Re: Alphas 2019 vs 2017 model

Well I went with the sv105 instead, I couldn't justify the extra hundred dollars for the ct70 when I doubt I will be throwing anything as light as 4g. I have the Steez CT and I am throwing it on a NRX852C (rated 1/8-3/8oz), line is 7 pound Sunline. I can easily throw a 3g lure 40 - 50 feet with tha...

Re: Alphas 2019 vs 2017 model

On this German website a guy did compare the two:

In a nutshell: the CT was better for lighter lures.

Re: How would you pair this up?

I would go with the Zillion/SV103 on the SVD with the 16 floro. The Sv103 spool is deep and is a good caster in the Zillion. The Morethan would go on the swingfire, the stock morethan spool should hold plenty of 8lb. Just my .02 All in all some badass combos you have there! Thanks for your feedback...

How would you pair this up?

Hi all, I am a bit one of these first world dilemmas. I hav a bunch of Daiwa reels and spools and I am playing around with some ideas on how to best match them up for the techniques that I am planning to use them for. Would love to get your thoughts: Reels: * 2019 Morethan (8.6) * Steez SV TW (7.1) ...

Anyone think Daiwa will introduce a 7.1 ratio into the Steez CT line?
I dont think this will happen.

To me, my 8.1:1 feels a lot under retrieve live my 7.1:1 Steez SV TWS. Given the smaller spool, that makes sense. I actually wised the 8.1:1 was even faster.

But that might just be me...

Re: Which braid for heavy jig set up?

Yeah. I have to play around with the diameters. I think if I have a long enough leader it should be enough for a shock absorber.

Also played with getting a Steez a spool, which holds a bit more line.

Rod? Type & weight of jig? Cover?

My rod is the Steez Frog rod. Football head 3/4 - 1.5 oz. Would also throw a paddletail swimbait every now and then. Cover from pretty open to medium cover.

Which braid for heavy jig set up?

Hi all, I am playing around with a different braid ideas for my heavy Jig combo, where I have been running pure 16# Sunline Sniper so far. In order to get a bit more line capacity on the reel (new Morethan) I am looking into different braid options. I am still planning to run a 16/18 # fluro leader....

Re: What line for NRX 852c?

I made some changes.

I am running a Steez CT SV TW on the NRX with green 7pound Sunline Sniper. So far so good. Obviously not a combo for anything cover, but I can throw a 1/8oz jig almost 100 feet.

Might switch to braid backing at some point, but so far pure FC works for me.

Re: Daiwa 2019 Morethan TW

+1 from above.

Only issue that I have with mine 8.6 is that the paint already chips (andI have not scratched the reel).

Daiwa Steez SVF AGS vs Daiwa Steez SVF-XBD Frog Rod

Hi all, I am currently using the Daiwa Steez SVF-XBD Frog Rod purely as my heavy jig rod (1-1.5oz). The rod is relatively leight, powerful and has some decent sensitivity. Since my current frog rod (Okuma Scott Martin TCS Casting Rod 7'3" Heavy) feels a bit overpowered in anything but open water fro...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Having said that, just now found the High gear Left hand model in stock at JapanTackle. Was 530 USD (70 USD more than on Digitaka), but oh well. Was already expensive in the first place... ;)

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Just talked to my contact at JapanLureshop. He told me that the high gear left hand models will be out of stock till June, maybe even July since Daiwa seems to have some issues with production.

That just sucks...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Looks like even my German countrymen are excited about this reel! And that has to say something when a super critical German gets that excited! ;)
