What do you throw with this combo? I've got the same rod. I even had the same reel paired up with my 754c Xtasy at the end of last year but I switched from a tat sv 8:1 to a metanium 8:5 for throwing jigs this year. I love both combos. Skipping was easier with the tat but I love the metanium for palming on the retrieve.

I spent this weekend throwing jigs with it and it was great!

Are the cork handle from an Abu reel?  If so then they have larger knob diameters than Daiwa/Shimano.  I don't know what size shafts the Kawa handle has.  I am going to remove my Kawa knobs from the handle and fit them to a Daiwa style carbon handle at some point.

 

If the Kawa handle won't take Abu knobs then you can get a Ray's Studio DIY carbon handle for $30 off Aliexpress.  They come in an Abu knob shaft version.  

Got my Rays Studio handle today, ordered on the 3rd when you posted this. Perfect. The number of mm’s can be deceiving. Some 105mm handles are nearly identical to 90mm handles, because of the location of the knob posts. It was packaged nicely and is exactly what I needed. Stock knobs fit perfect. Thanks 👍

Sometimes the seller measures the entire length of the handle from end to end.

The correct measurement should be from center post to center post.

I have asked them before how they measure the handle if I'm not certain.

The handles from Rays studios are usually really good. They measure theirs the correct way.

The Kawa handles are pretty decent too. And they take daiwa knobs.

Curado dc high speed, right handed, used a half a season and it works great just not a fan and find it kind of limiting willing to trade for older high end Daiwa reels and Megabass rods

Megabass Evoluzion F1 1/2 X63 Ti Espada.  It's a 6'3" "slow" or moderate action light powered casting rod.

Huh, there is a current JDM Destroyer rod like that I think.  Is it meant for topwaters?

It could be used for that.  I think it is for the baby versions of the Megbass hardbaits.

Ah.  I love the idea of tiny hardbaits but trebles and light line is like playing roulette on a wheel with six zeros.

I think they just make the number up. It’s not just the Ali Express ones, it also happens with brand names, like Abu, Shimano and Daiwa.

Just finished this guy last night.  Boca Lightning bearings, Carbontex drag, 6.3:1 gears, Gator Grip handle, and a new clutch washer to accommodate a pair of CS Rocket brake blocks.  Built for throwing light stuff on a budget.

I like the 2500SHG Vanquish enough that I ordered a second one, this time in the compact c2000SHG, to go on a Megabass Addermine that is destined for Ned Rig and weightless Wacky duty.

2019 Megabass Levante Jerkbait Special paired with a Daiwa SV103H.  Matches perfectly.

That’s a thing of beauty right there. I really want to try out one of the new levante rods. Unfortunately I’m afraid most of them are a little to long for most of the banks I fish.

Thanks I’ll have to look into that.
