Re: Steez ltd sv tw

That's the million dollar question right? Looks great of it holds up and does it even have a black t-wing? No. This finish will not hold unless it’s kept in the box. That’s certain. Yes; the t-wing is black. How do you know that the finish won't hold up? Took it out of the box. Admired it. Spooled ...

Re: Steez ltd sv tw

Seems to check all the boxes so far. Will report back after some use. Nice! Does the finish seem durable - will it hold up do you think? That's the million dollar question right?

Maybe it was lost in translation for me but any updates coming to the Racing Designs for 2021?
No; I did not see anything about those. Maybe an addition is still to be announced?

Re: Daiwa 2021 RODS

Anyone else excited or am I late to the party as always Don’t think you’re late. I saw the first videos on IG yesterday. The entire jdm steez line is getting ...

Wow, is that a channel cat? If so, that's a BIG one! =D> =D> =D> Yes. It’s probably only the second or third one I’ve hooked into of that size in about 13-15 years. Congratulations on the catch.

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

Seems like I run into at least one big cat swimbaiting at night this time of year. This will be the one for 2020. The take on a swimbait by a cat this size in the pitch black beats that of a bass in my book hands down.

Re: JDM tackle shop.

I wasn't aware they sold used rods. I went and found them.Thanks for that. I would like to pick up an EG Heracles Leopard for chatter bait fishing this spring. I really didn't want to pay for a new one.I've got about 7 pages of used and on-sale rods to look through now.Fingers crossed. I e mailed t...

Re: JDM tackle shop.

I’ve bought a number of things from him (Matt i believe is the name he uses), and always has been super positive. He went out of his way to find a couple things for me. When browsing; however, I noticed that he’s not been restocking used rods like he used to. This change kind of coincided with a he ...

Evergreen Cougar Elite 7 RS

So many intriguing rod drops by EG lately it’s hard to keep up. I’m still dreaming of rapid gunners and black roses, but have plenty of rods that fill those positions. This one however would actually fill a need. I have a prescription for something versatile, medium, and that should excel with trebl...

Re: Okay let's hear it.. Abu Garcia or Lew's?

Lew Childre to be exact. While I don’t disagree with you, Childre’s exploration of quality components in Japan and marrying the US/Japanese markets is actually quite an interesting history also. Thanks, I will read his story. I am biased by my Scandinavian heritage although Danes (me) and Swedes (A...

No comparison. Ever. One company has produced some of the most sought after reels in history. Several books have been written just about ABU reels. Lews who? Lew Childre to be exact.
