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.

Re: Kage ultralight

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...

If you would buy instead of build the 9ft Expride meets what you want.

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...

Re: Kage ultralight

I guess in true TT fashion the fact that there is a new high quality ultralight "spinning" rod is lost by the first post.

Re: Kage ultralight

I also would love to see more ultra light casting rods in the US market. That would mean some kind of warranty with a company here and not the expense of importing rods from Japan. I certainly have no problem with the JDM rods but I really like being able to handle a rod before buying.

Kage ultralight

Just because this is TT and we are always in search of new "stuff". I thought some maybe interested in the new Kage ultralight spinning rods that Daiwa is releasing in the states. I have been unable to find them on their site but they are in the new Daiwa print catalog. 5'6" to 7'1" and what I found...

Re: How many rods/reels do you actually use

I refuse to count what I have. I want plausible deniability. Honestly i have a bunch but I fish lakes, small rivers and creeks and for me each requires different equipment. So in short how many I use depends on what I am fishing. Anything from UL-SUL to a 9 foot XXH for swimbaits and A-rigs.

Re: Daiwa reels - gaudy or sexy?

Some of the combinations do not appeal to me. At the same time the SLX is not appealing and I am not at all sure about the Antares while the Tranx just looks cheap to my eyes. Of course we could all have "Ike" reels.

Re: Does anyone recognize this micro soft plastic?

Charlie Brewer Slider brand, makes a very close one in their minnow. 2 1/8" long. The cuts appear to be a little different.
