Re: GAILT : Feedback Request Topic

Double G bought a reel from me. Was quick to pay. Easy to work with and stayed in touch until the reel arrived. Wouldn’t hesitate to buy or sell with him again. :D

Re: Isn't it crazy that some Daiwa platforms are almost 20y old and still in production?

I agree with Cal and Maverick. The Alphas is just a great platform that people really enjoy. No need to change the footprint, just keep dumping newer, better tech in it. I'd like to see a new frame as well, but I also feel the Steez SV TW was the money shot. With so many tuning options, we can all ...

Re: 389Maverick : Feedback Request Topic

Bought a Mb rod from Marc. He was quick to point out the flaws. Was easy to deal with and responded promptly to all questions. An absolute joy to work with even though I am in the US and he is in Canada. Would love purchase more things from Marc in the future! Thanks for the positive transaction! Eh...

Re: Taming my 100m spool

You could try a few things that are of minimial cost: 1. Try a different line if you are using flourocarbon 2. Don’t over spool the reel. Sometimes 2/3 or 3/4 is better than filling it 85-90 percent full 3. During the day light hours make a cast. Then peel off about a another half casts worth of lin...

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

I would imagine they do. And it is probably because of the plastic they use. My only concern would possibly be the 1/4 oz wanting to roll since it is lighter but I would be willing to bet it swims fine. I think the design on them was excellent.

Re: MB Dark Sleeper

Fished this bait a few days now. It has caught about 5-6 fish on it. Here are some thoughts: -eyes and finish are still intack 95% - only a small tear in the bait about 1/10 of an inch - casts well - the tail moves rapidly even at slower retrieve speeds - can be fished like a jig and craw or refugee...

Daiwa ITO Steez rendition!

Well after a bit of trial and error it finally appears to be done! This project started off when I sourced a few painted Steez side plates in ITO green from TT member Dan D. Thanks Dan! He couldn’t recall what Steez model they fit. Not knowing if it was the 7:1 or higher ratio or the 6:3 ratio I kne...
