Daiwa Knob Inserts?

Can you purchase just the Daiwa knob inserts without the knob? It would be a neat woodworking project to make burl wood knobs but would need to be able to get the middle insert part to build around.

Re: TDZ / TDX is there a better platform

To me no, the TDZ platform is the best. I have a LIN 10, a Monoblock, IS 71, PX-Type R and love all of them. But notice I have one of each and really no desire to get another. I have 2 TDZ R+, an ITO, a Personal Order, and a A.O.I. in the TDZ frame. They are the best combination of comfort, casting,...

Re: Where to send my Diawa Steez for tune up.

Either of those two. I have never sent a reel to tackle trap but they are a first rate company to deal with and Gary over there is an enthusiast tackle nut not just a store owner. I am sure they would do a great job. Ian Shields is who I have sent my reels to. He does a fantastic job servicing and u...

Re: Spool Questions ZPI/G1

Put my new zpi m spool in my og steez with 10lb sniper. I had to turn the brakes up to 8 to get any real control. I liked it better in my t3 mx. I'm going to give it try in tdz. I did notice in my AOI I had to turn the breaks up higher where I am normally around 3 with a SV or RC-002 spool I had to...

Re: ZPI NRC001-M Spool vs RCS 1012 sv G1?

Teal if you could also compare the new ZPI spools to the RC-002 spool that would be great. I know you have your share of those!

Re: Spool Questions ZPI/G1

I put the M spool in my TD AOI this evening spooled with 12 lb Tatsu to try briefly for standard uses. I tried on my Tomahawk F4 Phobos with a Bandit 200 which is an ok casting lighter bait. But with this spool it cast about the same as a DT-6 which is a great casting crankbait. I tried the DT 6 and...

Re: Spool Questions ZPI/G1

I got my ZPI M spool in today and just for kicks spooled it up with 4 lb mono and put in in a TDZ on a Megabass F1 Ultra Function to test it for finesse. I tried a ned rig with part of a senko, total weight 6 grams and it launched it over 30 yards effortlessly, tried it with a 1" grub total wei...

Pre Rapala vs new "original wiggle warts"

I have never used the legendary "pre Rapala" wiggle warts but have a couple of the new "original wiggle warts" these new ones hunt perfectly just like I have heard the "pre Rapala" ones are supposed to. Are the pre Rapala wiggle warts really worlds better than the curre...

Whatever happened to firetiger?

Firetiger has always been one of my top producing crankbait colors and it used to be a standard color made for pretty much every model of crankbait. However now it seems like more crankbaits than not don't even have a firetiger color offered. Any ideas why this classic color has seemed to fall out o...

Re: Fast action L/UL Spinning rod for plastics/jigs?

I have the Meagabass Phase III F0 68XS Deep Throat and and use it mostly for 1/32 to 1/64 jigs with either little plastics or live bait and it works perfectly. I don't know if you could possible get better than this rod for your purpose but it may be a challenge to find one. I use it with a Shimano ...

Re: Kastking reels

I have also noticed some Pflueger and Abu reels seem to share parts and platform. Are some of them made by the same company?

Re: Kastking reels

I haven't used one but it seems they are totally polarizing as it seems like people say they are the best reel ever made or total crap. Now I am pretty sure they aren't on par with a Curado, Tatula, or something of that caliber but would they be a good reel for someone on a tight budget as a better ...

Re: Sadly done with Shimano Baitcasters

I can cast blindfolded with my Daiwas. . Agree not just as a statement but in practice. I do a fair amount of night fishing and I don't have to turn up the breaks any more at night. I can just kind of feel when the bait is slowing down at the end of a cast to thumb the reel when I can't see the bai...

Re: Sadly done with Shimano Baitcasters

Yea I didn't mean at all for it to be a Daiwa Vs Shimano post, both make lots of excellent reels I highly recommend. Both have fantastic breaking systems, the DC breaking system can launch a bait like no other with its sweet wine. Its just of the equally good breaking systems the Daiwa mag breaking ...
