Who's got one and has spent time with it on the water. My brand new "old stock" has been sitting on the rack, screaming for some water time along with the OPUS-1 Limited. Would love to hear some thoughts on it, what it excels at, etc.

I had the opportunity to pick one of these up locally and felt I couldn’t pass up this unique rod. Looking for feedback from those that have had experience with it and thought I would add to this thread. From the feel of it I think it will fill my needs for jig head rigs and drop shots

@tilb I have never owned that one but I do have a few slant bridges. Fishing with a slant bridges is like driving a classic car. It feels raw and communicates well, and you know you have a piece of history in your hands.

And she’s clean, too…

Congrats on that legendary addition, bud. I’ve since spent some time with mine. It’s got some great power in that lower 1/3-1/2 of the blank, but my only “wish” is that it had a hair softer tip section. That said, I’m really not complaining, as it’s a blast to fish with…just a little different at first. You’ll get used to it quickly, I hope. A truly special stick IMO. 

If not, send her my way…😉

Drop shots, wacky, bigger nekos, and some underspins have all been fun on it. Jigheads will be well within its comfort zone. Report back! 🤙🏼

@rise thanks for the feedback, I appreciate it. I'll have to wait for the winter months to pass to get some solid time on the water but will definitely report back. Until then I will be working on a few reel builds that I plan on sharing soon 👍

Only used mine a few times before selling the setup. Mostly tubes for smallies. The power is welcomed when the smallies dart to the currents. Like most OG MB rods it's on the heavy side and the blanks are slower. I wouldn't call this rod finesse at all, my opinion.
