Re: A couple new acquisitions...

Gorgeous combo! Has anyone been able to test this rod out fishing carolina rigs in the 3/4-1.5oz range? I'm going to only be buying one new rod this year and need something to pull triple duty as a carolina rig, football jig, and pitching rod.

Re: Need a reel to pair with the MB Cliffhanger!

A Steez on sale with the IS BF spool won't run you much over what a new px68 costs. The spool and Steez combo will blow you away, I'm sure of it.

Re: Shimano Curado E video how do they cast like that???

On my Curado I only run two brake pins, and often find myself thinking I should drop it down to one. This is probably because I have gotten used to my Steez. I dial my CC knob just tight enough where the spool will not move from side to side when in free spool, this lets me have more consistency acr...

Re: zonda hedgehog custom

Only 44,000 yen, dang, that's not bad. I wonder if it's just a a normal Zonda sporting a IS Finesse spool and repainted sideplate?

Re: Durability of aluminum gears

Regarding hard anodized aluminum, I can testify that it is more scratch and dent resistant than titanium. This however I would not think to be an advantage in gears, as tensile and compression strength are what I would assume to be paramount, which anodizing does not offer. Those who know a little a...

Phenix K2 blank for jigs

I am looking at possibly building myself another jig rod and am curious what blank you guys think would be a good fit. I am looking at the TX-715H-C for jigs 3/8-1/2 (undressed). Would this blank be similar to the St. Croix 5C70MHF-G-10?

Re: Jackson Coosa or Wilderness Systems Tarpon 120?

I paddle a FeelFree Moken 12 and often wish that I had the ability to stand and fish. You can stand in it no doubt (though I am light >165) but fishing while standing just does not work. The speed of these boats though I just absolutely love; since being able to paddle to the other side of a 400+ ac...

Re: Witnessed Ebay Insanity Today

I have gotten Megabass baits for half retail NIB. You just have to lowball a buttload of them and pray that you don't win half of em or you will be broke :roll:

Re: steez 103ha vs sol for casting 1/8oz-1/4oz

Steez with Megabass Finesse spool of course. As woodt said a true 1/8oz weight and nothing else isn't going to be all that great on either reels stock. Now a Pixy with OS bearings or Steez with MB Finesse spool matched with the right rod is a different story.
