Re: Steez CT SV 70 vs Alphas CT SV 70

I can confirm Jkitchens' comment, since I own both as well.

If you look purely at performance, the Alpha is the better buy. If you want the ultimate in smoothness the Steez is great It also offers a bit faster gear ratio, I have not felt a big of a difference here though...

Re: Better than the average travel rod?

I have two of the Daiwa BBB. One casting one spinning, that are always with me in the car. The fact that you can fully collapse them, make them SO much more practical in my opinion. You can put them in the luggage with the reel attached, add them on the side of your hiking backpack and just store t...

Re: Alphas CT SV

Have a look at the new Daiwa Coastal SV TW. I can cast light lures, it has good line capacity and is smooth.

Cheers!

Re: Steez racing Design 7011HRB

the monkey bit me today. Ordered the Steez AGS 7'9'' XH for 377 USD shipped. Could not pass on this.. Hopefully should do what I am looking for, the Racing Design at double the price was just too expensive for the little gain on performance. How has the rod been? I've been rereading this post a lit...

Re: Most forgiving baitcaster

My Daiwa Steez A and the SV spool from the Daiwa SV103.

No idea why, but I can put the breaks on '2' and cast into the wind with a 1/4oz lure and i am not getting a hint of a backlash. Spool tension is normal.

Re: Tatula Elite vs Steez A

I am super impressed with my Daiwa Coastal SV TW as well so far! Smootheness is def on the same level as my Steez A and Steez SV TW. Of course the later are already a couple of years old. So one would need to see how the new Tatula's behave over time. Looking forward to get my other Tatulas now and ...

Re: Tatula Elite vs '20 tatula sv

ALF got me as well. Elite feels super solid. SV TW less so; if I keep it, it's getting knobs and a drag star stat. Dang, maybe I should have bought two elites. I figured the sv would be easier or more forgiving for my son though. Yeah, now I am wondering as well. I heard that the Elite was the high...

Re: Tatula Elite vs '20 tatula sv

WHo would you recommend to buy the Elite, who to buy the 20 Tatula SV? Thanks guys. I just bought one of each. (American legacy had a 20% off daiwa sale) Won't be able to fish until they open the lakes in my area though. There was a poll on the daiwa buy sell trade page on Facebook and last I looke...

Re: daiwa morethan 19

I have one spooled with 16# FC and the other with 20#. The Steez A sools hold enough line to bomb cast 16 # and enough to make far enough casts with 20#.

Re: daiwa morethan 19

I have 2 19' Morethans. In both I am running the spools from the Steez A.

The standard spool is ok if one puts braid (up to 40 #) or does not need a lot of line (i.e. if this is used for pitching g etc).
