Picked up my last little pile of stuff before bass season starts up. Purchased a Curado 200E7 to go with my Legend Tournament 7'H frog rod...and some tackle haha.

This combo feels so right and light. Very excited to get out Froggin!

It does feel a bite nicer, you were right...it balances out a bit better too. Enjoy the revo, makes for a nice Pike/musky reel...its a workhorse!

Hard to beat a LT series rod. Nice setup!

 

Do you have or have used the 7'6MH LT ? It's a telescopic so im a little iffy on it and its much cheaper than the Xtreme 7'6

 

Has anybody used the LT pitching rod I guess is my sub question...much better price point but not to key on it being telescopic.

 

Thoughts?

I think thats the same rod I saw Spiel doing a tip eye replacement on..just keep a look out for that. It seemed it wasn't on very deeply.

The curado is a great reel with the Castaic being only slightly better for pitching and flipping, but too much more money to make up for the advantage it gives you.

That's what I was wanting to hear! As long as I don't overly "open and close" the telescopic part of the rod it will hold it's strength. But...Xtreme rods are sick...it might be worth it to get the lightest rod for something like a 7'6. Don't get me wrong, I'll do my hmwk and find the best rod for the price...we shall see what i get, wont be buying another rod/reel until september time.

I've had my 7'6" LTB for a couple years now. Awesome rod. Also, I'm sure you've Karl on Extreme Angler TV really haul on his. No issues.thumbsup_anim.gif

Curado baitcast reel is aowsome! I have 2 have love them so much. Actually curado is desigend for weightless & fitness fishing. The lower version of curado named "citica" also worked fine for me.

The Cumara was supplied by Dave Mercer for a charity auction held by OFC. I was the high bidder.
