Definitely not. Usually have to stick with one manufacturer. Sweet Limited by the way!
Right on!

Re: IXA and ZPI parts, do the colors match?

In my personal opinion no. ZPI is a darker blue. Here’s a pic of 2 side by side. The further away from the pictures the easier it is to notice.

Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

I’m expecting a racy package on my doorstep this week :whistle: Damn! Right on! That was quick. I didn’t even try to fight it with this one; I was powerless under its spell. He who rules the heavens; the one they call Matt, did the rest. Hahaha. I don’t blame you. I figured our far east connection ...

Re: Evergreen Rapid Gunner RSR

Nice taper! As the load increases, does the blank progressively bend toward the butt section or does it shut off at a certain point? The bottom pic represents a deep hookset with a good amount of force on the end. That’s about as much as it will go. It doesn’t really get past a fast taper, and with...

That Z 2020 is on absolute fire.
Thanks! It’s a fun reel. I always wanted a black limited but people complained about the paint so I’ve held off but wanted a Z. I love high speed reels and this one is just different looking.

Dom - What's the PG spool like in the new Zillion?
It’s great in that reel. I was skipping a Texas rigged worm with it and it felt very loose but no backlash with no thumb. Definitely an excellent match for one another.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

So much eye candy there Dom! That Deps caused a double take. I’ve thought about that one for a while; that combo is straight dope. But as per usual good stuff all around Right on! You know that Deps got hated on right out of the gate for the two different color reds. In person I like it a lot more....
