Not unless you want to attempt to remove one from an existing Daiwa rod. Oh how I wish their was though!
Thanks
I think about buying a broken one but it’s hard to come across them as well

Reel Seat question

Wanted to know if there’s an air beam reel seat
For custom rods. I was wanting to have a rod built with the same reel seat that’s on my Daiwa frog rod but I wasn’t sure if it’s even possible

Lauda Reels from MB

Not alot of information on these things.. I seen the one with the yellow thumb bar and looks pretty neat but than I ran across the 72 limited and it looks just as good. Problem is I can't find prices of the old ones to know if its worth getting the ones I see listed for sale. Were these reels better...

Re: Evergreen Top 5 Jig rods ?

If you need anymore information on it let me know, I have a IP79L on mine, it balances out really well. Wow That answer all my questions I was thinking about the lightness of the rod and how it’s probably best suited for a Steez reel. On my two bc rods I have IS73 and IS79 and on my racing design t...

I still think you should consider the Racing Design.
man that stick is lovely, the pictures really bring that out but the bend as illustrated in the photo seems to be more to MY liking as
they say "a picture speaks volumes"!
Definitely still considering after seeing the picture. Thanks !

Re: Evergreen Top 5 Jig rods ?

Black Raven Extreme RS . My time is limited with this rod as I have not had it long. Incredibly sensitive and the rod is "smooth." Crisp, fast taper. And yes, the sensitivity is on par or maybe better than an NRX. Black Racer. Extra fast rod, really sensitive. Better choice for finesse jigs up to 3...

Steez A vs Zillion tw vs Morethan PE 1000 tws

Anyone have all three? I wanted to know how smooth the Morethan was and is it the better buy since the USDM zillion has a brass gear and not made in Japan and the JDM version has a aluminum gear ? I’m interested in casting comparisons as well ? Personally I’m looking for a new frogging reel and was ...

Evergreen Top 5 Jig rods ?

Just a bit curious about this as I went out today with my Steez bottom contact rod which I really enjoyed today. I started to think of maybe regrouping and getting the Jigga stick as I lost out on a deal in the past. Still the jigga stick was popular however some point I know felt it wasn’t a tradit...

Shift from Jigs to creature setup

Are your jig setup the same as your creature bait setup?
If so where do you differ ( rod , reel, line etc) ?

Medium Light heavy C Rig

Using 12lb floro 3/8 Oz 7’6” heavy rod has been phenomenal for C Rigs I’m not sure why and one may think that I’m snapping line but the drag is set to avoid that plus the hook is sharper than sharp. Deep or shallow current or not. Anyone else doing this ? How has it been for you? I’m using flirts an...

Re: Broke my beloved K2, Now what?

So I stepped on my custom K2 683ml. My favorite rod I've ever had, been with me a long time, and has caught a pile of fish. Looking at potential replacements, and wanted to hear some thoughts. I might replace it with the production model, even though I'm not real keen on the build. Here's a few sti...
