Re: ZPI RC-001 vs. RC-002

Take extra care when removing the shaft pin - the spool shaft is made of duralumin, which is softer and easier to damage then the shafts in the regular Daiwa spools. Does anyone know if this is the case for the NRC spools as well? Yes sir, aluminum spool shafts on the M and PG spools too. The gold ...

Re: RARE SPOOLs

The 002 is shallower than the 001, think of then like older M and PG spools. They one is definitely worth $60.

Don't forget the Cosugi Works spools, KTF's, and F40 Studio.

Re: Steez Gear Mods

I don't think you can find 6.3 brass TD-Z gears new anymore, unless you find someone who has a set sitting around. If you change gears, changing the drive and pinion gears as a set is best. You're just more likely to get a smoother feeling reel that way. Yes, you can just directly swap the gear sets...

Re: Steez Gear Mods

Hi All, I was thinking about to order new gears for steez 103hl but i saw on the web that durability of stock gears may be upgraded to brass from TDZ versions and this information stopped me from ordering stock light alloy gears. Also i did not found any information about successful swaps/replaceme...

Re: tatula 701mrb?

thanks for the replies folks. i'm looking for a new spinnerbait rod, not a crank rod. i like slower action rods for them, i feel like i stick them better. i try to limit myself to 5 rods while i'm fishing, so this rod will be used for 1/8-1/4oz buzzbaits, topwater, and probably squarebills at times...

Re: Daiwa warranty/repair question

They'll likely honour the warranty. Just tell them exactly what has happened and ensure they understand it hasn't been abused and was stored in a sleeve.

Re: tatula 701mrb?

I found that both of my original Tatula' s are more like between a mod-fast and fast taper and not as slow as the regular taper they denote it as. Like sarcazmo said, it's a really versatile rod.

Re: TD-Z R+ Spool Question

Got the c-clip off and it is all buggered up and missing parts #22 from the schematic. I'll have to see if someone can put this back together. I have no tool to remove the pin on the spool shaft. That pin should just slide out, it isn't a press fit like the other spool pin that mates with the pinion.

A little late to the party, but I run an HLC spool currently. It is on a XX Braillist and does wonderful pitching and casting.
Is there more than one HLC spool?
Yup, there are two. One with dimples that is stock with the OG HLC reel and the I'ze Factory spool that is drilled.

Re: Steez 103 R+ spool

I really enjoy hearing about guys who still appreciate and enjoy the venerable TD-Z platform, which will always have a special place in my heart. That original Steez 103 spool, black or red, is fantastic in the TD-Z. This is why so many folks still seek the original Gigas R+ reel, or the spool, or ...

Re: upgrade drag on ss sv

which model steez gears will drop into the ss sv? OG Steez SHA 7.1:1 gears will fit, as will the Steez SV gears ( both the 6.3 and 8.1 sets). I don't think that's right. OG stress and TD-Z gears swap to each other, but it's my understanding that the 8.1 Steez (both the limited and usdm SV), Zillion...
