Best Rod for Ned Dreds - DRX 752 SF
« on: September 20, 2020, 12:02:13 AM »

I caught a few today on the Dobyns Xtasy DRX 752 SF rod using a Daiwa Ballistic LT2500 with 8 pound K9 fluoro blend.  It's just a great rig all the way around for the technique...

It's got the wire keeper for putting a soft plastic on it, but the rubber skirt actually hangs down around the hook when its in the water, so I don't fish it with a trailer.  You certainly could.  Just not my preference with this particular bait and rod.   When it's in the water, the feather undulates when moving and flares when stopped.  It's a 3/32 head with Daiichi hook with a wire keeper.  All told, it's probably 1/8 as it sits.

Also the K9 blended fluoro is my go to line for any moving bait.  I also use it in 8 pound for lightweight bottom baits and drop shot, as I can't get the straight fluoro to behave on my little Diawa LT2500 reels in anything over 6 pounds.  I love the Diawa LT's, but they are very picky about what line I can put on them.  I've found the K9 blend 8 pound to be perfect for them.

I use the K9 blend on all my 3000 size spinning reels in 10 or 12 pound test for weightless flukes, other weightless craws, etc.  It's perfect for that.  I also use it with 3/8 swing head jigs on my DX 764 spinning rod using little chigger craws slow swimming it near bottom.  Works great for that too.

I use the K9 100% in 12 and 15 pound test on my baitcasters for jigs, etc.  I only use baitcasters for heavier baits.  I'm deadly accurate with my spinning rods and I can do things with them like letting the bait drop, that I can't do with a baitcaster....

Nice so no braid at all ? I like braid for top water only . Iíll use it with a leader sometimes for in water but honestly I donít mind the stretch of just fluoro on my jig rods. I use mono for everything else . Just canít seem to duplicate the castability with other lines that I get with mono

I very rarely use braid.  We have almost no vegetation, just brush, trees and rocks.  I'll use braid if someone forces me to flip/pitch in the trees or brush.  Otherwise, I'm using fluoro or fluoro blend.  I use mono for all of my topwater baits, but that's the only place I use mono.

If I were ranking stretch of the products I use from nothing to stretchy, it would be braid, fluoro, fluoro blend and then mono.  I use Sunline Natural mono right now, as I caught it on sale and bought a few spools of it.  It has been great for my topwater baits.

I'm fishing a tournament next weekend and I'll be a co-angler, so getting my travel tackle box ready.  Here's a better picture of what the Ned Dreds would look like in the water.  Also a good pic of the wire keeper for a soft plastic, if you're so inclined...
