Used SS SV or Tatula SV TW

My buddy wants to jump into baitcast for the first time. Opinions wanted. Casting spinnerbaits 3/8oz. And Bomber minnow baits 5 inch 3 trebled ones. I myself have never tried either of the 2 reels he is considering. SS SV is used and Tatula SV TW is new.

Re: Can't remove screws on Bass or Die knobs

Didn't work for me. Drilled the post out from behind. Found out that the screw threads in the post seem tapered on some bass or die handles, My other 2 steez TN's aren't like that. Knobs were easily removed and put on a 90mm zillion handle. You might be able to salvage the old handle if you want to...

Re: Can't remove screws on Bass or Die knobs

for those stubborn screws I have cut the end off a Phillips screwdriver to fit into a soldering iron, by holding it on the screw head the heat transfers and softens the Loctite. then use your good screw driver to remove the screw. may have to hold the iron there for a few minutes but saves messing ...

Re: Can't remove screws on Bass or Die knobs

If the post is spinning you're pretty SOL. Daiwa thread locks the screws from the factory and some just dont want to release. I have cut a slot in the back of the post to allow a slotted screwdriver to grip it and then broken the post screw loose, but it does leave a slot on the back of the knob po...

Can't remove screws on Bass or Die knobs

I'm trying to remove the knobs from an OG steez TN reel. I have done this many times before. It seems that the previous owner put something on the screw threads. Maybe some sort of thread lock liquid. The only thing that I have succeeded in doing is loosening the knob post so that it also turns when...

Re: Post purple

ZPI PG spool because its not the same purple as my Steez EX 7.9 but the parts found a home That Daiwa purple is odd shade. Not much matches up with it. The Megabass Hyuga rods match nicely though. They're easy on the wallet too. I'm a big fan if the 72H. Its the poor man's X4 Destruction. https://s...

Re: Anyone add weight to butt section for better balance?

I flatten half and one ounce bell sinkers or egg sinkers and add them to the rod butt. It adds weight but balance is better.

Re: C clip removal tool

I use a bitty precision flat blade screw driver. Place the little blade in one of the slots and twist.. bingo. that works! Also could use a larger size sewing needle...pointed end or loop end. Most importantly, put part of your other hand next to the clip so you can grab it before it flies away, to...
