Re: Daiwa JDM SV Light LTD vs Shimano Aldebaran GGL50 for finesse baitcaster

Never fished an Alde, but I live my SV Light. You can use any of the Air spools with it. It's perfect for 8-10# test. And, bonus, it comes with a CV-S reel cover. I use mine for bottom contact on a 6'8" ML bfs rod. It's great for skipping, pitching, and casting for accuracy or into a headwind, but i...

Re: Never thought it would happen to me

I use 8# fluoro on my SV Light, so I've never had it happen, but it did happen with the 4# fluoro on my ASC the other day. Didn't seem to hurt anything, and that's after every cast since 2018. I'll probably respool with the recommended 6# next time, though. I have 8# braid on my Alphas Air and never...

Re: Majorcraft msx

I have every one of the casting models besides the 76BB and, well, that should speak for itself. I do everything from 1/32 crappie jigs to 3oz swimbaits. Excellent rods. The only issue I've had is the foam grip came loose on my frog rod and I had to super glue the ends down to keep it from spinning ...

Hey how do those SLP grips feel? Are they hard or soft?
They're hard like any other I knob, but they have a glossy surface that feels grippier to me. Haven't fished them yet, though.

Thanks eveyone for your input. I pulled the trigger on the Daiwa Catalina. I'm not sure if it has brass gears, but I couldn't pass up on the price.
I hate to point this out now, but that is literally the original Tatula frame.

Re: Daiwa Steez Air 2020

I love BFS fishing and in case of moment of inertia of spool can be reduced, it makes BFS fishing even more enjoyable. If momentum of inertia is small, lighter rod can be used. And casting control is better because smaller amount of magnetic brake is enough to control spool. Small diameter of spool...

Re: Sensitive Moving Bait Rods

Are not top water lures moving baits? Where do you stand in terms of buying the most sensitive rod since not much sensitivity is needed as opposed to the ability of the rod to impart action on the lure with little to no effort, to cast accurately ( taking length into account of course) and the abil...

I'd really like to hear what the haters actually want out of daiwa ? :-k
It seems we have some keyboard commando engineers among us...
Oh, come on, there are endless threads about what we want from Daiwa. Here's one that comes up constantly: Z1016

Gary you are really tempting me with AGS Steez rods and my interest has also turned to the Black Labels 8-)
Me too, I really want one of those to go with my future Zillion 10.

Just busting balls I agree with your sensibilities.

Re: Top Water rod for 1ozers

Well I suppose Poisonokie some can adapt better than others and make a rod do what it needs to do relative to the situation imparting action and all :-k I see what you're saying, glass is a lot of fun and really effective for trebles, and like I said before, I like it for things like i-Louds, Pompa...
