TDZ , Steez swept drag star and cast contr. knob

Reels are the hottest topic for TackleTour. Everyone wants to know what the latest and greatest is and how they compare to the old guard. What's the best for light stuff, or what's your suggestion for heavy cover. Do we really need different retrieve ratios? It's all in here.

TDZ , Steez swept drag star and cast contr. knob

Postby Moosehead » Wed Jul 18, 2018 5:51 pm

I installed the dark grey Steez cast control knob and swept drag star on my TDZ 105H I got from TT and it looks awesome but I now need a swept handle for it and was wondering if any one could recommend one. I was thinking 90 - 100 and wanted it grey not colored or carbon fiber, bearing supported and will have Daiwa knobs.

If I'm not mistaken the SV103 comes with a 90mm gray handle.

Ill look for a pic of that handle, thanks! I was simply going to use the knobs and bearing off of my TDZ handle. Was thinking light grey...I just couldn't do bright colors on it, the Steez controls match it perfectly but has enough to contrast and make it mine.

I was also looking at the Tatula HD 100mm light gun metal grey.
Yeah, sitting here looking at the reel, definitely light to medium grey.

That's the handle I have on all my TDZ's, TD-ITO's and red and orange pixys . Looks good in my opinion, otherwise I wouldn't have put them on. \:D/

A lot of pictures on the internet make the Steez A look black along with the handle. The Steez SV TW is black. The Steez A is a gun metal grey as well as the handle. Daiwa should have that in stock.

Plat has a good picture of what color it really is. The top picture /w the black background is a good one.

I gonna order the Steez A 90mm handle for my 103, and 105s, and also order the Tatula 200hd 100mm handle for the 100m. Thanks for all the advice and guidance!

Did you need a spacer between the drag star and handle?

Do you think the same would apply for the Steez A 90mm handle? I bought them both....
