Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

I think you're doing something wrong if you only get 60% capacity every time. I find it extremely hard to believe the 1520 spool cant even fit 100 yards of 40lb braid. mind to explain in detail on what is correct way to spool up main line to achieve 100% as per given spec? There is no way to be cer...

Re: Reviews out on new 2018 Ryoga?

received my Ryoga 1520H from Japan Angler yesterday (14MAY2018), here is my 1st impression about this reel: 1. super smooth, I could not feel any gear movement while rotating handle (under 0 load of course) 2. palming the reel, i've noticed those square thumb bar digging my palm, but much less anno...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

For me personally....Out of the big named reels.....Abu, Okuma, shimano, daiwa. There isn't a single reel in their line ups that oyu can't back out the spool tensioner all the way to a setting that allows for a slight bit of side to side travel. And set the brakes at a setting that will still cast ...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

"Matt Baldwin3 days ago So in 20mph wind with completely subjective effort casting, your result showed a 1% difference in results and that is a win? You might want to talk to 13 Fishing and they can give you some tips on how to set up the Z because it is different than what you are used to...an...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

https://youtu.be/pYNEm4I6H8E?t=934 Remember this? big head-scratcher on so many levels Yeah, I don't know how in the world a dedicated BFS reel (SS air) can throw 1/8 oz only 70 or so feet, unless you choke the settings down so that it cannot cast freely. I have a reel with that same spool that can...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

Oh but im absolutely NOT implying its a bad thing. Just saying that its not worth writing XShip on the box when Daiwa had it forever and didn't even bother calling it as a feature. I agree, but it is a useful feature when compared to something like their S3D spool (increased stability and reduced v...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

I agree with this. In THE REEL TEST video the Z did actually get the farthest distance. Against Shimanos most important reel in their line-up the Curado K the Z without using ballbearing had the longest cast. No it didnt, curado K out cast the concept z in reel test. Look at the 11:20 mark Yes it d...

Re: Daiwa Tatula HD 153 size

Wonder if a 150 spool could or would replace the HD spool. Only downfall to my Tatula HD is that dang fixed inductor, even though it seems fine for now as a deep cranking/chatterbait reel... You mean if a 153 spool can fit into the original HD reel? Daiwa lists them both as 36mm spool, so im guessi...

Re: Concept Z initial impressions. Did I expect too much?

So....basically summarizing everything on this thread. The Concept Z has proven its point and philosophy. We have developed a new one-piece bearing technology that casts equal to or better than the reels in its class you guys are so caught up in proving what will cast longer you seem to have missed...
