Re: KVD to Minn Kota

I'm sure it would be a cheap deal too! Let's face it minn Kota is all over motorguide. I would love to know the cost of that deal. I still prefer the metal pedal of the MG Tour 109. I know them well enough to do most of my own repairs. The X5 has had way too many problems for me to switch. I am hea...

Re: Swim bait Hack ?

I'm not sure what you asking or what bait you are using. You need to clarify. You might be able to take the nose sleeve out and use Mend-it to seal the hole. You can then use an Owner Beast twistlock hook. Make sure that you cut a slot at the bottom of your bait if it is thick. This will help your h...

Re: Is there a better choice for me then sunline natural

I am like everyone in that I love the feel of the Defier, but I have a hard time fishing most nylons anymore because I got used to the decreased stretch of Shooter and Sniper fluoro. The Super Natural has stretch that is very similar to the Defier, which is fine if you don't need to move a big fish ...

Re: pros/cons, steez sv tws, us or jdm model?

It's not really about JDM vs USDM to me. It's about price and features. I do my own maintenance and warranty work. The JDM reels are usually cheaper right now. Buy JDM if you are not worried about sending a reel back to Japan. I've never had or seen a bad Steez. I don't think that there is a differe...

Re: Saltstrong abrasion test

Thought some people might like to see saltstrong's line test. I guess people's strong opinions and calling things moronic is why we get reveiws on zebco 33's enstead of a long overdue line review I think is a bit of a stretch (pun intended) to fish a specific brand of line, or type of material beca...

Re: Custom work in progress... Matagi,Fuji PTS.....

It's a one size fits all, but you need the 17mm OD Carbon tube to be able to mount it in the rod blank. In my opinion the ECS, Alps AGC and the AmTack Edge are much more comfy than the PTS. The side edges if you don't have a very big hand tend to get uncomfortable after a good day of fishing! Reel ...

You need a carbon fiber tube reemed to the size of the blank. The tubes are about $10 at Mudhole.

Re: Anyone use an SV103 for jerkbaits?

The SV103H is very good for jerkbaits. It capable of throwing baits down to 3/16 oz. with control on the right rod. I'd rather have a lighter reel if you go light on the rod and baits.

Re: Saltstrong abrasion test

Not all mono, fluoro, or braid have the same abrasion resistance. All kinds of different resins and materials are used. It is moronic to think that all mono is more abrasion resistant than fluoro because this is just not the case. The guy in the video didn't even do a good job of controlling for dia...

Re: Daiwa 60th Anniversary reels

I was on JapanTackle.com looking at the show pictures and Jun mentioned that he is looking forward to the 60th Anniversary Daiwa models. Does anyone know what might be coming down the line for the year? I am also wondering why Megabass hasn't released a Steez TW variant yet. Thanks! Go to the Daiwa...

Re: Alphas SV105 problem

Does anyone have a cure for the problem of constantly adjusting the cast control magnet settings inadvertently while fishing? I use a LHW SV105 and so my hand is constantly in the palming position whether casting or retrieving, three fingers in front of the trigger. I don't have this trouble with a...

Re: Steez SV (non TW)

I own the Steez SV103XS with BRASS 8.1 gears. With the exception of BRASS gears, an SV spool, lighter and better Zaion drag star, lighter and better handle (with added I-shape knobs), and a Zaion sideplate, it has the same parts as the old Steez. Yes, I like the feel of aloy sideplates also, but thi...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

That's a nice selection of parts on the R+. Yeah, kinda burnt out on red, but this seems like just the right amount. Not overly done. The limited 105 spool is money in the TDZ platform for shallow apps. The limited 103 is fantastic for deep line apps. I've tried every SV spool under the sun in this...
