The retrieve on Steez Air not as smooth as CT.
I've noticed the same thing. Mine isn't close to the smoothness of the Steez CT, but it is still a load of fun to fish.
Huge weight difference, so material variations would account for a lot of the difference in feel.

Gear ratio increase

Has anyone found a gear set to increase the ratio in a 100 size Calcutta Conquest. Would like to bump up to in the 7s if possible. Thanks.

Re: Nrx 852c leader knot

If you want an even neater FG knot, look at a Rizutto finish. Does add another level of complexity to an already frustrating knot.tho.

New finesse reel

Not sure if it has been posted elsewhere on the forum. Japan Tackle has the new Alphas Air TW up for pre order. Seems to share spool type with the Steez. Would assume a couple of tweaks on the Steez tho.

Re: Show off your OG Zillion

On the JDM site, first number in the display reel looks like an 8. Given the price they sold for in Oz when first released, I dont think it was really a limited release. Serial number may mean a few things, such as batch number, country of distribution etc. When first released in Australia, they wer...

Re: 19' Steez Ct vs 20' Steez CT

Manufacturers and retailers probably just want to move older stock.

Re: My 2020 rod/reel arsenal - High end Shimano/Loomis

My counting could be wrong, but I think there is a rod without a partner. Next purchase?

Re: Uses for Copoly?

I use both mono and braid for squarebills and lipless cranks. It depends on the situation-braid around wood cover, mono around rocks. If the drag is set correctly, braid works better for lipless baits imo, especially out in deeper water. Braid also helps when ripping a bait free from grass to draw ...

Re: Budget Sweet Spot... Casting Reels

I like how poor people who can't afford high end gear always say ;"your 600$ rod won't catch you more fish than my 40$ ugly stick uhuhuhuhuh". But it does catch more fish.I can feel so many more bites that I couldnt detect when I was poor and fishing with cheap rods.You get what you pay for.A 600$ ...

Re: Snaps

Thanks for the info and recommendations. I understand the purpose of split rings allowing for more freedom, but wasn't sure if the shape, size, and added weight of a snap would hinder an already lightweight lure. For general bass fishing I was always somewhat discouraged from using snaps because of...

Re: Lower gear ratio for SS Air

Thanks again! going to let them know and see if they can get them ordered for me! Since I'm asking you so many questions do you have an opinion on the drag clicker mod? I like the drag clicker feature that comes stock on the Steez CT. It seems beneficial on a finesse reel with light line and low dr...
