Re: Was the Daiwa CG CC CR 80's a colossal failure to Daiwa?

Don't assume everyone using them will post on TT and other sites. Lots of HS kids, college anglers, budget minded type anglers are using them. I have heard very few complaints etc on them from dealers and customers. Could it be that there haven't been many complaints because they haven't sold many?...

Re: Megabass levante

Wonder is any of the JDM models will land stateside? https://www.megabass.co.jp/site/freshwater/levante/ I can tell you that there is a possibility more models will be added to the US lineup over time. Not sure if any will migrate from the JDM offerings but I will try to get an answer on that soon.

Re: Tour Versatile XX

I have a gen 1 model and I would compare it to my 844 GLX for action and power. Great to hear because I was looking at that rod as well. I’m thinking the GLX would be better due to the warranty But in terms of performance which do you prefer and for what technique do you perfer it? It's a good all ...

They were a big hit at a tackle show this past weekend. The target is still March but do not be surprised if you see them show up a bit sooner.

No. The grip is different than the previous generation as well. I will take a few pictures in a day or two when I am at my house.

The pricing has remained pretty well the same. Plus there are some new models added that were also added to XX lineup.

Been quite a while since I've fished the Steez and will defer to others to provide the comparison. I know the Teez models I have fished have been exceptional rods. Great performance and build.

More than anything they focused on the more popular models when they decided which models to have.
