Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

does that mean the Scorpion will handle lighter stuff better, ie a quarter ounce and below? The Scorpion will not handle quarter ounce and below... i do not believe any DC System will. If you want that capability, you're better off choosing an MGL reel from Shimano's lineup. Hmm, the heaviest stuff...

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

The current Scoprion DC is a 200 size reel with a modified 100 size spool. The Curado DC is a 200 size reel with a 150 spool. The K body is much smaller when compared to the Curado I body (Which the Scoprion DC is using). While the DC system is more simple in design, the braking curves were program...

I don't think anyone would be surprised if Daiwa released another 3 or 4 reels based on the Tatula platform. It's nauseating :doh:

Re: 2018 Curado DC (Merged Topic)

Interesting reel from a permanent tent in camp Daiwa. So this is the 1st iteration of DC braking that only uses the external dial with minimum settings? I was considering getting the newer Scorpion DC for my 1st DC reel, but I guess I should wait to see which system people like better. The Scorpion ...

Re: Top water rod help needed

Most all my rods are custom, but I'm needing a very similar rod for top water baits around a quarter ounce as well. I think I'm gonna pull the trigger on the Daiwa Tatula Elite 6'9 medium light. Should be able to pull double duty for quite a few other things as well.

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

^^^ I am a performance based practical kind of guy. For 3/32 im using spinning gear. A $20 spinning reel will cast further than a $500 casting reel in this situation. Even though this is not an application I agree with I am now curious as to what will happen with the casting reels mentioned. I will...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

hmmm... well since the O.P. asked about casting and in 3 pages nobody actually mentioned distance I guess I will try to share my experience. I like testing and comparing things fairly. I own a steez sv tw, and a tat sv tw. One day I put them both on the same rod , both were spooled with the same li...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

I tested 3 spools in my Steez sv tw after buying it. All had Zpi sic bearings installed and I tested baits from 5/16-1/2oz all day long in winds of about 8-10mph. Stock G1 1016 spool Zillion G1 1016 spool Zpi Nrc001 pg spool The zillion 1016 spool in the Steez sv tw performed the best. It was able ...

Re: Steez SV TW castability compared to Tat SV TW

Never owned Tatula TW SV, because I usually spend more money on a reel. However, I really like my Zillion TW SV, having also Steez TW SV, and Steez SV limited, I think the distance is on par with all of three reels with stock SV spools. Right now, rather than spend ~500 on a Steez TW SV, I would go...
