Some casting from 6'6" med to 7'8" MH, and spinning from 6'6" med to 7'0" med 5-6 of both. Checked them out today, very nice on the casting rods, not sure about the "no handle on the spinning."

I will have to go and look at them as well. I seen them at a show last year but didn't play around with them to much.

Yesterday I picked up a 7'6" heavy classic carrot stick and I must say for as much as I can do with it right now this feels like a VERY nice rod. Super light for a 7'6" rod and great action looking forward to using it in Fl. in a couple weeks.

I want to look at that extra heavy 8'er they have for a flipping stick. Olski, maybe I'll swing in this weekend to take a look at them.

I bought the girlfriend the 7'8" heavy gold with the "new" quantium catalist (because they matched and i figured she would appreciate that). My thought is that it is a light weight combo the reel is small and will fit well in her hand and it will be something she will like to fish with. the combo feels great, i wish i had one. Oh well maybe next year. Jonah

Does anyone have any negative reviews of these rods? I've got a 6'10" mh casting gold on the way and hear they have good customer service and lifetime warranty. Can I go wrong? Unless I find a job I'll probably just put a citica on it. Any problems with the reel seat or guides?

    • that would be samanthasquatch

    • You can save the mapping data on an SD card. In order to create a map you will need the Zero Line Card. You will take the SD card and plug it into your PC. Down load the map data into the zero line software. The software than creates the map and uploads it to the zero line card. It is typically recommended to use an SD card for the data as once the zero line card is full of either maps or map data another card will need to be purchased.
    • whats a samsquatch?  lol
    • Nope....don't need friendseyeguy54..... It was a darn samsquatch!
    • Way to get him out MM!  I'm sure he appreciates it.
    • I believe some units come with maps of some lakes but probably wont have any real detail as far as contour lines.  I think most will have a map of the US but when you zoom in you wont get much for detail on lakes and If they do contours will probably be 5-7ft apart.  If you want to put data on a card you will need a zero line card for mapping. About $150 i think.  8 hours should give you quite a bit of mapping.  Best would be to buy from a retailer so someone with knowledge of the product can show you how to run it.  You might be able to take some snap shots of sonar and put on a blank card but don't think you can map with it. I would get a Lakemaster card for the area(s) you want to fish.  Worth every penny.
    • Turkey season is over for my nephew!! It was a long season with many hours spent in the blind. He seen more turkeys then ever before and had a toms close enough to grab. It is going to be nice to sleep in. Until fall turkeys!
    • Heading up to Devils in a couple weeks and again later on.  Doesn't look like a lot of activity on here.  Tryng to get an idea whats happening before I go.
    • I have been out the last two days locally and haven't set the world on fire. Caught a few each day, but fish have been scattered. Lake is loaded with curly leaf mats this year, so that hasn't helped things. Once that starts dying and weather warms up, things should pick up.
