Steez 103HA vs. Core 50MG7

Recommended Posts

Have a chance to get a steez for a good price, but I was wondering if I should keep it or sell for a Core.  This is my first venture into the high-end reel arena.  Up to this point I have been using curados and citicas almost exclusively.  I guess this is why I am considering the core also.

What are your thoughts on these reels?  How do they compare to each other?  I will be using it for fishing texas rigged plastics (normally 1/4oz tungsten) with 15lb fluorocarbon.  Any feedback is greatly appreciated.

This is my take...

The Steez feels a little larger in hand, a little smoother and a little more refined.

I use the Steez for cranks and the Core for most everything else so I can't compare apples to apples...however with the Steez I can cast cranks further than any other reel I have used for cranking.

They do cast quite a bit different to me so if I have been using my Shimanos for a while and then pick up the Steez it sometimes takes a few casts to get used to it. May not make a difference for pitching though.

They are both excellent reels and you can't go wrong with either in my opinion.

If I were in your shoes it would probably depend on how good the price for the Steez is

hope this helps

I have mainly been using the Curado 200E7 and the Citica 200E so whatever breaks they have is what I am used to.  Thats not to say I prefer that type of breaking system, I am simply accustomed to it.

I got to take my new core 50mg out for the first time this weekend and was shocked at how well it casted. It will launch a 5" weightless senko a mile and half. I haven't caught anything on it yet, so I don't know how it handles a fish, but I'm sure it will preform just fine.  I have never fished with a steez so I can't coment on that reel.

The transition from those two reels to the Core 50 is painless.  I own three Curados, three Citicas and one Core 50.  Only difference between them is that as the price goes up, they get more smooth and free.
