Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

The Designo Lebens are flat out some of the most sensitive rods I own or have ever fished. They are extremely clear and dragging tungsten on rocks is almost like the nails on a chalkboard in a good way, and no the RD's just aren't as sensitive, I also believe the RSR is more sensitive than any of t...

Re: Is Daiwa becoming : The Off Topic Turn...

I’m definitely one that enjoys fishing more than my gear, and I love to figure out and catch big fish. Joined TT for reviews and personal experiences using high end gear, since that’s what I Ike to use, and it’s been great for that overall. I don’t dress my reels up with colored parts and all that,...

Is Daiwa becoming a Tatula???

Yes we are all 12-13 year old boys at heart! Why else would we all be so disappointed that Daiwa doesn't make reels that look as cool or with as many colors as they used to? That's what's great about this forum is none of us care much for ration or reason! We just about all left that out the window ...

Re: Rod with power between Leben C71MH+RST2S TT & Leben C71H+TT / Jigga Stick

I have the DV6-C611HR AVANT and it fishes noticeably lighter than the 71h leben torque tune. I’ve only been out with it a 2-3 times, but I lucked into some good fish with it on one of those occasions. It’s somewhere between the RD hustlers and jigga stick for sure. Not as easy to place because of i...

Re: Rod with power between Leben C71MH+RST2S TT & Leben C71H+TT / Jigga Stick

The MH+ is rated to 1.5 oz, the H+ is rated to 4oz (if I am not mistaken) The 2020 DV7-CHRS4 is rated 3/8th-2oz. You can get it in a 7'1 or a 7'4. If you want to get fancy, you can dictate what kind of guides are on it, which will dictate the action (ala EG) I don't speak from personal experience o...

Re: Rod with power between Leben C71MH+RST2S TT & Leben C71H+TT / Jigga Stick

I don't want to go below 7ft. Would I be correct to understand the Technical Tune is the better all around rod but the Finesse tune is better if its only for bottom contact? The Leben C71MH+RST2STT is a pretty awesome all around rod for how I fish but a hair under powered for allot of my bottom cont...

Re: Is Daiwa becoming a Tatula???

The Steez SV TW with the right spool is an awesome reel just as good as the OG steez. And they have a couple newer reels that aren't run of the mill like the new Ryoga & Millionaire. But I agree the majority of their newer reels are rather bland in appearance compared to the older models. And how co...

Rod with power between Leben C71MH+RST2S TT & Leben C71H+TT / Jigga Stick

I have the Leben C71MH+RST2S TT and the Leben C71H+TT They are both absolutely fantastic rods! However while the MH is unbelievable for lighter texas rigs and lighter jigs it's got a little less power than id like for when texas rigging creature baits and most jigs. The C71H torque tune is also unbe...

Re: The Megabass P3 Bearing Down f5-611x is the best

It is kind of a love hate rod. I loved how it was so light, balanced, sensitive, and great for hooksets. But absolutely hated it for casting. With my worm / jig rods I do a mix of pitching and accurate soft roll casts. And the stiffer tip was awful for roll casting and if I am pitching I prefer some...

Re: Designo leben and vantage

I got the Leben Torque Tune DLT-C71H + R2 and the DL-C71MH + RST2S rods. Will have to post pictures later. Yes by far the most comfortable gripping rods ive ever held. And with a TDZ it feels like it was all perfectly fitted to my hands! They are understated as you said but the attention to detail i...

Re: What rod/reel combo has/will withstand the test of time?

Phase III Nautilus with Megabass IS 71 with purple PG spool is a combo ive always got on me and catch a ton of bass on. Also my 7' Medium Steez Flexlite with a TDZ Personal Order has been my primary cranking setup for about 7 years and have no plans to look for anything different.

Any recourse for DHL package not delivered?

I ordered a mint Qonquest 51 from Buyee Japan Auction and it was shipped DHL and tracking shows it was delivered but I never received the package. Is there any course of action I can take or am I just totally out of luck since its marked delivered even though I absolutely never received it?

Re: Help with Evergreen designations

Yes we do need an "Evergreen guide for dumies" thread! Especially since its harder to just find online like Megabass stuff. So Designo is produced certain lines of blanks for Evergreen kind of like Olympic does now? My Stingray says Designo so I guess that means Designo produced that particular blank.

Help with Evergreen designations

I need some help with Evergreen designations. I know the Heracles rods are the serious considered 2nd in quality behind the Kaleido Inspirare Series. But some Kaleido rods also say Designo, and I just god a Designo Leben that doesn't say Kaleido. So if possible please help me in clarifying the Everg...

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

Have a question about the DLT-C71H+R2S, how does this rod compare to the TKLC super stallion with similar specs? And would this make a good rod for 2 to 3 oz swimbaits as well? Not sure if its better with the lower end for jigs and worms or fishes better in the high end as it has a crazy wide rating...
