another "what's next for daiwa?" thread

Post by Jason Penn » Fri Mar 29, 2019 9:47 am

i've been looking for a steez xt 7'mh for a while now unsucessfully. i've now started to think i may just have to bite the bullet and go with an ags, but they are getting a bit more rare on the bay. so i'm wondering are the steez rods maybe getting phased out? i know the xt's have been discontinued although they're still on daiwa's site.

if the past year or two is any indication, the airbeam seat is probably history. that's a shame, cuz that is the most comfortable seat to me.

I will tell you that the AGS Steez rods are still in production. The 71MH we have on order won't be in until the end of June unfortunately. It's a spectacular rod and in my opinion a significant upgrade over the XT version which is a nice stick... I'm a huge fan of the Steez AGS series and have never been a Steez rod guy until these...

Glad to see your positive feedback Gary, I just received a 7'6H AGS today, I hope to get it out on the water sometime this weekend and put it through its paces.

I see that Daiwa Australia has started to import some of the newer Steez compile x line ... maybe USA will do the same like the Strike Force and the long awaited Harrier Finesse to mate up with the New Steez CT SV.

i've seen some listings on ebay from them. i got a used ags 7'1 mh, and i don't really think i like it any more than the 7'1 h xt i have. i do like the guides though. maybe daiwa will add those to the 7'1 h comp x, i think that'd be pretty cool.

If "CT" is in trend now, then let Zillion CT SV be released. :D

And I can hardly wait!
Try not to let your mind wander. It is much too small to be outside unsupervised.
