Re: Show off your stuff

Got a new case for ice fishing, orvis safe passage carry it all. I could carry up to 4-5 rods if I change the configuration :big grin: https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49134379807_2eb82bd4fd_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/65535/49134186461_81ba453619_c.jpg https://live.staticflickr.com/6553...

Re: Lets see all them Daiwa's

Webp.net-compress-image (2).jpg A couple reels I just finished up recently. The Sv103 and Coastal TWS came out great; lots of goodies and fun modifications packed in those. Just picked up the Zillion SV and threw a few things on it so far and I've got to thank my main man Johnny Skinnz, for sending...

Re: Daiwa SV103 or 50th Anniversary opinions

Anyone use a TD-Z R+ spool in an SV103? If so, how do you like it and what is the performance like? Thanks!

Re: ICAST 2019

Hopefully it will bring some distinction back to the Zillion line and become a new true classic.

2019 Levante Perfect Pitch and Shakyhead

Looking for info on how close these rods are to their XX counterparts as far as sensitivity, etc.? Has anyone here fished them for a while to comment. How do they compare to rods from other manufacturers? I love my 19 Levante Jerkbait Special. Thanks for any/all help and best wishes on the water!

Re: Alphas 2019 vs 2017 model

Maybe they are thinking the 2015 Alphas SV105 vs. the new CT.

Re: ICAST 2019

I don't hate the TWS system on Daiwa reels, I have never have an issue with it going bad, aside from scratching a generation one Tatula Type R's and that was MY mistake. I think it is plenty solid on the Steez level reels and works fine, even though there isn't a major performance gain. This all sa...

Re: TD-Z drag issue

Sounds to me like you have click leaf spring holder (looks like a cup) upside down. I bought a Fuego with this same issue. Reversed it to have the "cup" facing up and it's fine. If it is facing down, you are most likely having it dig into the rim and cause friction when reeling with the drag tighten...

Re: Shimano Chronarch 100A, SF, MG turnkey question

the brake case on the left side plate may have been turned 180 degrees from original. also, the latch may have just been turned short of full tightness. it will still lock up but there will be a bit of play/movement in the side plate. if key is turned full range i'd check the brake case for wrong p...
