Re: Tatula Hate vs newer shimanos

I personally have not been impressed with anything Shimano or Daiwa in the "workhorse" range. Ive been more satisfied overall with Doyo products.

Re: Shimano reel names

Although I think Vanford is a weird name for a spinning reel, I hope they are not eliminating the 'Stradic' name for it. That would be a huge mistake. Everyone knows what a stradic is and they scream quality. It would be like Aunt Jemima changing its syrup name after 130 years.. oh crap wait... lol...

Re: Shimano reel names

Shimano used to be like this for USDM.

All casting reels started with C

All spinning reels started with S

Re: First experience with japanese round profile BFSish reel: Shimano Calcutta Conquest 51

The "actual" Calcutta Conquest 50 is by far one of my favorite reels Shimano ever produced. If you actually get your hands on the Conquest version, youll love it even more as the spool is better. Definitely built them better back in the day.

Re: Lews KVD reel?

The KVD baitcaster has aluminum gears. Not a fan of that. I'll take Doyos aluminum gears over Shimanos brass or aluminum any day. LOL!!! As funny as it sounds, Shimanos gears are complete junk. From the "I" series up, nothing but pure garbage for durability. Plenty of friends with Doyo products (mo...

Re: levelwind

Not really. I think having 2 bearings in each knob is a better feel.

Re: What is wrong with Quantum

I don't know why, but the gears on quantum reels wear out faster than Abu, Shimano, and Daiwa. The other annoyances can usually be taken care of with some cleaning, but most anglers aren't gonna be willing to do that as often as the reels require vs other brands. Most of their designs look solid in...

Re: New Daiwa reel?

Is there a difference between this new CT and the current Tatula 100? I like the 100 frame and Mag Z. It is the old Tatula CT. They have removed Magforce Z from the reel by the description. Way worse than a Tatula 100. You get neither the 100 frame or Magforce Z. Daiwa: we took the Tatula CT from 2...

I have the S3 Smoke PT KVD reel, and its a great casting, and stellar smooth reel. Palms like my 50E reels./

Imagine they introduce a Z1016 that has a Tat frame and is made in Thailand. How exciting would that be?
