I've been thinking about getting one of the new JDM Steez Real Control 6'8" spinning rods.  I love the RAID Japan spinning rods I have BUT I from a 17' tin rig and I generally fish jigs in the winter and plastics in the other 3 seasons.  I figured I would wait a few days and think it over.  Well, when I went to order it this morning ...

Hmm… that is not what I would call a dodged bullet, but rather shooting yourself in the foot. You clearly want it, or you would not have gone back to buy it. And now you have us wanting photos and review? Nobody wins. Time for an all-out search for that stick. Full report, please. THANK you…

I think I got spooked by a bad review, too.  That's what had me gunshy to begin with.  I think I read something about the rod being overly stiff.

I'll do my best!  If I'm fortunate, I'll find a poor house next to a lake! 🤣

I was on the fence about a rod too good to be true and it was relatively inexpensive and I played around and someone got this one of one.. hurt me til this day but I find solace in knowing that i need to stay off those sights and enjoy what I have but there are still some of those last year list rods I need to get..

I bought a Steez Stratofortress, another stick I'd been eyeing for a while instead.  Crawlers, swimbaits, jigs, 6'8" heavy.  Hopefully, it arrives soon ...

Stratofortress arrived today, the once over looks good but will take a detailed look tomorrow and get to fish it next week.
