Re: Where to buy MB parts for Steez

So basically I’m better off selling my steez and adding money and finding a IS71 instead. That would probably work out cheaper than somehow finding the parts and paying for them. I’m still trying to find out what the differences are in specs when megabass release a reel compared to the Daiwa version...

Where to buy MB parts for Steez

Hey guys, Ive been trying to find out where I can buy a black Megabass thumb bar for my Daiwa Steez Sv 103XS but cant find one anywhere. I also want to replace the front end where it says "steez" with a plain one. I basically want it to look like the IS71. Also, can someone fill me in on the differe...

Re: Megabass F5-72X Daemos

I just had one come in yesterday , it’s balanced pretty well and it’s slightly stronger than the diablo. I like it enough I bought two lol Haha nice. I ended up ordering the daemos so when it comes in the mail I’ll compare the two as far as balance and looks but performance is have to wait until th...

Re: Megabass F5-72X Daemos

Hey guys, I own a orochi xx diablo spec-r and was wondering if it’s worth the upgrade to the daemos.
I love the versatility in the spec-r and I’m looking for the same thing in the daemos.
I know these 2 rods are similar but what’s the differences in the 2?

Re: megabass destroyer Daemos

Sorry to bring up an old thread but I own a 2018 xx diablo spec-r already but want to get the same versatile rod in the destroyer series so would the daemos be worth the upgrade or should I just stick with the diablo?

Re: Dobyns vs Megabass vs Shimano

Megabass diablo spec-r 2018 is incredible and extremely versatile. I’ve used it for almost every application without issues especially jigs and Texas rigged craws. I paired it up with a Daiwa Steez and the balance is perfect. I also started a thread trying to get help on buying my first megabass rod...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

Awesome guys thanks for all the helpful info. Got a lot to chose from. Since were talking about gears, I always wondered.....what does upgrading the reel handles actually do? Is it more for looks or does it perform any better? It can give you more "power" when using a longer handle Ahh I see Awesom...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

SV103 (non steez) in the 7:9:1 ratio or if a 6:3:1 is a good enough deal you can spend $30 and swap a faster set of gears into it. Built like a tank and balances out very well on the xx perfect pitch. I have no issues with casting distance using sv spools. I’m not sure why a lot of people think the...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

Thanks @poisonokie I’ll keep that in mind As far as Megabass reels go, your best bet is to find a used IP79. Nice condition ones go for quite a bit but, sometimes a deal is found. What would be a good price for one used? What’s their average price used? I found an ad from early november and the sell...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

Ok thank you LGmouth and hobie-wan! Ao the type r tatula is probably my best bank for buck for a frog reel. Can anybody put a list of megabass reels that would be great for frogging in case I change my mind and sell some older stuff? It’s dead winter where I’m at so no need to rush to get a reel, wa...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

Thanks guys! I seen a couple new tatula sv tws’s go for around $150 how are those? And would you guys use the tatula for the perfect pitch and leave my steez on the diablo spec-R? Would the steez be better for frogging or most of my other finessing applications? @lowrange it’s the 2nd Gen the 2018 v...

What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

Hey guys so I just picked up a megabass orochi xx perfect pitch and now need a reel for it. I own a orochi Diablo spec-r and ended up getting a steeze sv 103xs for it and the combo is fire but I’m hoping to not spend as much on another reel. Would that reel do better for frogging on the perfect pitc...
