Re: ICAST 2019

70 sized ct sv tw Zillion with brass gears and aluminium frame in ct Steez outlook would be great! That 30 mm deep spool is truly versatile with nowadays braided lines! The 30mm spool is the truth. I have no problem getting easy distance with the Steez CT. Isnt a long bomber like the 12 Antares but...

Re: Course of Action

I am going through GoPro customer service as we speak. Hero 5 Session been having tons of problems. They seemed nice and were helpful...so far. I dont judge until entire process is complete.

Glad you are being taken care of

Re: Course of Action

!!!!! Return label sent out and all I have to do is mail it off for a replacement.. The guy was kinda skeptical he said due to the uncommon complaint however he was very understanding that for the price of the lure. Return label was emailed and I didn't even have to wait for the arrival.. Was it th...

1. Receipt of Mission: V110 taking on water 2. Mission Analysis: V110 taking on water is affecting the action of the bait, ultimately costing you fish. Effectively is a paperweight or Christmas tree decoration. Thise things arent cheap either. 3. Course of action (COA) Development: In addtion to wha...

Re: nanofil upgrade

Gliss is a nice line. Color fades pretty quick. The line is really quiet coming through the guides. I used 2lb Nanofil on my Extreme BFS setup. No real problems except tying leader knots. The line can be difficult to get a leader knot to not slip. I now have been using 3lb Sufix Nanobraid. It been ...

Re: BFS Fluoro vs Braid Pros and Cons

For "braid", I was using 2lb Nanofil for a while. It casts nice, is strong and, served me well. I absolutely HATED tying leader knots in the field with it. I have switched to 3lb Sufix Nanobraid and it has been nice. Way easier to tie joining knots with. It takes a considerable amount of force to br...

Re: NRX 9th Year at ICast 2019 / Revamp?

What about using the same blank and using SS Sic or even Ti Sic guides? Would reduce costs. No tooling/engineering mandrels or any of that R&D. That would also save on costs.

Could do a new reel seat or whatever else floats peoples boats.

The 801/851c would be great!!!

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

There has been a lot of talk about how the Steez CT performs. The insides overall are pretty much the same as the Steez SV TW. Biggest change would be with the main gear. It has ridges in the inner rim of the main gear that a spring loaded pin rubs on to create the buzz sound when the drag pulls ou...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Has anyone tried their CT with heavier lures yet? My all-around pond hoping rod is a 783c and I have tried about 6 reels on it and never found “the one”. The issue I have is that about 1/3 of the time I am casting/pitching a weightless Trickworm (1/4oz) and for another 1/3 of the time I am casting/...

Some are saying they may all share a very similar, if not same spool. We will need to get our hands on the Millionaire spool to truly find out I guess.
