Re: Steez AGS casting rods

For now I own 7’1” MH 7’2”MH 7’4”XH 7’6”H For bottom contact, 7’4 is my favorite. The 7’2 is an phenomenal single hook moving bait rod. It is the best rod in the line up imo. Looking to get another bottom contact but can’t decide if I want another 7’1mh or 7’4xh. Perhaps the 7’1h. Do you think the ...

Re: Steez AGS casting rods

Pretty much my weightless combo with light t-rigs up to only 1/4oz. I dont go any heavier. I'm sure it will handle up to 3/8 fine. The rod is a bit softer compared to your regular ex fast we have for the nrx or croix rods. Edit: also using 12lbs shooter and will normally max out on the rod line rat...

Re: Steez AGS casting rods

I'm also pretty interested in this thread. Anyone with the steez ags baitcast rods, please share your input?? I have the STZ761MMLFS AGS for 2 years to drop dropshot 1/2 - 3/4oz, and honestly really impressed how sensitive it is (over previous extreme hp). In general, i prefer medium fast/jdm taper ...

Re: Mail Call

Finally got this handle installed...all I can say is Bigly (or Big League).. rsz_1bigly.jpg The nice thing about that handle is that the Battler/Poker combo now balances on the lockdown nut, it was very tip forward even with that reel at 8oz with line. Feels much better in hand now. On to the other...

Re: Steez xt frog rod?

Re: Ordering from Japan... Metanium MGL???

I would personally go with JapanLureShop. I ordered a Met Mgl on Mon June4 and it arrived Fri June8 in the morning, Japan to Canada. On top of the quick delivery, they included a FREE Megabass Vision 110 jerkbait as a gift \:D/ Note that the Met Mgl is overbraked vs the 13 Metanium in my opinion, b...

Fish twice a week from may to nov, np. My daiwa pixy, alpha sv, ss sv paint finishes don't hold up close to as well as the ...

Re: Bantam MGL Who has their hands on one?

Has anyone here who owns the Bantam MGL casted any lighter plastics or crankbaits using 10 to 16 LB flurocarbon line?? Or can someone try a few ...

Re: First look at new Megabass Orochi XX rods

Bronzefly, much thanks for your input on Emtf. In my area, I don't get a chance to handle the rods before buying.... I'm glad they didn't change the EMTF into a strictly treble bait rod. When you fish it, do share.
