I would have to say the TD1Hi and Pi. There was also a large capacity spool version as well. The immediate predecessor to the Steez was the Battler in Japan.

I think the TD-Z, X, and S were introduced around the same time.

No, the TDX HIA was introduced around 1997-1998 while the TD-Z came in around 1999-2000.

Before Steez rod line-up, IMO for US models, the Heartland Z's were the highest end.

I hear ya man...

BTW, still kicking myself in the rear for not ordering more than one of the Heartland Z solid core tip spinning rods. They were just great light power rods and now impossible to score!
