I got mine!

Post by Lucky1 » Mon Oct 01, 2007 7:41 pm

I have been quite jealous of everyones stuff around here (except Gamblers new Handle) ;) :D so I finally broke down and ordered some much needed equipment ;). Thanks to Brooklyn Bill for getting me what I need in a timely fashion. I ended up going for light weight instead of the bling mode. I had originally planned on the bassart knobs, but after being informed that they will not fit on the steez handles, I decided to go this route instead.
I Wont get to use it until weekend but Im still excited none the less. Anyone know if the aftermarket bearings are much of an improvement? Thanks, G

Thanks guys, Im planning on using it for a jig rod. As I stated earlier, I havent had a chance to use it yet but Im hoping to this weekend. Im planning on a gold handle plate and a red anodized drag star this winter when the rod isnt in use. Another way to waste more money. :? :)

Beautiful setup. Let us know how it performs. I'm contemplating a Steez as my jig reel as I assume it will pitch 3/8oz jigs very well.

Beautiful! Do you have a link to where you got it? I think I may have to order the same for mine.

Is that "90" on the handle for 90mm? Or I guess it could be an "06"?
