Re: New 2018 Power Pro

Modern guides should have no issue with any braided line. Thanks for including some extra small diameters with this new release!!! I enjoyed the original Super Slick in that timber brown color, just frayed a bit on me. I say that but it still never broke or lost me a fish. That being said, I will d...

Re: Steez A Question

Buy it! Lol. I don't regret purchasing my 8.1 steez a from Japan. It's the most expensive reel I've bought to date too and I can't decide which rod I want to use it on cause it's that good and a charm to use. It can go on my finesse rod for throwing smaller baits and weightless senkos, crankbaits r...

Re: Steez A Question

Yes, my jdm 8.1 has the clicking drag like a salt water reel. Thanks for the feedback. I am assuming you like your JDM 8.1 alright also??? I know the warranty isn't there with JDM, and for that reason the magseal spooks me a bit as do any major potential issues... Really nice all around reel. There...

Re: Steez A Question

Don't mean to rehash an older thread here, but it is better than making a new one... Just need to sell my Tatula HD to justify spending $360 on a reel, that will be the most I have ever dropped. Do the JDM Steez A XH have the drag clicker??? Yes, my jdm 8.1 has the clicking drag like a salt water r...

Re: Steez A Question

Don't mean to rehash an older thread here, but it is better than making a new one... Had a new thought... What about putting a Steez A spool into a Zillion SV TW? Whats the difference from a Steez A to the SS SV spool? I've tried the SS SV in the ZLN SV with good results with light top water popper...

Re: How fast is too fast?

That SX with IVCB is pretty cool, never seen anything like that before. An ALX with the MGX2 style braking would be a reel I would like to try. Hell if the new AL-F is convertible maybe I will try another ABU after all!!! Still thinking the Premier would be a cool reel with the lighter spool it has.

Re: ICAST 2018 Quick Hits : New HIGH END UL rods from St. Croix

loving these, not crazy about the reel seat but not a deal breaker, those guides are killer. i have 3 of the regular legend elites (2 6'10" mlxf and a 6'3" mlxf) and love these rods. ill likely add either the 6'4" LXF or the 6'9" LXF. I've looked at St. Croix for an extra Light ...

Re: what swim bait head are you using?

I've tried so flippin many and now I'm sticking to one. Picasso smart mouth Gamakatsu Picasso heads for the win. I use the #1 on 2.8" and 3" baits, the 2/0 on 3.3", the 4/0 on 4.8"s. I might be wrong about the last, could be 5/0 in the Gamakatsu version because they run a tad bi...

Re: New squarebill combo

Thanks to Gary from the tackletrap, I received this Megabass Destroyer Javelin and paired it up with my 8.1:1 Steez A TW. It's very purdy. Xhs steez a was bought from digitaka for an awesome price too. Very good looking reel/rod!!! I am checking out the Steez A from that same website at the moment,...

Re: How fast is too fast?

Braking system is their Inifni Brake System which means it has both centrifugal and magnetic brakes.. Doesn't take much to convert to IVCB braking. :big grin: New spool, new sideplate. Or if removable take off the magnetic wheel on spool and basic centrifugal brakes to replace with the IVCB setup. ...

Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

Also just watched the most recent Project T 2018 video... Some of the scenes show the Tatula 100 with the black lock plate on the handle nut and then the other scenes show the ultra tacky plastic one. The end picture with the top view ALWAYS shows the plastic nut cover though, and so do the product...
