I just got a 32" M Widowmaker. I bought myself a couple more Rose Creek boxes, and just ordered a Rapala jig box.

Those Rose Creek boxes look pretty awesome, especially the spoon box. I was talking with the manager at Scheels about getting some in stock and he was gonna look into it. Would be nice to not have to pay the shipping but either way I'll be getting a couple this year.
Da Pack!

Just paid for a couple of the 12v lithium batteries from the group buy on here.  Looking forward to putting them to use.
Late last year I got a hardly use 949i eskimo shelter love that damn thing.  So much space and sets up real easy.
Going to buy the new Helix 7 G2 most likely just waiting on some more reviews to come out.

You will have to let me know what you think of it if you take it out and play with it before we get ice.

I just got it in the mail yesterday so I haven't had a chance to compare it side by side with my quick tip yet but I would say it's lighter than the precision and maybe a little heavier than the quick tip but a slower action.

Thanks for the insight on the Fusion...I have one on order that should be here any day now (32" split grip).

Let's see, besides that, what else recently?
* Dakota 10ah lithium battery (no surprise)
* Garmin echomap 53dv for my UTV this winter ($299 at Cabelas right now)
* New 6 gallon bucket (whoo hoo)
* Steal of a deal on a Recon 5+ off craigslist

That's all in the past 2 weeks.  And now that I've listed it out, I see I should probably stop for a bit.   :roflmao:

I just put reels on all my rods and now that I had the fusion side by side with the quick tip I think the quick tip is actually a bit heavier than the fusion.  The quick tip is definitely thicker at the base of the rod.  The fusion is quite a bit slower action though.

Howdy all, so i have a 30 in. TUCR Bullwhip on order and im starting to regret not getting it in a 32 in. length. What would be the difference between the two lengths? Besides the two inches of course. Fish mostly hole hopping.

Hoping to get some deals on sleeves and adapter at the St. Paul Ice Show.  Thanks for heads up.

You will love them. Gas station managers will not! Just make sure you take them off before you walk on things that aren’t ice or pavement.

I really enjoy my Kahtoola’s. I could run full speed on the ice if I wasn’t so out of shape.   :roflmao: :roflmao:
