Cmon lets get a little sneak peak! Will the reel seat be the same as the new XX and USA Destroyers?

Mibro Handle Knobs

Wasn't sure if this belongs here or in the reel forum, but anybody ever tried these knobs? Was installation as easy as normal Daiwa I type knobs? I really like the look of these but I'm confused how they fit both Daiwa and Shimano handles? I'd thought Daiwa/Shimano knobs were not interchangeable... ...

I wouldn't mind seeing a longer handle version of the Leviathon....

Re: Post purple

Wee bit of purple in there... Is that a Basszone handle? How do you like it? Yup. I just installed it last night, so haven't fished it yet, but based on the fit and finish I'm sure it will do just fine. Honestly, it looks just as nice as my rcs hadles. I'm impressed enough that I now have a smaller...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

My new frog/pitching reel, thanks to @basscattrent for setting me up with the sv103xs at a fair price. Added ZPI spool bearings, 100mm carbon handle, and Megabass Hyper knobs (2 bearings per) Will probably do a little more but not sure, wish those carbon ZPI brake caps would fit...

Re: New Daiwa?

Reel feels pretty smooth out of the box with very little handle play. Definitely came well greased, unlike the Tatulas and Fuegos I have, not surprised since its a different factory. Will probably take it on a test run at a local pond tomorrow, then put it through some serious work on my smallmouth ...

Re: New Daiwa?

Well, I went ahead and ordered one. Will try and post some decent pics of the internals and initial thoughts upon arrival. In no way do I expect it to perform on the level of my Japanese made reels, but I'd like to think Daiwa wouldn't put their name on a complete dud.
