Re: Steez Racing Design 701MH / HXB-ST

From what I’m reading there are two Texas rig special rods One with a solid tip and the other without as pointed out by the designators HXB-ST and HFB respectively. All rods over 7’ will be two pieces Doesn’t someone here already have the jigga stick? Been doing some reading as I’m gearing up to se...

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.

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

Re: We really not gonna talk about the new 2020 Ultima 172H “full carbon triangle grip”?

Saw the release dates yesterday for those models without any other info or pics and wondered why they were announcing release of existing models. Then I wondered if it could be a new gen. Guess so. I buy into the possibilities of additional feel and lower likelihood of accidentally launching the rod...

Re: Kistler 2020 prices up!

Kistler has been offering legitimate savings during their sales. I know; unpredictable and will be a long wait until next Black Friday. But, if you can wait until that certain one or hit at the right timing, you can get a great deal. Otherwise; price is high in my opinion for modest builds (with top...

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

How’s the power/action compare on the 904C vs 172H? I’ve looked at that Ultima so many times since it came out but just feel like it’s going to end up being more medium-heavy than I’m hoping for in a heavy cover rod. I’m also surprised by the Adrena vs Glorious feedback since the Glorious is clearl...

Re: JDM Shimano vs USDM Gloomis Comparisons

I have a conquest 904c and an ultima 172h. I’d say they’re pretty close in sensitivity; maybe slight nod to the ultima. But not a massive difference in my hands. I will also say that I’ve been sort of surprised by how much is said about new model adrena sensitivity. I bought the 172h from Japan befo...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

That was fast. You must have pulled the trigger the 1st day it hit JLS. So it doesn't feel choked off, or underwhelming on the cast... Unlike the SV103 kinda did? Can you post some closer shots of the engine and cast cap plates pretty please? [/quote] My jerkbait game has been strong with this one t...

New offering from DRT for 2019-2020. The Artex R2. http://kuroisakana.blogspot.com/?m=1 i would love to be able to try one of these sabres one day. But alas. Priced very reasonably at 72k yen, supply and demand takes it out of my reach. These must of just been released and already someone put one up...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

Nothing unexpected with the 10. It casts for you. Of the SVs I've fished, maybe the most impossible for me to backlash when casting as hard as I can directly into wind. It still amazes me after all these years how easy it is to cast for distance directly into 15 mph wind. It does not feel 'torquy' ...
