Re: Phenix Feather

You really can't go wrong with a Phenix..... At all price points. Maxim to K2, they just pump out great blanks.

Re: Daiwa Steez 103HL options?

If you can give me an idea as to what you want to do with the reel, I can give you a recommendation as to which spool will work best for you. I've plugged and played many spools into that reel. Is there something you want it to do that isn't working for you now?

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

Don't feed the troll! To give my input on the original question posted, I just ordered and received a JDM Steez TW1012SVXH. The reasons I went with the JDM version is: 1. I wanted the higher gear ratio not offered in USDM 2. I wanted purple highlights to match a custom I've having built 3. I will b...

I think you're just trying to ruffle feathers. I'm sure others do as well, which is likely why they stopped posting on this thread.

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

So you are comparing a made in china audio technica headphone to a made in japan audio technica headphone.What's the relevance to us debating both made in japan rods like the Levante and the hyuga?Bad analogy.Both these rods are almost identical.Only aesthetics are different.But they are both made ...

I only use custom rods and I'm failing to see how this is relevant.

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

Most jdm rods use SiC inserts lol most rods use whatever inserts cost the lease for the price of the rod. This statement clearly shows that you have no idea what you're talking about when it comes to fishing gear. Yes, more often than not JDM rods come with SIC guides at minimum. So without this ex...

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

If something is watered down and uses even somewhat inferior components, does that not make it of lesser quality? There's facts, and then there is subjective opinions. Bare in mind we're only speaking of minimal difference in MOST cases, but it's certainly there, whether someone chooses to believe i...

Re: A rod like my Cumara..

The 2nd generation Adrenas are just around the corner. They also have a full monocoque handle. I have the 1st generation 6'10 medium and MH. Extremely light and balanced rods. If you liked the Cumara for those reasons, you will enjoy the Adrena. Plus they're a more universal rod imo.

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

In my experience, most everything made in Japan that I've encountered has better build quality than from most everything else. And that's certainly not limited to fishing gear. It's the Japanese culture of quality control and materials. They take it to another level of precision rarely seen elsewher...
