Re: Megabass rods

I have over 30 MB rods currently and have sold a dozen more and only had two breakages. Both my fault. XX Amart Flipping Specials, one was a fish ripped over the boat that broke the rod as it came down behind me, the other was jammed into brush as I was motoring in to get a stuck fish in a tournamen...

Re: Daiwa Z: Times Have Changed

Swimbaits for me, too heavy really for consistent use in much else. I wouldnt say the Bantam MGL is a replacement, but its a nice reel in its own.

Re: Budget TDZ builds

Driveshafts are a tough source for TD-Z's now. You're more than likely going to need to find someone to cut, drill, and tap them to accept a Steez bolt. It's an upgrade over the stock setup as well, much more durable. As for budget, theres nothing budget about a TD-Z build :lol: Drags need to be car...

Re: Curado 100D Is it worth keeping

The D series is arguably one of the best iterations of the Curado. I'd keep it. I myself am a complete Daiwa junky, yet I still have my Curado 201DPV.

Re: Where to buy MB parts for Steez

Seems it used to be an exchange program. Now like Gary said, some dealers in the know can source parts themselves direct. They are very expensive though.

Re: Taking spooled reels on flights...

Over the last couple years I've flown to multiple states with spooled reels and never had an issue with them in carry on. They did flag my bag because of the lead weights, they needed to see them. Baits with hooks and loose hooks passed with flying colors. Anything over a size 1 we put in checked ba...

Re: Daiwa reels - gaudy or sexy?

I'm down with the flash. I personally find the muted schemes by Shimano to be boring. All about personal taste.

I've 12 old Daiko (Cobretty and Dreadnought), but I'm always looking for a Daiko Endsville or a Droogs
I just recently sold a DroogC88M-MH 7'-7" Longcast model. Excellent build quality, just wasnt the taper I was after. I have a 7'-1" H Burroughs which is a sweet old rod for sure.

Re: Rods/reels you regret not buying

When I was in college and getting into higher end gear around '01, I joined the forum and started visiting japan tackle. They had that custom td-z order page up with all those colors to choose from. $599 was almost laughable to me then. Things have changed. I'd like to have one in metallic pink. He...

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

With how many fingers in front of the trigger are there reels meant to be palmed with? You are supposed to palm them while casting? I passed on one a while ago because they didn't look like something I could cast and palm but I have regrets everytime I see one. Just one, they sit low on the rod. Yo...
