Rod and Reel Arsenal - 2018

by: Scott Brands 10/9/2018
Was thinking that just for fun I would post the majority of my rod and reel arsenal for y'all to take a look at. Maybe it can help anyone looking for a technique specific set up in the near future. I don't have an affiliation with any of these companies so I have a hodge podge of brands. I like all of these set ups (some more than others) and you can feel free to ask me for my opinion on any of these set ups for honest feedback if you like. I do have some changes in the lineup planned that will take place once Black Friday sales hit but this is what I've got right now.

Rod: Duckett Triad 70 Medium Power Moderate Fast Action

There you have it! Like I said this is the majority of my arsenal and I'm primarily a bass angler as you've probably guessed by now. I have a couple other setups that I purchased when I was first starting out that are now "guest rods". I also have a couple trolling set ups that I rarely use. Let me know if you have any questions about the lineup!
