Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

The 8.6:1 can be had for as little as $365. Do Steez TW SV go for this low too? To me the Morethan is a Betterthan Steez with aluminum frame a bronze main gear. How can they go fo so cheap? Can anyone tell me where I can find the 8.6 in right hand for this low of a price? Seems like everyone on thi...

Re: NRX 894C/Antares 70 balance?

The 894c is a bit tip heavy. Especially if one keeps telling himself that it is. ;-)

If you use a reel that is above 7.5 oz than it is much better. I use a 2019 Morethan and it helped. To have the rod balance perfectly I added a little weight on the butt of the rod.

Re: P5 super destroyer

I think I found the right reel to pair this with. Gonna take it out on Monday to fish. sd1.jpg High-res: https://www.dropbox.com/s/uli9iyrri2n811p/sd1.png?dl=0 sd2.jpg High-res: https://www.dropbox.com/s/2e21q9u92vhrv8x/sd2.png?dl=0 sd3.jpg High-res: https://www.dropbox.com/s/v2wjdzyodxeh8i2/sd3.pn...

Then the 746c should work for you.

Re: Expride 7'3" XH vs. Dobyns 746 HP

The Dobyns Extreme 746c is a fairly versatile rod and probably among the most sensitive in the Dobyns Extreme line up. To me it was as sensitive as my Xtasy755c. The 746c has enough backbone for 1.5 oz lures but can also throw 3/8 oz lures. It is also very well balanced. The Dobyns warranty is also...

Could you share where you got the Steez for more than 25% off? I've been looking at this rod since initial reviews from members on this board and it has really peaked my interest.
Send me a PM with your email. Will put you in contact.

Re: What to replace the Dobyns Xtrasy 755c with?

Got the 894c and the Steez Bottom Contact. Fished them for two outings. Here are some quick thoughts: Looks: Steez looks better and has much better craftsmanship. It's a bit sad that a US made high end rod sits so far behind a Chinese made one. Well, what is truly high quality that is made in thick ...

How do you balance your NRX (894c) rod?

Hi all,

purchased a NRX 894c and while I like the rod for the most part, the balance is a bit off and I am wondering how I can address this in the most visually pleasing, non destructive way.

Thanks all!

Re: Sensitive jig rod

I have 2 of these rods. My rod lineup consists of all Steez, NRX, Conquest and then 2 of that specific model if that tells you anything. It is an AWESOME rod. I use it for a variety of things, I've went from 3/4 oz jigs to 1/8 oz shakey heads and everything in between. I know that's a crazy range, ...

Re: Sensitive jig rod

Has anyone used or have the tatula elite TAEL701MMHXB-AGS? Is it anything like the steez (but 5" shorter) as far as taper/power? Its one of the rods I was considering selling to fund a higher end rod. I have 2 of these rods. My rod lineup consists of all Steez, NRX, Conquest and then 2 of that spec...

Re: What to replace the Dobyns Xtrasy 755c with?

Thanks all,

really deciding now between the 894c and the Steez Bottom Contact.

For 1/2oz + trailer, which is the more sensitive rod? I would pair the rod with either a Steez A or the new Morethan.

Thanks all!

Re: What to replace the Dobyns Xtrasy 755c with?

Hi all, I have been rotating the 755c into my arsenal over the last couple of months and used it to throw 1/2-1oz jigs. Overall the rod is well balanced and looks nice. Performance in my books is not where it should be though for a 500+ USD rod. While I can somewhat accept that the rod is fairly un...
