Re: Steez A Question

I feel like I need one of these Steez A's, though I would be equally happy with a Zillion version of the new Tatula that uses standard sized spools at some point in the near future. Is there anyone out there with a Steez A that prefers the OG Steez frame and would be interested in a swap? I like the...

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

I thought the Regional Tatula CS on AliExpress was a pretty nice looking reel. https://ae01.alicdn.com/kf/HTB1EPoaQVXXXXaZXVXXq6xXFXXXx/230146240/HTB1EPoaQVXXXXaZXVXXq6xXFXXXx.jpg https://www.aliexpress.com/item/2017-DAIWA-TATULA-CT-TYPE-R-CS-100H-100HL-100HS-100HSL-Baitcasting-Fishing-Reel-200g-7/3...

Re: Weak Drag on OG Zillion

Is it possible you are missing a spring washer (or they are flattened) between the drag star and the roller bearing collar?

Re: New 2018 Power Pro

Does that mean it is more likely to cut guides as well like 4 carrier braid? I thought the roughness of 4 carrier is what makes it cut grass, because it is like a fine tooth saw.

No 7' casting model? Would have been a nice bfs option.

I 3rd. Great guides and lots of sizes and styles. The single foot K belly guides are my favorite style. I keep redoing old rods I like with them in my spare time.

Re: TD-Z 103h spool in T3

R+ spools are always worth picking up. You might have to move some shims in the T3 for proper fitment of the 103 spool.

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

I'd rather they not make a Zillion out of this new tatula and I wish Daiwa would kill off the old box Tatulas. I don't want to look at a Zillion and see a Tatula. I also believe Zillions should be butter smooth 8oz tanks. Maybe they can use the old Tatula Zillion platform like with the new Zillion ...

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

Couple a pic's of the 18 JDM ZLN HD. Sweet looking, But still no for $400 clams!! If that exact reel was based on the new Tatula 100 frame I would be all about it. Looks sweet, but to big for my preference. DaveJ I'll bet we'll see a smaller ZLN SV version, Maybe next year?? And hopefully it has th...

Re: OG Zillion Spool Upgrade

Again I'm going to display my ignorance here...what SV or 103 spools fit the OG Zillion? Would they all require some form of spacer? If so, where does one find these spacers? Thanks for the responses so far guys. Non fit without spacers!! I've been using a red PE spool for my light cranks/square bi...

Re: It happened, the Trulinoya Daiwa

I would be one of those, despite my love for Daiwa's current and previous offerings. Ever since I saw the CG80, I have been looking a lot closer at Shimano's 2018-19 leaks. 8-[ I suppose I could just buy up some older Daiwas and leave it at that. :-k if they were to go full China mode (which i don'...

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

The maxed out version of the Tatula CT 100 already exists. It's called the Steez SV TW. I wouldn' t be surprised if we don't see a zillion SV TW update for a while. If we did, it would just be a steez sV TW without the recessed side plate brake dial. Not sure that's worth +/- 200$. If this new tatu...

The new sanded cork are the revised Tatula rods. The Elite rods are still going to be silver with EVA. As for he Zillion casting reel rumor has it they are being discontinued due to the new Tatula variants. The new Kage swimbait rods with cork and are pretty sweet looking. Gosh I hope they don't of...
