NRX 916UBR with Zillion Type R w/upgraded 8.1 gearset and high speed levelwind. Doubles as my Heavy Frog rog/big swimbait rod, and I guess an umbrella rig rod if I ever actually threw one lol...

Re: Gear ratio: 8 VS 7?

I like the 8's mainly for jig/creature/punching rigs - I'm moving the bait with the rod only for the most part the reel is just pulling the bait in for another cast. I had stayed away from 8+ ratios in the past but picked up 2 JDM Steez A's in 8.1 and they work well. I then also upgraded my Zillion ...

Re: What rods compare to a NRX 852c ?

Quality wise, Dobyns HP 702 would match up - it is made in China though. Dobyns will balance better, but the NRX will be more sensitive and slightly lighter. Haven't tried the Xtasy but early reports are good. I've heard/read great things about the Z-Bone line, but refuse to give Trey any more of my...

Re: Steez SV TW1012SV-XH opinions

I want to say I read a comparison of the Steez 1016SV G1 and the ZIllion 1016SV G1 spools and the Zillion version was preferred, as far as the 1016's go? Or am I mis-remembering this? That was one person's opinion as I recall. Suffice to say, the performance is close. If just buying the spool for p...

Re: Daiwa Spool Case



Another recommendation for these - I bought a half doz from them, had them in 3 days. Perfect fit for low profile baitcasting spools, and clear not opaque so easy to see the contents. Thanks WillyW!

Re: Anyone add weight to butt section for better balance?

Another mudhole balancer user on the 893 and 894 - however I trimmed them down so they are the same length as the butt cork, so the don't hang over... I also tried one on my 916UBR, but it just made the rod too heavy, so I took it off. To me you can get to a point where adding too much weight defeat...

Re: Steez A spool options?

I have a Steez A spool in a SV TW and it casts pretty sweet to me . Great control and bombs boast out there with ease . Interesting, I though this wasn't possible - ie it would only work the other way around. Good to hear it's working well for you. I threw the Zillion SV G1 spools in the A's this p...
