Re: If you had a choice..which would you choose...why?

This thread was the smartest thing :idea: I ever did..I not only found the rod of my dreams (and have the pictures to show someone)..but also the name of the guy who made it.

I'm guessing if Cal is using the Steez SVF rod instead of the GLX for plastic....the Steez must be really sensitive.

Re: If you had a choice..which would you choose...why?

I'm going to take a shot in the dark and guess that Cal's custom GLX MB843 (which just happens to be the rod of my dreams.....in the same color to boot) is priced on the high side of the Steez 7'1" model.
<sigh> :cry:

If you had a choice..which would you choose...why?

To stimulate some conversation....if you were given a choice between a new G.Loomis MBR783C GLX or a new Daiwa Steez STZ 671MHFBA which would you choose as your single fishing rod? Both appear to be pretty evenly matched on paper......both MH casting. Curious to hear the rationale for making a choic...

Manufacturers used to give a wrench and a ...
