Re: New Daiwa reel?

I’m pretty sure the corporate Daiwa reps sport Tatula tribal spider tramp stamps at this point. :clown:

Re: Evergreen Black Raven Extreme

The technology put into this rod is pretty awesome. I thought the little history lesson they put in there was pretty cool also. https://translate.googleusercontent.com/translate_c?depth=1&nv=1&pto=aue&rurl=translate.google.com&sl=ja&sp=nmt4&tl=en&u=https://www.evergreen-fishing.com/news_html/inspira...

what are the best sites for this rod?
You’re going to have to go through a sniper if you want one. None of the sites that have them ship to the US.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Heck of a deal man. I just saw a set of those knobs two days ago. Nice! They’re getting harder to find. I only have two sets and they ride these two cousins. 53FE1734-D9DA-41BD-BF77-6491DC0AE88B.jpeg Nice! Curious how the 1516 spool runs in HLC 1516? I didn't have a good luck with running a 100 spo...

Re: Daiwa racing designe .

For me... it depends on the conditions you fish and style. I’m 95% of the time fishing in current with lots of junk around, rip rap, logs, hyacinth close by, grass, weeds,trees, tulles, and anything else you can think of. I also prefer to fish heavier powered rods for jigs. In those conditions I pic...

Re: Need help on RC002 spools

There are some of them from one display case. The rest are spread out throughout the other cases/installed in other reels. You can see the RS 002 Ltd on the right, in front, and tell how dark it is. Almost black. The others get lighter as you go back from the front. The one that is installed in my ...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Here’s one of my recent auction victories/ steal. I’ve never seen this stock SLP works limited Zillion 1516 called the “Next Dream” posted on this site or anyone with this spool. I won the reel just for the spool but pretty much got everything else for free. That’s how good of a deal it was. I’m co...

Re: What rods should I look for?

So many awesome pro shops in Japan. I'd be more interested in some of the awesome baits you can find personally. Much easier to bring back in your checked luggage. As for rods there are a ton of rods. The best part is you will be able to handle quite a few that people who don't get to travel there ...

Re: Confirmed new Nrx coming out !!

If they’re using recoils again it would probably be for sensitivity reasons. People complained too much about the conquests being not as sensitive as the NRX even though the conquests are superior rods in nearly every way. Only thing lacking from the conquest series were some JWR tapers in my opinio...
