Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

The reel came in the mail today and all I can say is wow. It's the smoothest reel I have ever used. I can't wait for fishing season.

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

I was refunded. Fantastic, I know quite a few guys who were ultimately refunded. Glad to hear that... we try hard! It seemed legit as he said he had a guide business and sent an invoice from a tackle shop. The invoice from the tackle shop was misspelled though. I was the one screaming for you guys ...

What does someone pay to get a reel shipped to the states with the service? $30?

Re: Fake G Loomis Conquest?

There’s been a ton of fake Loomis rods being posted lately. Seems like all of a sudden it’s blown up in the last month or so. A bunch of guys got scammed on another site when new NRX’s were posted for $200. Be smart people! I saw, locked, and ultimately deleted that thread over there. Folks thinkin...

Re: Megabass Destroyer Addermine vs G Loomis NRX 852S JWR

Hey guys, I'm thinking about getting the addermine but was curious how you guys hold your rods and reels. I hold mine right handed with the reel foot between my middle finger and ring finger. Two fingers in front. Two behind. It seems like the handle design favors more fingers in front of the reel....

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

Are the spool bearings 3X10X4 like the Steez A and SV TW? I have an extra set of ZPIs.

I think I'm sold. Chris is throwing a MB Deep Six on the Javelin in this video.

Re: Megabass Destroyer Javelin?

Javelin would be a 893.7 IMO :lol: but with a med fast taper unlike the NRX. Yes it is a versatile rod that can do Texas rig, senkos, chatterbaits, and deep diving 1oz cranks. I use mine mostly for launching swim jigs and chatterbaits to cover water. Tried some Arashi 18ft divers and handles it fin...

Re: Megabass Destroyer Javelin?

How would the rod fit in a lineup of:

844 GLX
843 GLX
894 NRX
893 NRX
110 Special

I'm looking for something to handle bigger crank baits and I like faster than normal action rods for that.

Re: Help with last higher end spinning set up!

Seems to be a pretty popular rod! I have got to get my hands on one. Is 7’6 the most universal option or just your favorite. Cause it seems a bit long if you aren’t going more deep water? There's a Winston fly rod model (8'6 4wt B2T) that was coined the Staff of Moses because it was so sweet. This ...

Here is a comparison for the sizing. I threw in a Tatula LT 4000 in one of the pictures.

Re: STEEZ SV TW 1012SV-XH

I have a US market SV TW. It will be able to handle a 90 popper no problem. I have my reel on a 843. My reel holds more line than an Aldebaren too. I have Aldebarens, Met MGL, Steez A, and a Steez SV TW. The SV TW is my favorite reel.

Re: Stradic CI4+ Reel Stems

Thanks for doing that. Now it's time to compare both of them to reels I already have.
