Re: Best All Around Reel: Chron. MGL / Cur. v Tat sv / Zil sv

I dont have a Tatula (but have Zillion HD, Daiwa Coastal and Steez SV TW) but have the Chronarch in the 8 gear ratio. I think it is a solid reel. It has a pretty wide spectrum of lures that can be thrown on it. I would say that it is a great all around reel! Get the 7 gear ratio and you should be se...

Re: 7.1 or 7.3 ft rod for hollow bodied frogs

I honestly do not think that it makes that much of a difference. On the pros and on the cons.

I use a 7'3'' and I think it is great.

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 ...

Re: Steez A vs Steez SV103 8.1:1 ?

Thanks for the feedback guys! Since I will be using the reel also in brackish water (California Delta) I am wondering if the SV103 has a disadvantage here. If I went with the Steez A I would prob customize it and get it with the 1016 SV spool, and a different handle and knobs from Plat, which would ...

Both have been fine so far..
Did I make that easier? :lol:



Thank you, but no! ;)

Which one would you say is smoother and holds up better over time?

Steez A vs Steez SV103 8.1:1 ?

Hi all,

looking to get a new reel for heavy Jigs. 

I have narrowed it down to the two.

The Steez SV103 seems to have brass gears vs the duralium of the Steez A. I prefer the spool of the SV for skipping. 

What would you choose?

Re: STEEZ XBD FROG ROD : Your feedback?

My frog rod broke today and I am also in desperate need for heavy Jig rod, that I could also use for some pitching activities.

Anyone to care their opinion on this? I like the tip of the rod to be fast to extra fast in order to have accurate pitches and also walk a frog.

Thanks!

Re: Steez XT

Anyone any experience on the Steez XT (particular 7'4'' Heavy)? Considering the rod as a heavy jig rod. How is the sensitivity?

Thanks!

Re: Do I need to change reels or line?

Have a look at a Zillion HD or a Coastal TWS (you can get them relatively cheap on ebay right now). I can recommend both reels for frogging!

I have a Bantam 151XG in the mail right now! and I will be comparing it to my Met. MGL XG and Steez SV XSL. I have caught a lot of Silvers, Chums and Pinks on the Met. MGL and its about as close to perfect as I can imagine with 8-10lb line. I'm hoping the Bantam will be as good or better. Salmon ar...

Once you changed the Steez A's spool, is there any difference between the two reels, besides weight?

Which is?
