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: Daiwa LT spinning reels

I just received my Ballistic LT and it make some slight grinding noise when reeling. Is this expected?

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! ;)

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

So, you both having both reels, which reel would you recommend me? :mrgreen: I think the alphas is better bang for the buck but by fishing the steez you can see why its the flagship reel. It is a work of art and you will pay to have all the goodies.. In tt fashion i say get both as Tim so eloquenty...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Weight, mainly. The Steez is stupid-light and smooth, but that Alphas is no slouch. I do like the clicking drag in the Steez-it makes me wish every reel I own had this feature. But performance wise, you would rate them equal in terms of casting? Can I ask what you are using the reels for? What line...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

That would definitely be a worthy replacement. U should have no problem skipping with the Alphas. Heck, my OG Alphas Type F skipped pretty well with the stock spool. But with the SV spool thats in it now, its a skipping beast! Thanks again! Now I just need to make up my mind if 200 usd more are wor...

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Mine is on a 6-5 UL Corzza. With 8# braid, I can cast a 1/16 crappie jig 45-50 ft. 1/8 will be no problem with the right rod. How does the reel perform for 1/8oz lures? I am wondering if the reel would make sense on my 852NRX and 8-10 pound line. Thanks. !/8 is pretty dam light but I think on the r...

So now what do you think TW or CT TW??? Which of the generations is in the lead??? If I start my collection I think the A/SV TW will be my starting point, followed by the CT if I start to see more reviews concerning it...
I second that question! :)
