Re: It’s 2018, why are you buying reels from the past

For me I can’t get enough of the older Alphas/Zonda, the body type is perfect for my hands. Made in Japan and build to last! http://img.photobucket.com/albums/v488/rayrock99/1B1BCCED-8FE7-4E57-8C0C-ED86D558A794_zpsmcszzczy.jpg OMG..... ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) ](*,) Those are superb :) =D> =D> =D> Wonderi...

Re: SV103- too smooth?

Wonder if what you are feeling is the difference between the brass gears in your SV103 and the aluminum/aluminum alloy gears in your Steez reels? There is definitely a difference in feel between the two material types with brass feeling "smoother" than aluminim. I noticed that as well when jumping b...

Re: ICAST 2018 Rumors

It does look like the Steez frame. It even has that cutout on the non handle sideplate where the recessed brake dial would go if it were an actual Steez. Interesting :-k

Re: Ordering from Japan... Metanium MGL???

Japanlureshop and Japanangler are my favorites. Super fast shipping, usually get my order in about 3 business days. A bonus with Japanlureshop is when you are a regular customer they include little gifts with your order. I have received some pretty cool items from them (MB and Evergreen lures, tools...

Curado 71 knob replacement

Hi All,

I am looking to swap out the knobs on my Curado 71 and was wondering if the Metanium knobs are a direct swap (with new caps of course). Also, any thoughts on what is the best way to take off the Curado knob caps?

Thanks in advance!

Re: Megabass Orochi XX... What’s next for the USDM??

Do any of the higher power (F7 and up) casting models have the longer trigger? I remember my xxx Destruction had a longer trigger than the Chimera. If anyone has an answer it would be much appreciated. Thanks! Yes. For instance the trigger on the Aklys is longer than trigger on Perfect Pitch. Thank...

Re: Phenix Feather

I have an Alphas SV on my 6'9" MH and it feels great. It might be too light light for that rod but tried a Curado 70 also and it fit but wasn't as comfortable to me (felt it sat too far back on the seat). Hope this helps.

Re: Which reel for my Helium 3, 7' heavy?

I have a Met MGL on mine and think it feels great, super light. Not sure how well it will hold up to high resistance baits however. One thing I noticed with heavier reels is since the rod is so light, the combo feels off balance. Might just be me though and I need to hit the gym though :lol:
