Re: Most forgiving baitcaster

My Daiwa Steez A and the SV spool from the Daiwa SV103.

No idea why, but I can put the breaks on '2' and cast into the wind with a 1/4oz lure and i am not getting a hint of a backlash. Spool tension is normal.

Re: Tatula Elite vs Steez A

I am super impressed with my Daiwa Coastal SV TW as well so far! Smootheness is def on the same level as my Steez A and Steez SV TW. Of course the later are already a couple of years old. So one would need to see how the new Tatula's behave over time. Looking forward to get my other Tatulas now and ...

Re: Tatula Elite vs '20 tatula sv

ALF got me as well. Elite feels super solid. SV TW less so; if I keep it, it's getting knobs and a drag star stat. Dang, maybe I should have bought two elites. I figured the sv would be easier or more forgiving for my son though. Yeah, now I am wondering as well. I heard that the Elite was the high...

Re: Tatula Elite vs '20 tatula sv

WHo would you recommend to buy the Elite, who to buy the 20 Tatula SV? Thanks guys. I just bought one of each. (American legacy had a 20% off daiwa sale) Won't be able to fish until they open the lakes in my area though. There was a poll on the daiwa buy sell trade page on Facebook and last I looke...

Re: daiwa morethan 19

I have one spooled with 16# FC and the other with 20#. The Steez A sools hold enough line to bomb cast 16 # and enough to make far enough casts with 20#.

Re: daiwa morethan 19

I have 2 19' Morethans. In both I am running the spools from the Steez A.

The standard spool is ok if one puts braid (up to 40 #) or does not need a lot of line (i.e. if this is used for pitching g etc).

Re: Which Roler bearing pack do I need for my Steez A / Morethan PE 1000XHL-TW

Here are the sizes (in mm) for all the other ...

100 size has plenty of line capacity for 16#.

As for the weight the 100 and 200 only weigh 0.7 oz different. You’d only notice a significant difference in the palming size.
Thanks for the feedback.

Might have a hard look at the 101 HG. ;)

Re: Conquest DC

Anybody pulled the trigger yet?

I am interested in the 101 HG and wondering what people would use it for?

Was planning to use one as a Chatterbait reel (16# Fluro) but might not have enough line capacity for that..

The 201HG is a bit too heavy for my liking.

Re: Reel Recommendation for Steez XBD Frog Rod

I am using a Antares DC MD with the Steez XBD, but the new Morethan also works and looks beautifully.
