Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I'd really like to hear what the haters actually want out of daiwa ? :-k It seems we have some keyboard commando engineers among us... The main thing I ask is for Daiwa to ditch the protruding mag dial. Use the Steez CT style palm plate on all there reels. I care about comfort a lot more than looks...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I've palmed the Tatula 100 at my local BPS and it actually palms really good. I hear they are Steez TW SV size but I don't have one so it is more like an Alphas to me. I have held one in the store and it's more Alphas-like then Steez TW SV-like, which is good imho. I was thinking about picking one ...

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I noticed the Tatula SV's that the US pro's are casting have the chrome handle nut covers like the regular Tatulas 100's. Probably have a 90mm handle where as the JDM version is 84mm.

haha his last fish " if this reel wasnt 10:1 i would have missed that fish" :lol:
It makes me sick to think of all the fish I have missed out on over the years because I didn't have a 10:1. Probably lost a bunch of club tournaments to. :(

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I actually like the current mag dial. I can adjust it one-handed and I guess I palm it the right way to not notice it. I feel the dial and the ridge under it on my pointer finger. I tried using two fingers in front of the trigger many times but I can't get used to it. Yeah palming with two finger i...

Re: 2020 Zillion 10

I have zero need for a 10:1 reel but if I can put 6.3:1 gears in the new Zillion I would buy one in a heartbeat because it has the recessed mag dial.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

It looks like the new Zillion has the same frame as the current Zillion SV but it now has the palm plate like on the latest Zillion HD.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

There are a couple of shots where the palm side plate looks like the tatula with a Vector D logo instead of the "ghost" spider. I hope it is just the Tatula Elite.

Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

I have noticed in the past the first kickoff episodes of Project T usually show some existing models.

I saw the video and actually was disappointed as when I red 2020 in the title, the idea of a Daiwa Z TW 2020H came to my mind but guess I'm asking too much and I already have 5 Zs :doh:
Do you have the yellow limited edition Z2020?

Daiwa Project T 2020

The Project T Begins video is up on YouTube. The only thing that stands out to me are the two Tatula looking reels on Brent Ehrler's boat deck look like they have chrome thumb bars.

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

I saw a comment from "someone in the know" that there will not be any new 50 or 70 size reels in 2020.
