Thanks I’d rather have the larger spool , looks like I’ll go with the US model . Thanks :big grin:
I just noticed on the shimano japan site that the Conquest 100 has the same line capacity in meters as the 2020 Metanium that is "suppose" to be a 70. Maybe the new Met is a 100? Not sure lol.

Re: High end frog rod: heavy-ish surface veg

Just saw the STZ751MHHFB-AGS on the daiwa site pop-up, available in red only. Wondering how this rod feels. I haven't seen daiwa rate a rod power as MHH before either.... It feels amazing! I was actually throwing a paddle tail Keitech in the grass this weekend on that rod, along with 1/2 and 3/4 oz...

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

And not sure why they take an extra year to release the 7.1:1 gear ratios.... like they're doing with last year's Steez ct sv tw. Not releasing the popular high gear at the same time is the weirdest trend I've seen from Daiwa in a while.
Glad I'm passing on this one too.

Thank you. I can get the side plate off fine. It's the spool that won't come out.
The spool just needs a harder pull than usual, and it comes right out. I was wondering the same thing when i first got my bantams 2 summers ago. The spool isn't stuck, that's just how it was on both my bantams.

Thanks for the info all. Just grabbed a Chronarch G for brackish water. Only on TT can you get this kind of comparison info and so quickly :)

Re: Differences w/ Chronarch G vs MGL??

They cast pretty similar except the fact that the MGL spool is a few grams lighter so it can cast lighter lures. I have actually been very impressed with the MGL's finesse ability. The G has the same braking system and a slightly heavier spool, but that is mainly attributed to a metal considered mo...

Differences w/ Chronarch G vs MGL??

Does anyone own both Chronarch MGL and G? Does 1 cast better than the other? Any difference in spool weight or bearing type? Wondering what are the actual differences.... Shimano site says the G is saltwater safe, both weigh exactly the same, frame looks same except for color, etc etc. I own a chron...

Re: Antares 2019?

Weird with all of TB's shimano reels, they didnt do a side to side comparison with other reels.... I really wanted to get an idea of the size for this 70 sized antares. Their video was all about nothing lol

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Does someone mind explaining the spacers to me? Are the orange spacers attached solidly to the frame or they are sorta loose? And when you remove the new alpha spool, do the orange spacers fall out too?
I want 1 too but.... Thx in advance.

Re: Steez AGS casting rods

Owned the 7'1" MH X-fast. The rod was nice, but I returned it. It wasn't NRX or even close to GLX...honestly my Exprides were more sensitive. Great, great rod, but if you're getting it for bottom bouncing techniques just go with a Loomis or an Expride if you want to save some coin. Appreciate the h...
