Re: 2019 Shimano reels -

Bantam dc sounds interesting. Wonder what the weight will be with a dc braking system that reels already a tank. I always wanted an aldebaran dc that can handle lighter baits. With all the bfs fishing that seems to be growing more popular it seems like it would be a good time for one.

Re: No one knows the Braillist??

I had one. After lack of reviews and the brailist name I had to try one. Sold it soon after testing. Don’t expect western flip sensitivity that’s for sure more like XXX. The brailist is faster action than the WF slightly better action for the light texas, but too soft for how and where I fish kinda ...

Re: Attn: Megabass Lure Guys

I’ve ordered megabass stuff from the hookup tackle before. They are legit just a heads up.

Re: Conquest Skeptic

Yeah; FL is wild. That Dec spawn can happen in a night, depending on the lake and year Pretty cool. Didn’t know it goes down like that out there. Wish that happened here. Love the 9:1 svtw on the 904 by the way. Need a 9:1 one for my arsenal. Love the conquests no skepticism here just pure enjoymen...

Re: I believe she is the "one"

It is a "great" fishing rod. I own over 35 Megabass rods fishing them exclusively for the past 12 years, and it took til last year for me to finally buy one. I was equally as impressed and happy to feel a different taper and power balance. I love my Megabass's rods especially my X7s, but t...

Yup mine says made in China.

Re: Steez A spool options?

Strange my experience with the Steez A with the ZPI pg spool was much different. I found it to be very controllable and like a sv spool for all size baits. I tried the steez svtw 1016sv and like it very much but the PG blows it away. I skip baits a lot and and the pg won't backlash on me on errant s...

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Add the extra worm gear bearing to it. They're the same size as the handle bearings. There was a noticeable difference in the retrieve to me. I just bought a gold ZPI PG spool to put in the ZSVTW, so I can throw the 1016SV spool in my SS SV. Overall one of the best daiwa TW reels. The shape or style...

Fishing the delta will make you a better angler everywhere else you fish and it’s my personal favorite place to fish. Thanks for helping out the future of the sport taking the young studs out.

Re: Daiwa Bearing Issues

Daiwa steez reels have a bearing on the spool and one in the side plate opposite the handle which is fairly easy to remove with a small screwdriver. For the spool bearing you need the tool. Bearings are pretty cheap about $40 for a pair of good ones. I personally like the ZPI bearings but there are ...

Re: Reels for Better Distance for Lighter Baits

Out of the 3 mentioned metanium mgl hands down. Then chronarch than curado. Metanium and chronarch mgl spools start up easier and are lighter and cast very good.

Re: Steez A Question

Thanks for all the replies, only bad review I found was a guy from BR (not a member there, read it from google) and he said the stabilizing pin just fell off his Steez A. Sold it for a Metanium MGL saying it felt "much smoother on retrieve" which was odd to me. I just have a deep fear of ...

I've not heard, seen, or read of trouble with Alconite of yet. I mean, how much hardness is enough?

No that is false. Megabass x7s are Fuji kr concept titanium guides.
