Re: New Daiwa reel?

I will gladly buy some Tatula's if and when they change the palm side plate to one like on the Steez CT. I'm pretty sure the one from the HRF/Catalina TW/Zillion HD/Zillion 10 fits old and CT Tatulas. Not sure now it secures to the frame though. I like the Steez CT plate because it narrows down in ...

Re: New Daiwa reel?

Is there a difference between this new CT and the current Tatula 100? I like the 100 frame and Mag Z. It is the old Tatula CT. They have removed Magforce Z from the reel by the description. Way worse than a Tatula 100. You get neither the 100 frame or Magforce Z. Daiwa: we took the Tatula CT from 2...

I bet the showcase is all the new products Daiwa was going to have at the Icast show.

Re: Braid causing gear wear?

Hey Bantam 1. Thanks for the detailed reply. Do you think braided line causes faster gear wear compared to mono and fluorocarbon line.

Re: Braid causing gear wear?

Most of the time I could tell if I had bad gears because of the constant "buzz" feeling and sound. When I had a bad bearing it was usually more of a thumping or scraping sound.

New Jackhammer

Brett Hite mentioned on Facebook that a new Jackhammer is coming out. I bet it will be a tungsten model.

Re: Braid causing gear wear?

This is why all my new high speed reels with be 7:1. That's plenty fast for me. Me, too. I wonder how many pros who tout higher speed reels actually use them. Probably all of them. They don't care how long a reel stays smooth. Most of the reels they are using aren't even what I would call smooth ou...

Re: Braid causing gear wear?

This is why all my new high speed reels with be 7:1. That's plenty fast for me. I even get sketched out over 7:1 brass gears. I have a couple of 7:2 reels that got very rough soon after I bought them. I replaced the gears and the same thing happened again. I then put 6.2:1 gears in them and they st...

Re: Daiwa T-Wing Problem

Thank you. It is a problem I didn’t anticipate, and I like everything else about the reel. I own other Daiwas with a conventional level-wind. While I have no issues with the T-wing reels, I've noticed that my reel collection has begun to lean towards the older Daiwas without the T-wing, while I've ...

Re: Braid causing gear wear?

I do not see how braid would have an effect on gears, but I might be ignorant. Unless it is causing more resistance. What gear ratio are you using? Btw I hate fishing bladed jigs cuz I feel like it makes my gear and my bones rattle lol. Unfortunetely last 3 out of 3 orders from JLS they threw in ja...

Braid causing gear wear?

My go to lure is always a bladed jig. I use them about 80% of the time. I sometimes have 4 rods rigged with bladed jigs. I Always fish them using braided line. Most of my other rods are rigged with braid also. It seems to me though that most of my reels become rough during the retrieve after just a ...
