Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

^^^ I think "hogsticker knows something he didn't share with us.... Thank you sir for changing a variable and encouraging a retest... I did the best I could without respooling reels. I have everything setup differently now than I did before. I was able to get consistant enough results to prove the p...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

To the best of my memory that test I used a 3.8" keitech in black shad color with a gammy 3/0 1/8oz screwlock hook with 30lb Daiwa j-braid on a 7'0" mf envy black... It could have been a different weight hook though. lol The point of the test was to see what the improvement of casting distance was p...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

hmmm... well since the O.P. asked about casting and in 3 pages nobody actually mentioned distance I guess I will try to share my experience. I like testing and comparing things fairly. I own a steez sv tw, and a tat sv tw. One day I put them both on the same rod , both were spooled with the same lin...

need not red spool for stradic cl4+ hg

I am looking for a different spool (just needs different color) for my stradic cl4+hg.

clear sideplates

Does anybody know if and where clear sideplates can be purchased for Daiwa casting reels? Like the ones on the megabass reels for zillion or steez specifically.
Thank you

I have searched but find no posts discussing or reviewing or owning arachnid rods from cabelas. I feel they are some of the best rods available for the <$200 price point. My spnn...
