Re: Tackle Trap/Pike Road Reel Service

It's been a little while since this post has had an update but I will say that Bryan and TTT are first rate. I had 2 reels tuned and a 3rd (best of all) that will be completed soon which will be completely redone. I live close enough to TTT so I can hand deliver and pick up my stuff and can talk to ...

Re: Alphas spool compatibility

As Bryan said you would have a gap and would need to add spacers to make it work reliably. DIY spool, cosugi works spool,or the megabass finesse spool are direct fit options.

Re: T3 Air

Diameter, Air spool is 32mm, ballistic is 34mm. Spacers could be made for it to work but id probably just add a 34mm DIY spool instead.

Re: Best UL BC for trouts in small streams

I've casted the 16 aldebaran bfs with baits down to .8g and it was doable, but with my 1.3g mini cranks it was awesome. The lightweight avail spools are great in the older shimanos for casting the tiny baits. If you're wanting to stick with daiwa the ss air spool is a little lighter than the alphas ...

Re: Daiwa Tatula LT1000

I fully plan on getting a luvias 1003 eventually. I'm waiting for a few casting reels to come back from Spanky from being super tuned then I'll look to get the luvias. Planning on attaching it to the 6'3" tatula finesse rod which should make for a fun setup.

Re: Daiwa Tatula LT1000

I haven't fished them yet but I've handled over a dozen just to get a good sample of consistency and they are all very smooth and refined. I've actually preferred them to the stradics i've handled.
