I was going to get the new Steez SV TW or the Metanium Shallow Spool but even at the JDM price the Steez was pretty steep and I just ordered a Metanium 100. So for $50 less than the new Steez SV, I got the 21 shallow spool Steez Limited. I got the best of both reels and then some. It's crazy buttery smooth, like an Anteras but its probably half the weight.

That's the face I made when I opened the box. I had no idea it had metallic flake paint.  My wife saw it and said, "Well that one's pretty. ".

 

Here is the odds and ends of my order. I had to try the Drift Fry. The YGK OLLTOLOS braid is a new one to me. It might have been a mistake.  It's so slick, knots might be an issue.

Some more BFS stuff that I am stocking up on. Some 1/16 keitech tungsten jig heads in #2,#3 and 1/0 some easy shiner 3” in shad, electric bluegill, light hitch. Then some 2.8 fat impact in light hitch and some odd little googan tubes for crappie. 
 

I will say that it’s very alarming how much a lot of these plastics weigh when you break the scale out lol.

That thing is sweet...never noticed the black twing.  I've added it to my list.  I'm a sucker for anything limited 🤴

I took it out today for a test run and it's pretty amazing. Casting is effortless and its smoother than the regular Steez SV TW. The coolest thing is the shallow spool. It's just different but in a good way, just can't explain it yet. Only downside, I got skunked so no fish on it yet. I have it paired with an NRX+ 894C JWR and 40lb YGK OLLTOLOS braid.

Ned rig has been the ticket for me the past few years each winter, and after it being the only thing they'd seem to consistently hit this winter I finally decided to get a dedicated setup. After a lot of research I went with the NRX+ nrr.

I repurposed a Stella 1000 I had on my shakeyhead rod and the combo feels great (it better I suppose 😆)

I kept the monkey at bay for a couple months, but I'm a weak man.

Picked up a couple spools of line, and the new TB micro a-rig plus some 2.75 swammers. Also grabbed the Tatula to free up a Zillion for...

Whoa! Quick count ~ 35 of them.... That's what I call ALL IN.....

 

My blue bladed one we talked about in an earlier post should arrive early next week. Just in time for pre-spawn action down here. 3/20 is the full moon. I'm a bit giddy.

There's a few more on standby by as well.

Box only holds so many and each bait has a 'lifespan'. 

(the shorter for better). 

These baits are basically replacements for my SK Burner collection that are a few years old.  They served me well but between the brown bass & the pike,

I can only re-tune them so many times before I lose confidence

in their structural integrity.  So we went for a re-boot. 

I really like that they offer compact & a full frame size baits with 4/0 & 5/0 hook respectively.

These baits give me 'the feeling', which is almost always worth at least one over 6.

At least I'm not alone in this "feeling". Spinner baits are my addiction and these just have "it".

Magnum rage bugs, magnum uv speed worms, siebert shot caller swim jigs

 

If you buy a shot caller jig, be aware you are getting a jig with a lighter wire. 
 

P.S I bought some spinnerbaits recently too. Love to see A-Jay’s. He is more generous than I am these days in showing what spinnerbaits I’m buying.

Made my annual trip to Cabela's this morning to get angling and turkey hunting licenses, spool some reels, stock up on various tackle/line/hooks, and spend some gift cards.  Strike King and Sufix line are 25% off, and Yamamoto are 20% off.  I also got a new PFD that was 25% off and a Lew's Speed Rod/Reel BC combo for my Father that was $50 off (not pictured).

The rod/reel combo is a gift for my old man. He is too old and stubborn to buy new things at his age and his equipment is failing. So I figured a combo for a Fathers Day/Birthday would work.

A couple new rods, I got a decent deal on the zillion rod $266. Only time will tell if it is worth the difference compared to the tatula elite but for the price I figured that it was worth a shot.
