Re: Shimano Aldebaran

Come on guys. Someone must know the answer. Throw me a crumb. The Labor Day sales are approaching fast.

Shimano Aldebaran

Are there any differences in these reels? I realize the 31 model is the JDM version, but are there other slight differences?

Shimano 18 Aldebaran MGL 31 HG vs Shimano AldMGL 51 HG (from the Shimano website). Thanks in advance.

Re: ICAST 2019

Not sure if anyone mentioned this yet, but there's 175 slides of new merchandise for Icast on the Bassmasters website. I didn't see anything for Daiwa and Shimano.

Re: Who is the MOST over rated ?

Really...Apparently you didn't do your homework before you responded. The Lamiglass reference was way back when Dobyn's first started making rods.

Re: 2019 Steez CT SV and 2019 Alpha CT SV

I've read here on TT that reels with brass main gears tend to be a tad smoother than reels with aluminum gears, but the brass gears add weight. Has the Steez always used an aluminum main gear? If this is true, I'm assuming Daiwa does this to keep the weight down.

Dialing In a Curado DC

Need some advice/input on dialing in a new 151DC. I attempted to follow the instructions by allowing a little sideways play in the spool, but what a disaster. When I purchased the DC I thought it would be very similar to the Daiwa SV spools. So far there's no comparison. Any advice other than puttin...

Aldebaran MGL

I'm not sure when this reel was released, but I'm assuming it was sometime during 2018. Anyway, I just returned from the Sacramento ISE sport show. I asked the Shimano rep if he had a Aldebaran MGL that I could look at. He handed me a Aldbaran, but it didn't say MGL. He said it was the most recent m...

Need Help Identifying Stella and Exist Spinning Reels

As the subject states I need some assistance. I understand the different spool sizes, but the letters are confusing. I know that PE refers to braid and I'm sure others refer to the gear ratio. It appears that the JDM reels have a whole different lettering system like putting the letter "C" in front ...

Re: What's next for Daiwa...

I've never been a huge fan of any of the Tatula's. Daiwa's older reels are my favorites. I think Daiwa should bring the Pixy back with a SV spool and also make it so that you can customize it with after market parts.

Shakeyhead. I have a customized Daiwa SOL with a SV spool on mine.
