9lb BEAST! Just varying my retrieve and fan casting with the FlapJack and when I ripped through brush I got stopped hard... She immediately jumped and I about went in the water when I saw she had 1 hook in the corner of her jaw. A soft rod is necessary when fishing with trebles and my T. Allen kept her pinned and on the hook. Thank you @BrandonScottAlt for the pictures! Enjoy Scouters!

    5. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @saltlife32 it's a T. Allen Rod. 7ft 2in MH power with a moderate fast action. Carbon Fiber blank too. Very light and sensitive. I love it

      @Jimmy_Lynch I went with SeaGuar abrazx 12Lb Fluoro I yet have to try.?

      @thedevman1 not bashing or giving lessons. Just stating what I do. I notice the memory in the Vanish too.

      Guy and rough on gear period lol. I broke the worm gear on a revo sx 4 months after I got it! So I need 12 lb fluoro with less memory. That vanish got Curly reall ...more quick. The seaguar is still strait
    12. thedevman1 0
      But not because of my knot or bad line... I forgot to loosen my drag after I respooled. It wasn't bad line just forgetfulness :/ . You may not fish the same ...more way I do with that line. I am a heavy cover
    13. thedevman1 0
      To clarify: my knots don't break and when I use Fluoro I'll make my knot and when I cinch it I keep the knot in my mouth as I cinch. Fluoro burns easy. I've ...more only been broken off by a bass 1 time ever,
    14. thedevman1 0
      Yer tryin to give me lessons or somethin? LOL anyway it's all personal pref. for line I use seaguar smackdown 65 lb braid and seaguar 12 lb fluoro. The vanish ...more kept breaking and was brittle.
    15. thedevman1 0
      Well I like both my rods. My drag on my MH is clamped tight at all times for my braid and jigs. He only exception is for open water. I'll loosen a click or 2 ...more my ML has a semi loose drag. I feel like

      @Esgar272 I'm not endorsing it or saying its the best, just that I haven't had too much trouble. I know there are better lines out there

      I'll give you an update if I decide to go with Vanish@Jimmy_Lynch
    20. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      A moderate fast MH with a proper set drag should have no issues.
    21. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @thedevman1 regarding the rods, with treble hooks you should have a looser drag and a MH powered Rod works fine, you just need the proper action like a Moderate ...more Fast NOT a fast. It's what I use and
    22. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      Wet it down and test it and I guarantee it could be tied better. It's that shock on hook set that pops the line although I haven't had a single failure on ...more a fish or snag
    23. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @thedevman1 I have not had any issues you just stated about the Vanish. Not endorsing it but that's my experience. The biggest thing with fluoro is the knot ...more strength. If you think your not is good
    24. thedevman1 0
      I have both. MH 7 ft 6 and ML 7 6. And yes missed fish same diff as hook rip. I'm a jig fisherman and MH reefs em out of the thick. I know LOL
    25. thedevman1 0
      @Esgar272 IMO vanish is horrible. It broke so easy and after only one weekend of use it had bends curls and nicks all through it. Switched to seaguar 12 lb test ...more and love it. P line XL is good too

      @SD_9 I didn't make it out there today. Plan on going tomorrow. What's up?
    37. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @Esgar272 I think that the Vanish has done me pretty well. I've caught Hybrid Bass on it and it has good abrasion resistance too. I got it for $10 plus a $5 ...more mail in rebate

      Looking for a new Fluorocarbon since BPS recently changed their white label and it's been getting a lot of bad reviews, and the Vanish is my next choice...how ...more much did you get the vanish for ?????????

    41. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @Esgar272 it's just Berkley Vanish. Trying it out because I got a good deal on it. Had some know issues today but luckily I check before casting and had to modify ...more my knot. Other than that it's alright

    59. Beautiful!
    60. Jimmy_Lynch 0
      @thedevman1 not so much missed fish but more the fact that a stiffer rod will pull the treble hooks out of a fish's mouth. A moderate fast action on a MH rod ...more is what I use and it's perfect.
    61. thedevman1 0
      On the soft Rod... Absolutely. Lots of fish missed by not knowing that
