Muskie Innovations Monster Mag rod 10-40 ounce rating. Throws DCG's great to in the 8'. I don't throw pounders but all my rods will handle the Mag Dawgs

I throw mine on an 8' heavy bulldawg rod. It loads up nicely so you don't get too many dawg balls and it's long enough that throwing them doesn't wear you out too bad. We use quite a bit of mag dawgs, but not any pounders. I don't think this rod would handle it, so I don't know what to throw there. Good Luck.

I bought a rod from jason hamernick last year they are sweet for dogs mags or pounders I think I paid 150 I got a 9 footer for the price cant beat it. I was actually thinking about calling him for a couple more.

I use a Thorne Bros rod built on an Avid blank stretched out to 8'6" as my dawg rod. Love it, slings mags effortlessly, and up to the 13" Suzy Suckers. It's unofficially titled as the Mag Dawg rod. I have a few Dbacks as well, but prefer not to throw the dawgs with them. I got the Thorne rod specifically for that purpose.

I really don't go to the pounders, but they're comparable in weight to the 13" SS. A 7.5oz Mag that stretches out to 15" is enough for me.

I have an 8' compre that I picked up at Thorne last year, I really like it for the larger baits, has a fast tip and really slings em out there. Decent price as well. I would buy another in a heartbeat.

Stratos, you throw mag dawgs with that? How does that go? I use a 7'6" and it throws the regular dawg great, but is a little light and too much work for the mags. But a good rod for the money (especially when you know the Shimano rep)

The 8ft XH Shimano Compre is a great rod for throwing mags. No way I would use mine for pounders. I have a 9ft Musky innovations. Rated 4-16oz I think. I went with that model instead of the 10-40oz because I wanted to be able to throw both mag sized plastics and the pounders, big curly sues, and big suzy suckers works decent enough for DCGs as well, other than not loading the greatest for casting. The rods rated to 40oz or so just seem to stiff to be very versatile. A 7.5oz mag dawg won't even load a rod that beefy.

    •   Then I wonder if they'll go back to the old way.
    •   Melt.   They should invite Obama and do a real roast of Donny boy.  
    • 6 million dollars per mile.    Oh My. Did Mexico cut the check for the down payment yet?  Has Merkel cut a check to Nato yet?    
    •   Plus+ 1 the carb. It's filling up the crank case with gas. After you clean or rebuild the carb tip it on the side with the plug out to drain the crank before trying to start it. Or if it's going to be a while take the plug out now and may be the gas will evap a bit by the time you get at the repair. good luck and let us know how it went. That was my first ATC.  
    • Ovi sure makes it look easy out there. What a beast.
    • And we know you like it raw.  No vaseline.   Pink steak, sure.  But raw burger just isn't my jam.   
    • AHH..... Memories.... I would have loved to have a odometer on our  Tri-Moto 125, had to have put thousands of miles on that 3 wheeler, burnt it down a few times when we were kids but Dad said you'll have to learn to fix it yourself! I'm not bringing it back to the dealer every time there's something wrong! We got good at new pistons and rings and gasket sets..... eventually we brought it to the dealer in pieces after we couldn't fix it anymore, think it was a rod bearing that eventually was it's demise, ended up getting a rippin' Tri-Moto 175 after that, those wheelers were our main transportation since we didn't have drivers licenses yet....... good times for sure.   You're carb is having issues, I would go there first, somethings not stopping the fuel from getting into your carb, either the float has a hole in it and isn't floating, or it could be sticking somewhere or your needle and seat are shot.   Give the carb a good once over and you should have your problem fixed.   Those were pretty basic 2 cycle engines, I don't think they even had reed valves.   Mike    
    • I planned on getting seeds and starting them at home, I won't be up there until late April. I have planted squash up there and they did not grow, I will look at blue hubbard, I have not had/grown them before, they sound interesting.
