Re: New Antares

I'm going to purchase this reel next month; my first shimano since the mg50. I don't mind a loaded bat...I feel I get better hook sets with a 7-8oz reel, and my already lightweight rods feel like they want to 'pop a wheelie' with a meatier reel. Speaking of the mg50; nobody griped about the fact it ...

Re: Poison Glorious XC 173MH-G

Thanks for the heads up. Ebay has 5 pages of glorious rods, so I'm not as limited on models as I first thought. I'll probably smoke on it...so u can make a 'clear headed' decision, lol.

Re: Post purple

Wow. My purple accented reels look 'missionary' compared to that rig. Well done.

Re: Steez RD 7011HRB and Luxxe Oltre B70H Rear Handle Lengths?

Just ordered a couple of those new limited zillion SV's from the asian fishing portal. I noticed they had the racing designs for a better price than most. They had the 6-3, 6-8, and 7' casting in stock. 701hrb was $747. Much better than digitaka's $885. Not sure about rod shipping there, but my reel...

Re: Rods/reels you regret not buying

When I was in college and getting into higher end gear around '01, I joined the forum and started visiting japan tackle. They had that custom td-z order page up with all those colors to choose from. $599 was almost laughable to me then. Things have changed. I'd like to have one in metallic pink. Hel...

Re: ICAST 2019

Has daiwa ever released/revamped a reel without someone on tackle tour knowing about it first? I dont believe so, and I've been around here since 2002. I'm thinking no zillion.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Well, at least your new spool will probably look great and be a quick sell if you decide not to keep it. I had the red rcs spool for my old purple alphas. I didn't notice any performance gain, but my eyes appreciated them.

Re: ICAST 2019

Surprised we havent heard anything on the zillion. Digitaka is sold out of 4 of the zillion models currently, but still no word.

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

It's the best I own for my medium power bottom contact rods I guess. I 'm really an aluminum frame guy. I like the smoothness and hooksetting power aluminum frames give me.

Re: New Tatula Elite Reel

Spool is '5 grams lighter', so that should put it at 13 grams.
