Re: Steez Gear Mods

I used the brass 6.3 gear set out of a sv103. I put them in my Steez SV 103. Worked like a charm. You will need the drag stack to. They are different sizes. Correct, the 1st gen Steez SV reels are the same frame as the original Steez SH reels, as are the TN and LTD versions. But wouldn't that mean ...

Re: New Saint overpriced or not?

Same with gloves, unfortunately. Too bad the blanks aren't available. I've always preferred customs, anyway.

Re: New Saint overpriced or not?

Man, if it didn't have that SK reel seat, I'd be on it. That reel seat makes my hand cramp after about 30 minutes. It always feels like its gonna fall out of my hand, so I squeeze harder on it.

Re: Daiwa Alphas Air TW 2020

I was waiting to how long it would take for someone to discover this. Plenty of bfs reels available. I certainly hope Daiwa releases a non bfs version of this reel. Same here. I didn't like the look much, but, like you, the specs have me interested in a non-bfs version. I don't know Tim. Are you su...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Yes, we have some high mountain lakes in N. GA. Some even have trophy brown trout. Burton, Blue Ridge, Nottely, Chatuge, Tugaloo, Raybun, Conasauga, Yonah, Talullah Falls are all way up in the mountains. I thought that you had some high elevation lakes. I bet they are beautiful, like Lake Ouachita ...

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

Yes I would guess she had already spawned. Though in FL some fish will still spawn into April. They start early in November but most of the spawning is in Jan/Feb. We had fish spawning on the 4th of July on my home lake (DVL) about a decade ago. It has a quarry that is almost 300 feet deep. A few d...

In front of the label area of the blank, unless the label is too long. I usually position it on the left side or bottom of the blank. If the blank has a thinner diameter, I'll place it a little closer to the reel.
Same here, but always on bottom. It catches the line if I put it to either side.

Re: Ice out bass

I'm happy. Ice out on my ponds already. Went out Tuesday and Wednesday. I did try lipless, football jig, jerkbaits, ned rig. Nothing. No bite. I fished shallow, deep, really slow. Water is stained, but not muddy. Ponds look dead. Didn't see any baitfish. What do you guys think how long it will take...

Re: Daiwa Tatula SV TW

In theory, it should cast better, because the new Tat SV has a 32mm spool. The 1st gen Tat SV is 33mm.

Re: Enough with the tackle. LETS SEE SOME FISH!

How’s this for some dock fishing fun? Watched this redfish shoot out from under a dock and crush my jerkbait, and the battle was on! 842c Conquest/Stile SS got the job done with some heavy drag and all out tug of war. Always nice to put the gear up to a strong test. He got really close to the dock ...

Re: Steez A vs Shimano Bantam

I had both, but used them for smaller Salmon species up to 12-13lbs using higher resistance lures, both were high speed ratio. to make a long story shorter I ordered both and fished them on the same rod with everything else identical, I still have the Steez A and returned the Bantam, the Steez was ...

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

no i get the price difference but threw the glx out there since it's a benchmark and i've fished it before. never handled imx so no clue The GLX is noticeably more sensitive than the Extreme. Ironically enough, the 1st gen Extreme is/was the most sensitive of the 3 generations of that series, in my...
