Re: Pixy Question: Airy Red for Ned?

I use an airy red to throw ned rigs quite frequently, it can handle them withou issue, even more with a light powered rod like the one you are going to use, I use 7# flouro most of the time and 18# Samurai braid. I can throw a 3" weightless senko without problem... As Gary pointed out a bearing upgr...

Re: Most refined t3???

My current favorite is a FX73sv, I have a Mago (actually 2) waiting to be fished as it is supposed to be the most refined out of the box. I sent the FX73sv, SV8.1 and 1016SH to Ian and they returned being very differnet reels, I think Ian´s magic is most notorious on T3´s (and steez)

Re: Reel Suggestions for NRX 893c

Mine is paired with a Steez 1016SH SV TW (tuned by Ian) and it is a match that would be very hard to beat. I have tried OG Steez reels and they work great also but still I prefer the new TW, I have also tried the Aldebaran HG and liked it but it does not feel as refined. I agree that the NRX 893 des...

Re: Reel for weightless Senkos and Flukes

Since you also plan to throw 4" Senkos (Weightless I pressume)I would recommend a lighter reel to go with a light weight MH rod. My top choice is the new Steez SS TW, it is about perfect but I did send it to IAN for his magic and I have to say it is the best reel I have ever experienced. My second c...

Re: Sharing my fishing gear

Very nice lineup! How do you compare the XX to Levante?

Is it my imagination or do you like to fish senkos? :lol: :lol: :lol:

Re: Steez AGS rod

I just received the 7 1 MtHXF Steez ags rod, as others have already stated it is subdued, It balances right at the edge of the front grip with a Steez SV TW, it feels very crisp and one feature I have always loved about steez rods is the reel seat as it seems to fit my hand very well and is much mor...

Re: My experience buying rods using Buyee BEWARE

Well, after some time and email messages back an d forth Buyee did reinburse me the total cost of the transaction minus what I paid in duties and broker fees. Their coverage was very good and I am still trying to have UPS pay the rest as they were responsible. I hope that the information help others...

Re: Counterfeit Megabass Reels?

I also resisted the monkey for a long time, but when I say they had left only one Viola righty for $200 as well as just one Mago T3 at a lower price than it could find anywhere else I placed the order, I had already made a few purchases from this seller so I was not surprised when they showed up in ...

Re: What's your favorite Daiwa Steez model?

If I am not mistaken, the Steez SV 6.3 already has a 103 sized spool, the one that came with a shallower 105 size spool was the steez xh limited.

Re: My experience buying rods using Buyee BEWARE

Thanks for your support, in fact I had decided to share my experience even before I received the broken rod just so that any fellow TT member had a closer idea on the cost of using Buyee and how hard it is to have them provide any sort of consolidating or packaging service with fishing rods.
