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" 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.

    • duurrrr whats a heat exchanger I sold my trail sled and only have my f/c ice fishing sled now.   I was thinking about buying a new trail sled beginning of this year but glad I didn't I just don't have time for both ice fishing and sledding oh the hardships I have   I wish I lived in the mountains I think snowmobiling would win over fishing
    • Have the 8" k-drill. Bought it at the fishing show. Had it out about 8 different times and love it. No complaints. Very light weight, drill about 20-25 holes out each time. Only on Monday did I have to use a second battery, had about 21 inches of ice. I have two 5ah batteries for it.
    • It was awesome.....it is not exactly a new thing for presidents to lie, but the guy actually brought in clappers to clap for his lies about pee and crowd gate.....as this means somehow he wasn't lying his a$$ off?  Watching Spicer later in the day trying to provide cover for the boss was almost painful. ....if it wasn't so funny. No clappers there    #sidetrackedfromallthefirstdaypromises
    • Looks like great sub-flooring but not sure how well chip board products would hold up for a trailer top? Even if it's a covered trailer the slush and salt will do a number on the bottom side I would think? For the cost I would just put some 5/8th treated plywood down.
    • I used to sip cognac with a beer and I didn't even get in to whiskeys or bourbons until 8 or 10 years ago, so as a novice I started with the Canadian blends like Crown, Tangle Ridge and Pendleton and I'm more of a sipper using the old fashioned glasses.  I can't give recommendations on any of the really good brands, but if you ever see some of this... run screaming from the bar.  
    • Catfish is right up there with walleye, perch, trout, steelhead, salmon, flounder, grouper.....
    • What does it matter what Bernie Sanders had figured out considering the DNC blatantly rigged the primary against him? And then they tried with all their might to do it again and were exposed.   Face it, you party is fueled by people who are showing that they are the very ones they claim to be fighting against.    Immoral, intolerant, violent, judgemental and full of hate. 
    • hope to have my nills by next weekend to do some testing. 6 incher. putting it with a ryobi 600 pound torque drill with 4 amp batteries. sold the clam plate and auger. friend also use it with the milwaukee drill and same hang up issue. used an 8 inch k drill on bowstring last week with the milwaukee fuel.  opened holes nice and drilled nice. 
    • Trump totally destroyed by hundreds of thousands the numbers that were in attendance for the inaugurations of LBJ and Gerald Ford. Trump again wins. Just win, win, win, win, if not pretend you did.   He may just do the same thing to the country, so don't get to excited.
    • Just drove down from the Brainerd area. Lots of snow up there but going fast. Saw 4 young guys in a ditch south of there with not much snow and one sled with hood up smoking bad. Their still learning you need snow to cool your liquid sleds!
