11 posts in this topic

I was looking to add a rod or 2. I have been really happy with my old berkley lightning/genz rods, are the new dave gets rods the same quality?

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

Genz will have his line and Nature Vison will have the Rip City line of rods.

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.

    •   I sure like the sites your old campground kept open for weekenders. Best spots in the campground if you ask me.    
    • so leech, does your campground have festivities functions for there permy site people? ours had a big fish fry on the fourth with a little parade. they do a golfing event to. i heard they finally got some decent playground equipment for kids. there theory was theres fishing. they used to do a pot luck with a theme german, mexican..bleah blah.....but that required work and planning from the owners. took away from the beer drinking! 
    •   I have noticed that trend at seasonal campgrounds too. 20 some years ago when we started camping seasonal sites used to be full of folks 60+ but now it seems that there are a lot of young families in these sites.    The other trend I noticed is that lot rental prices have gone through the roof since then. 
    •   Well in the 12 years we have been at this campground it went from mostly old folks where if your Walker wheel was squeaking someone would run out with a can of WD-40 to stop the noise! Now a lot of young families with kids. Most of the year it's not to bad, but the Holidays can get a little crazy with the golf carts and beer flowing!   I don't let folks bother me much, I have two young grandsons so their in the mix!
    • I have definitely come to the conclusion that on those big 3 day holiday weekends its way more quiet and peaceful if i stay put at home.................even up north. hey i can have a fire and have cocktails at home too!!!!!!! the weekends to go are weekends prior to and after them big weekends!!!!!!!!!!
    •   Pretty much the same on enforcing some of the rules. The 4th was a Zoo and I'm sure the managers head was spinning trying to keep track of who all the kids running belonged too!
    • well it didnt help our family has a cabin up in itasca county and have had it since 1965. the camper took time away from there. granted the camper was 30 minutes from home the cabin 3 1/2 hours but there is agood city block of woods between us and the neighbor.............and we have noone on the other side. i dont mind a little socoilizing but that peace and quiet is right up my ally.   so leech does your park charge extra for additional company not your immediate family? the campground we were at did, but they didnt enforce it fairly. some were forced some got to slide. oh and there were alot of other issues i got fed up with!!!!!!!
    • No ones making fun leech. Just made a statement. I've never seen one like that before. I've seen the hand ones curved, but not the powered one. Guess it could be like the hand one. I could be wrong. Be interested to see if they sold one like that, or someone put a power head on it. I'll let you take over now.

    • Get both shells it will cost a little but you will know which patterns better out of your gun. I use 3.5 #4's they pattern the best out of Mossberg but 3 #5's are way better out of my remington then #4's . 3.5 #4 still pattern a lot better out of my Mossberg.
