12 posts in this topic

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" Legend Tournament with a split grip handle and pimped out grin I can't wait to get. Should be ready in a couple weeks.

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!!

Yep, Keith makes some some of the best rods ive ever used. I got 2 of his DB Musky rods and 3 spinning rods. Also got 2 edge Musky rods and 3 spinning rods and love them all.

Cant go wrong with any of the rods Keith makes.

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.

    • Who has it for that price? Is the transducer included? I have a 5" version. They are good units but if you ever need out of warranty service they will not repair your unit. They give you credit towards a refurbished unit of the same type or let you upgrade to a different model for a certain price which is something to be aware of. I found that out when my elite 5 wouldn't turn on.
    • Your post is demonstrative of the point I am trying to make. Rural areas have been sold a bunch of talk, and you believe that talk and vote against your own interests. The metro area is taking nothing away from the rural areas in terms of taxes, tax dollars flow the other way. It flows that way through employers that exploit you. A particular quote from "What's the Matter with Kansas?" really nails the point home.      
    • I agree, but for the few times I do overnights I would use a light weight cot.  The hitch design is different than most of the other houses on the market.  It looks to have pivot points at the corners of the main frame.  I have yet to see one go through the drop or rise process.  A video of it operating steps would be nice too.   It would be great to hear from someone that ownes one.  
    • I have the hook 7 with down imaging/GPS/standard sonar, I have the lowrance lake chip for mine and really like it.  easy to use and good quality images on the screen.
    • I'm also in the market for a new pair of boots this year. I actually had a pair of Rocky boots that my wife bought me over 16 years ago but it is high time to replace them. I need a pair that lace up because of my prosthetic right foot so the Muck boot types are out for me. I think I will just get a pair of LaCrosse Ice Kings. What amount of Thinsulate is needed in a warm winter boot? I found a pair of Ice Kings on Amazon that says it is only 400 g. of Thinsulate but it is rated for -70. That doesn't seem right to me. Shouldn't it be much more Thinsulate?   https://www.amazon.com/LaCrosse-Ice-King-10-Brown/dp/B0047BWZHO/ref=sr_1_1?s=apparel&srs=2600960011&ie=UTF8&qid=1480899050&sr=8-1&keywords=lacrosse%2Bice%2Bking%2Bboots&th=1&psc=1
    • Friggin A!!!!!! 
    • Anybody have any input on these? I just bought a bigger boat and am looking for a bigger sonar. I found one of these for what seems to be too good of a deal ($520)
    • In the end all you need to see is when the jig disappears into the fishes mouth!  I've been using a Aqua Vu SV, it's old b&w with very small screen but it worked. But this year I won a Marcum camera from Thorn Bro's, (thank you). Lookin forward to trying it out.
