Daiwa T3 1016 Reels today...

I was curious, how are they holding up? Are folks still using theirs?

I had a T3 Ballistic for a very short period of time and feel like maybe I didn't give it a chance. For some reason I kinda want to get a 1016 or 1016 MX, but not sure it's worth it considering the reels that are available today.

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

I just used a Braillist yesterday and it handled a lot of baits really well. I mostly had luck using a chatterbait, but I think it would handle jigs and plastics in the range you mentioned, especially if you're not in heavy cover. At 7'5" it is an inch longer than what you specified, though. I still...

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

I'll second what Gary said about Megabass customer service. I've only had to deal with them once in that capacity and it was friendly and easy.

Re: Jig/T-rig Rod

Go for the Perfect Pitch, but if you can upgrade to the Destroyer line, the FMJ is the best jig and bottom contact rod I've ever used. Get one from Gary/bronzefly!

Re: Megabass levante

F52DDF73-ACCC-4262-93B2-79E0E0531F77.jpeg Really great looking and feeling sticks. In hand, they felt more relative to the XX rods than the previous gen. One difference, though, was the AKLYS felt lighter overall but not as balanced as the XX version. But it wasn’t bad for a 7’10” rod of that kinda...

Re: Megabass levante

Got my hands on a bunch of these today, and I’m quite impressed! Massive improvement over the first generation. Too bad my pitiful tax return didn’t come this past week, or of have bought at least one!

Re: Megabass levante

If the sticks show up at a dealer in Ohio by the end of the month I’ll definitely share my thoughts.

Re: OROCHI vs Orochi

I can only compare the Perfect Pitch models, but with limited time on the gen 2 version at that. The gen 2 PP has a slightly deeper flex and slightly less power than the gen 1 version. It seems more of a JDM power and taper than the original. That said, it’s going to be different for everybody wheth...

Re: Braillist Rod From Megabass

Will there be a retail area in the PA facility?? I do not believe so. What? I’m in Pittsburgh! Hopefully a local shop carries the full line if they won’t have a retail space. One Field & Stream nearby had some Levante rods long after they were released, and now they barely even carry MB lures. Wait...

Re: Megabass levante

I was wondering if they’d update the Levante line and actually make them worthwhile. I was skeptical, but now I’m kind of excited! Can’t wait to get a peek at their design.

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Got a gen 2 Perfect Pitch yesterday and though I haven’t had it on the water yet, it’s a different stick. I’m a bit surprised by how less powerful it feels, and how deeper the tip flexes compared to the original. I definitely understand the difference in lure ratings now. The usual quality and craft...
