Rod repair

So I build a few rods every year but I repair a "lot" of rods every year. My present problem is that I took in a Major Craft UL to repair a guide. Before I start, my question is, if anyone has repaired a solid tip rod where the guide that needs to be replace is located at the junction of the two mat...

Re: Daiwa Kage

To answer a few of the questions. The Kage rods are around $200. I have been using one of the Frog rods for the past year and i am completely satisfied with it. Not a technique that demands top sensitivity but the rod seem well above average in that department. I have also handled, not fished, some ...

Re: Stradic FL

While I admire the precision of really good reels, both spinning and b/c, there is a point at which the improvements are hard to discern. The Exist is a wonderful reel and I really enjoy mine. I also have an older Certate that continues to preform well along with several Stadics of older vintage. Wi...

Re: shipping rods

I have, over the course of years, received some broken rods and while it is true that some sellers pack better than others, I don't necessarily think it is always the fault of the seller. I have received rods in what I thought were sturdy tubes crushed and others that were in triangular boxes make i...

Kage ultralight

For anyone interested the Kage ULs are now on the Daiwa site. I have seen and handled several of them and they are very appealing. They are not built to be the lightest, the ones I have handled all had heavier guides than an ultralight needed but they feel great and have a nice handle.

Has any one heard if they are being discontinued or up dated. I notice Tackle Warehouse is discounting them.

Re: Andy Montgomery/Daiwa

I really think it is just about money, not product. For the right money I would certainly change brands, of underwear or almost anything else.

Re: Kage ultralight

Ranger 619VS we did not order any of the reels. I kinda felt they were dressed up Tatulas like you said. This doesn't mean that your shop will not have them or that if a customer came into our store and asked I would not order one for them. I do think the rods are cool and don't know of any other so...

Re: Kage ultralight

For Ranger and anyone else with an interest. We received our first Kage ULs today. Every bit as cool as I thought they were in August.

Re: Shimano Senilite Rod

I handled them back in August and liked them enough to order some. Have not received them yet, I'm not sure if any have shipped yet.

Ranger, I am unable to post pictures on here but if you want to PM me your email or cell number I can send them to you. I tried to PM you but the messages are hung up in my outbox. I really doubt that all this is worth the effort but I am not sure when the newest Daiwa catalog will be available. Lik...

Re: NRX 901 SJR Special Run

I can not add much as to the what the handles or guides will be. When we ordered our rods the first part of August we were not given a delivery date. We were just told it would be a limited run. My best "guess" is that they were waiting to see how many orders they got and then gear up for X many rod...
