Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Well, it's officially up on TW. $700!!! :shock: https://www.tacklewarehouse.com/Daiwa_Steez_CT_SV_Casting_Reels/descpage-DSCS.html The real question is why you would buy one in the US when you can order it from Japan for $225 cheaper? I think we will see these on the USDM market for a year or so an...

Re: Steez CT- Where is it in stock?

I got mine through Digitaka. I checked the usual sites a few times a day and eventually got lucky one Saturday morning when I saw it in stock. I ordered it immediately. The price difference between JT and Digitaka is around $66.00. Add in shipping from JT and your close to $100.

Phenix Rods Hydra 8 Strand Braided Line Green

I liked the review on here so I ordered a spool of 40 lb for chatterbaits. Is anyone else using it? How do you like it?

Re: Reel Selection

When I purchase a new reel, I sell the one it replaced. I can't stand having a reel sitting around collecting dust. I would rather it find a happy home.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Which model are you guys buying, 6.3 or 8.1....I'm bit undecided, never had reel with high gear ratio but seeing IPT on 8.1 is more in line with 7.1 reels it does not seem that high. Will be mostly used with lures from 1/8 to 3/8 (cranks, jerkbaits, spinnerbait) I went with the 8.1:1. It will be us...

KVD 1.5 Deep Diver

Any opinions about the KVD 1.5 Deep Diver? I catch a ton of bass on the original. I wondered if these work well.

Re: Best grease and oil for servicing reels. 2019 edition.

I've learned this the hard way too. I've put carbontex into all my CU200E7's, CH50MGs, CU200Bs, CH100D7s, and maybe a few more I'm forgetting. If you ever fish braid or any heavy line, greased drag washers lead to a slipping drag. I have a tub of Cal's, but I won't put it on my drag washers anymore...

Re: Your line preference for casting model NRX?

I like fluoro but I pitch from the front of a boat and feel as though it transmits strikes better on slack line when the bait is falling. If I were fishing strictly from the bank with kind of any cover, I would probably use braid.

Hedgehog vs ZPI

At one time, I had Boca ABEC 7's in most of my reels. I eventually removed all of them because I hated the noise and vibration from them. I'm getting ready to clean my Steez 103's which all have their original spool and side plate bearings and am thinking about replacing them with Hedgehog or ZPI be...

I use mine with tubes, flukes, small plastic swimbaits, light Texas rigs, and whacky rigs in light to no cover.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Is the frame smaller or just the spool? I have a 1012 which is great. If the frame is a touch smaller, it would be a Pixy SV TW, which I’ve been waiting for?
