Re: Daiwa Project T 2020

Do the US Pros beat around the bush avoiding talking about the reel or is it random footage they just had lying around 🤷🏻‍♂️ This video was made for Japan, not the US. The American guys are just in it because of the facial recognition factor. US tourney guys are like full-on celebrities over there....

Re: Flip Pitch Punch Reel

Take hand off handle. :lol: The roller clutch will keep the spool pinned with the drag.

Re: Scorpion MGL

Really makes me wonder what people are doing to their reels to cause this. I use nothing but 50 sized reels in the salt and catch plenty of big fish(jacks, striper, redfish) and never have an issue with my gear. My Stiles are based on Curado 70, with brass gears from a 70, and they have been bullet...

Between the boring looks, and TWS, I've stopped even looking at Daiwa as a possible purchase. [-(

Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

I got the SLX XT in the mail the other day, and the rod that completes the combo deal yesterday. The 6'10 rod balances very well with the reel. The XT reel is very smooth feeling out the box. I decided I'm not gonna touch the reel yet until I actually fish it bone stock first. The Wife and I are gon...

Re: Anyone got an SLX XT coming?

Since 2 of my friends liked my SLX reels soo much, I lost them both. I took advantage of American Legacy SLX XT reel/SLX rod combo for $149.99, and now have an SLX XT HG on the way. I will fish this one stock before I do anything to it. I want to see what it's like out the box. Well, I may change o...

Re: Bearings

Yep, careful what you buy. I have been running HawgTech for quite some time. Knowing the guys personally, I know the source of them.

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

Nevermind, Im talking about Shimano bringing the SLX MGL to the states and basically wiping the need for the CU70/71, and you keep telling me the difference of the 150 and the CU70/71. So neither one of us are understanding each other. I know you are more of a USDM person. But, if Shimano USA brough...

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

Because a majority of the US anglers want more line capacity for use with heavier mono. They are OK with a small spool in a smaller reel, but a larger reel with a shallow spool isn't that popular outside of TT. Im trying to figure out what you mean by this post as the SLX and the CU70/71 are both s...

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

Correct me if I'm wrong, but isn't the SLX MGL available in JDM only? That technically still leaves a hole in the USDM. Yeah, but Shimano has brought every other JDM name/reel over here, why not bring that too? Xince they are eliminating the Citica anyways, why not kill 2 birds with one stone? They...

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

The Curado 70 is what I was talking about. The spool diameter is still smaller on the 70 which helps with smaller and lighter lures. Weight is one component, spool diameter is another. Push a car with different tire sizes. The one with smaller diameter is much easier to get moving than the one with...

The 70 is more finesse orientated with the smaller and lighter spools. The diameter is also smaller.

Re: Curado 70 discontinued?

I dont really think the need for the CU70/71 is worth it IMO. With having the SLX available is the many styles they have come out with, why even bother in that price range. Ive had the SLX and the CU70, and I thought the SLX was a better feeling reel overall.
