    The Diawa xul was delivered today. Put an Abu Garcia ALX spooled with 0.2 pe line on it. Walked over to the pond tobplay around. The first 5 or 6 cast all needed up with 3 to 4 inch blugill/sunfish. Even those you could fell every turn they made on the way in. Casted in a different direction and hooked a 9 inch crappie. Only got to play for about 10 minutes as I need to pack and get on the road for National Guard drill tomorrow.
    The ALX is heavier than the Theta MGX, with the Beast SP falling in between them weight wise.

    Was using a homemade jig. Small split shot crimped on a #12 jighook. Less than 1/32. Probably closer to 1/64. With a trout magnet and waxworm for a little bit of meat.

    Good fish for a short trip. Now all you need is time to play, enjoy the new rod.

    Have more waiting in future. The Presso AIR AGS arrived last week, haven't had time to really try it out though. The Carabus does look like it is moving just a little slow.

    I decided to order a 21 Diawa Presso 1000s reel from Amazon this morning for the Presso rod. It should be arriving just about the time I'm leaving for my 2 weeks of National Guard training. I also order 3 of the SLP works spare spools for it from aliexpress. They should be getting to my house about the time I'm done with training. Hopefully towards the end of June I'll have time to use the new rods and reel.

    The carabus was to be delivered yesterday. But the mailman took it back to the postoffice when there was no one to sign for the package. My wife picked it up for me today. It will be waiting for me when get home for Father's day.
