Time spent with some Designo Goodness.

Vantage Semi Order DV7-C71HRS4 AVANT/2019 Morethan has put some good ones (6-7+ lbers) in the boat this past year including an 8. Extremely Sensitive, light, powerful and versatile. It’s shined in quite a few scenarios.

Can't wait to try a few of yours brother during our spring season. Ever since you took a few out on one of last seasons trips I was hooked. Gotta get my self a few of those before it gets impossible to find them.

I found a minty specimen of this very model, which should be arriving next week. Late to the party, bey hey. I was excited to see it come up and I'm even more jazzed after your write up. Just in time for spawn, which will be starting up in my parts as early as 3-4 weeks from now. Until then, some lovingly taken Designo porn of existing tools in my collection below.

@polkfish1 beauties. Lovin that lineup. You already know I’m a big Designo fan from some previous posts of mine on "another site". 

11 Designos currently reside in the stable and while I still haven’t fished a couple of them (the two pictured below), I have thoroughly enjoyed the other 9 thus far, so I can’t imagine being disappointed by the two most recent additions. I’ll have to post a family pic sometime soon. Have a few more I’d like to add to the stable. The Designo Family of rods is vast, with a ton of options out there.

You’ll love that Vantage. Do you know if it’s a level 6 or level 7 blank? (DV6 or DV7)

@rise I looked after I posted initially and it’s not quite yours. I’m pretty sure it’s the DV6-C71MR. So, a level below yours. At the price point I scored it, it makes sense. Sight unseen purchase of course. I’m beyond excited about this surprise score.

@polkfish1 any Designo is score, in my eyes. Great pickup. Congrats!

Look forward to hearing/reading your thoughts on it.

This rod just fell into my lap right as jerkbait season took off in my area. I wasn't sure what I'd use it for when the opportunity to pick it up showed itself, but it turns out to be a surgical tool for challow cranks and jerkbaits. The Vantage Avant DV6-C71MR. This has been fine half blind acquisition.
