so I thought I'd give a quick run down of some of the equipment I've been using. Honest feedback. I am a bargain buyer but will purchase top of the line things if I have the money and finances are good. So if your like me and looking for decent equipment at a decent price I hope this helps. I could give more specific detail if requested.

H20 express, hard baits; great plastic and good paint, hooks are awesome. Negative snap rings. Really suggest replacing them with better ones.

H20 express ethos rods. Awesome for the $$$$ hands down great deal. 4 out of 5 stars

Falcon low rider. Man this thing is light especially for a 7 ft rod. I will be buying more. If I have $$$

Dobyns savy: really solid rod, no complaints at all even lighter than the falcon but is a 6'6 that use for top water, same deal with the falcon $$$.

Lews reels: man are these awesome reels. I own the the 100 to 160 bb1. Friends suggest trying the bb1 pro but I see no reason to spend more money on a reel when the 100 $ speed spool is all I could ask for out of a reel.

Soft plastics: I mainly use zoom and love them designs. Fluke,brush hog, trick worm of course all 5 stars. Now for some reason I can get away from using berkley power worms. Love the power worn and are strong plastics. I wish zoom was a little tougher. Senkos. Used all types but the Yamamoto is by far the best. Yum, big bites I don't suggest because the baits only last a couple bites.

Fortrex: best thing I've ever bought for my boat.ill leave it at that!

Line: 15 pound big game and 12 pound trilene. Both 5 stars.

I have never had a Senko outlast a Yum dinger catching fish. Senkos are softer.

i may have to give the yum another shot then. I was catching smaller fish when I was using them. The smaller ones tend to rip the bait more.

I catch a lot of fish on the Yum Dingers. I also throw Sinkos in colors that Yum doesn't have except for Green Pumplin and Watermelon Red. I have those two colors in every brand of stick baits that i use.

I seldom say this but I am very impressed with the value in your array of tackle. I agree with the dollar spent on the Yamamoto product, used pretty much every variant and came to the conclusion that when fished weightless, it has no peer. I have some pretty high end tackle (Shimano reels,G.Loomis NRX rods etc.) but if it was all stolen tonight, I'd probably replace it with about what you have.

Thank you sir, there are a lot of good products at a very valuable price. I even got my 1199 at 50 percent off when cabelas was making room with the new helix and onyx.

Hope the scumbag that stole your tackle gets spinal meningitis, his arse hole draws up around his nose, he gets the drizzling shets and lives to be a 1000 years old. Can't stand a thief especially one that steals a mans joy. sorry for your loss.

But if someone WERE to steal it, then the they would already know what's coming to him now. It's like a defensive curse or something.

Good point Shark. I'm going out to the garage to apply the 1000 year drizzling shets curse to my stuff now!

The H2O rods are awesome for the price. Best thing is they are easy to exchange if they break. Only happened two times but were exchanged wit no question. Best rods I've found for the price ( especially when they go on sale)

Sorry, guess I read the post too quick. Saw the word stolen and jumped to conclusions. That curse will work though, I've used it before when some dipshet stole my rods and reels out of my boat and again when they stole my pick'em up truck. Only thing that gives me any satisfaction. Ya'll take care and happy 4th.
