Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Hi guys,
does anybody have the chance to weigh the spool (preferably spooled with 10 pound Fluro)? I want to compare it to my MGExtreme2's to see which would work better for 1/8oz lures.

Thanks! :)

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

I am getting excited! Would you recommend the reel for 1/8 - 1/4 oz lures with 9- 10 pound fluro on the NRX 852c? Since I am a bankfisheeman for the most part, I need the a ility to get some distance in my casts and would still prefer to have some line left on the spool in case the frsh water tuna ...

Re: 2019 Skipping Preference

My take: When skipping lighter lures (1/2oz and below) I prefer Daiwa's SV breaking system (my Steez SV TW in particular shines here). For heavier lures and frogs my 2018 Antares DC MD does a decent job. To be fair though, I have also been successful skipping a jig with my Curado K (that is otherwis...

Re: 2019 Daiwa Morethan PE 1000 TW

For those of you that have the Morethan PE 1000 TW in the 8.6 version... How do you think it handle double duty with Frogs and Paddle Tails (1/2 - 3/4 oz + 5" body). I'm kicking around purchasing a new toy.. No concerns at all! Maybe put 40-50 pound braid on the spool with a fluro leader (when you ...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

As a finesse reel the reel is VERY tempting. I can understand the capacity concerns if you want to throw more normal sized bass baits though. I could definitely see capacity becoming a concern then. No capacity problems for me. It will hold 100 yds of 30# braid if I need it to, though I only filled...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

TW says that the reel can hold 100 yards of 10 pound line . Does that seem to be accurate? Any thoughts? That's tackle warehouse propaganda, designed to hoodwink the american buyer who still believes more line=more better. 100 yards generally bieng the lowest threshold. The 100/10 contention doesnt...

TW says that the reel can hold 100 yards of 10 pound line. Does that seem to be accurate? I am wondering if this is the reel to put on my NRX 852c. Currently running the Abu MGExtreme 2 on it. Wondering if the Steez would be the better option for 1/8 - 1/4oz lures. The Abu's spool holds just soo muc...

Re: Jig/Frog Rod for Bank Fishing

+1 for the H3!

I had the 7' heavy. Super light and very sensitive for the price. There are regular sales on the Kistler rods, so you should get it for even less.

Sold it though because I wanted a longer rod. I have Steez XBD Frog rod for myJig fishing now. Found it used in mint state for 270 USD.

Re: Daiwa Coastal

I have the Daiwa Coastal TW.

Great reel for the money! Sturdy, holds enough line and casts well! I have been using it as my frog reel for 2 years until I switched to become my Saltwater- jerkbait reel. Has been holding up well.

You can find them on ebay for 140 USD.

Re: Am I stupid to buy a Steez A and swap the spool with my new Morethan?

Morethan: 200 Meters of 1.5 PE (generally referred to as .205mm) Steez A: 100 Meters of 16# Nylon (generally referred to as .370 mm) Anyone with any other techinical input? The Steez A holds 100 meters (110 yards...

Re: Am I stupid to buy a Steez A and swap the spool with my new Morethan?

I posted this in the morethan thread looks to me like the Steez A spool will hold more line. Not positive though. Looks like it’s a little more than 4mm deeper than the morethan spool.

Am I stupid to buy a Steez A and swap the spool with my new Morethan?

Hi all, I have the new Morethan that I am using on my heavy Jig rod with 16# Fluro. Great reel and works and looks beautifully with my Steez XBD Frog rod. Only little prob that I have is that the line capacity on the Morethan's stock spool is a bit on the low side. Since I want to get a new reel for...
