Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

Hopefully they're adopting the steez style palming plate then for the zillion, as they've done with some JDM models, on the next series US zillions.

I assumed it was just the predictable Tatula 100 SV, which will inevitably come out.

Re: New small spinning reel - high-end Shimano, high-end Daiwa, or Van Staal?

If you're going to be super careful with it and wash and dry it after every trip, absolutely not dunk it etc, then choose your poison. Otherwise the Van Staal. The VS won't be anywhere near as nice to use, but will last.

Re: What's REALLY next for Daiwa

What are the chances we will see an update to the Zillion? New frame and get that brake dial recessed! That's what I'd hope for. They seem to have done it on some of the JDM reels, and the Steez. I was disappointed that they didn't do it on the new Tatula. My only bugbear with the current Daiwa lin...

Re: Braid to fluorocarbon

I use the FG exclusively. If you have to re-tie when you're fishing, which is rare, it only takes 4 or 5 minutes to get a good knot. If the bite window is so short you don't have that time, grab another rod. About the only time I need to re-tie on the water is if my leader has become too short due t...

Re: CQ51 thumb bar problem

I ended up being brave and stripping it down. Cleaned, lubed and re-assembled. Much better now, no clips lost and only one minor assembly error that was easily corrected. :lol: The chrome plating on the thumb bar where it makes contact with the gearbox has been worn away, so I expect it will get sti...

CQ51 thumb bar problem

My CQ51 thumb bar has become a little stiff, I took the side plate off and had a little look and flushed the area with meths and oiled it, quite a lot of black/grey stuff was flushed out. Took it fishing and it was only marginally better. I didn't fancy taking the thumb bar assembly apart as there a...

Re: sv spool problems

Casting brake or drag? If you mean the drag and you've got braid on the spool, check the braid isn't slipping on the spool. Put a dot on the lip of the spool with a marker pen and pull the braid enough to make the drag appear to slip. If the dot isn't moving, or not moving at the same rate as you're...
