Re: Steez CT TWS and Antares 70

What rod(s) have you used with the A-70? That would be an interesting side-by-side duel between these two reels. I have it on a poison Adrena 6’11” med plus rod I had a less time today but managed an hour casting and dialing it in It can cast a weightless fluke further then I’ve ever seen with less...

Re: EDGE RODS by Gary Loomis?

Thanks for the review. I have a first strike spinning model and it doesn’t feel very balanced. 200 is a hell of a deal. I caught one of their “sales” but paid quite a bit more than that for my BW. My black widow is still “processing” I am anxiously awaiting it for this season! ...you wont be gettin...

Re: —Daiwa Catalina TW 4.9:1–

Was talking with a buddy regarding the Catalina's line capacity. Decided to do the math but it doesn't add up in my opinion. Seem to not hold a lot of 20lb sniper. Tackle trap claims 140yds of 50lb braid. I used the info of basic PowerPro, 50lb has a diameter of 0.36mm. Pretty close to that of 20lb...

Re: Your favorite obscure reels

The original gold BPS Pro Lite Finesse were nice reels. Similar to an Alpahas. Light, cast well, easy to palm. Other than most of the things that I have used that stood out were for a reason and not something that was under the radar Along the same lines I am impressed with my older gold colored Ca...

Re: —Daiwa Catalina TW 4.9:1–

my only question is will the SV spool from a zillion TWS swap onto a catalina? The Zillion SV TW (34mml will not fit. The Catalina will accept any 1516 sized Zillion TWS. The 1516 is the platform the original TWS Zillion is. I have fit the 1516 stock spool as well as a Ray's DIY spool, both fit per...

Re: Disappointed

I haven't used that model. I have a couple customs on the Legend Elite blanks. 7ft Lite and 76 Med-Heavy Mod Fast. Both are pretty decent vlanks and I have no problem detecting bites. Tapers are nice too.

I'm not sure any reels in existence have flown under the radar on this particular forum.
Probably true. There are a lot of "A Shimano what" or "Daiwa made what" type reels. Like I been eyeing up a Daiwa HRF Sonic Speed as a flipping reel candidate.

Re: Your favorite obscure reels

Shimano Stile 100XG

8.1, slightly smaller than the current Aldebaran, sweet cosmetics, shallow spool...perfect for short range 14lb FC like the T rigs.

Re: Blank recommendation.

I'm looking for a casting blank similar to the loomis 854 in power. I will throw everything on these 3/8-1/2oz. spinnerbaits, jigs, bladed jigs, traps, squarebills, 190 ploppers, texas rigs, swimbaits, burner worms etc.. I had 3- 736mb X-Rays built and I'd like more rod power. Thanks, Brian. IDK ho...

Wonder what will replace the Zillion rods? For between the 200 to 500+ range.

Re: Looking for a fish finder for my new 2019 Hobie PA14

I ran a Humminbird 899 on my PA12. 8in wasnt too bad on the Hobie. If yours cane with the flat platform that goes on the H-Bar, you can use a C-Clamp or other means to attach it. Really secure. I do that on my PA17. I did some easy modifications to make it work as cheap as possible. I used PVC to at...

Re: Steez Bottom Contact & Shimano Poison Adrena

Jig guys beware, this bottom contact rod is serious!! What size jigs? I was really eyeing up a Racing Design but, didnt offer a long enough rod for my liking for jigs. I like the specs on the new rod. I've fished everything from 1/4 oz swim jigs in heavy grass up to 1 oz FB jigs in open water. The ...
