Re: Is there a way to increase the braking force on the OG Steez?

Sounds more like you need to get better at using your thumb. I’ve had a 1st gen steez with RCS 1000 spool and it was nowhere as bad as you’re saying it is. I used the 1016 spool in mine the most and it was also not that bad. I rarely exceeded 6 on the brake dial with any situation.

They will fit with some modifications. I just saw a video of the finished product today.

Re: (SLP TATULA "Click" works?) Is it possible to install clicking spool tensioner on SV103?

There's nothing available to make it click unless you can buy one from the guy who machined one or find an old junk reel and take that piece from it. They're pressed on but will come off if you work at it. The guy who makes the piece doesn't seem to respond to anyone's messages from what I've heard...

Raid Japan Gladiator Anti

Anyone have personal experience with Raid Japan rods? More specifically the gladiator anti series? Interested in the baltoro and possibly the blaster.

Re: T-wing and line holding

Line pileup can happen on a T3 reel also. I forget what technique I was doing at the time but it kept happening. I chalked it up to how I palm the reel on retrieve. I was also closing the hood while pitching sometimes. Even though it was comfortable to use I sold it off after a few outings.

Re: Daiwa Zillion handle

Remove the cap on the end of each knob.
Remove the knob screws.
Replace with any knob that fits Daiwa reels.

Re: What do you daiwa guys use to bomb lures?

The zillion 1016 sv spool has been the best overall out of all the spools I’ve played around with so far. Second would be the RCS 1012sv spool. The one that was available a few years ago.

Re: Levante Spinnerbait Special

The 1st gen spinnerbait special is one of my go to rods. I like it so much that I bought a second when they went on sale. It balances well and makes a good multi purpose rod for a handful of different things. I would keep an eye out for one being sold used. eBay will often have them come up for sale...

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

Picked this up and cut foam to fit the compartments. I also added some type of foam tape to the top of the lid. They don’t move when the lid is closed and it’s pretty sturdy.

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

I keep meaning to try the Zillion G1 1016 in my Steez sv tw, but both of mine are loaded with heavier line then I would even use on that reel. I picked them up last time TT had then in stock and kinda regret not getting a third. I have used them so far in both a sv103 and a Ringa SSS and that spool...

Re: Long distance spool for sv103

Anyone done a comparison on the ZPI Pg vs the SLP g1 SV 1012 or 1016? I tested 3 spools in the Steez sv tw all in the same day over the course of 4hrs. The wind was 10-15mph so I didn’t try anything in the 1/8-1/4oz range but did throw a handful of baits from 3/8-1/2oz. The 3 spools were the Zpi PG...
