A Magsealed, Aluminum, Digitally Controlled BFS capable reel that weighs in at 6.5oz.


Hopefully BFS makes it mainstream to the US shores.

Re: 2019 wishes

Well they kinda gave me what I wanted already - kinda. Always wanted a metal T3 without the pop up hood. Got the Steez SV TW. It's close enough in form and ergonomics, but no 3D braking. I'd like to see a Megabass Steez SV TW, a new Pixy with the spool from the SV Light Limited, and some Heartland ...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Would the Z1016 fans like it as an aluminum version of the T3 minus the hood? Of course have a 90mm handle and more solid all around.

Maybe the Zillion and Tatula HD is Daiwa's Bantam??? I hope not but, worth mentioning.

What's REALLY next for Daiwa

In an effort to keep threads on topic, i am starting a new thread for us to speculate about whats coming next for Daiwa or what we'd like to see. Id like to see an updated Alphas SV. Also, a small tough reel to compete with the Bantam would be cool. High gear ratios are always on my list as well. Im...

Re: What are You PUNCHING with?

GLX 954 +1 I am a big fan of this rod. The GLX 954 FPR is where it is at for me punching. Warhammer is solid as well, but traded it away after using the GLX. I have purchased the Steez AGS 8' H that I'll try this upcoming season, but will use more as a flipping and pitching rod then just punching, ...

Re: Daiwa Steez AGS

The little time I had with the 7'6 H, I felt like it was very much a bottom contact rod. Are the other rods in the line, specifically the 7'1 MH the same type of feeling, or do they play with swim jigs, chatterbaits (I know it's not ideal), but still some of those moving baits with single hooks? Wh...

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

Update for anyone still interested. I was raving about the KTF spool in the 16 Aldebaran BFS. I had the pleasure of getting an Avail 16ALD15 spool for the Aldebaran...it is a good step better than the KTF in terms of casting light lures with ease. The spool is a little more wild (prefers gentle cast...
