Re: STEEZ A/DAIWA MORETHAN DIFFERENCE

No; I'm guessing it's because there's already a thread pointed out above that has addressed this very question in detail.

Re: High end Jdm cranking rod help

So... I had to do it. I ended up going with the Sedition White Falcon 7 SDC-700MG-FTW. I don't know anyone who has one, and don't mind being the guinea pig for something that might be awesome. Thanks to all of the TT members who gave suggestions, and helped me make a decision on at least one new cr...

Re: High end Jdm cranking rod help

1/4 oz to 1 oz all on the same rod is a fairly tall order. The Valkyrie 71MH is rated 3/8 to 1 oz and can legitimately throw a 1 oz crank bait. I'm not sure how well it would handle a true 1/4 oz crank though, I haven't tried anything that light on it. The Tomahawk F4-71T would do better on the lig...

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

How much was it being sold for? I assume even with bottom-barrel components and a cheap way to print the factory sticker, a knockoff would still have a good bit of money/time invested in it, so I wonder how profitable it would really be? ^This. This is a wildly dumb scam. Building a single knock of...

Re: Show off your stuff

Evergreen Stallion RS Limited arrived a day early. Spectacular look and feel. Thought it would be more Mike Tyson and less Hector Macho Camacho, but it has it's share of flair. Also, hoped that the TI/TOR semi micro's would be big enough for Braid to Leader, but it's pushing it even with a 2.5PE/12...

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

All the logos look different from mine; appear similar though. Wrapping seems to be slightly different color. The rod blank tape is quite different on mine. The cqt blank looks like it does on the glorious and ultima poison rods. So, this is off. What does the butt end look and is the handle og loom...

Re: 17 Shimano Z-Pride

Can’t help at all with your question, but you’re likely going to cherish that rod. I got the grand cobra from that series last year. It’s my first eg rod and it’s exceeded expectations. Stallion in black has been on wish list, but will likely have to wait because the cue curiously remains long...

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

i picked up the drt remix 73 and 85, the gan craft superbrain, legit travel swimbait rod so far. Those are some deep JDM pickups. Nice sourcing. I figured the drt x tulala rods were beyond reach short of traveling to Japan. I was thinking the same thing...very nice pickups Derek At first when I saw...

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

I got an email an hour later from the Quality Control Manager that they would pay for the shipping to their factory and he would personally inspect the rod. =D> Great to hear! Well;...

Re: G Loomis Build Quality

To me it looks like an acid wrap on bad acid. I have never even considered sending back a wrong order incorrectly cooked food at a restaurant; just not that type of person. But, this is poor. Would definitely stop me from buying. They should be ashamed sending something like that out the door. I’ve ...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Would anyone be interested in a spool from a Morethan PE TW??? Seems like that part would be the only thing keeping me from purchasing a reel like that. A color coded ZPI or G1 1012 would make it the perfect reel... You might be surprised with how well the PE spool casts. I have least experience wi...

904 is very well suited for jigs in that range. After i got one, it quickly became my go to for that purpose. It can also do much more. It’s an exceptional rod.
