I saw a comment from "someone in the know" that there will not be any new 50 or 70 size reels in 2020.

Re: Z Man Chatterbait Micro trailer?

I tried a Panfish Assassin 2" swimbait on there and it matched up very well and works great.

Re: Megabass LBO baits

I don't notice much difference in the action, if anything it may start to dive quicker/easier and seems to have the same darting and body roll. The LBO baits that I've tried (including 110) cast extremely well, and I prefer them to non-LBO if given the choice. Aside from casting, is there any differ...

Re: New Poison Adrena

Can anyone compare and contrast the new 7" 3" MH with the Gen 1, 7' 2" MH-G? Thanks for any insight!

Re: Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

It never dawned on me to try increasing the brake setting, but you were absolutely right--I set the dial to 20 and the spool was more free (enough to cause a backlash) so that was an improvement. I want to send a huge THANK YOU out to everyone that replied, I greatly appreciate all your help! This h...

Are the black marker marks on the silver magnets lined up when the dial is set to max? And do they line up with the notches in the magnet holders?

Re: Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

Yes, bought brand new and fished it with brakes set at 6 initially. Once I became frustrated with the heavy braking feel, I went to zero and have been fishing it that way for weeks with only a very slight improvement. I checked the inductor and was able to lift it up and down about 3/16" and it did ...

Re: Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

Thanks for you input. Unfortunately I don't have any other spools that I can try. The Tatulas and this Steez are the only Daiwa reels I have...I mostly have Metaniums, Aldebarans etc. Guessing I will have to send it to Daiwa but hoping to avoid that if possible. Mine does not have the issues you des...

Calling all Steez SV TW Experts

Hello, I bought a Steez SV TW brand new last year. The casting distance is ok but never that impressive. For comparison sake, I have Tatula SVs that can cast almost twice as far. I initially had 20lb fluoro on in and thought maybe the line was a factor. I recently switched to 10lb Sniper, and distan...

Re: giron or gigantrel jr.?

They are both worth having and great lures. The Ganteral has better action due to being 3 pieces instead of just 2. If you need a smaller profile though, the Giron may work better.

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

I was also very curious about the IPT and the box for the 8.1 says 29.9".

The 6.3 says 23.2" IPT.
