Re: Anyone add weight to butt section for better balance?

I'm not to sensitive tip heavy rods, but I had 2 rods that really sucked. Try adding chair covers and washers in them, worked out pretty good, until I found a better solution. Sold them. :lol:

Cracker where did you get the charters, I went to the site but I'm not very good at finding stuff. Wanted to see how the Super Natural compares.

Re: Sunline Defier

Here is the difference between both Shooter lines. https://img.tacklewarehouse.com/watermark/rs.php?path=SDAR-2.jpg https://img.tacklewarehouse.com/watermark/rs.php?path=SLSD-2.jpg Thanks Cracker, I may just use the shooter only from now on. Was really surprised on the stretch on the Armilo.

Re: Sunline Defier

The Shooter is the best moving bait line I've used, specially top water. Use it for all my cranking except deep. I have Armilo on all my all purpose rods, for bottom contract. Cut my use of FC in half.

I’ll guess X7 re-vamp by popular demand.

I since have a couple I'd like to add.

Re: Swimjig reel?

Currently using an Steez EX 7.1 reel, because it's on an all purpose rod (MB Rekkai), but I prefer a 6.3 ration. You can't go wrong with any of the Steezs or TDZ reels, or a Zillion with I prefer the longer rods.

Re: The Most Coveted rods of the X7 line up are?

I have a Super Eiger, Super Elseil, Rekkai, Western Flip, and a Parry Arc. Love the X7's, Super Elseil and Rekkai are my favorites. Would love to acquire an Extreme Mission and Simoom.

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

It's been 12 years since ChuckE wrote his comments and we're still discussing how the mag brakes work. I just turned 70 and I've have a life experience to share, If it ain't broke don't fix it. I still love Daiwa!

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I like Daiwa, I'm not changing my mine because someone says they're old school. Glad he has some technical info to support his statements, but I like Daiwa. Like my Father's family arguments on Ford vs. Chevy, no one ever won, because they were both good cars.

Re: Comparing Original Steez to Metanium MGL, etc

thanks, yeah I've got 3 OG Steez - two are 6.3's, 1 is 7.1. I could drop a gear upgrade in the two 6.3's for $100 and be done - one each for the 893, 894, and 873 I've got coming. Plus I've got two Alphas SV's as well so I have a few options for 6oz reels. For all I know the J Dreams/SV105's may ba...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

I have a Presso casting rod and reel that I tried 12# SX1 and it casted just OK casting 1/16 oz.Rapala, so decided to try 8# test. So I bought some 8# Xplasma Asegai. This stuff is really small, sewing thread small, a little hard to tie knots. Looks like green silt on the reel. It really performs, i...

Re: What spool ?

I have an Alpha Type R spool in my Sol. Best 1/4 oz Pop R spool I've found. I got a SV spool for the Sol to try but liked the Type R spool better.
