Try it with the stock bearing after you flush it and put done light oil on it, you might be surprised.
Alright, I might as well give it a shot. I don't have a bearing for it yet, anyway.

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

I dont think that anyone has mentioned the Carrozzeria Honeycomb Spool for Monoblock. Retailing at over 30k yen, it's the most expensive spool in it's class that I have found. I've yet to figure out why it's priced 12k yen over the other MB Honeycomb spools. It does wiegh in at 8 grams, which is li...

Re: Help with my Sol

Also, always always always put some electrical tape on the lip of the spool underneath the tool. Otherwise you will scratch it.

Re: Help with my Sol

Since I last posted here I've acquired a zonda honeycomb spool, thanks Winstondry, and IMO it is made for use with ML-M rods, 1/8-5/8oz or more, 8-14# or 20-40# braid. It is awesome for spinnerbaits, keitechs, and other typical bass baits that aren't particularly aerodynamic. I haven't tried skippi...

^^^I'm with you, Tony.^^^ Don't sell the honeycomb spool. Keep it and just buy the SV105 spool, if that's what you want.
👍Good advice, Tim Dog. I'm pretty sure the sv105 spool is a little shallower, so maybe just get both and use 15-20# braid on it and 8-12# fluoro on the honeycomb? Just an idea.

Ba haa! That guy is hard core. He blows away anything under 4 pounds.

He normally only throws tungsten, but if it's a dink it gets the lead, baby!

Re: Help with my Sol

3/8 and up, the stock spool is really great. Very good distance and still excellent control once dialed in. If you're looking for a good compromise, the sv105 spool is what you need. It can go pretty low, and still handle 1/2 oz. Thanks Alright, well then I may be looking to trade/sell my megabass ...

Re: Ned Rig CASTING only

Neds are compact, aerodynamic, and easy to cast. I mostly use an Alphas Air, 8# braid, and a light powered rod, but I've done just as well with a stock SS SV 103, 15# braid, and a ML. That Alphas Air is the bees knees, though. It'll sling a 1/32 jig head+TRD no problem. I doubt it could be meaningfu...

Re: RARE SPOOLs

What makes the Jdream spool special? It's light and has a softer spring, so it therefore casts lighter baits better. It's great for frogging because it has the capacity needed for heavy lines and the low weight needed to help launch weights at the bottom of the range for a H-XH rod. Plus it's one o...
