them running. Just used boat seats as I didn't want to throw a bunch of cash at reworking the old seats and one cart had no seats at all when I got it. I took all the big chrome front bumper and bag bars off and glassed over the holes. Everyone had cracks in the front nose cones and rear ends. Not perfect but fun. Top picture is one of the nicer ones I started reworking.
    • Do you have any thoughts about what state you're heading to for this?  CO is draw only but there are lots of decent options available with 0 points. MT had leftover tags which is good because you missed the deadline already. WY has options you could draw. ND has passed. NM passed. UT not a good option with no points I think. ID may have some options but not certain. SD and NE may have some good options but I've never hunted either.   That's some basic info on states. Once you pick a state and get a tag it's really not complicated for the most part. Get elevated, glass up a muley, bed him, sneak in him without being smelled it seen, shoot him!   My son and I just found out we drew ND muley tags this year so we're pumped about that!
    • Just random ones I like. 1) Grand Marais fall. 2) HSO member Laker fishing. 3) Door County Wis.
    •   Yep and the Hawks won again!
    • Choosing 3 "best photos" is tough, but here are 3 of my favorites right now.  Cottonwood vs. Lightning Morel cluster  Pup in the snow
    • Missed the game but I guess I am glad I did. 9 games to go, still time to right the ship but at this pace the blues are going to pass us up.
    • Waiting for the new H'birds I ordered.  Hope it shows soon.  I be using the LCX as long as I have to.  del,  yes it is 10 inch screen
