Re: Daiwa Steez Rods

I've spent a good bit of time with the US Steez AGS rods and they are deserving of top tier, enthusiast level classification and performance in my hands. The 761MML spinning rod is incredible and one of the best spinning rods I've ever fished, the 71MHXF is a great stick, the 74XH, and on and on... ...

Re: Where to buy MB parts for Steez

You can't just buy Megabass reel parts, unless you have the original defective part. Only way to find those parts is to hope someone swapped their stock MB reel parts with something else. So how does that work? You send the part to them and they send a new one back? My experience hasn't been quite ...

Re: So who bought the ZPI Alcance?

Ask Bryan about the very first one that came across his work bench at The Tackle Trap... ](*,)

I'm also out and perplexed at the choice to move away from their legendary product line. The their latest PG spool for Daiwa is an absolute masterpiece... I stocked up :lol:

Yes it is. The kits in stock at The Tackle Trap include the Carbontex drag stack for the upgrade. Metanium MGL Brass Gear Sets It does not have the 7.4 gear set in right game, just left hand. Yes true, I believe the pinion is on back order on the RH sets in that ratio. I wasn't sure whether you nee...

Re: TackleTour Shootout : Stella FJ vs Exist LT

Thanks, have you opened them both up to see the key differences? I plan on buying one in the future but the more info the better because the Exist is not cheap :big grin: Bryan is Exist LT certified and the chief reel tech at The Tackle Trap. It's beyond my pay grade to crack that bad boy open and ...

Re: TackleTour Shootout : Stella FJ vs Exist LT

How would you compare the Exist LT to the Certate LT? Besides the aluminum vs magnesium? I added bearings to my Certate LT so it has the exact same bearing placement as the Exist LT. Weight plays a big role... the Exist LT is pretty special because of that. The Certate LT is nice too, but it's no E...

Re: TackleTour Shootout : Stella FJ vs Exist LT

Very nice review, well done. I've done my own shoot out as well with both reels on everything from the legendary Steez AGS 76MML, Legend Elite 7'6" ML and M, Megabass Flyssa, Brigand, Addermine, X7 Simoom, NRX 852s, 872s, Conquest 902, and several others. There's no doubt the Stella is a high qualit...

Re: Orochi XX AKLYS or Destroyer Warhammer?

Depending on how heavy you're punching, the Bunker Buster is more than enough punch rod for most guys. I like it a lot more than the Warhammer unless you're going 1.5 oz and up. The Orochi XX Aklys is incredibly well balanced, but feels heavy in hand due to the butt weight. That weight is what makes...

Re: Megabass Orochi XXX Venom

I wouldn't comfortably throw a 1/2 oz on the Venom, but I'm not a fan of glass rods for vibrating jigs. It will handle the 3/8 oz fine, and maybe with braid and an affinity for glass rods for this application, I'm sure some guys could make it work with 1/2 oz. The Chimaera or the Super Orochi in th...
