Re: NEW: Daiwa Tatula 100 (based off Steez)

This spool structure has fewer parts and handles heavy loads when cranking. Its supported by three bearings. Right?

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Well I guess the reaming is almost over.................I might have to buy a MGXtreme 2 on eBay. Get a JDM LV7. Smaller reel, and better overall for light baits. What about the new Daiwa-Bait-Reel-Black-Bath-Steeves-SV-TW-1012SV-XH Would this one work well in Russia or China? https://www.ebay.com/...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Also, their chrome parts, such as the clutch, losing its chrome after a season or less is just :laugh1: That's what i get on reels from aliexpress sold for $25. Too hard for abu to do proper chrome pieces? Never have i ever seen a Daiwa reel with erased/chipped chrome on the clutch, but on abu, its...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Here we go again............."They don't even use any tech, its just linear magnets in most reels, and they're made in Korea."
You must be talking about Daiwa or Shimano. Its just more fake news.........from the left.

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Hmm......What a powerful life lesson when comparing Abu Garcia with other reels. "The MGXTREME2 for a good price would be fun, but stock versus stock price the Steez hands down wins. Think a copycat site youtube test had the MGXTREME2 out casting the Steez and a high end Shimano though.....&quo...

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

How many times have we heard this one: "This benefit really is for the larger sizes of this bait and certainly the 25.5 is an easy bait to pull in the water but I was also using a low gear ratio reel in the Revo4 X Winch (5.4:1) made specifically for this application." Sound familiar right!

Re: Abu Garcia WTF's

Wow........Im still using the original Revo STXs that were released back in 2007. That was and still is the best release of a low profile reel ever....IMO..............I use all the brands conquests and tdzs and their great reels. However when it comes to cranking power and torque no one can match t...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

I haven't heard about a handle lean problem. Maybe you bought a lemon........... It does happen, "But the tolerance between the base of the handle shaft and czb bearing is so great that there is quite a bit of lean in the handle on the retrieve. " Provide some pictures of the issue!!! :cry...

Re: Daiwa PT33 Series

The great Rick Clunn used the Daiwa pt33 to win the Bass Master Classic on the Arkansas River years ago. He won that tournament using a bomber model "A" crankbait. Bill Clinton (former president) attended the final weigh in and the rest is history. I have 2 pt33 3:8 - 1 cranking models. Th...
