Re: Curado e Revision series info

Could it be to differentiate the age of the reels, for warranty determination? Shimano does not work this way. Warranty is based upon legitimate sales and official purchase receipt information usually, not slight color variations or part differences. More than likely is a result of simple productio...

Re: TT or TTF ... Which came first for you?

Forum first by biased recommendation. Reviews secondary discovered upon entry. Also, there are a difference of opinions concerning review conclusions versus harried conclusions and the resulting down the rabbit hole recommendations veering off into off shore on both counts. Several reviews rate high...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

https://www.theledger.com/sports/20190103/sea-trout-are-most-consistent-catch-for-tampa-bay-area-anglers-this-week For some reason we don’t have them along the beaches here (Pensacola Beach). Drive an hour to the west to Orange beach, AL and they are everywhere in the surf. Not sure why that is, bu...

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

No I don't. I have done nothing but support a great company and a product I cherish.

No shame in that!

I'd better stop here before I get in trouble again.

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

I agree Todd. That is the largest one I have ever seen. Beautiful fish. One day a friend's boat broke down and we had to camp out overnight on an island off coast of Tampa, and when I awoke at sunrise and rubbed my eyes I could not believe what I was seeing. The water was boiling as far as I could s...

Re: Knocking Daiwa LT Reels?

Your reel could be an aberration, but 2 brand new reels doing virtually the same thing? That is interesting indeed and tends to show a pattern. Reels should be perfectly smooth and virtually noise free right out of the box. And if it isn't...and if it is still under warranty, I would return it immed...

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

I simply stated fact. If that offends you, maybe you should re-think how you state things. At this point, are you trying to convince everyone else or yourself that what you say is the truth? Sounds like the latter to me....but like I said before, you do you. Please, please, please go back and find ...

I think Ford outsells Chevy 1000 to 1. A coworker thinks it's more like 10,000 to 1.


Yep! I agree! Even though I have no clue! =D>

Re: Is the Steez SV TW currently the best low profile bass reel on the market?

Here we go again...I didn't say you couldn't bud. But if you're going to post, for whatever reason, that a "major reel manufacturer calls forums helpless" and here you are, "representing and defending shimano" or "helping people" comes across as a bit hypocritical. I am NOT here representing any co...
