Re: 2016 New Steez?

Went to the Chicagoland Fishing Expo yesterday. Daiwa had a nice setup but neither the Zillion TW SV nor the Steen TW SV was there. I was looking forward to getting some hands on experience. Maybe they will be at the Madison show at the end of Feb. If you were still in the USMC you would probably b...

Re: Upgrades for the new Fuego

It does boil down to a Tatula without the Twing. Cosmetic upgrades are far more plentiful than performance.

Re: Daiwa tdz with sv spool

I think the SV spool in a TD-Z is wonderful. Especially for chucking and winding. I won't give up my R+ spool by any means. But this it's a user friendly spool for sure.

Re: Daiwa Global

Reps at the Chicagoland Expo weren't incredibly knowledgable on the topic. They said it's basically just a central hub in which you can reach all their pages from. What I don't like is that when you go to say, North America, it pulls up a quasi-facebook style page. If you don't know your way around ...

Re: Auction site gems

Just paid for this beauty! :big grin: Little scuff on her nose, but she wasn't going to be a shelf queen anyway. I have been wanting one for a long time and couldn't resist. Getting a little cabin fever. http://www.ebay.com/itm/151967552125 Excellent pick up. Congrats! One of my all time favorite r...

Re: Reel Rescue: IS Edition

Nice find, no guilty conscience to worry about. And in all reality, not the worst shape I've ever seen a reel in.

Re: Daiwa Global

I'm likely going to an expo in Illinois the end of next week. Maybe I can glean some info as well.

Re: Dobyns light jig, finesse plastics rod

I have the DX 743HP (casting). Dobyns increased the power in the upper third of the blank on this series so with that said, the 742 would be the better choice in that weight rage and bait selection. I agree. The DX743C HP is more powerful than the previous DX743C. I'm going to be getting a DX742C H...

Re: Megabass XX Jerkbait Special

I've also been looking into this rod and wondering about its action. Currently fish those same baits on my flat side special just fine but would like something a little bit shorter.

So much new Daiwa! I'm going to miss releases just based on the sheer volume of them.

Re: New Steez TWS

i guess i'm in the minority...can't wait to get my hands on one I'm with you. A t wing sv spool under 6 oz is a no brainer for me. I got a 2015 zbone that it would look awesome on There is already an SV reel with the T Wing, T3 SV. It might weigh a little more but you gain the 3D braking system. Ma...
