Re: Anyone having issues buying from Japan Angler?

I've ordered before and never received an email or notification... But my package showed up 3 business days later.

Re: Nice BC reel for Casting 1/4-1/2oz baits LONG DISTANCE

The new Zillion is in your price range, and should be an excellent performer. I enjoy using my 15 Shimano Metanium DC for half ounce baits, though I may sell it to grab the new Zillion. The 1st generation Steez SV TW is also a great caster. These would be my recommendations unless you have the desi...

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

Did anyone notice any differences with the main gear teeth or other? Nothing is different, even the same part numbers. Turns out "hyper" is all hype. A friend sent me a different Japanese YouTube video comparing the main gear teeth. One appears more U shaped, and the other more V shaped. It's hard ...

Daiwa Heartland 6101 mrb. I find it even more versatile than my custom Point Blanks.

QD Quick Drag - is it a new feature in Daiwa reels?
Wondering how it works.
Surprised it's not called hyper drag, along with all their other new hyper BS marketing.

I want to purchase the 6'10 medium light. Where might be the best places to source one?
For me it’s jpangler. Send an email to Kazu, he makes good price and check quickly the availability of the rod.
Perfect. He's hooked me up a few times. Thanks for the tip.

Re: Smaller from dawia

Grab an Alphas CT 70. Best all around reel for the asking price imo. Very versatile too.

Saw the new heartlands, I’ve never tried one
How were the old ones?
I have last year's 6'10 medium - I forgot the name of the model. Anyways, I absolutely love it. Probably the most versatile stick I've owned. Similar to my 7ft medium Point Blank with a little more power.

Re: So how are SV BOOST spools?

My money is on them not being pure distance monsters but more of a spool that cast pretty far effortlessly. This is the way my two ZPI knock off spools and what I hear the Tatula Elite is like. I doubt they will be anything like a TD Zillion HLC. If they can have that free and effortless casting of...

So is the spool narrow like the ct reels?
Not quite as much. These spools are 32mm. The CT reels have 28mm spools.
