Handle bushing and what's the bet one in the spool is a bushing over the exist.
They really put a bushing in the handle on a premium reel? Were they trying to make it saltwater capable like the Steez A?

Re: Longer ML spinning rod

Hi everyone I'm looking for suggestions on truly ml spinning rod. Currently I'm using Conquest 902 for my finesse fishing. It's nice for 1/8 shaky head + worm, jigs etc, but can't go lower with good distance. Looking for rod more than 7'. Is 7'6" Steez ags m/ml good for lighter applications? Other ...

Re: Rod Balance

Rod balance is always a major subject when new rods come out or when deciding to purchase a new rod. The reason I bring this up is because I'm curious, do you prefer a rod to be a bit tip heavy or would you rather weigh down the whole package to get a rod perfectly balanced? Its hard to balance rod...

Re: St Croix Legend & Avid

has anyone fished either of the Legend Tournament 8'6" models and can render an opinion? I have the 8'6 ML. It feels like they extended the butt section of the blank a foot to make it that length. Due to the length, it can really toss hair jigs. It's not the most sensitive rod in the world, but I d...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

I got mine in the mail today and it feels like it was made for the Destroyer 110 Special. I just hope the line pick up is fast enough.

Re: 2019 Casting Lineup

I enjoy the side by side of the Morethan and IP68. The TD Zillion platform looks considerably wider than the Steez TW platform except near the front of the reel where the Steez TW is wider. The Tatula 100 appears to be surprisingly similar in size to the Steez TW. Good to know. I have a new Alpha C...

Are the spool bearings 3x10x4 and 3x8x4?

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

I had a coupon from Digitaka that was set to expire, so I ended up ordering one of these (actually wanted the Steez CT in high speed but they never had any in stock). I never had an Alpha variant. It sounds like they’re good casters with the 70 spool.

Re: OG Zillion Gear Swap

It's a little different in that it (the 8.0 gear set) uses a non-standard drag stack... well not non-standard, but different than the typical Daiwa no 1 drag type setup, it's a pixy style setup. But the process is the the same, just follow the instuctions in the kit when putting together the drag s...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

To me it all comes down to certain models in each lineup. Some models are turds and some are gold. I had a St Croix Legend Xtreme 6'10 MXF. The blank was way too fast and I hated it. I have a 7' MHF Legend Elite and love the rod. I look through the threads on here and see which ones everyone loves, ...

OG Zillion Gear Swap

I have a Megabass IP68 that I would like to swap the gears with the 8.0 that TT has on their website. How difficult is this to do on my own? Is there a tutorial online that is available?
