Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

The SV103 with Zillion 50th 7.3 gears is my new jam. I feel the 7.3s have ever so slightly more power, slightly slower, but seem much more durable. I replaced 2 sets of 7.9s for getting rough after two seasons. The 7.3 I have is well seasoned and still smooth as glass. I just put 7.3 gears into my ...

Re: What reel for frogging on a MB perfect pitch?

SV103 (non steez) in the 7:9:1 ratio or if a 6:3:1 is a good enough deal you can spend $30 and swap a faster set of gears into it. Built like a tank and balances out very well on the xx perfect pitch. I have no issues with casting distance using sv spools. I’m not sure why a lot of people think the...

Re: Daiwa Zillion Type R drag star on TDZ

There’s a flat washer that’s under the stock star that goes on top of the drag spring washers. You can add 1 more of the flat washers to gain a little clearance between the two parts.

You can order the pinion shaft through Tackle Trap in AL.

Re: Monoblock - Why?

I had a Grigio Titanio with Pxr 6.8 gears and the Rcs 1012SV spool in it which required a Steez pinion shaft. That spool is a performer in other reels of mine and it was no different in the block. I could cast anything I tried in the 5-11g range.

Re: Spool System

I just tend to remember what’s in what reel 9/10 times. Some are dead giveaway’s like my Zpi spools, and others I know by color or what the reel is. I know my Alphas sv and Zonda 68 both have the same spool. The SV103’s have the same spools also but in different colors. I guess because I use certain...

Re: High quality oil, lube, etc

You have a bunch of good options available for this task. For me I go by this... Gears - grease Worm gear - grease Frame bearings - grease Spool bearings - oil I use Abu silicote or Daiwa blue grease and Zpi F-0 oil, or Daiwa bearing oil if I’m out of the other. There’s also Shimano grease and Cal’s...

Re: 2019 wishes

I’d love to see a watered down steez sv tw. Essentially like a ss sv version of the new steez sv tw.

Re: OG Zillion Variations

I’ve only owned 3 zillion variants. OG - Dream - 100m

Og was a good reel. Really nothing negative about it.
J dream was pretty but suffered in casting distance.
100 m was good too.

Pe spool in the dream was a great combo.
100m spool in the og was a nice setup as well.

Re: Zillion SV TW question

The zillion sv tw 1016 G1 spools I have say real four real custom on the side. Just like the rcs 1016 but without the RCS letters. My steez sv tw 1016 G1 only says real for on it. So could it be the spool is made in, or from Japan since RCS is a jdm company? No clue if it works that way or not. I do...

Re: Steez A spool options?

I have a steez sv tw and have tried a handful of spools in it. I’m sure I’ll be alone in what I have to say but these are my findings based on what I throw. Which is usually 1/4 - 3/4oz baits. Testing was done with 8-14 gram baits. Stock steez sv tw 1016 G1 (what came with it) Stock steez sv tw 1012...

Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

It would be nice to know if the spring rates are indeed different. I was always under the impression they were about the same from what I’ve read from user experience. I know on my sv spools they acted the same when casting. Both on zillion sv 1016 spools and in the same reel. It could also be the b...
