Dude….awesome. So Cal, I know you do not like to play favorites with your “children” but…..for the sake of this thread….which do you “prefer more” on “most days”….the Steez or your GLX custom?

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.

I don´t want to know how much they cost, I want to know who made them Cal, BM sez that I can save for a light saber like that one.

man Cal. . . so you and Davej both have those new custom Otterods with the purple accents? those are sweet! one of those is on my list but i've got a few more items before i can get to that. should be able to get one just in time to match it up with a Zillion HLC though. :big grin: you should nickname those "TD-Ito Specials" ;)

It looks like a Megabass rod almost and I bet the performance is there as well. Whats the exact model reel seat you have on that custom stick Cal? Sickness :shock:
