Re: Looking at the New BG reels

That is a beefstick. I would consider the 6500 with the 33lb drag. I have the Saltist, which is the Magsealed version. It's pretty amazing.

Re: **Megabass IS platforms upgraded with ZPI spools**

Cristo..those are simply amazing looking. I will eventually jump on a megabass reel. My only hesitaiton so far is they seem to fit in the catagory of "style over substance". (don't get me wrong, I like style!) Performance wise both stock and upgraded, how would you compare a Megabass reel to Daiwa a...

Re: Megabass Destroyer T.S POKER

I haven't gathered my thoughts on the combo's functionality yet. Still dizzy from the cosmetic glory.

Re: Hyuga 72M

My suggestion to anyone who is interested is to wait until TTT has it available. As I kinda of expected from the discription on JLS, they requested (in a very poor english email) an additional 2900 YEN on top of the 2000 YEN at time of checkout. That put the rod a tad over $200 delivered, still a re...

Re: Megabass Destroyer T.S POKER

Very wise words of advice Cristo. I actually took the plunge this morning via TTT before looking for any responses to my post. Certainly paying to play as I don't have $600 to toss around. My reservation for the purchase, was still not so much the money but the fact that it is hard to find any subst...

Re: Megabass Destroyer T.S POKER

Thanks for the feedback. Was really hoping to come across a 9/10 used one that someone is willing to part ways with for the right price. I have a Daiwa Battler on the way from AU and need something stellar to mount it on! If I can't find a good used one, looks like I will be bucking 600 ponies at TT...

Hyuga 72M

Just purchased the Hyuga 72M to pair with a Tatula SV TW 8.1 as a budget power finesse combo. Hope all of the purple does not scare away the fish. It was one of the few, if not the only 1 piece Megabass rod that was over 7ft. and had a lighter power rating. (Although I have no idea what the power ra...

Megabass Destroyer T.S POKER

I have had my eye on a T.S Poker for some time. I now have a reel on the way that I think will pair well with it, but I am still trying to figure out what all will WORK WELL with a 7'2, fast taper, 1/2 oz to 3 oz stick. For anyone who has one, or are very familiar with the rod some thoughts and feed...

Re: Levante vs. Zillion casting rods

No comparison for you, but I can assure you this Megabass XX is a much better rod than the Levante rod. $10 less as a bonus. https://tackletrap.com/index.php?main_page=product_info&cPath=1066_941_942&products_id=4054&zenid=2266eb009981c5338857f3917450f38b If that doesn't get you there, just go to th...

Re: Steez RC vs Poison Ultima

The Steez RC is so sensitive it has to have it's own "safe space". Especially the casting model, it's "triggered" easily. :shock:

Re: Steez 17 spinning reel

I think the Gekk Air 2003, with very similar specs is a better overall reel. Better looking unit (IMHO). Magseal at the roller and pinion, while still coming in at the same Steez weight is what tips the scale for me. Just have to be able to live with the 4.8 gear ratio. They can be picked up for les...
