Hedgehog ZR from the Tackle Trap, or direct.
I'm a fan of the Hedgehog ZR bearings too. They are a high quality SS bearing.

I suddenly have a craving for chocolate.
That certainly should be a little easier to acquire and a little less expensive than a craving for a new Ito :lol:

Congrats on owning an iconic piece of enthusiast tackle history =D>

I know Daiwa has multiple new models to debut. I'm excited to see them and try them out.
Yes indeed. I've fished quite a few of the new introductions, good stuff coming for sure from our Daiwa friends =D>

Re: Educate Me on TD-Z 103GL-RZ Limited Edition

Thanks !! On the reel, did it palm bad or was it the mechanics of the reel that turned you off ? This platform was always awkward no matter what I tried to do with it. I appreciated and understood the concept, the design seemed to make sense, but in practice, it just was a failure for me in my hand...

Re: Educate Me on TD-Z 103GL-RZ Limited Edition

Thanks to you both for your service - I didn't know your son was also active duty, congrats! On the reels - those are all left hand built on the "flipping frame" design. I had that reel, and several other with that odd shaped frame, but no matter how I tried, I couldn't get used to them and got rid ...

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

The 10# SS112 has performed beautifully for me with finesse type applications. It's on my Exist LT/Steez AGS 76MML combo now. I find it to be a little softer/more limp than comparable SS140 in 11#, but the SS140 does sink a little faster. Both are incredible lines - get a spool of each and report b...

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

Between the S112 and S140 which do you recommend for finesse (and weight)? I think I’m giving up on FC for a bit. 😃 Sorry OP to derail your thread.

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

Wha--?? How much does a spool of that stuff set you back? Its on our site and is becoming VERY popular, along with the standard SS112 sinking braid - $30 for a 150m before any Tackle Tour member discounts are used... I have never used any of those propeller style swimbait heads, do they actually gi...

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

I was skeptical of those. Good to hear they actually work! I figured the prop would foul against the bait all the time. There is a small cup on the hook shank behind the prop and a small ball on the shank of the hook that are well engineered to prevent this issue. The bait keeper is also very well ...

Re: Shimano Exsence vs Daiwa Certate LT

Please do! That would be an interesting combo as my dream setup of a Steez AGS 7'6" and Exist 19 is exactly that... a dream. :) That 76MML Steez AGS/Exist 19 is indeed a dream combo - I thoroughly enjoy mine. The Megabass Flyssa paired up with the 19 Certate is also an incredible combo. I've been f...

Re: Destroyer Flyssa vs Legend Elite 76mlxf

I have both rods, both are very nice indeed. I am generally impressed with the blanks, build quality, and guide train of the St. Croix Legend family. I've been fishing a lot of their rods lately in various series. I find the reel seat and handle design on the Croix to be less than comfortable in my ...

The new Triza rods are up for pre-order at The Tackle Trap. We're hoping to see the early ordered rods arrive in July or August.

Re: **Random thoughts on Megabass**

Too much fun!! The Hattori Hanzo would be an epic build indeed... there are a few rods Megabass has made already that make me think of that mythical, legendary blade. The "Hanzo" collection maybe, past, present, and future 8-) The Mothra would have been a perfect name for the Black Jungle Power Vers...

Re: RaGe vs. Spicy beaver

They have been a very popular seller since we got them. I haven't fished them yet, but I will soon. We've been getting a lot of positive feedback from guys using them as jig trailers and t-rigged specifically. This looks to be another great plastic from the guys at RI...

Re: 19 Certate LT or JDM Exist

Thanks Gary. If the Exist is Mg, then I'll pass due to spending about 50% doing inshore fishing. You're welcome, but keep in mind that Exist LT is salt safe. The advanced paint/coating is extremely difficult to scratch and is also protected inside of the reel... Magsealed bearings are also a bonus ...
