Re: parts for a daiwa td z/ito

You cant put a swept handle on a factory TDZ star, you will need to swap the star to a swept star as well. Yeah. You don't need washers for clearance between the straight drag star and swept handle. You need a swept drag star. Make sure you also acquire the appropriate handle collar for whichever d...

Re: What to do about chipped paint?

Enamel paint (small bottles) from a craft store. Find the applicator that works best for you. I like foam and sponges, made for painting. They both come in several forms. I won't even bother if anymore if it's not black. Silver is too particular, and if it's not close to perfect, it can really stand...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

I suspect you and hoohoorjoo may palm your reels differently. I use right hand reels and palm with 3 fingers in front of the trigger. I notice a lot of lefty reel users both palm and cast with only 2 fingers in front of the trigger so they don't have to change grip between casting and palming. The ...

Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

Does anyone find the position of the brake dial bothersome in any way? Accidental adjustments or digging into your finger? I personally cant even feel the dial when palming it. It is very "out of the way", even compared to its big brother, the SV TW. Interesting. It seems like the dial would be dir...

Re: Spool Observations

I believe it's a synergy type of deal. Matching the right spool with the right reel. Inductor size and magnetic polarity are the key things in play here. The other part is the human factor. Some prefer a faster more aggressive approach, some the opposite, some in the middle. I live in the middle. Ge...

Check out Bass n Bonsai tube. He has a fleet of reels with one sided handles. I think he buys the inexpensive Ali handles and cuts them himself. They look good.

Ordered a 8.1 Lefty T3 SV off ebay from Japan, hope the reel comes looking like it does in the pictures.
If the spools performance doesn't quite light your fire, look to the G1 1012SV....OR, the Zpi nrc001M

Why’s that, did the “carbon monocoque” handle get slick when it got wet?

Re: Post purple

I got the SS SV105 in today. Its flawless. There is not a mark on it. I don't know why it was listed as "B" condition. The reel is perfect. The box has some subtle rash but that is it. Not bad for $146 to my door. https://i.postimg.cc/brfDkj6B/20190426-135938.jpg Where did you pick her up?
