Re: Zillion TW HD

Good that you found the info of value. Have had my eye on the Morethan, but just don't need another reel.
I have the previous version of the Morethan, great reel, the new one will have more spool option.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

The T3 1016 spool is a classic and the FX73SV spool is pretty great as well. Off topic, sorry, but: What do you use the T3 1016 spool for? I have used mine in my T3 a few times but found that it needed quite heavy and aerodynamic lures to perform well. Maybe - probably - I just have not used the sp...

Re: K2 Blank Sensitivity Compared To NRX, Conquest, Poison Adrena Level Rods

I much prefer my K2 736 custom with spiral wrapped torzites than my NRX 894 with recoils.

So.. being curious, i took the 50 Xplasma and spooled it on a Tatula CT-R, spooled up perfectly. Spooled the Catalina with 16 lb. Sunli...

Re: Opinions on best Dobyns rod for jigs

If you're staying with Dobyns, go with the Xtasy, I have the 755, works well with 3/4 and up. The tip seems a little slower, so I have to put some smoke on it for a solid hookset, but the fish stay pinned.

Re: Z bone frog rod

I use the 7-6 Hvy H3 for frogs. The Z-Bones will frog but I like them for bottom contact. The 7-6 mh Z-bone is kinda underpowered for frogs. If you're going to frog in the morning and worm later, and want 1 rod, then for sure the 7-3 hvy Z-Bone will fill the bill.

Re: Top Water rod for 1ozers

I've been throwing the I-Jack on the new Megabass Destroyer Wild Bunch Carbon Head, among other things. It handles 1 oz range top water baits very nicely. That Valkyrie 71H is an interesting option too... I know how much I enjoy the 71MH version in general. Off topic, are all the MB Valkyrie rods s...

Re: Need help locating Zillion TWS bumper

I have the old model Zillion TWS The part # for the 100XXS is 6J044505 it's key #63 plate
The part # for the 100HS and 100P are different, so that may be the color.
