Re: New Daiwa reel?

Seems like it is going to be either Tatual for baitcasting or MQ for spinning. The problem I have... diminishing returns. I used to justify the Steez, TDZ, Pixy because it was unique, more refined, and just down right cool. With all of the frames being the same. Most of the materials being identical...

Re: New Daiwa reel?

I was just reading the review of the new metanium. They were gushing at the Magnesium frame and the feel. It looks somewhat similar to a TD-Z.

I miss classic Daiwa :cry:

Re: Strongest, lightweight treble hook?

The Evergreen hooks are not light wire but they are the sharpest and strongest hooks for their size.

Re: Morethan 1000xh - Coffee Grinder

I have many sets of gears I have collected over the years. This is the first time I've had to ran into the send for repair. Usually just send the part numbers to Plat or JLS. As for price, I would love it to be only 6,500 yen. Howerver, unless it says different in the Japanese text, it has always be...

Morethan 1000xh - Coffee Grinder

I got a Morethan 1000xh last September from Japan Lure Shop. Never really got to put it to work before the winter. I was throwing jerkbaits last week and twice it engaged during a cast. What was one of the smoothest reels I own is now possibly the worst. Even more frustrating, the Morethan is a mode...

Re: BFS/micro frog

https://i.imgur.com/aOmXGVZl.jpg I have these two little guys, but I have no idea who makes them. I throw them on a M/XF Avid with 13lb mono. It's all wrong but it works a lot of the time so long as I am reasonable about where I throw them. Maybe booyah and scumfrog? Jackall spin gavacho. They are ...

Re: daiwa morethan 19

I have one with #50 PP and it holds plenty of line for me. I was frog fishing and I can't get close to spooling it even bombing it. It holds more than my SV103s and I've frogged with those for 3 years now. I was throwing a jerkbait on a SV103 spool with #12 floro and it is a superb caster. I love th...

Re: Tackle Loss Support Group

Wanted to move my Shimano Cumulus to my office for safe keeping as it wasn't being used. Coming in from the garage, swinging around the corner, the tip found it's way into the air duct. As the rod loaded up it was slow motion as the top 6 inches shattered off. I was so mad as I was only moving it to...

Re: Pre service reels and question for Slaz

As stated before, not here to bash as I am all Daiwa.

That said, the two Catalinas I recently got was nearly bone dry.

You can see the before and after a pre service.

Re: What would a J Dream in

In my time online, I've seen the J Dream come down a lot in price inside Japan.

Here is a combo set:

Re: Screeching Zillion HD

Got two new Catainlas from TTT and they were bone dry. First time I had a reel squeal right out of the box.

Re: Low Profile Baitcaster With Brass Gears

I have yet to use the Catalina 4.9 on the water. However, it is on a rod with a 2.5oz lure. I was laughing to myself as I reeled the bait up and down without feeling any resistance.
