Re: '19 Steez ct sv tw

There has been a lot of talk about how the Steez CT performs. The insides overall are pretty much the same as the Steez SV TW. Biggest change would be with the main gear. It has ridges in the inner rim of the main gear that a spring loaded pin rubs on to create the buzz sound when the drag pulls ou...

Re: T3 ballistic

Assuming you can still get them, it's +/- 20$. I've replaced a couple 1016 hoods that were either 14$ or 24$.

Re: OG Zillion Gear Swap

Take the side plate off, pull the main gear and pinion out. Grease the new set and put it in place. Put the drag stack on and close the reel up. Super easy and doesn't take more than a couple minutes.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Was able to just yard cast this reel for a while today. This reel is great. Really impressed with this 30mm SV spool so far. I've got 10# sniper on mine tossing a weightless wacky rigged 4" senko. Really effortless casts with this. Glad I got it.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Mine just came in. First impression...that is one tiny spool in hand. It does hold a surprisingly large amount of line. Not a ton but alot more than I anticipated..which is a good thing. Right now it's on a DX742C. Haven't done much casting yet. 25mph winds and it's 30 degrees says that will wait. S...

Same color, weird. Anyone notice the Steez SV TW is not listed on the website?
Still on the Japan website but seems to have disappeared from the US one. :doh:

Re: Drilling an Avail 16ALD15 Spool

This actually wouldn't be too hard. Mapping it out via Cad or any visual rendering program would be pretty simple. Getting the correct circumference of the porting to balance out correctly would be the tedious part.

Re: Alphas CT 70 in stock at Digitaka!

Anybody else get their hands on one? Can't decide if I wanna pull the trigger or not. I went for the Steez CT XH first. Depends on how much I like it as to whether I buy the Alphas or another Steez CT(this time in the 6.3 ratio). I love the Alphas/Pixy form factor, but this new Steez is actually sm...
