Casting Rod: (Daiwa Zillion Rods) The Daiwa
Zillion rods are still fresh on our minds after winning an Editors Choice Award.
These rods are "Steez" rods for the rest of us. Offering much of the technology
and features of their significantly more expensive siblings, the Zillion rods are a
perfect match for the popular reel series bearing the same name.

rods, and so does Ms. Casey
It really wasn't all that long ago that anglers
dismissed rods from the top reel manufacturers, all that has changed now with

their own reels.
Daiwa's Zaion reel seat is both
lightweight and durable, not to mention it is sculpted to match the Zillion
The Zillion rods delivered when it came to just
about every performance metric and make a great rod choice for bass anglers.

inimitable about G.Loomis GLX graphite based rods, and whatever magic it is that
gives GLX that crisp ultra-refined feel, it has successfully been translated
into the GLX DSR. This rod retails for just over 350 dollars and is available at the G.Loomis Superstore at
