Re: How do you rate these TDZ/Steez/IS spools

Ian Shields is a pure artist. Amazing performance improvements with the steez/is platform or any reel for that matter. Every reel I’ve owned, new or used, I’ve sent to Ian. Great communicator, honest, does not cut corners.

Re: Rods You Have Aquired For 2019

Made early and firm New Years resolution to thin the herd. Cull to only favorites and maybe 1 backup. Read on TT about Kistler sale. Have multiple nrx, jdm, St Croix extremes, but no kistler.
