Re: Designo leben and vantage

I have a Leggera....DL7- C611HRS4 Performance...that is now a two piece. Since breaking the rod, I‘ve spoken with Yuki Kamiya about the design of the rod. According to him...It wasn’t built to be durable. In his words...it’s built like a F1 car. Light, accurate, hence “racing design”....So, from wh...

Re: Designo leben and vantage

I got the Leben Torque Tune DLT-C71H + R2 and the DL-C71MH + RST2S rods. Will have to post pictures later. Yes by far the most comfortable gripping rods ive ever held. And with a TDZ it feels like it was all perfectly fitted to my hands! They are understated as you said but the attention to detail ...

Re: Designo leben and vantage

Congrats! Beautiful additions, Polkfish. I know you paid a pretty penny for the Vantage. 😉 The level 6 blanks (DG6, DV6, etc.) are very, very nice indeed. Just wait until you try level 7.....🤯 Despite a horrific event, recently... I have a few more coming myself. They are addicting.

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

Well the advice on this thread is what made me pull the trigger and it was exactly as I was expecting and hoping! It is what I was hoping my PIII Bearing Down would be but that rod was a little too stiff and didn't cast like I hoped. But this is perfect! It's like you guys said, similar to the Jave...

Re: Need help on RC002 spools

There are color variances in the RC 002S Ltd (and a couple of others). I own the complete set and then some, along with 8 BEs and 5 of the 002 Ltds. I have one that looks almost like a true black metallic, ranging to lighter charcoal, and almost silver ones. Winner’s Black was not made in a 002, onl...

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

Still speculation at this point but have been asking around. They aren’t going to leave the already-existing Efreet as their flagship and with the Oltre completely removed/scrubbed from the Luxxe website now, I feel like it can’t be long before they make an announcement. The verbiage I’ve also seen...

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

I had to do it. Just got my 701MH/HXB-ST. Even though this is my 5th RD it's impressive. Definitely has some added sensitivity compared to the other 7' models and even compared to the 641 SMT although different feeling. It is slightly more clear than the others almost like they turned the bass down...

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

Congrats on the new stick, Dom. So you are saying the 701MH/HXB-ST is more sensitive than the one piece blank of the RD 701MH/HFB ? That’s quite surprising as solid tip designs (aside from the Oltres which are different animals IMO) are usually less sensitive by nature (being its two pieces vs. one...

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

All this talk of torque tunes is driving me crazy. I finally found a DLT-C71H+R2S I’ve been looking for. When I started my hunt, I had not realized these were discontinued. I’m always a day late...Anyway, I’m excited about seeing what these are all about. I’ve never fished a designo of any flavor. ...
