Spool Questions ZPI/G1

I'm just starting to dive back into Daiwa's and wanting to try a new spool. Got a bunch of questions. 1. I'm a little confused on all the G1 spools. What I've read, it's a great spool that is lighter that the SV103 spool. What is the difference between the Zillion SV G1 spool that the Trap sells (wh...

Re: Ultrasonic cleaner recommendation.

I got a $40 one from Amazon, worked really well but quit in about 6 months. Contacted the company and they sent out a brand new one no questions asked, which again works great. So I think I would recommend that one. https://www.amazon.com/gp/product/B007Q2M17K/ref=oh_aui_search_detailpage?ie=UTF8&a...

Re: Shimano curado 71 handle knob not smooth

Sounds like your shaft is messed up. Either it has a bur or it’s bent. Could be a bearing or bushing is messed up or has some grit in it. I think the 70/71’s shipped with one bearing and one bushing in the knob. You can try replacing them with two new bearings. eBay has them for 99 cents a piece. Yo...

Re: SVS braking issue

The majority of my fishing is either super early morning or at night. Therefore visually it’s tough to know where the dial is. And there are no nibs or anything so I can feel it. I realize that the majority of my issue is pure habit from my Quantums and my Lew’s BB1 Pros and Team Lew’s but I really...

Re: SVS braking issue

Why can't you see where the dial is? Turn the reel over and look at your dial. It doesn't change from cast to cast unless you move it or it's come loose. Set the tabs to 2 on and 2 off. Dial to max and work it down.

If you cannot remember that setting from day to day, I don't know what to tell you.

Re: Dock skipping setup

You should be able to skip fairly easily with a loose ccc and max on the mag dial. I found that increasing spool tension reduced skipping distance and didn't make it any more easy to skip. It takes a little time and practice to get the muscle memory to make the roll casts pitch skips. Once you get ...

Re: Tackle Trap/Pike Road Reel Service

I just got off the phone with Bryan. Had a question about some parts I purchased from the Trap and the installation process. He was able to fix me up. After I hung up, I started thinking. Hell, he could have just said you are SOL or send it to him. 20-25 bucks for shipping, whatever he charges for r...

Re: Dock skipping setup

Nicely done sir! I love my Steez! People talk about them not handling heavier baits as well but frankly I've thrown 1 oz jigs + trailer with zero feeling of flex or anything. They're just really lightweight, solid and strong. As they should be for a flagship reel. Thank you sir. I agree. I jig and ...

Re: Dock skipping setup

Nicely done. You have a endless number of spools that fill fit that platform. The SS SV spool is the most controlled and skip friendly of the bunch but limited in other uses. You might want to look into the new ZPI spools too. Thank you. I'm looking to try the SS spool and the G1 spool too eventual...

Re: ZPI Bearings vs. Boca Bearings

Hey Guys, Thanks for all the input. Placed an order to Tackle Trap on Saturday to try out the "ZR" bearings. I know to replace the spool bearing and the sideplate bearing (non-drag side). Do you guys leave all the other bearings in your reels stock? Depends on the age of the reel. If it's...

Re: Dock skipping setup

I ended up with a Daiwa Steez EX100 HS. Put CarbonTex drag, 8.1 brass gears, SV103 spool and have a CF handle on the way. 12# fluoro and stuck it on my GLX843 MBR. I may try the G1 spool when they return to stock, but for now, I am impressed. https://www.dropbox.com/s/73uyeadwxtpglyq/Photo%20Sep%202...

Re: Tutula SV TW review... what did you mean?

My guess: The new Tat will cover most everything from weightless 4" plastics up to frogs and 1oz jigs. You're not going to use 65# braid to toss a weightless fluke and get decent results. Same as throwing a frog or 1oz jig with 8# fluorocarbon. The right line for the right technique will make t...

Re: ZPI Bearings vs. Boca Bearings

I have had two sets of Boca Orange Seals. I ended up getting rid of them due to noise. I had to put so much oil in them to make them quiet, that I killed any distance I would have gained over the stock bearings. I have been using the Hedgehog ZR bearings for almost 2 years now with excellent results...
