Re: Steez reel spool original equipment

Usdm Steez SV103. SV TW has the same line capacity so I'm assuming it's a 103, though designated as 1016. Nah, it has different inductor from last generation. Are you comparing the inductor on the Steez SV103 spool and the Steez SV TW spool? What does that have to do with the 103 designation? OP is...

Re: [kroe-nark] : Casting Reel ... 1. must have

Shimano seems to be getting some extra love from TT lately. Seeing this review so soon, while Daiwa zillion sv tws, Tat CT, steez sv Tws and the SV103(which has already came & went) still haven't gotten a review :-k Daiwa no longer sends TT reels for free, while Shimano still do. Factors a lot into...

Re: Light spoon and jig casting - centrifugal or magnetic?

Spoons are basically little casting weights for reels. You aren't going to run into trouble so I will go with centrifugal to maximize the distance. Why do centrifugal brake reels cast further than magnetic brake reels? Serious question. Not being argumentative. I use dual braking (gold colored Carb...

So R18 = JDM Tatsu?
There are many R18s, R18 Fluoro Limited is Tatsu.

Re: Reel Gear Physics

It definitely adds leverage. Exactly. The longer wrench does not add torque, it reduces the amount of force required to achieve the same amount of torque through leverage. There is no leverage in reels and there is no leverage in wrench. Leverage requires an object to exist past the fulcrum, you ar...

Re: Reel Gear Physics

Adding a longer handle is not changing the torque of the reel. Adding a longer handle only makes it easier to apply the same amount of torque to the input shaft. The amount of torque applied to the spool is a direct result of the gear ratio. In other words a 100 lbs of torque is a 100 lbs of torque...
