Customer Reviews

Comments: put my steez reel on this rod and got a 5lber first cast ,after about 10 min you will realize you can tell every move your crankbait is making ,unreal sensitivity and feel ,if this rod was $700 it would still be worth it ,i am gettin another just incase.

From: Tony: Windy City

Comments: Just picked up the STZ 701MRBA-FL today. Holding the rod my hand, I already know I have something great from Daiwa. I also just bought a Steez 103HA and together and the set-up weighs like a feather! the flexibility of this rod is perfect for crank baits and jerk baits.  Can't wait for the ice to melt so I can load up some Sunline reaction FC and try this rod out!

From: Mark: Champlin, MN

Comments: I have the 7'M and 7'2" MH and both rods are amazing to use. You dont need flurocarbon to feel every bump like most rods. This is perfection. You will win your money back that you invest in this rod, if your a tournament fisherman. You will catch those fish that you didnt feel before...........

From: Jordan: Marshall, NC

Comments:Steven is right, I have the ML 65 paired with a Steez and I can fling a 1/4 lure a mile.

Comments:Steez FleXLite Cast Rod 7' Medium is just an amazing rod as one would expect from Daiwa. When paired up with a Steez reel (I use the 100SHA) it is amazing and will cast a mile! You can feel every bump and tick at the line when using Sunline FC Sniper. I highly reccomend this rod!
