Yepper... after 3 months of long waiting (Which was worthwhile anyways) I finally got my two Pro Edge 8'6 Edge Series rods home!!!

Only if I was Wolverine and my hand healed up quickly... June 7th couldnt come any quicker... I'll be sure to post up one or two pics of the rod when I get the reels on... gonna be sweet!!! Only need to decide which lure to throw out first...

MANY thanks goes to Keith of Pro Edge... Those two rods definitely would be my mainstay rods for 2008...

Reb,

Those rods are soooo nice, congrats! Money well spent, like a wand in hand.....really it's hard to describe how light and powerful they are. They will kick muskie bu "double TT".......

I'm leaning on KT to get a bass rod done for me by this weekend! Can't wait!

Oh yeah Chris... they're very much more lighter than the rods I used last year...

I did bring along two Strike Reaction Rods along so Keith could change the tips (but naturally he forgot the kit... shows how BUSY he is... grin ) and I compared both SR rods to one Edge rod and its very much noticeably lighter...

Hope you dont mean "breaking his hand" mafia-style when you're referring to "Leaning on KT" grin He did mention that hes still 3 months behind... and from what I can remember... that would mean he would be unable to fish as he'd have no rods... He said he wouldnt build his own rods til hes caught up on fishing... and god knows some of us would love it if we could go fishing with him this year...

I've got a 8'6" Dback medium supposed to be ready next week, too! I was hoping for the GLoomis but they couldn't get the blanks in time to be finished by my arrival.

I'll be picking up a couple Taloras, too wink

Strike that. I was just informed that it is done and that I got the last Loomis blank they had. Woohoo!!

Thanks guys.

I will have another couple weeks of building with my boat in the shop. Been a crazy year. Make sure you order in the fall for next year if you are interested.

I do have some new bass sticks that I need to put on the water for some R and D.

    • My buddy Dan and I have been going to the same farm for 3 years now and the turkey hunting is almost unfair. We've never been skunked and the only time we haven't tagged out is the first year.    This year the bowhunting was tough. We were trying to be fancy and get things on film and it hurt us tremendously. So, naturally, we gave up on filming and went back to having fun.    We shot 4 turkeys, a tom and a jake each, all by fanning (reaping). The action was intense and super fun. Additionally, after having a set busted by a wandering daytime coyote, I lip squeaked her into to 20 yards and finished her off with the same treatment, a load of #6 to the face. My jake and the coyote are on cell phone video so I will see about sharing those.   My tom, came on the last day. He ran more than 200 yds just to confront that turkey fan. Due to a depression in the landscape, I had no idea where he would come up. He emerged at 10 FEET! and in a split second I shot him at 8FEET!! Thankfully I had the bead on his head or I would've likely missed. Nothing beats turkey hunting with your best buddy.    And I'm having a taxidermist friend of mine do a euro mount on the coyote skull. Unfortunately the hide was shedding terribly and was matted with mud. 
    • Merriam hybrid killed in Nebraska 5/4/17. 
    • Bonus points!  Well done Andy.  
    • Now I figured out how to add pictures. Time to submit for a score. 
    • I think they got greedy and it backfired. Lots of ads everywhere, requiring subscriptions for some forums. They split the boards up into two different websites (fishing MN and HSO), the boards went down for a while, and most the traffic got fed up it all and just moved on. I used to check this place daily, now maaaaybe once a week.
    • That would be my guess as well... If you run it "as is" you are going to wreck the motor due to the lean condition.
    • Man, this place used to be hopping with all kinds of posts and some great info being shared.  What happened?  This place is almost as dead as Aaron Hernandez.
    • How about the ones sold at fleet farm.  Full jacket military stuff probably not optimum for defense..so the normal stuff.
