Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

Might it be around regular Alphas sized frame, modified to TWS & smaller spool? TWS takes more room, but I think this spool is narrower and that creates some of room for TWS, because line guide travel is decreased. Nice (in my opinion) that it seems not actually real spacers, there is some kind of ...

Re: Olympic Vigore

Awesome Rods. I can see a H model in my future. Nobody else is using some of these materials that go into these blanks yet.They look super impressive. Good luck getting a blank with T1100g and nanoplus for the price these are rolling out at anywhere else. Believe me I own almost all the brands using...

7’0mh poison ultima. I bought it for bottom contact, but I found the tip to just feel like it was never going to stop bending on hooksets. Its a fast taper and I’ll call it a Loomis 843 1/2, but would bend nearly in half on me. It’s also plenty sensitive, but I wasn’t landing all the fish I should h...

Re: STEEZING

I think that depends on the person, and what reel came up for sale at the time I was looking for each of mine. The last one I needed was my 100 SHL. I would have probably paid $300 +for the one I have now just because it was difficult for me to find a lefty in the 7.1 with the red accents as clean. ...

Re: G Loomis vs JDM

I own a rayz twitching model I got here from another member. Its a sweet little rod. It's heavier on paper than many others but none of those balance as well as this rod does with an air stream custom it's absolutely perfect.

Very awesome, bet that Ltd TN looks mighty fine on a Racing Design. Yikes!
It’s on one of my evergreen stallions right now, but if I end up buying the 701mh/hST model it will move to that rod.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

I really dig the limited in light blue and with the straight handle. Very nice line up. It makes me think of preparations for a trip or tx. Thanks. For some reason that’s the reel all my guests on my boat want to use. For people newer to casting it’s an easy reel to pick up and bomb with little fus...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Very sweet collection. Might be like picking a kid but what are your favorites and why? 8-) Thank You! My favorite is the 103 LTD TN. I love the super car color scheme, carbon handle, 8.1 gears, bass or die knobs. It’s an iconic reel and is easily recognizable unless mistaken for a tatula ct type r...
