I bought a Sunfish and Perch Genz stick two seasons ago and really like them. Would like to try a JM and a Thorne Bros someday, but am really happy with the genz sticks, haven't had a problem yet.

The new genz rods(especially the gold series) are execellent quality from my experience. I highly recommend their deadstick. Yeah if you can just get the stick and not the reel.

Time will tell with the Genz rod. I do know that the Mitchell line and the Thorne would serve you very well. One will not need to be concened with the quality with these rods.

I think Genz is making his own line away from Nature Vision I can call him in the next day or two to confirm.

Nature Vision has a new line coming out called Rip City. Don't know for sure if they will make the Genz combos this year

I have 8 Genz gold rod and reels. I love them. I still have my old rods and reel but don't like them as well as the Genz combos. I haven't tried any other of the other combos, but I think I will be sticking with the Genz for a while.

    • Looks like we have at least 1 faithless elector so far.
    • Of the 2 candidates that had a chance at winning, Hillary was the only one that had anything resembling a plan to help rural America. Hillary's plan just didn't resonate because it basically was modernizing rural America, and rural America wants to relive a past that is no longer achievable.    Unfortunately a libertarian is probably an even worse choice for rural areas. While a libertarian would cut federal taxes, they also would significantly cut spending to things like infrastructure where rural areas have a disproportionate maintenance cost to local tax revenue ratio. The Libertarian "privatize everything" or "leave it to the states" mentality would likely lead to many roads becoming toll roads in order to pay for maintenance. And those tolls are by and large paid by locals, increasing costs of local goods and making area businesses less competitive.
    • Well, OSU is going to the playoff, and Wisconsin and Michigan are getting at large bowls. That leaves Minnesota as the #4 remaining team.

    • I know of which you speak and they were full when I stopped by for my new fav Ghost Pepper beef sticks on the last weekend. Well I stopped by on the 1st-2nd and last weekend for the beef sticks! I use to cut up all my Deer until I and the wife wanted some of those more fancy brat's and sausage I just couldn't do.
    • My FXR sled jacket and bibs have the F.A.S.T Flotation Assistance system Technology in them so I get dlb duty out of the suit sledding and Ice fishing. Right now Cab's up in Rogers has the FXR outdoor suits but they aren't cheap. Love mine.    
    • Those look Great. Most of the time just crock potted them to death! 
    • Glad to hear it isn't the local 172 processor people complained about last year.    I was happy to have the needed "facilities" back this year.  Set up, skinned, sliced, diced, vacuum packed and cleaned up in 3.5 hours.  No, that doesn't include the grind, but we do take that in.
