Selecting the right Rod, Reel, and Line for Your Walking Bait Arsenal
 


 


Taking Aim with Megabass's Destroyer F8-78X Mark 48
Cosmetically, the Mark 48 is a carbon copy clone of the Onager. In fact, if you line up the two rods' reel seats, there is about a two inch difference in handle lengths, and a one inch difference to the tip.

The Search for One : Lew's Pro-Ti TLPT170M
Lew's stepped up to the plate recently with a new, top end series of rods for their bass market and we managed to get our hands on one. Here's our take on the Team Lew's Pro-Ti TLPT170M casting rod.

Shimano and G.Loomis Launch Limited Edition Bantam MGL & IMX-Pro Combos
For the first time in the two decades that the G.Loomis brand has been part of Shimano the company will soon offer anglers a limited edition combo which includes a limited IMX-PRO rod matched up with the proven performing Bantam MGL baitcasters.

Wait for It, Wait for It... Abu Garcia's IKE Delay Series
Sometimes, you just want to tie one on, toss it out, and crank it up. Abu Garcia realizes that moving baits are a staple of any bass fisherman's arsenal and in the recent refresh of their Mike Iaconelli signature series of rods, they included a collection of seven rods in a sub-series dubbed "Delay" just for this.
A Mix of Handling and Power Voodoo in the Witch Doctor Shaman Rods
There are a lot of rod manufacturers out there, and while Witch Doctor rods may not be a household name among fishermen, the company does have a strong and passionate following among bass anglers that are looking for a high performance rod that isn’t just another “me-too” mass produced import. For our very first in-depth look at the brand’s offerings we put the company’s flagship Shaman Series to the test.
A Spinning Rod with Multiple Personalities : Denali's Lithium L883MS Multi-Spin
I took the opportunity to ask Major League Fishing Pro Jeff Kriet if he has a favorite in Denali's lineup. Without hesitation he chose to highlight a stick he feels doesn't get enough attention and that stick is the subject of today's review. Here's our look at Denali Rods's Lithium Series L883MS Multi Spin.
ARK Rods's TS73MHFC May Not Be a Printer, But It Is Money
Ark Rods is an intriguing manufacturer. Seemingly out of nowhere they burst onto the scene with an array of smartly priced, smartly styled, performance driven series of sticks. We've been working out way through their Tharp series having good experiences with each stick thus far, and the subject of today's article had a name that was just too difficult to resist. Here's our look at Ark Rods's TS73MHFC Money Maker.
Bub's Punch Rod Levels Up : iRod AIR IRA7104PRG-H
It's been some time since we've visited with a product from iRod Fishing. Founder Matt Newman was recently in touch to share with us some new models added to both their Air and Genesis II lineups. Today, we take a look at a stick designed by Western Pro, Bub Tosh. Here is iRod Fishing's AIR IRA710PRG-H.
Are You Worthy to Possess the Power of Megabass's Warhammer?
Zander and I have been busy getting acquainted with the new, extended models of Megabass of America's current Destroyer lineup, but one stick from the original introduction has been on my list since its debut in 2017...
Daiwa Introduces a Refreshed Black Label Series - the BLX Bass Rods
At last week's ICAST the spotlight at the Daiwa booth was primarily focused on the company's new Tatula Elite and Certate reels, but the company also launched a complete renewal of the Classic Black Label line called the BLX Bass Series.
Cranking It Up With Denali's Russ Lane Cranking Stick
The Attax AC722RL is a seven foot two inch (7'2") stick that somehow feels more like 6'8" in hand. For some strange reason, I keep thinking it's shorter than it actually is. Perhaps because it's so light and springy in action...
Filling out the Arsenal - A Hands on Look at the Newest Megabass Destroyer Rods
This season, in advance of ICAST, Megabass introduced five new casting and spinning models designed not only for particular applications, but also focused on actual baits in the brand’s own lineup. We hit the water with Kenichi Iiada, Megabass America's Product Manager, to find out more about the latest additions to the Destroyer collection.
Feed Your Enthusiast Soul : Conquest 842C MBR
Saving money and being practical with your tackle buying decisions is the responsible thing to do. Afterall, you really can catch the same fish with a $99 fishing rod as you can with an $800 one, right? If you consider such a purchase a waste, well, then there really is no need to spend that extra coin. However, for those of us who need a little more intrigue and performance, sometimes, nothing feeds your soul as well as that enthusiast piece of tackle.
Think Less, Fish More with Megabass of America's F5-75XX EMTF
The Extreme Mission Type-F (EMTF) is a seven foot, five inch (7'-5") stick made from Megabass of America's proprietary X47-ASL Metal Fiber Blank material code named kabt (ka-boo-toh)

 

 

The Power in IKE, Abu Garcia & Mike Iaconelli's MIKEC76-6
There's no denying one of the biggest personalities in the world of professional bass fishing is Mike Iaconelli. There's no denying his competitive spirit and raw enthusiasm. Abu Garcia recognized this when they signed him back in 2010 and after a start and stop or two, finally have a full line of signature series rods and reels to celebrate their relationship.
A Better Levante? Megabass Remakes their Mainstream Rod Series
This season Megabass has completely remade the Levante Series, following the recognizable actions of their popular Orochi XX Series, and introducing some of the features and refinement from their higher end rod lines. Over the last few weeks we have begun fishing the new Levante rods, and got the inside scoop on the design from Kenichi Iida, Product Manager at Megabass
Okuma Nomad Express – Freedom for Big Bait Anglers
How many times have you been traveling and come across some pristine water that you just knew would be holding some big fish and wished that you had your trusty rod and reel with you? Even better, armed with your swimbait rod?
Shimano and Jackall Prepare to Launch New Poison Adrena rods and Lures at the Classic
The Bassmaster Classic is upon us once again and a number of manufacturers are leveraging the show as a launch platform for new tackle. Shimano and Jackall have teamed up to introduce a refreshed line of Poison Adrena rods, as well as two new lures designed to enhance your bass hunting arsenal.

Fenwick Increases an Already Good Value in Their HMG
It was just last year that we shared with you our thoughts on Fenwick's HMG72M-MFC casting rod and wouldn't you know it, the series has been refreshed for 2018! This time around we made sure to get some more specifics about our review specimen so the components are much less of a mystery. Here's out look at the HMG's Search for One candidate, the HMG70MH-FC.

Taking Aim at "The One" with Ark Rods's Sniper Series
At the time of this writing, Sniper is ARK Rods's highest end series of rods. I say that because given how fast this company moves, there may be two or three lines above Sniper by the time I finish this article and it sees the light of the Internet! The SNP70MXC is a seven foot stick with a sophisticated black and grey color scheme
St. Croix's 8'8" Legend Glass : What's the Dealio?
The further your cast, the deeper your bait will run and the longer you can keep it in that precious strike zone. St. Croix has answered the call within their Legend Glass series of cranking sticks and today, we take a look at their 8'-8" LGC88HM.
Long Term Test: Dobyns Brings the Fury at a Great Price Point
While the new Xtasy rods are designed to be a halo product for the brand, one of the top selling lines continues to be the much more affordable and value oriented Fury Series. We have been putting the Fury 795 swimbait rod through the paces for over two years and it is time to see just how well this $129 dollar rod has held up. 

Crank It Up! Abu Garcia's Veritas Winch Cranking Stick
There are actually seven (7) sticks within the Veritas Cranking rod lineup including two of the new generation nine foot (9') cranking sticks! I'm not sure that I'm ready for that movement quite yet, so the stick I chose to take a closer look at is the VTSCW76-6.

ARK Rods Strikes at Value with their Viper VIP72MHXC
If the higher end series help to build a company's mystique, it's really the more value driven lines that builds the following. Anglers want a fishing rod they can put their hands on and fish, rather than one they can only admire at the tackle store, or perhaps more frustrating, only through pictures in reviews. Ok, maybe we're being a little extreme here, but there's no denying the allure of a nice, affordable fishing rod...
More than Just Finesse with Fenwick's HMG70ML-FS
We've taken a look at Fenwick's HMG series of rods before, but to date, our tests have always been with their casting gear. Naturally there's more to the HMG line than just the casting rods, so this year, for Fenwick's newly refreshed HMG line, we finally take a look at one of their spinning rods. Here now is our take on Fenwick's HMG70ML-FS spinning rod.

Megabass Valkyrie Rods Take Flight with New Shielz Hybrid Construction
Almost as if it was a stealth launch the Megabass Valkyrie rods are now available to domestic anglers, but just what are these rods, and how are they positioned? We spend a day on the water with Megabass Prostaffer and Big Bass hunter Oliver Ngy to fish and learn more about this new lineup of "adjustable" rods. 

A Dominating Combination - Ish Monroe's Tatula Elite AGS Equipped Frog Rod
Daiwa's Tatula Elite Signature Series rods cover the entire range of bass fishing applications and are designed by the very pro anglers which the individual rods are named and branded after. The company brings some of their top-end technologies and components into play in the series, including Bias graphite construction and AGS carbon guides.
A Gem Hidden Within Abu Garcia's Veritas Lineup - the VTSS70-4
As fancy, high performing, and desirable higher end rods can get, there will always be an interest! in sticks right around that magical $99 price point. To many anglers on a budget, and at one point in time even for me, this WAS high end. Abu Garcia has been making a name for themselves with good performing value priced sticks...

An Entire Combo for the Weight of One Reel Begins with Phenix's FTX-71MH
The FTX-71MH is a seven foot, one inch (7'-1") casting rod wrapped on a blank made of a blend of thirty and forty ton graphite bonded together with Phenix's own, proprietary nanolite resin. It is outfitted with Essex T-Ring guides with carbide inserts and features a reel seat that looks like a split version of Fuji's ACS reel seat.

ARK Rods Pierces the Sub $100 Stigma with their Lancer Bass Rods
At ICAST 2018, the company introduced a new entry level series of rods built from an IM8 blank with a retail price set at just under ninety dollars ($90)! Can a sub $100 rod really perform? Today, we take a look at the search for one candidate within this series, the Lancer LAC73MHFC to find out.
Putting a Twist on Spiral Wrapped Rods and Making them Affordable – The Riverside M2
Uribe Rods has not only fully embraced the spiral configuration but is actively trying to drive adoption by making their Riverside Series rods premium performers at a surprisingly aggressive price. Is it time for the masses to once again consider “twisted” guide wraps?
G.Loomis's 820S DSR GLX : A Top Notch Performer, but...
Once upon a time, in a fishing life, long long ago, my primary fishing pole of choice was a G.Loomis GL3 MagLite rod, so I was pretty anxious to get my hands on this GLX model.
Taking Another Spin with Phenix's K2
Phenix's K2 TX-713S is a seven foot, one inch (7'-1") spinning rod made from Toray's T46 carbon material. It features a split rear grip made of EVA foam, a Fuji DNPS reel seat, Fuji titanium framed, Torzite guides, and decorative wood accent pieces throughout the grip. It is a minimal, but refined build worthy of a flagship product.
A First Look at the Boldly Styled Upcoming Halo Rods Black Widow Bass Series
In the weeks leading up to the show we had the opportunity to fish a new rod line that Halo will be launching at ICAST called the Black Widow Series, which is based on a Japanese graphite blank and is designed for excellent response and sensitivity, all with a range of tapers and actions specifically created for bass anglers.
Make No Bones About It, The New Z from Kistler
When we heard about a refreshed rod series being built on a new blank rolled without the traditional scrim material, our interest was peaked. When this series is coming from Kistler Custom Rods, you know we had to get our hands on one of these sticks to check out the benefits - or lack there of - for ourselves. Here's our look at the 2019 ZBone ZB3LMH73.
Re-Enforcing the Viability of Spinning Gear, Megabass's New F4.5-74XXS
In March, we shared with you our first impressions of Megabass of America's refreshed Orochi XX lineup after a day on the water with CEO Yuskei Murayama and a collection of his late model prototypes. In late April, the production sticks arrived at their Northern California headquarters on a day I just happened to be there picking up some Destroyer sticks to fill out my collection...
ARK Rods Adds Value to Your Search With the IVK70MXC Casting Rod
In March of 2018, in their first official review here on TackleTour, ARK Rods's Invoker IVK610MLXS spinning rod  easily won our Best Value award for delivering a solid performing stick on a good blank. Does their formula translate well in a casting rod? We take a close look at the IVK70MXC to find out.

What the Finesse?!? A Sub $150 BFS Stick? Meet The 47

The T47C-370BCF is a seven foot stick built on a blank featuring a blend of thirty and forty tone carbon fiber by Toray. This is good quality graphite. Doomsday Tackle is making use of Fuji's micro sized Alconite insert guides with stainless steel frames and wraps them with a kind of vintage thread wrap design on the offwhite painted blank.
