  4. Hi man. Im a weekend fisherman. I have 3 rods that are 99 bucks each. All 7 med heavy. 😆. Im too broke to buy more. One of my rod has a lure rating of 3/4 to 1 1/2. Is that enough for a glidebait or is a heavy rod better?

  5. GREAT VIDEO like always. I've spent most of my night following videos where you refer on subject to another.
    I really have learned a lot of great information that I've been able to use from you.

  6. You mentioned putting 10lb test braid on your spinning reel and attaching leader line, some of which was a higher pound test than the braid. Has that ever caused a problem? I have wondered before if there are some “rules” for braid to leader connections considering the pound test? I appreciate this video as I am an angler who fished on a budget and out of a kayak. I can’t afford a bunch of rods and reels and I can’t take “that many” (about 5 or 6 right now) on my kayak anyway.

  7. Hi I bought the ark Moneymaker and ordered the Bruin ELS 7.1 I got the rod but the reel is not available and they couldn't give me a ship date. Is there another reel you would recommend?

This Was a Great Video And Helped Me To Be Able To Up My Arsenal With The Baitcasters💪🏼💪🏼💪🏼 You DID Mention Spinning Very Briefly, But Could You Maybe Make a Video About The Guy Who ONLY Fishes Spinning? Lol For Real Though, I Think a Lot Of People Would Enjoy It As Well. I Myself Know a Bunch Of People Who Just Prefer Spinning Only, And I'm Just One Guy In One Town In One State(eastern NC). Just Sayin lol. But Love Ya Bro, Keep Up The Good Work. I Can Tell You're a Good Dude And I Really Appreciate What You Do💯💯💯

  9. Tyler, i have been bass fishing in South Africa for many years but i still find it hard to understand the difference between fast and moderate tips on the rods. How do i test it when buying a rod.

  10. Hey man. I am purchasing the bruin reel from sportsman outfitters and I had the money maker in my cart when I noticed they have a Memorial Day sale on ark pro rods right now. It’s buy one get one for $19. What would you do? Buy the money maker anyways or take the deal for two rods? The two come out to the same price as a money maker. I just don’t know if there’s a big enough difference between the Tharp series rods and pro rods!?!? Help!

  14. We don’t mean any disrespect sir but plainly put, you talk-to-much. We suggest more action and less talking… 🎣 p.s. have a great day!!!
