Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

Received Steez air today....as previously noted drag star does not click and no audiable drag sound. Spool weight 8.1grams with bearing.

Re: 2019 Daiwa Admira Baitcaster

Just change sideplate and spool and you have pink 1016 Steez with 8,8:1 ratio. =D> More wondering, is this Admira same like Steez CT spool + sideplate...

Re: Japan Fishing Show 2020 Predictions

For realz. The Tatula is Daiwa's pollution. Wish they made something like the Bantam. Quality solid little reel that is also made in japan, and not too expensive. Their insane focus on Tats is annoying. Never had a Tat. Will never have a Tat unless there's one that is below 6,5oz and made in japan,...

Re: G Loomis GLX vs Rainshadow ETERNITY / TESTAMENT

I'm looking to get or build a 7'6" medium action casting rod. I've been impressed with the Rainshadow IMMORTAL blanks but have no experience with their top of the line Eternity or Testament blanks. (I think RS replaced their Eternity line with the Testament line). Anyone in the know care to weigh i...
