    Beautiful fish and rod. Thanks for the report. I think you can get info on this same series on the Abu's Australian site.

    Great review and report Stan! That rod sounds similar to the Yamaga Blanks 71 TZ Nano. Definitely softer than my other rods but not sure whippy.

    I lived in Kingsport TN for a while right out of college and fished Boone regularly for all fish species. It was a super nice lake until the issue with the dam and it was basically drained down to river channel pool. I am glad to hear of some fish catches up that way in Boone and hope they can get the dam fixed in the coming years.

    I purchased the Shimano Soare BB and it really doesn't get much love around here but I think it's an excellent rod. It has a perfect panfish action if you ask me. One thing I have to do differently when fishing for the big redear here on Barkley, is I tighten the drag down when fishing near cover. I guess that's a common tactic for literally everyone fishing near cover but it works with the Soare. My Triplecross has more horsepower, I don't have to tighten the drag down nearly as much...
    When you first start into JDM it can be a nerve racking process for sure. But after you have bought several rods...and different brands......you kind of learn what to expect.

    Regards

Anyway, as the old Cheese Orb is filling, I went back to known bedding areas in search of the Cricket Crunchers, and they were home yet again preparing for the perpetuation of the species.

    ?Size was good early, no wind yet. The Finetail with the Sunline Braid was called to action, and it was mega-fun with the hard pulling quarry on the other end.

    A 9 inch Gill in public waters, Iíll take those all day long. Two fish break offs hurt my feelings, one was Mr Small jaws who acted like he just won the Gold Medal in high jump and high dive.

    The Lemon Meringue TM with a Crappie Nibble in the clearer calm water was the ticket. They liked it. The jig head is from Decoy, 1g with a #8 hook and a keeper. I brought along the newest hen in henhouse for some more seat time....the 6.10 ABU Garcia Eradicator Finesse. With 10 Torzite Guides (4 different sizes) (Corto has 8, not Torzite) and all kinds of fancy words describing the blank and materials, it is becoming my favorite stick to swat at these beautiful fish.

    The rod handle is a little different than what I am accustomed to, but cleaning is a breeze. No fish slime on the foam or cork, advantage ABU. The Daiwa Presso seems right at home on this rod, and this pink braid is the Daiwa Brand, again, funny name with Silicone no Hibikki? Softer than the 6.10 Corto, the rod leans towards the Mebaru category. Comparison notes, you do get some great feedback from the Corto, stiffer middle section and bite detection is felt through the middle section as a jolt almost, at least with Braid. The ABU bite detection is softer, not muted, but when setting the hook it just feels smoother. Maybe the extra guides or the blank exposed handle.... it is just different, almost like the fish hook themselves. Back to the fishing, as the wind got up I switched to a Grasshopper colored TM with the Daiwa Gekajibin 1g hook due to the muddied stirred up waters.

    Another 9in came to hand, he got a pass as I had already filled my quota of the day.

    20 came home, 30+ stayed at the lake to take care of future business. A tape measure and a clicker keeps it real.

    These will go to the freezer for future meals. Panfish are great on the plate.

    Great write up and beautiful fish. All of my high end rods with solid tips the fish literally do hook themselves. You are on a roll with the gear....it took me 8 years to acquire what I have and I think you are about to catch me in just 2 years....LOL. Found out Daiwa is coming out in the Fall with a new Presso Limited AGS rod......that should be interesting and I hope they have an XUL model.

    Regards
