Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Does the Steez platform really need an update??? If anything I would rather have the new Hyper Mesh brass gears and a longer handle. Just not sure what they are aiming at sometimes... I'm starting to think the Z1016 is beyond a dream, unless there is a T-wing on it. I don't hate the TWS, just would...

Once they stopped making them I hit up every store around till I couldn’t order them anymore. Thise sounds sweet. Iove little craws ...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

I could give one of my fingers to get 2019 Pixy (or Presso) SV :lol: \:D/ which weights less than 140g! What about your casting thumb? I do wish that would happen. They could use the SV LTD spool (or a little deeper). No carbon handle or cork knobs to keep the MSRP down. The PX-R i think wasva turn...

Re: Jerkbait rod

I have a custom Otterod built by Mattman on a 5C72MHM legend extreme blank for jerkbaits including 1 oz baits that I use with 10lb braid & a mono leader. My other jerkbait rod is a kistler z bone LEXF 3 MH 7' 0" which I use with fluorocarbon for jerks including 1 oz baits. I like moderate ...

What about the MGL brakes?

Shimano doesn't have "MGL brakes" on any reel.


I guess I should clarify. The MGL spool that affects the current SVS Infinity brake system.

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

Ive only used the Gen1 Orochi XX Tour Versatile. I thought it was a little too stiff to be "versatile" if your are using FC, you may be able to swing it. I was using braid and thought it would handle spinnerbaits and chatterbaits along with small swimbait and frog duties. Jigs and frogs is...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

If that is the brake dial on the bottom there, I wonder how the Japanese hold their reels? If I were palming the reel the brake dial would be bound to get adjusted accidentally by my fingers, as happens with the CT Tats. A Steez style sideplate looks like a much better design to me. I was consideri...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

What's this blurry thing. It looks unlike any Daiwa on the market. They cleverly switch to a Tatula 100 in the next frames with the same background but that does not appear to be a Tatula 100. https://i.postimg.cc/FHjmJrXT/Screenshot-20181211-214051-2.png fallout frank horrigan https://i.postimg.cc...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

They show the guy holding a sideplate at 1:10. It is some kind of new model sideplate, the dial is all the way at the bottom of it and the sideplate frame is molded around it, it also has a squared of point on it. Looks nothing like anything in production now. They did announce a new Steez rod on t...

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Yeah, project T equals project TEASE. No point in watching when you think a new piece of tech is coming then they literally change the handle nut cap and call it JDM. Makes me wonder if it is even a tease or the whole 2019 video series will be like that. Come on Daiwa. The rod is intereting though....

I thought it was an old Tatula at 1st because the top of the frame is so flat but has the Steez logo on the face plate. Looks to be some new Steez reel. What's the time i...

Looks like a M or lighter rod too. Could be that lighter Steez. I havent had any problems with mine and I havent read problems with any others. Maybe they are willing to lighten it a tad further...it will be nuts
