Re: Daiwa Zillion SV TW

Add the extra worm gear bearing to it. They're the same size as the handle bearings. There was a noticeable difference in the retrieve to me. I just bought a gold ZPI PG spool to put in the ZSVTW, so I can throw the 1016SV spool in my SS SV. Overall one of the best daiwa TW reels. The shape or style...

Re: Daiwa Bearing Issues

Daiwa steez reels have a bearing on the spool and one in the side plate opposite the handle which is fairly easy to remove with a small screwdriver. For the spool bearing you need the tool. Bearings are pretty cheap about $40 for a pair of good ones. I personally like the ZPI bearings but there are ...

Re: Reels for Better Distance for Lighter Baits

Out of the 3 mentioned metanium mgl hands down. Then chronarch than curado. Metanium and chronarch mgl spools start up easier and are lighter and cast very good.

Re: Steez A Question

Thanks for all the replies, only bad review I found was a guy from BR (not a member there, read it from google) and he said the stabilizing pin just fell off his Steez A. Sold it for a Metanium MGL saying it felt "much smoother on retrieve" which was odd to me. I just have a deep fear of ...

Re: Steez XT

I've not heard, seen, or read of trouble with Alconite of yet. I mean, how much hardness is enough? I'm no expert, and at risk of coming across really stupid here, but I believe I once read even the vaunted MB X7 series uses them? No that is false. Megabass x7s are Fuji kr concept titanium guides. ...

Re: Shimano Loomis Conquest rods

What is everyone using their 904’s for? I have an 843 and am very impressed with the way it fishes. So light weight and nimble. I’m debating 904-844’s

Re: Steez A Question

Don't mean to rehash an older thread here, but it is better than making a new one... Just need to sell my Tatula HD to justify spending $360 on a reel, that will be the most I have ever dropped. Do the JDM Steez A XH have the drag clicker??? Yes, my jdm 8.1 has the clicking drag like a salt water r...

Re: Steez A Question

Don't mean to rehash an older thread here, but it is better than making a new one... Had a new thought... What about putting a Steez A spool into a Zillion SV TW? Whats the difference from a Steez A to the SS SV spool? I've tried the SS SV in the ZLN SV with good results with light top water popper...

Re: Steez A Question

I put the Steez SV tw g1 spool in my Steez A, and it made it an awesome reel. I can get longer skips with less brakes using the Steez A frame with Sv spool. I put the Steez A spool in my Steez SV tw an it is much better controlled in the Sv tw. Using the stock Steez A spool in the Steez A felt vey w...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Just got my hands on the new Alde 51 MGL HG. Had to order an 843 conquest to go with it. IMG_4744.JPG Is it me or is the finish more blue than gray on these new ones? To be honest this is the first Aldebaran I’ve got to handle in person, but under light it definitely has a hint of dark blue. When n...

Re: Where are the shimanos?

Just got my hands on the new Alde 51 MGL HG. Had to order an 843 conquest to go with it. IMG_4744.JPG Does the spool look much different than the JDM 30??? From what I can tell they are pretty much the same... I haven’t seen or handled the 30 in person but in pics and on video they look the same. I...
