HA!! Look to the right>>>KVD Tested and approved Hooks, how timely as they say in Brooklyn    CASE CLOSED MOOKS,,,perfect ~b~

As we say in the swamps of Jersey, CASE REOPENED!  You might not buy something because a pro uses it but you're paying his salary anyway or do you cast the metal to build your own reels?  Everything you buy is a result of some emotional response and here's the kicker, even if it's NOT buying something because you don't like the person who promotes it.  Thank you, come again!

I must have some type of emotions from you, been here since April 05 and 2 of your 6 posts are answering me, I am humbled and honored ::) :o ~shade
Money and emotions dont go together, Any gambler Will tell you that. I buy a product, test it, take it apart and test it some more, no emotions to me parting with any money I am way too cheap for that.So will  hookers for that matter! >:D
 I use ABU OLD Style reels( Over the last 2 seasons, been baitcating  for only 5 years) and Cableas rods, because DECADES of fishing with them have taught me what I like and what works for me. I am not a good herd member, its more fun being a solitary kind of guy., I do or dont buy because of anyone else but myself. I am a buyer for a group that gives away free fishing equipment to guys getting out of rehab or jail. it helps people learn how to have fun again. We do it from our own pockets a lot, I have been buying for this group for over 15 years, so I get to try a lot of mid priced stuff out, so and when we ask our members to buy for others I know its not for cheap crap that will not work.
Any way I never buy or dont buy based on anything else says or does, that is childish and foolish.
Whats your experience? Oh excuse me you are a writer, thats gotta count for something ~roflmao ~roflmao

About the only emotion you have stimulated is amusement, because you're a pretty funny guy.  I don't believe it's on purpose though. lo




almost forgot, those who question the resumés of others, generally have the thinnest qualifications themselves.

I have used all the equipment I ever talk about, fish at least 100 days a season : what about you, where you coming from? How long did you use the rod they just came out with but have not distributed, must be cool to be an industry insider. Did you get a hat and t shirt also? ::)

2009 marked 20 years in fishing local and regional tournaments, more local lately for medical related reasons.  In that time, I qualified for 4 New Jersey Bass Federation team tournaments, won a few club angler of year trophies and the like.  How many other hundreds of guys does that sound like?
I enjoy recreational fishing with my friends almost as much as the competitive nature of tournaments.  I like putting together the puzzle and if I may say so, I'm pretty good.  I realized I have a bit of writing skill and assisting other anglers of all interest levels provides some personal satisfaction.
Besides a few courses in advanced biology in college, I'm not academically qualified, if that's what your idea of "qualified" is.  My knowledge is hands on.  My association to Abu is casual.  Someone read a couple of my reviews and asked if I would like to try the new Veritas rod out and send back a few opinions.  No hat, no shirt, no towels.  That's not what I'm in it for, never have been.
As far as time on the water with the Veritas, about 3 hours with that thaw we had in the middle of January.  I'm cooped up in my house watching the snow fall and biding my time.
You see, for 35+ years the cash for my tackle has coming out of my own pocket.  Some of it well spent, other cash not.  I've used Megabass, Evergreen and other high line Japan tackle and some big name American tackle.  I've also used regular Joe on the block tackle, Daiwa generally but some St. Croix and Falcon.
I can tell you this much, from what I've used of it, handled it and examined so far Abu's got a winner in the Veritas.

There ya go, I respect where you coming from, and I know that you have the abiluity to judge a rod. Somethings you can almost tell with the first use, most I like to feel them out for a season. If you werent on the wrong side of the Hudson river, you might be a nice fella! ~shade

I'm just waiting to see how it feels with a fish on the other end of the line. 



BTW, I'm not the one on the wrong side of the Hudson ... ;D

BK, this kinda goes with your post about watching pro tournaments. I totally understand your aversion to advertising. Everyday we are shown tons of new stuff and they try to make us believe that we need it. That's part of their job. There are a lot of great products out there and there is also a bunch of junk. You have to sort through the BS to get to the good stuff. One good way to do that is to see what the pros actually use. When there is $500,000 on the line, they will not be using junk even if there sponsor wants them to. They might promote the junk before and after the tourney but they will be using something that they have extreme confidence in during the tourney. If Ike was using a new rod, you can bet that's it's a decent rod. He would not use a broomstick even if a broomstick company sponsored him. That doesn't mean that it is now the best rod on the market and that we need to run out and buy one, but if your in the market for a new rod, it might be one to look at. If it is for sale at a good price then I might buy one if I needed a new rod. The top 3 guys in the tourney used lipless cranks. From what I saw and heard , KVD used a gold color, Red Eye Shad exclusively. I'm not going to run out and buy a dozen of them, but some guys will. However, if I will be fishing in similar conditions then I know that bait works very well and that's more than I can say for half the stuff hanging on the rack. If you watched and listened to the classic and post conference, then you probably heard about the treble hooks that KVD helped design. They are a short shank treble. One common problem with lots of baits is that the trebles hook together and foul the bait. every time that happens is a wasted cast. That might not mean anything but a little frustration to the average Joe, but it's lost time and opportunity to me. KVD switched the stock hooks on his red eye baits to a bigger #2 size of these hooks. That let him have bigger hooks with no fouling problems. That led to better hook ups and less wasted time. I would not know about this if I didn't watch the classic and the interviews. I will buy some of these hooks and put them on crank baits that I often have trouble with. I won't change every single hook I have because that would be a waste on baits that work just fine. My final point here is that not everything they say is true but not everything they say is BS. Oh, also You will probably never see a flashing lazer lure in my tackle bag, even if Mike uses one during a tourney. It might work just fine, but so would any other crankbait of the same size

Thanks Kevin; I am not responsible for any remarks made from the West Side of the river ~roflmao

BTW Kevin: I switch out all my hooks on Jitterbugs and spitting Images, they come with crap. I switch em out with VMC or Mustad trebels, same size what ever is on sale, they do just fine. On the Jointed bugs the tend to hook front to rear, no more than a Floating Rapala, so I can live with that.

Thats a Fenwick Elite Crank Bait rod, ( oh my , he used a rod not from his sponsor, at least its another Pure Fishing Company)and you guys are getting all worked up because some pro is using a rod,now you are convinced that your game will improve using the same rods and baits as all the other pros. It's all a gimmick, the whole thing to sell equipment,.The sooner you realize that , the sonner those other guys will have to work for a living like you fellas. I aint a hata of anyone in particular just the whole BASS/FLW crap to pick everyones pockets. NOT MINE!!!!!!!!!!!! ~rant

I wouldn't say that, Ike and Boyd both had the laser lure, only one motor was blown.  Had to be the rods.

I am shocked and saddened you guys could not figure out what actually happened here, and i dont even watch the pros. KVD( no relation to BVD) gave some of his line treatment to Ike, in a deliberate act of sabotage. As Ike reeled in , the KVD sprayed onto the spark plugs grounding them out ~shhh

Aside from the sponsors announcement, the majority of the posts on that thread are talking about why the color would have worked and about other baits the pros were throwing... I don't really understand what you are trying to prove  :-\

The machine , designed by Ray Scott still works. Pro uses product, pro wins some money, pro endorses product, in this case down to the special hooks, many people buy that product, thinking that makes them a better fisherman
 It's a hustle, more sophisticated than a street hustle ( like 3 card Monte) but not as sophisticated as a TV ministry

It is not whats in your wallet, tackle box,boat or rod locker that improves your fishing, it's between your ears. Thats about as clear as I can make it.

I don't think anyone will argue with you there. Of course it works, it's called advertising, and it has been around a lot longer than professional bass fishing.

There is a happy medium between just mindlessly buying everything thrown at you and being a Bass-Fishing Ted Kaczynski. I know I personally just don't go out and buy everything I see on TV, but some of this stuff actually does work, and the only way you will find that out is by trying it out for yourself... Which means buying it in most cases.

WHY WOULD YOU COMPARE ME TO A RABID TERRORIST?
Thats much funnier than any ball breaking I have done on the net in years ~roflmao
If someone takes time to prove a point you do not agree with , then you compare them to a person who planted bombs and killed and maimed folks? I am glad I never had to turn down a loan for you, you might link my name with Mike Vick or even worse Richard Nixon, now that would be worth fighting over :o

Thats cool I learned not to take crap on the net seriously. What matters is what my friends and family think, everything else gets a slide or an argument, there is another 20 inches of snow falling on PA, and this is jsut a way to pass the time until it all melts and i can get on the water again.

You know, to the best of my recollection, the only "Classic" winning bait I ever bought right away was Hank Parker's spinnerbait.  Reason:  real gold blades.

 The rod you all are asking about, that Iconelli was using is a Fenwick Elite Crank rod, its the one in the picture originally that I saw, it was not an ABU rod, the 2 color rod was a Fenwick and yes there is a feeding frenzy starting over the yet to be released rod.Check out the 4 or 5 top forums they are all abuzz about the upcoming Verat How ever its spelled. I have nothing against ABU , they are the only bait casters I use, Iconelli has them, because he is being paid to Carry and use them, look how folks are salivating, good move on Pure Fishing, getting him exclusively. Just because he uses them does not man it will make nay of us better fishermen.Thats is where the gimmick and herd mentality come into view
 I would rather be the wolf than a deer in a herd

you know, I agree with everything you posted here...(not unusual, you pretty much speak plainly)...

I've gotten away from 'brands' so much...but this I will say:  once I use it, the final decision is in my hands...

For instance, I dropped $200+ on some Cumara's this past spring...replaced a couple rods that were 'half the price'...and I'm not sure I can tell the difference to tell you the truth...and while we can all get worked up over Daiwa, Shimano, ABU or some other reel/manufacturer...truth is, good quality products are out there and there's not necessarily a lot of difference between them in their ability to deliver trouble free high performance.

I still occasionally use an Ambassador C4600 (the old technology) that I love...that sucker, even with ONLY 3 ball bearings is a heck of a reel...

and if you 'super tune' those old ambassadors, they're even better...

Still, I love, absolutely love my new Curado E series reels...and wouldn't trade them for anything...well, everything but the color...I'd have loved to see the lighter green they had on some of the old D-series BSF reels...

I am thankful that so far they've avoided the black and yellow reels... ~roflmao
