Re: Metanium DC worth it over Curado DC

Well, if it is a workhorse reel I will also throw in the Antares DC (3/8-2oz) and the Antares DC MD (1/2-5oz).

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

I have the St Croix 7'4 Heavy. It is not a brromstick and has a fairly fast tip that should def allow you to walk a frog. I personally would not use it for that technique since the reel seat is not comfortable to me for that kind of downwards motion. I use a Steez XBD frog rod for that technique. I...

What cover ?

I like at least a mh or h for skipping docks and stuff. I use a 843 or 844 mostly.
Would be from sparse to some medium to heavier cover. Was planning to use braid to 15-17# Sunline Armilo leader for it on a Steez A with Steez SV TW spool.

Which rod would you choose for skipping?

HI there, my Megabass Spinnerbait Special broke and I am getting it replaced by Megabass. I used this rod for mainly target casting in short distances and also for skipping jigs and plastics. I am wondering against which latest Orochi Model I should exchange it for (Jerkbait, Tour Versatile) or if I...

Re: New Antares

50lb maxcuatro or 50lb fx2. These two are the only braid i use for 50lb+. Thanks for the reply! How would you think the reel is holding up to that kind of abuse? I am assuming you have upgraded to a longer handle? Can you compare the reel to any of the following models? Steez A, Steez SV TW, 2019 M...

Any thoughts on the reel now that they have had time on the water with it?
+1

Would be particularly interested in opinions comparing it to a Steez SV TW.

Thanks

Re: New Antares

No. That was 904C for flipping. Have you set the hook yet? I’m interested to see how that went? I caught a few, nothing bigger than 4lbs. Great reel, very smooth when flipping and pitching. Even bombed a few and it brake is very controlled and smooth. So much like my ZPI mag metaniums. What line ha...

Re: Steez racing Design 7011HRB

the monkey bit me today. Ordered the Steez AGS 7'9'' XH for 377 USD shipped. Could not pass on this..

Hopefully should do what I am looking for, the Racing Design at double the price was just too expensive for the little gain on performance.

Re: Steez racing Design 7011HRB

Any more review on this rod? What is the weight, any pics of balancing this rod with a Steez A, 2019 Morethan, Antares DC, etc? What USDM rod would it compare to? Would use it for 3/4 -1oz jigs and for punching. Is it worth the 800 USD? Many thanks! First off I haven't used or own any rods that fee...

Re: Dobyns xtasy or kistler zbone

What is your weight of the 7'6 heavy? The kistler website says 3.8 oz. That can't be right... How would you compare it to your NRX. This rod seems to fit the bill for me for 1oz jigs and punching. Combining super sensitivity with great balance and sturdy build quality. Care to comment? Thx! The rod...

Re: Steez XBD SVF Discontinued?

=D> Quick (a bit unrelated question) here since it is about the same rods. I am looking for a heavy Jig rod (3/4oz - 1.5 oz). I have used the XBD Frog rod for a while here, since I did not have anything else but was not super happy with the sensitivity of it. Now I am strongly considering the Steez ...
