I just picked up my quiver stick on monday. You couldn't pry it out of my hands with a crowbar. I have 11 other rods and nothing compares to them, but the quiver stick is unreal.

walleye-St. Croix Legend.

Panfish- A Guide Series super ultralight rod I picked up last year basicly the same as the TB powernoodle at a fraction of the price. I just wish they still made them.

    • One day, Donald Trump is going to look a reporter straight in the eyes on national TV and say "I never ran for President".
    • Overkill is good, fixing things at -20 is bad.
    • You will probably have to keep a fan on that Lexan to keep it from completely frosting up, keep the original window close if it was a thermopane.  It wasn't clear if you could or couldn't see out the frosted glass.
    • Maybe a better way to put it is if you vote for Trump you get what you don't deserve...
    • Well I'm sorry but one of your lesser of two evils is going to be the next president.  If you want a continuation of Obama's economic polices, 550% increase in unvented refugees, obamacare, liberal Supreme Court justices,common core education, dilapidated military, all the lies/scandals, etc vote for Hillary, Stien, or Johnson.  Then own it if she is elected.
    • I had the winegard anser and that one was great, even in white out fog I had signal. I purchased and ice castle in 2015 and it came with the crank up and love the crank up, it take a little longer sometime to find signal, but one less thing sitting around.  If you could have an automatic finding one mounted to your house that would be the route I would go.
    • Anyone do any portable mods this off season????? Lets see what you have done
    • Wrong as usual.  If I vote for Trump and it turns out he doesn't do what he says he's going to do then I will get what I deserve.  I know this concept is hard for you and others to understand.  Let's take the list of Supreme Court Justices he says he going to choose from and all of the sudden he starts nominating from left field.  I will get what I deserve.  You will be trying to keep the drool off your keyboard.  
    • Meter: continuity check on wires and fuse separate  If it was me, just for piece of mind (not knowing other peoples electrical hack jobs. Id fish new ones on the old ones, pull them through connect to new receptacle. Likely a hack splice in there or damage.
