What do you all think so far? There's a few items that I'm going to have to try out. How about the new Lowrance 3d structure scan? That is something else.

I really like that Lowrance 3D. I was thinking about switching to Garmin, but may have to stay with Lowrance.

Also liking the Megabass big square bill and line through swimbaits. Lucky Craft has a neat new hard swimbait. Will have to check out the Under Armour rain suit in person.

Not excited about any of the new rods and reels.

LEVANTE Blank descriptions
From our hands to yours. Harnessing decades of Japanese design expertise, Megabass built the LEVANTE to the precise needs of North American anglers. Each model features a multi-axis blank and the latest innovation in Japanese carbon, PYROFIL™, to unlock the potential in each and every cast.

F4.5-70C
Flat-Side Special

The F4.5-70C is the ultimate treble hook stick, ideal for crankbaits, jerkbaits, and topwaters in shallow-water applications. With that all-important smooth, parabolic bend for sure hooksets, the F4.5-70C loads confidently for accurate casts and safely landing keepers.


F5-610C
Spinnerbait Special

The F5-610C is built for power, versatility, and pinpoint accuracy. The 6’10” length and medium fast taper combine to deliver superior load characteristics for close-quarters accuracy and decisive hooksets, bringing spinnerbaits to life.


F5-72C
Diablo Spec-R

Excellent for vibration baits, swim jigs, Texas rigs, weightless worms, and even larger jerkbaits like the Oneten Magnum, the F5-72C’s fast action and perfect balance provide effortless performance.


F5-72CG
Swingfire

The F5-72CG’s composite blank transitions from graphite to glass, offering an otherworldly combination of carbon’s lightness and backbone, and glass’ forgiveness and feel. Perfect for fast moving crankbaits, and squarebills like the S-CRANK.


F5-75C
Extreme Mission Type: F

The F5-75C is built both for bombing casts and accurate close-quarters pitching. The 7’5” length and fast taper loads quickly and smoothly for explosive hooksets and control. Ideally suited for vibration baits, vibrating swim jigs, jigs, and light Texas.


F5-711CG
Launcher

The F5-711CG has the powerful carbon backbone necessary to launch deep-diving cranks, and that smooth, parabolic bend for sweeping hooksets. The glass tip section delivers just the right amount of forgiveness, capturing bites with confidence.


F6-70C
Tour Versatile

The F6-70C is built to inspire confidence and control. Designed with a fast taper for casting and pitching jigs and worms to cover, the smooth loading blank is also ideally suited for larger topwaters and frogs.


F7-72C
Perfect Pitch

The F7-72C delivers the power of a flipping stick with the maneuverability of a casting rod. Perfect for pitching, flipping, and casting jigs and worms in heavy cover, the F7-72C is designed for precision accuracy and devastating hooksets.


F8-79C
Flipping Special

The F8-79C is outfitted for medium to heavy duty flipping and pitching in the heaviest cover. With a perfect blend of lightness, balance, and power, the F8-79C delivers the versatility and control to perform a 10ft flip and 30ft pitch back to back.


F9-711C
Leviathan 711

The F9-711C is built for maximum power and control for big swimbaits, punching, and umbrella rig applications. With a carefully tuned handle length for comfortable casting and rod work, the Leviathan brings a new level of dominance to your arsenal.


F3.5-70S
Shaky Head

The F3.5-70S has the perfect balance of tip softness and backbone necessary to bring soft plastics, small paddletails, shaky heads, and smaller hardbaits to life, combined with the length and taper for decisive hooksets and control.


F3st-610S
Stinger Shot

The F3st-610S brings unparalleled bite detection to the drop shotting game with its ultra-sensitive STINGER TIP. Designed for light line nose-hooking and wacky rigs, the STINGER TIP is a trigger that responds to the lightest pressure, landing tough bites.

The swinging hook jig by strike king seems interesting. I am a big fan of the 13 fishing omen black rods, hate to see them go to the full cork grip on them though. I want to see the flw schedule. What day do they release the schedule?
