Re: What's next for Daiwa...

It's been 12 years since ChuckE wrote his comments and we're still discussing how the mag brakes work. I just turned 70 and I've have a life experience to share, If it ain't broke don't fix it. I still love Daiwa!

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I like Daiwa, I'm not changing my mine because someone says they're old school. Glad he has some technical info to support his statements, but I like Daiwa. Like my Father's family arguments on Ford vs. Chevy, no one ever won, because they were both good cars.

Re: Comparing Original Steez to Metanium MGL, etc

thanks, yeah I've got 3 OG Steez - two are 6.3's, 1 is 7.1. I could drop a gear upgrade in the two 6.3's for $100 and be done - one each for the 893, 894, and 873 I've got coming. Plus I've got two Alphas SV's as well so I have a few options for 6oz reels. For all I know the J Dreams/SV105's may ba...

Re: Sunline Xplasma Asegai

I have a Presso casting rod and reel that I tried 12# SX1 and it casted just OK casting 1/16 oz.Rapala, so decided to try 8# test. So I bought some 8# Xplasma Asegai. This stuff is really small, sewing thread small, a little hard to tie knots. Looks like green silt on the reel. It really performs, i...

Re: What spool ?

I have an Alpha Type R spool in my Sol. Best 1/4 oz Pop R spool I've found. I got a SV spool for the Sol to try but liked the Type R spool better.

Re: Break offs

If you backlash and pull the line hard to get it out, you cause the line to kink where it pull into a tight v. Not good for fluoro, that's where it's breaking.

Re: Should I get 872s or 902s NRX

I have 902s and love it, but wouldn't use it for bottom contract. I was just thinking of buying NRX 902S for bottom contact :)... I am wondering why you wouldn't use it for bottom contact? WW Feel a little soft for bottom contract for me, same for the person who owned it before me. The power was to...

Re: Daiwa cracking down on wholesalers/private dealers?

I would bet that when dealers like Tackle Warehouse have major sales on reels at the end of their runs that the manufactor has given them discount to clear their stock, also.

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

I've wanted to see these three together for a while and came across a NIB Viento and NIB Fuego last week to sit next to a Sol I have had for a while. http://i1362.photobucket.com/albums/r685/soulfisher/IMG_6424%201_zpsqs2enxbk.jpg Had a bunch of the Sols and Fuegos, great reels still have one each....
