Re: Steez A Spool Help

Either Zpi spool or the Steez SV TW spool would be solid choices.

Now you just need the SV103 drag star to complete the collection.

Re: Rods with the 'it' Factor

I have a few of the ones that I deleted to save space on the post. I've tried to get my hands on a Luxxe Oltre, but to no avail. :crying: Still looking... Tell me about the Steez Racing Design and the Grand Cobra. Have read a little bit about them but intrigued. :-k Can you give us a quick review? ...

The Elseil in the Phase 3 wasn't the pick of the litter when it comes to sensitivity, though a nice rod. The Bearing Down and Nautilus are clearly much more sensitive in my hands...
It wasn't bad. I really enjoyed the taper and versatility. That dang handle grip though.

Re: Rods with the 'it' Factor

I'm a little surprised at the amount of attention going towards the P3s. I had the Elseil. It was definitely a versatile stick, and the blank was above average - pretty crisp and sensitive, but it didn't wow me. I felt my K2s and Point Blanks felt more alive, and the PBs are incredibly versatile. I ...

Re: Rods with the 'it' Factor

MB X7 Super Eiger - Love the way it feels and the sensitivity is as good as it gets NRX 873 and 893 - sensitivity is top notch Otter rods custom built on a Phenix K2 blank - best built and most sensitive rod I own, but comes with a high price MB X4 Destruction - Not for the sensitivity, the action ...

Re: Power ratings on new NFC X-Ray blanks?

It's a guessing game with NFC until we get some solid measurements, as MDF just did above. And even with that, their blanks have more variations between same models than any I've come across.

Re: USDM Black Labels

It's just another case of Daiwa regurgitating products, rather than coming up with something new.

Re: USDM Black Labels

These are essentially the JDM Black Label SG. Roughly 60 - 70 dollars more than the JDM models, but you don't have to pay for shipping. Sounds like the blanks have been made with US like powers and tapers. Sucks they're not offering any of the JDM models, especially any of the sub 7 ft models.

Re: Rods with the 'it' Factor

Anything built on a Point Blank rod blank :lol:. BUT - I just took possession of an 18 Daiwa Heartland 6101 mrb last week. It factor in spades. Blank is even fatter than my PBs, plus it might even be lighter. Thin walls, beautiful taper, plenty of reserve power. Throw in the HVF nanoplus tech tech, ...
