Re: $300 spinning rod for bottom contact techniques

I love my Addermine, it’s a sweet stick, but I think based on my time with it that it’s got more power then a traditional Dropshot rod. So far it’s great for heavier drop shots using senkos, shakeyheads, and weightless senkos. But I think my St Croix M/F sticks still have more backbone. I also have ...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Should be interesting to see the finished product. Increasing sensitivity and balance of these already awesome sticks at that price point would quite the feat.

Wow, good to know didn’t realize it was that small. Must be a lot smaller then a Zillion SV TW then. Thanks!

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

Interesting comments. The Steez SV103 is the same form factor as the previous Steez. Out of the reels mentioned in this thread, I would place the Steez SV103 at number 2 on my palmability list. 1) Steez SV TW, complete cradle like comfort 2) Steez, perhaps a bit wider than the SV103 (Zillion OG), b...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

Thanks again to everyone for taking the time to read and respond, and patience with this Daiwa newbie. I think I’m going to skip the Steez sV for now based on what I’ve heard so far about the ergonomics, and images I’ve been able to find and compare of it mounted on rods compared to reels I know. Wi...

Re: Steel SV TW vs Aldebaran 50 HG for a MBR783c?

The Steez SV TW is leaps and bounds a better reel than the Aldebaran in my opinion. It's easily $200 better, and the Aldebaran is a very nice reel overall, but the palming, performance, rigidity in hand, smoothness, really everything is noticeably more refined and precise with the Steez SV TW in my...

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Agree with most that the Fuji ECS seat is just simpl, tried and true, ergonomic and gets the job done. I always know if it’s got an ECS it’s good to go. Based on experience with my FMJ I could see how the trigger on that seat could cause some discomfort. I don’t have a problem with it, but the lengt...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

In terms of comfort and handling can anyone who has time with them provide some feedback comparing how low in the reel seat the Steez SV103 sits compared to the Zillion SV or Tatula Sv or even a Chronarch MGL? From what I can tell in photos the Steez appears to sit up just a bit higher and has a mo...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

I think the smart move for you, if you can do it, is to find a local tackle store that has the reels in stock, and then make a trip there to handle them yourself, so you'll really know what fits you best. I would prefer to do that if I could for sure, but I don't think any brick and mortar retailer...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

Thanks guys all the feedback and input. Definitely learning more then I have searching. Seems like I’ve got some tough choices to make, but that maybe there’s also not a bad choice among them.

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

You can get a Steez SV TW A BNIB on the bay for same price TW is selling the steez SV. I sold a steez SV to fund another Steez SV TW A. I just flat out love those reels. You can also get a Steez SV103 on ebay for much cheaper than listed retail prices. But yeah, I'd much rather have the SV TW. Best...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

Thanks, appreciate the additional feedback and info on the reel. Sounds like it I may need to give it a bit more thought. It looks like a comfortable reel.

Any worries about it as a jig and trig reel in cover? I assume it’s not just for light finesse.

Thanks

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

I have used both, own 2 Zillion SV TW's and one Chronarch MGL. A good friend that tournament fishes a ton has both a 6.3 and 8.1 Steez SV. For me they just feel like supped up SS/SV's (which I also own and like, now that it has a Zillion SV TW spool). But yeah, for the price I would just get anothe...
