EG IRSC 71MH Super stallion aurora
This rod arrived over the holidays. Still have not had a chance to fish it. First impressions are the it feels much lighter than any EG rod I own, but my stable of EGs has tended toward the heavier models. As usual, it is extremely well balanced with this IS lariat. It floats. I was not intending on using this real with it, but it just fit so well for this initial look. Bite has still been pretty slow with this cold front and I think I'm still at least 7-10 d away from a possible first wave of spawners. I'll report back when I have a chance to fish it.
Wowzers, that's a beautiful combo. Can't wait for more on the water review with lots of tight line results.
Outstanding, waiting on mine…not so patiently…taper close to the TKIC?
just and amazing setup you have there.. what a treat that you got it for the holidays.
I believe that rod is the limited edition special order only correct?
@rise: taper seems true to the OG, but can’t say for sure until I pull some fish out the water. It’s been dink city for me the last couple of weeks, but that’s changing fast. A little warm front just came through too, which will wake up some early birds to the shallows in the next couple days I’m sure.
@goldrod Yes; I put an order in for this one several months ago when evergreen put out a call. I imagine that some may appear at retailers, but I was pretty sure at that time that I wanted an example.
