Re: Do you mind Daiwa going full Made In Thailand?

Made in Japan is a big deal for me. In some cases this is the only decision factor. If Daiwa moves everything to Thailand and customers eat it up, next move would be to even lower expense country like Papua New Guinea. Basically they don't care about quality control. Noticed some companies moved pro...

Has there ever been a valid reason for Daiwa going away from this system?
Answer - average Joe
According to Daiwa when I asked them, the rep told me average Joe couldn’t handle it, this is why they went to single brake dial.

6-7 model is a good finesse rod but probably too light for spooks. 6-11 MH spinner would be a good one for that. I have one if your interested. To me it feels like a light MH or a Medium plus in power.
are you able to cast 3/4Oz lure with this rod?
What size of stripper guide it has?

Re: New Poison Adrena

A rod paired with reel spooled with braid always feels way more sensitive vs same rod with fluoro or mono.

Re: New Poison Adrena

6’11 spinning rod What's the stripper guide (first from handle) size? Why? Really wondering. Because, when I got replacements from “the best rods on the Earth” they downgraded strippers from size 25 to 20, I immediately noticed ~15ft Casting distance shortage. My reels are Daiwa 3000 spool dia 54mm...

Re: Z man Jack Hammer

They are better than standard Z Man offerings, however most Japanese chatterbaits are in the same league with Evergreen. Only difference, they can't be sold in US, because of the patent issues. I know the first is the break blade but what's the second one? The second one is Daiwa Steez chatterbait.
